This was my first and last Dylan concert. I expected him to perform songs from his last album Rough and Rowdy but not to the exclusion of at least some of the songs we’ve loved from him for decades. It was my first time seeing him live and I was very disappointed that he hid behind his piano and didn’t have much to say to an audience that was ready for him to pick up his guitar and take us through his many hit songs. His band was great but they drowned out his lyrics. When he was done he walked off and no one clapped for an encore.

I didn't see Bob at the Met or even New England but in Shreveport Louisiana and he sounded like Peter Frampton talk box except more like a Gazoo. I was warned I wouldn't understand him but I wasn't ready for this little man cowered in the back of the stage behind his Piano which was not a Grand as earlier mentioned. More Sunday school. I love this man's music but I would prefer to sit on the porch and shoot the breeze with him than Let him embarrass himself. An Icon made decades ago.

Mr Dylan had a good voice but was drowned out by the guitars. I couldn't here the words either. In all due respect. Keep on writing the great songs and retire the stage.

2.0 star rating Tamara Lynn from Boise, Idaho


Okay, I recognized 2 of the songs. Granted, many were new. I think I will blame the terrible acoustics on the sound engineers, but I could not make out more than 5 lines of what Bob was singing. The stage was lit in a spooking dim yellow/orange tint and the band was quite stiff. He didn't play guitar at all and stood behind an upright piano expect for one song where he stepped out. He didn't do an encore, which was a surprise.

I give Bob 5 stars and the show 1 star. I'm glad I went and saw him live. His body can no longer perform the way his mind and soul want to. His voice is strong but weak in articulation. He is to weak to stand and sing for the most part. His literary genius oozes from him and it was great to feel that in his presence. He's obviously doing his best with what he's got. That's better then anyone of us. A lesson in youth is wasted on the youth.

2.0 star rating Linda Potvien from Salt Lake City, Utah


Our cameras were locked up which was a good thing, as no one could visually see him nor understand his songs. I grew up in the same city as Bob and he was not the BobI loved and knew. I feel sorry for us fans who hoped for his old songs. He didn’t sing he talked. Gave him 2 stars because he stood up 2 times. Maybe it wasn’t him on that stage. I’m happy he’s still alive but it may be time to end the touring. Sorry Bob.

1.0 star rating Dave & Molly from Montreal, Quebec


Dylan has always been one of my favorites. This was the 3rd time seeing him in Montreal, I was ready for another treat. Had fabulous $$$ seats 100 feet from Bob. The lights came up and there was Bob dressed in white, standing in front of the black, grand piano banging out his first tune in a surprisingly low pitch, gravely voice. His guitar lay across a chair a few feet away with his white brimmed hat atop, We would never hear that guitar or see him with hat on. Instead he alternated playing old and new songs either sitting or standing at the piano then grabbing a mic stand at the back wall of the stage as far from his audience as possible as he crooned old American standards. I came to see Dylan play guitar and sing like he meant it. Not a single word was uttered to his fans, not a smile, not a nod. Between songs he shuffled to a table to get a drink, hanging on to equipment as he walked. He looked old and disinterested. What an utter disappointment for me and my girlfriend.
