He was worse than awful. All these 'whoa dude' wannabe deep thinkers that worship him are sheep. Come on, his voice was always bad but we knew that so it wasn't a problem. He hid behind the piano player the whole time. His greatness was in the sixties and that's what we wanted to hear. He has to know this but chooses to play other indecipherable stuff. I'm sure if he reads this type of review he and his handlers will conclude these are the low thinkers who don't get it. We do get it but unfortunately you don't. $127.50 I'll never get back.

Saw Dylan’s Albuquerque performance at the Kiva Auditorium. I‘m not a big fan and got tickets free, so I came in with no real expectations and every wish to enjoy whatever was on offer. I was still disappointed. It one of the most ridiculously bad concerts I’ve ever attended. As others here mention, Dylan didn’t say a word to the audience besides a muttered mention of the other musicians toward the end, but I wouldn’t have cared a bit about that if the performance had been interesting. Here, he didn’t play a single remotely familiar song. All stuff off his new album, I guess. Repetitive uninspired honkeytonky music and the most inane and self-indulgent lyrics possible (e.g., “Key West is THE best”). You could feel the audience collectively give up hope one hour in. Dylan is famously arrogant, but it appears he’s also boring and unethical now too. It’s a big deal for people in poor states like New Mexico, especially his largely over-60 fan base, to shell out for shows like this and then often to drive a couple of hours to reach the venue, but it seemed Dylan couldn’t care less. Since tickets to his whole tour probably sold out before the first reviews could be published anywhere, and since there likely never will be another tour, it looks like he decided to grab the money and give absolutely nothing to fans who have stayed with him over half a century.

I love music and song but what I witnessed last night at the Bob Dylan concert was like a dive bar band music there was no song only bad poetry being presided the music could have been better if they’re sound man had done his job couldn’t hardly hear Dylan and when you did it was bad. I’ve seen other bands at the BJCC concert hall and they were great sound vocals so I know it wasn’t the location. Dylan came out from behind the piano a few times and he had to hold onto the microphone the man didn’t look like he should even be there. So it makes me wonder who is making him do these so called shows and why he is too frail to be doing a grueling tour his voice seems to be gone and his sound man didn’t even help him out. His band was the best thing there was for the so called show.

Been a huge fan since the third grade. Finally gat to see him in Tulsa 2022 and absolutely positively for sure horribly let down. W0W he really let me down. I was so psyched to see him live.. especially with aa very expensive up front seat and what a major beer. One hour and forty minutes of fraud. Not one classic song. I will not count serve somebody. Avoid his concerts.and you'll continue to like him

1.0 star rating from Portland, Oregon


Almost 2 hours of Bob Dylan talking/vocalizing, not singing. Every “song” sounded the same, not one BD hit the whole night. No energy, not a word to the audience, band that used the same basic beat and sound on every song, and (again) not ONE epic Bob Dylan hit. Felt embarrassed for him but more for the audience. Dylan is milking his career and ripping off his fans for more money; doesn’t he have enough? Worst concert in my lifetime. No encore either, but that was probably better for everyone.

1.0 star rating C.B. from Seattle, Washington


I went to see Bob Dylan June 1, 2022 at the Paramount in Seattle. I am not a huge Dylan fan, but respect his place in music history. His song writing legacy is incredible. That said, this was an awful concert and occupies the spot at the worst concert I have seen in my long concert attending history. As others have said, his singing is no longer comprehensible (it was challenging even 40 years ago!) and he doesn't actually sing. It feels like being at a poetry recital with a band accompanying the poet, which may be semi enjoyable if you could understand the words! He didn't play any of his incredible hit list, and seemed disengaged from the audience. Very disappointing and we left half way through -- I couldn't get my money back, but at least I could get the last hour of my time back!

1.0 star rating Mo from Seattle, Washington


Seen Bob Dylan last night in Seattle. Sorry but I would not pay to see this legendary artist again. Complete disappointment couldn’t understand any of the lyrics. I seen legendary artists before like Santana twice and did not disappoint. I think the touring for Bob is to sell his latest album! We left before the show was over.
