Review by PhilTheTills

Firstly, a big thanks to O2 for the new venue,its a vast improvement on the old Point,especially the sound quality which was fantastic. Must admit I was a little disapointed with the set list from the first night,with the exception of course of the Premier of "Houston", however, Bobs seemingly improved mood,and the tightness of the band, did augar well for the second show..We were not to be disapointed a second time ! From the moment they struck into Wicked Messenger I had the much longed for feeling of a "great show" beginning...Bob was on fire !, to most seasoned Dylan freaks, I think the Set List speaks for itself,and I will leave it to others to dissect it.From my point of view,after 150 plus shows this was right up there.Totally Fan***** tastic. Comisserations to my friends Nick,John,and Danny who couldnt make the trip....sorry guys you missed a classic. To anyone else who was there and didnt enjoy..a simple message..Dont go again, Dylan isnt for you, Dublin 6th May was The Man at the height of his powers, and

Review by Ger Daly

Stellar show. In very rude form from the start Bob and band sang and played the best I've seen for sometime. The Irish crowd, fancy new venue, having a No. 1 record, all was right on the cards but after the pretty lame show at the roundhouse/London I was holdin back on gettin too hopeful and prepared for some disappointment but still hopin for those shining moments.
...
By now we were clearly in for a very memorable show.  Under the Red Sky was a sweet surprise especially Bob's guitar which went on all kinds of new levels and for some time too i thought, love to hear more of this. Honest with me was faultless.  HIghway 61 a blast though not as wild as I remember from Dublin 05 it still sounded pretty cool, the instru breaks all tight. Though this song could allow ample room for some searing guitar work, leaving a blaze in its wake as it trundles past, I got the feeling that's not allowed anymore. Aint Talkin' was better than on record for me. Thunder on the Mountain also still sounding fresh.
...
Of course the surprise of hearing the new but instant classic riff of If You ever go to Houston was worth admission alone. Amazing response from all. Bob lovin it. I'll never forget the looks of glee and 'hey this a blast man' between Tony and George everytime Bob hit those chords on the organ. After the gorgeous finale of Blowin in the Wind I thought they may have come back for one more, crowd goin mad. but hey there's still tommorrow! Roll on Bob. Anyone goin to a US show this summer sure in for a treat. 

Review by Markus Prieur
I had seen one US debut before, and several European debuts, but to be a part of the audience during the actual live premiere of a newly recorded Dylan song is one kind of special concert experience I never had before, and which is all the more enjoyable when a song is nailed like that the first time around, and you are standing close to the stage, mere four steps away from the rail.

Review by John Dunne
Even Freeman, whose occasional jazz nuances caught my attention on that Amazon show, seldom transcended the mundane. How I wished for the furious, instinctive trading of licks that characterised Larry and Charlie's time in the band. Here comes heresy, but for his very occasional flashes of eccentric brilliance, I would prefer Freddie Koella to either of the current guys. Kimball in particular seems a real passenger. Yes, I know he did a good job on the acoustic Don't Think Twice, but so would any average finger-style guitarist. I'm sure both players have musical pedigrees as long as my arm but, based on what I heard, I hope Dylan puts them out to grass as soon as possible. And I won't be too disappointed if Donnie Herron rides off onto the sunset as well. Apart from his banjo on Highwater, his presence added little or nothing to the nights. Multi-instrumentalist? To my ears, he's more a jack of all trades and master of none who, when called upon to swing during Floater, for instance, fell flat on his face. Make no mistake about it, these shows were elevated above the ordinary by the magic of Bob Dylan and Bob Dylan alone. Well.. with considerable help from the audience and his rhythm section. Apropos the latter, Tony Garnier in particular was outstanding. Always solid as the proverbial rock, his four strings were also more adventurous than the twelve of the other guys. And surely it's time to acknowledge Dylan's keyboard-playing? Of course he's no Beethoven, but what he does have is a percussive style which propels the music and occasionally surprises you with some melodic flourishes.

Review by Kieran Flood
He sang ‘Shelter from the Storm’ – which was startling. And he sang ‘Hattie Carroll’ with such an accusing tone that I bet William Zanzinger was sitting in the front row. He sang the glorious ‘I dreamed I saw St Augustine’ – and although the beloved saint wasn’t ‘put to his death’ as Bob surely knows, mention any saint to me and my soul soars. He dreamed he saw St Augustine, and I dreamed of all the martyrs, God-lovers and saints who fill my waking hours with hope. He sang ‘The Ballad of Hollis Brown’ and I don’t think he forgot a word of it. Tough blues. And when he gasped the words “pray to the Lawd”, I prayed for mercy, searching the rafters of the hall with sadness. After the encore he split. We cheered and whistled, and when I turned around a pretty woman was glowing. “He ain’t coming back,” I told her. It was for her own good. She screamed up towards the stage. “I know these things, sweetheart, after ‘Rolling Stone’ and ‘Watchtower’, that’s it. He doesn’t return.” I surmised that he was in a car by now, chancing his arm in the blocked up traffic. But guess what? It was encroyable. Angel Face was correct. I think he musta known about my friend – ‘The Eagle’. I could think of nothing else when he returned, country charm beneath a wide rimmed hat, and performed a word perfect ‘Forever Young.’ He doesn’t do that – he doesn’t come back, but he did. Some blokes grumbled that he never spoke, and I asked them what they wanted him to talk about. Does he disrespect his audience? Hardly, since it’s his 4th time round for Ireland in as many years. Downside? On the way out some clown said that he couldn’t sing – that he was an invalid. Give yourself a shake son, I told him, and I headed for the door.
