Kitchener / Ontario - Memorial Auditorium


Bob Links

Review by Daniel Maoz

This being the fifth Dylan concert I have attended since moving to Ontario in 2000 (including shows at Toronto and Hamilton), it was also the first floor level vantage I have enjoyed. I never imagined it could make such a difference. I realize that it is possible that no matter where I sat this was still going to be by far the best sound I have ever heard (even considering past concerts in Chicago, Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Toronto from the 70s, 80s, and 90s). I felt that Bob was actually enjoying himself on stage as opposed to the classic duty-bound introverted performances I often ascribed his past shows to be. Also, it truly was a show as well as a concert. Dylan convincingly acted out the role of "king" that he forcefully sang out in his encore song, "Jolene." Whenever he took centre stage - microphone in one hand and harp in the other - swaying and hand gesturing as if in a vaudeville act - I couldn't help but recall his interviewed-reference to Caruso that Pennebaker captured on film in the 1967 documentary, Dont Look Back. 'Every bit as good as Caruso,' I thought to myself. And it may have been the influence of actually seeing Dylan's blue eyes through the binoculars I brought with me, but I also imagined hearing the fine crooning of reincarnated blue-eyes himself at times. Local critics, I think, misunderstood the relative silence of the near-capacity arena crowd. For my part, it was a silence of awe that did not want to not miss a single reinvented sound coming from the master of mystic anonymity. Whoever he has been in the past (and I loved every one of his former expressions), the Bob Dylan of November 7, 2009 channeled an amazingly powerful presence. And to think I would ever be able to walk from my house to a Dylan concert only a few blocks away! Thank you, Bob Dylan, for choosing Kitchener, Ontario, Canada for one of your stops on this year's tour! Daniel Maoz
