18. APRIL 2009
Florence / Italy - Mandela Forum


Bob Links

Review by Claudio Manara
This show is like a perfect wall of sound that opens every night and always might be offering jewels. Nothing is quite expected and everything could happen. So, it may happen that Bob once again plays Dean Martin’s ‘Return To Me’, as he did play in Rome the night before. This was a cover and a gift presented to Italy, but, most likely the magic moment was meant to last one single night and, I was wrong: here comes Bob playing that song once again, along with the final verse in Italian: ritorna a me…solo tu solo tu mio grande amore!!!! (never be sure about nothing in front of a Dylan concert). This was the highlight of these Italian nights.

Review by Snijezana Matejcic

Can't believe nobody wrote a word about that night in Mandela forum in Florence yet. It was just unbelievable - pictures and music in my ears is still so vivid - so many young peole in front of the stage singing from the top of their lungs and Bob responding playing and singig out of joy, it seemed. I've been on one cocert a year since the lounching of Never ending tour, each time in a different town, mostl Ital, and I think this is a highlight so far. Dylan concerts have been my intelectual and emotional energizers, and this one might last for a few months. I love BD!

Review by Francesco Ciuffi

Next was Times Changin, once a favourite of mine, and then the first surprise, Visions of Johanna, in a reworked arrangement that really shines. To Ramona and Tangled were business as usual, (I dont even remember how many times I’ve heard Tangled) but were really well played. Then, after a nice Baby Blue, on to the electric set. With a solid version of a weak tune, Country Pie. The first notes of It Takes a Lot Laugh, in a slow bluesy mode, brought a huge cheer on everybody’s face. A great version, with some nice soloing by Bob & the boys, with a strong vocal delivery. A great addiction to my live Dylan experience. I was expecting to hear Can’t Wait (in Modena it was simply amazing, the song has really benefited of the new arrangment) but Bob put out of the basket another heavyweight from the old days: Simple Twist of Fate was greeted by the crowd with a huge roar and Drifter’s Escape opened the way to another huge HYW 61. Now, what else can be said about this rollin kickin number? It kicked ass, as usual, and it went even longer than usual! Highway marked the end of the first set, and we were ready for Love Sick to open the second part. The first notes of this new classic brought cheers on Irene’s face, and the song was performed with a superb vocal delivery and nice playing, and even Bob’ solo was better than usual. Unfortunatly, LARS was, once again a complete mess, ehi Bob, what’s up with this song? It Aint Me Baby was another great pick, as well as Maggie’s Farm. The usual combo Rainy Day>Blowin (I personally refer to this as “throwin-in-the-towel”) predictably ended the show and sent a satisfied crowd back home.
