When the best part of your concert event is the newly renovated Met and the outstanding food at Osteria, you know it's going to be a bad night. A 60th birthday present from my daughter who is a singer and astute listener of all music. She knows how much I love Dylan's music and wanted to take me to see him for the first time. It was an utter embarrassment. Dylan voice itself was as good and raw it's always been but we couldn't understand a word as he mumbled and garbled every word. His arrangement changes on some songs such as Like a Rolling Stone, were shockingly discordant to the essence of the song. And for 1 hour and 30 minutes, as we sat hoping things would get better, he didn't muster one single word of welcome, thanks, or appreciation to his audience of 3,500. As we walked out on Bob 30 minutes early, he had me feeling badly for my daughter who certainly lost some respect for one of the musical heroes I spent years extolling. Bob my friend, it's time to retire.

First off I am not a huge fan of Dylan but I was still looking forward to seeing him. As soon as the concert started I was straining hard to understand him. I was hoping that he would get himself together and not mumble but that never happend and my friend and I walked out and were very upset. We were in the second balcony almost at the last row and still paid about 140 with taxes and "convenience" fees and Dylan was just terrible the whole time. I have never walked out of a concert before but I just had to this was a terrible experience and Dylan should be ashamed and Beacon Theatre art should consider refunding people.

I would have walked out but paid so much for excellent seats. We thought the sound would get better. You couldn’t understand ANYTHING he sang. Epic FAIL

1st time seeing the iconic Bib Dylan. Didn’t recognize any of his hits. Didn’t understand any of the lyrics sung. He never said a word to the audience who paid too much money for his concert weeks before Christmas . Hey Bob....stop touring. And by the’re welcome for the donation to your already large bank account.

Have seen many great concerts at the Beacon. When the place gets rocking the energy fills the concert hall. Sorry to say it did not happen on Thursday Nov 27th show at the Beacon. Agree with much of what others had said. While it was wonderful to see the legend, it was a low energy show and many of those sitting in expensive seats around me left early.

What a disaster it was last night at The Beacon. Please save your money. Terrible show. His voice was off and the band was way not as good as I remember. I barely knew 3 songs, my girlfriend one song. You suck Bob !

1.0 star rating Martha Moran from New York, New York


Completely devoid of any energy or effort on Dylan's part. Every single song was arranged the same, had the same tempo and the same (non) melody. It was incredibly boring. Dylan clearly put little to no effort into the show or the rearrangements of his greatest hits. He said not one word--no welcome, no thanks, did not introduce his (very good) band. I guess he's laughing all the way to the bank.
