Review by Annie

Nettie Moore remakes my evening when it's needed most. Donnie's fiddle is silky and sad. The first lines of the song are almost spoken, quietly and clearly. The hurdy-gurdy riffs of the keyboards guide this number, and Bob's voice is great on it, rising in midline -- "Oh I MISS ya Nettie Moore." Once he hesitates, then repeats, the personal pronoun a string of times: "I I I I'm ridin with you ..." This one number would have been worth ticket price. Highway 61 is a carnival tonight, and he delivers it almost like a carnival barker: come and see the show. After, he goes to talk with George and Tony, and they launch into Workingman's Blues -- Donnie great on this one. Bob seems to be looking forward to Newfoundland already, very conscious of where he is, when he sings so clearly a line about being tossed by the winds, the seas. He punches out that beautiful qualifier of "continual" crime. He sings the line brand new wife with a touch of something, It's Alright Ma is funked up, words not as clear. Muddy sound from the band. He tumble-falls at the end of the long lines: "dyyyyyyyyyyyying," "naaaaaaaaaaked." It's hard to make out the other words except from close by. The rest of the front row return, and a tall man in Rem Koolhaas glasses demands stridently, "is he picking it up?" I play dumb out of contentiousness and smile brightly and stupidly at him. Bob answers him for me by launching into Spirit on the Water, which makes me laugh. He's got another smile for Donnie, who has entirely inherited the Bob head-move while playing. Wrong harp. Roadie flies up with the right one, sets it behind Oscar. Bob puts a sweet coda to the song with it. Suddenly I realize he's the only one on stage who never sips water despite the heat, and the sweat rolling down them all by the end. No one dances to Summer Days.

Review by Randy Lister
I lived in Ontario for several years and the security thugs at concerts were oppressive with menacing looks, body searches and generally rude and intimidating. In Halifax someone tears your ticket, smiles and urges you to "Enjoy the show." I love it here!!! Another couple of drinks and we settled into our seats just after Bob stepped on stage and played the first notes. Dylan's voice was a bit creaky to start off but after the third song when they swapped the acoustic guitars for electric the band was in full rocking swing and so was Bob's voice. Leaning into the mike with one knee cocked spitting the lyrics at us. The predictably mixed crowd was educated in all things Bob and acknowledged the choruses and solos with great applause. I could see that Bob was getting energy from the crowd reaction responding with lots of looks, hip swings and guitar posing. When the band played Tangled Up in Blue they really hit their stride and made the us all aware of what we were in for. I have seen this song played 5-6 times live and it never really had an impact on me until last night. The extended instrumental portion nearing the end with the three guitars trading licks and Charlie leaning over to Bob edging him on to push it further had me mesmerized. Another highlight was Masters of War. The 3 guitar attack was shining - breathing extraordinary life into this masterpiece. Larry's soloing had Charlie and Bob trading poses and icy licks. Not to be outdone Bob stole the show at times playing lead. He was " on " tonight.
