Live, sometimes he is excellent, other times not. Just checked my list and this is the 13th time since 1978 I have caught him live and some I am struggling to remember for the right reasons, like Feb 1990 at Hammersmith, or 1995 at Brighton and I expect the memories of this to remain too.
Last time round (2015) there was a smile in his step but I wasn’t blown away by the repertoire.
Tonight at the London Palladium he and the band were on sparkling form, reinvigorated. I was expecting rain and got brilliant sunshine.
Mix of Dylan through the years, some remodeled, and some from the old american songbook. Desolation Row was delightful. Highway 61, Tangled Up In Blue…. pure bliss.
