Review by Martin Gayford

The show started really positively with Don't Think Twice and Tangled Up In Blue which, along with Po' Boy and Tryin' To Get To Heaven were the highlights of the night for me.  Million Miles was good too.  By the time Rollin' & Tumblin' started, something was causing Bob to fret frown, shake his head and glare at Stu Kimbell quite a bit.  He also just stood, leaning one hand on the keyboard for a bit, turning his back to the crowd a few times, which I'd never seen him do before (worth the price of admission alone!!).   Bob's spotlight was very bright, and he theatrically wiped a pool of sweat from his nose at one point, so maybe that was a problem, but during the band intros, Bob said something about Stu going to rehab ("No, no, no.."?), to which Stu glared at Bob and asked Tony to repeat it. The arrangement of Po' Boy is lovely, with more of a punch than on the album, great harmonica as on the old songs at the start.  Actually, almost every song had quite a punch, it's just that when things didn't seem to be working smoothly for him, the punch was more of a kicking to the ground than an rousing fist in the air.

Review by Rebecca Harley

During a heart-rending "Chimes of Freedom", I found tears rolling down my face, much to my amazement and embarrassment. "Hattie Carroll", "Workingman's Blues" and "Hollis Brown" were delivered differently this time, less as psychological dramas emerging from inside the songs and inside Dylan, but as potent social stories delivered as powerful hard-hitting journalism. "Highway 61" was a stunner. he was thrilled, everyone was thrilled. He went and high-fived Donnie Herron afterwards - and here is another change too. In previous years, I've thought that Donnie has looked at his wit's end and scared. Last night he was animated and smiling hugely and ther was a vibrant and friendly rapport between him and Bob. George Recile and Tony Garnier both fantastic. Husband felt it a shame that Bob has so much control that he doesn't let the guitarists cut loose and fly, but that's not what the music is about at the moment. He loved "Spirit on the Water" Son loved "Things Have Changed".

Indipendent

Review by Mr Jinx
In truth, though, this was not Dylan at the top of his game tonight. The voice, a thing of rich melody the previous evening had become a dry, parched husk and it was hard to engage fully with the songs when they were presented in such a stark and unforgiving manner. That said - and things are never quite straightforward with Dylan - the version of Don't Think Twice was both tender and moving and Spirit on the Water hit the mark as it has done with pleasing regularity on this tour. Generally, though, I felt that he never quite nailed what he was going for in this set . This felt uncomfortable to witness in direct contrast to the elation and joy of the night before. But when so many lie dead in Virginia and there is a show to play perhaps 'feeling comfortable' is not really on the top of anyone's priority list.
(Bob Links)

Review by Paul Gill

An atmospheric rendition of "Ain't talkin'", with a great violin sound and yet another reasonable guitar solo. "Summer days" finally got some people behind me up dancing. "Like a rolling stone" just gets better and better. 1st encore number was "Thunder on the mountain". Another one that ROCKED. We then had the band intros in a very pleasant and understandable way. First time I've ever been able to understand what he's said at this point. To finish we had the expected "All along the watchtower", but I hadn't heard this version, and I thought it was fabulous. We then got a very long wave and bow from the whole band. The way Bob did this made me think he's not going to return to this venue. Maybe I'm wrong. All-in-all this was the best gig I've ever been to. Just had to come home and share it with you all. This man just keeps getting better and better. I'm even tempted to go to Birmingham tomorrow. That's later today now of course. You know what? I'm going. I don't have a ticket but I'm gonna go and try my luck. Surely I'll get at least one played from my wish list.

Review by Martin Gayford
Unfortunately, the band did not impress. In fact, they were far better in Bournemouth last year. Stu Kimball and Tony Garnier are fine, but nothing special (Tony must be one hell of a card player to warrant re-employment in Bob's band for the 18th year running). George is okay, but I noticed a few slip ups from him, and he is still far less subtle than David Kemper. The only instrument I heard anything substantial played from the little guy at the back was the violin in Nettie Moore, the rest of the evening he could have spent in the bar it would have made very little difference. The lead guitarist (Donnie? Dennie?) is be becoming increasingly boring to watch, and listen to. Only one song (When The Deal Goes Down) had an inspired solo from him, and many songs featured such inane doodling, I started wondering if he was sick in the head. And he's so dull to watch - at least Freddy Koella had a personality. Finally, Bob's voice was strong on the opening songs, but it was pretty rough on several others, far more so than last year. It was great to see him out front with guitar - how about making the organ a 4 song experiment instead of the other way round, Bob?

Review Neil Millar
Dylan has been performing only 16 songs a night on average but, according to the statistics and the set lists which are diligently posted on the internet each night, he has played over 50 different songs during the five nights at Brixton and around 90 different songs during the first 29 concerts of this European tour. I can’t think of many other current performers who would attempt such a feat. Several of these 90-odd songs have been played only once on this tour and have, at times, have sounded a little under-rehearsed. A typical Dylan performance can seem a little rough around the edges at times, but this is one of the things I love about Dylan as a live performer..

Review Graham Cole
After You Go Your Way came a sweetly subdued version of Million Miles which I really enjoyed. To back up Bob's vocals, the instrumentation was sparse, and at times positively slinky, the short solos emerging as if from nowhere and then creeping back into the undergrowth in a most mysterious way. Lovely! Mobile was an efficient workout, which gave way to Hard Rain, a performance I positively loved. Both Bob and the band seemed to be playing with this tune, to see what they could get out of it, the singer in particular trying all possible ways to squeeze something new out of every "it's a hard rain", and the whole song building to a magnificent crescendo on the last verse, to be greeted with a very strong reception from the crowd

Review Graham Cole
Bob played some excellent harp again tonight, but did not come centre stage
 to do so, although he made several walkabouts to confer with the band, most notably with Tony, who really seemed to be enjoying himself. For most around
 me, Mississippi was outstanding, and since it was one Duncan and I were
 putting on a wish-list for tonight's show at seven o'clock, satisfaction was
thus delivered. And so, the pure country of Waiting For You aside, we wound
down to a familiar trio for the last three songs.

Review Graham Cole
But then! Ah yes, here it is, the bit I paid my ticket price for, to be repaid in a way that will stay with me for a long time. Yes Johanna is already a great song, and yes, I've been lucky enough to hear some fine versions in concert, and even if the original on BOB (and a colleague at work, Iain the Fish told me today he was just revisiting those fabulous early albums so Iain I thought of you on this one!) is probably unbeatable, tonight Visions of Johanna was truly wonderful, and, yes, sublime. Bob positively purred as "Louise and her lover so entwined" against the starry sky backdrop, and as he sang of the nightwatchman, and the ghost of electricity, one of my favourite painters, Edward Hopper, came to mind. I think he could have painted that song

Review Steve Haines
I'd been hoping for an improvement on the Nottingham gig. One of the key reasons being that I've dragged Tina, my wife, to "ordinary" shows (if there is such a thing) at the NEC, whilst she's missed some crackers (Cardiff 2000, Hammersmith Apollo last UK tour). Luckily on Sunday it pretty much all came together - great venue, sound well mixed, and Bob in good voice. As a measure for me the strong performances from Nottingham (It's all right Ma, Highway 61) were performed just as well - but didn't really stand out. What did stand out for me were an absolutely superb Desolation Row and a masterful Don't Think Twice and a very enjoyable New Morning - not one I'd heard before. There was some fantastic Harmonica playing and echoes of the curious and very funny walk / dance.

Review by Rebecca Harley
This was a different kind of Dylan gig, but why he inspires such vituperative fury is unclear. Not present on Sunday at the Fleadh was the transcendent interpretive performance art of complexity, paradox and internality that blazed from his London performances in November, instead there was another surprising kind of intimacy being offered up for scrutiny. Here was happy Dylan having a good time playing rollicking good rock music with his old best mate from Blighty. "Fuck off Ronnie," yelled someone from the crowd as it became obvious that the set was being designed to enable him to participate. And yes, he was irritating with his gurning antics, but he was irritating in exactly the same way at the Stones gigs last summer. However, the affection between The Old Inscrutable and Mr. Punch was touchingly obvious, with Ronnie unable to keep his hands off Dylan, at one point almost cuddling him.

Although Dylan played his now usual 17-song set each night, he played a total of 36 different songs during the three shows (if I've counted correctly). Of course, set lists don't tell the whole story. These were also great performances. I know such things are highly subjective, but I thought Dylan and the Band were quite outstanding at these three shows. It would be hard to chose between them, but he seemed to get better each night. Dylan gave a virtuoso performance at Brixton and, at the risk of sounding corny, it was a privilege to be there. He may an old man, but at these final shows of his European tour Dylan was close to his best. I suppose this is why we keep buying the tickets!

Review by Graham Cole
However, let me add a bit more. After last night's amazing setlist and the full experience at the Shepherds Bush Empire, I like many others, was wondering what Bob would do next. Would he revert to the Arena setlist or delve further into his treasure trove of songs with another glittering display of different songs for the crowd. He must have been aware that many in each night's audience have followed him around the country as best they could and might welcome a further change of songs, and the evidence of last night showed just how much they appreciated the astonishing range of songs he produced at that wonderfully intimate venue. In the event tonight was a mix of the arena-familiar and the wonderful surprises.

Review by Mark Sturgis
I think that this is a show where Dylan fans from around the world will look incredulously at the set list and check the date to ensure that it's not 1st April. But, as I said above, the set-list only tells part of the story. There were indeed some fantastic highlights. For me, it was Quinn The Eskimo, Down Along The Cove, Positively 4th Street, Dear Landlord and Jokerman. The performance of Dear Landlord, always one of my favourite Dylan songs, was worth the entrance fee alone. What was also fantastic to see was the response of the audience, particularly those close to me, who, when they recognised the intro's to songs like Jokerman and Dear landlord went absolutely nuts. Let's hope this enthusiasm got to Dylan and he'll do similarly diverse sets at the Hammersmith and Brixton.

Review by Toby Richards - Carpenter
Though 'Desolation Row' was tremendous, if I could pick a single 'Bob Moment' of brilliance from the show, it wouldn't come from that song. Nor would it come from the rejuvenated, fired-up 'Like A Rolling Stone' to which we were treated as an encore. My vote would go to the final passage of 'Mr. Tambourine Man', a goose-bump sequence that only Bob Dylan is capable of crafting. It was the old 'triumph in adversity' trick again. This was a version that, for two thirds of its duration, was far from magical - curtailed phrasing and 'up-singing', allied to a flat-sounding band, killed the thrill felt from the opening chords. Into the final verse, however, Bob began to latch onto the words, until with the final refrain he found the answer: "In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come following yooouuuuuu…….." The last word was delivered straight down the middle of the high and low notes he'd veered between for the whole song - finally, he'd realised the purity and drama 'Mr. Tambourine Man' had lacked this evening. Then Bob grabbed a harmonica and cast his dancing spell - at this point, he could do no wrong.

Review by Eben Hensby

If You See Her, Say Hello - This was the big surprise of the night. I saw Larry pull out the fiddle and I started getting excited…what were we getting? My Back Pages? To Be Alone With You? If You See Her, Say Hello? And as it started up I let out a little shout of excitement…it was If You See Her, Say Hello! Some notes on which lyrics he used: he sung "sometimes do" and "through and through", and he sung "bone" and "alone". Then there were two lyric changes I caught: he sung "she still lives inside my mind" instead of "heart" and he also sung (I missed writing down the parts represented by "…") "…quick, / please don't mention her name to me … just makes me sick". This, along with You're A Big Girl Now from Birmingham, makes two Blood On The Tracks songs with lyric changes.

Review by Richard Maynard

Another Saturday night, another Bob show, after last week's outing to Brighton. What a difference a week makes.Bob has only had one night off since then and it's starting to show. After a storming opener of 'I Am The Man, Thomas' we had one of the worst renditions of 'The Times They Are A Changin' I've heard for ages, as Bob struggled to find his voice and gabbled through the words.In fact it took Bob an hour to really find his voice, and much of the singing was indifferent compared to a week before. 'Visions Of Johanna', despite some lovely playing from the band, was almost unrecognisable to begin. That said, it was certainly a more interesting set than last week, less dependant on crowd-pleasers, and so there was a rare outing for the likes of 'Blind Willie McTell' and 'Solid Rock', and a nice 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright'. It was a shorter set tonight, with fewer encores, but I think the old boy enjoyed himself, judging by the way he dropped down to one knee at the end. Now what was that all about...

Review by Richard Maynard
What I have always wanted to study was how Dylan changes his lyrics to suit his mood and outlook. It was his various treatments of "Twist of Fate", which originally inspired this interest. What changes in Dylan's outlook must have come about for him to change: "He woke up the room was bare, he didn't see her anywhere. He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide", into: "He woke up and she was gone. He didn't see nothing but the dawn. Got out of bed and put his clothes back on, pushed back the blind."? (Budokan, 1978). I took my notebook with me to Wembley Arena on the evening of Friday, October 6, hoping to note some similar lyrical shifts, but there were hardly any to speak of: except, that is, for a gem on "Memphis Blues Again", when "He just smoked my eyelids" became "He just smoked my eyeballs" - Ow! But for the most part, Dylan does not have to change his lyrics: he still feels them in the same way as when he wrote them. In fact, he is true to a tradition which goes back further than his own songs.

Then comes the highlight of the night to me...Larry opens with some chords i cant recognize...they sound 'Twist of fate' style but i know it's not like that...what's this??? then Bob goes 'the air is getting hotter...' i cant believe this version of Trying to get to heaven. Swingy, jazzy..Bob underlining every single word, it's just unbelievable and breathtaking... and my mind is blown away...
