Review by Derek Jacombs

Best of the night - to my surprise - was "Tangled Up In Blue", which has lost the acoustic guitar opening (even less for Stu to do!) and now runs the first two verses largely on a slow electric figure from Denny. George played brushes and was almost swinging it. Bob muffed the "Atlanta" verse, but recovered quickly and sang with focus and committment. He found a strange 3 note melody and rhythmically rapped the entire last verse... which actually sounded fantastic! Bob also got seriously jiggy with his "shoulder dance". It also had a lyric that I don't think I've heard before - "3 times he went out on the road and 3 times he got destroyed" (the New Orleans verse).

Review by Mike Reid

Random observations: Bob was on stage for around 2 hours. We got 17 songs, an increase on the 16 in the rest of New Zealand. But some of the extra time was some uncharacteristic pauses for discussion about what to do next. On the intro of one of the songs (perhaps Tell me...) Bob disappeared off stage for a time (not quite enough for a quick smoke...). He looked quite relaxed, seemed to be concentrating on playing some quite effective (though still limited) guitar and piano parts. Larry's playing supports this really well. Where we were I could hear the Larry's stage amps reasonably clearly. Perhaps he's out there on the other side by himself so he can play loudly... The giant "eye" on the curtain was cool. More than one person I spoke to imagined a Lord of the Rings connection. It was 4 and a half years since Bob played in New Zealand. Will we see him again in 2007? Maybe this really is the last time. I hope not, but perhaps that's what made Girl of the North Country seem so poignant for me..

Review by Andrew McCallum

Till I fell.. Blues drenched, but a little perfunctory. Concert seemed over too quickly. Again the mini concert of 5 encores was very good, and again it was the same 5 songs. No extras, no duets with Patty, which was what many were hoping for. Audience sang along on Blowin' in the wind After Forever Young and Bob's departure there was a good buzz among the crowd. Bob had delivered a pretty straight down the line show. It felt like a very New Zealand rock concert, and I'm not sure I can explain what that means. Something to do with the number of people wearing the bogan/westie uniform of tight tapered black jeans and Bob's choice of songs which seemed to cater to your average New Zealander's "idea" of Bob Dylan, while also being a very rockin' show. Bob smiled a lot during the later songs, and came forward to the edge of the stage to take his bows. And during the band introductions he said as odd thing along the lines of: At the Press Conference yesterday a few things were said that shouldn't have been said, and a few things were'nt said that *should* have been. Anyway, the promoter will straighten it all out later... " Press Conference??? There was *no* press conference.
