St. Petersburg / Russia - Ice Palace


Bob Links

Review by Jim Nolan

Maybe twenty people at the front barrier as it was standing on floor and a sprinkle of folk in the surrounding seats. Howlin Wolf, Sonhouse and Charlie Patton playing over the PA. We ended up standing in the second row with Bob to our right side. Fantastic spot. Oh and hello to Aya with the orange hair who was seeing her first Bob concert. I wont mention every song played but the first thrill for me was the 'new' Tangled. A sort of Bluegrass swing to it. better than the Helsinki version I thought. Bob sang the the new line "He drifted down to New Orleans..lucky to be employed..THREE TIMES ON A SAILING BOAT..THREE TIMES IT WAS DESTROYED. Wonderful! Levee was excellent. The band really went for it and Bob was throwing some serious shapes! John Brown was as haunting as ever. Every word sang crystal clear. Honest With Me is rockier than ever. George was pounding the drums so hard I thought he would disappear through the stage floor in a puff of smoke. Just Like a Woman was another high light. Lovely harp from Bob.Crowd kept singing chorus line throughout Its Alright Ma sounded fresh and new Working Mans Blues and Aint Talkin deserve a special mention. I think these two songs are up there with the best of Bobs forty odd year output of great songs. Both were fabulous tonight. Thunder on the Mountain and Like a Rolling Stone ended what was a magical and historic night in St Petersburg. I dont know how many people were at the show but it was like a club show in a biggish venue. The Russian crowd were great, cheering and dancing at the intro to each song.
