YOU GET WHAT HE GIVES YOU

I went to the Heinz Hall show in Pittsburgh with high hopes but low expectations. My expectations were barely met. After the show I came to this realization. Dylan doesn't give you what you want. He doesn't even try to figure out what you want and get it wrong. He doesn't care. He gives you what he wants - take it or leave it. I didn't like it but wasn't surprised.

CAN'T SING

The band was great...but, seriously, his voice is completely shot...and I would challenge anyone to tell me they could understand a word he uttered the entire evening. He's a legend....but, at 78, he's no performer. Sorry, that's the truth.

STL 10.22.19

His band sounded good, his harmonica playing was still mostly good. I couldn't understand more than a few words that came out of his mouth, growling garbled noises was all I heard. I couldn't recognize any of his songs. It was still fun because it's been years since we have been to a concert. So if your just going for a good time you don't mind hearing all of his old songs changed into 12 bar blues that are mostly unrecognizable then go to the garden party you wont recognize his songs but you will know his name. "but it's alright now learned my lesson well ya see you can't please everyone so ya got to please yourself." He seemed to please only himself.

DYLAN AT THE BEACON 11/26/2019

My wife and I are big Dylan fans but last night was very disappointing. Unfortunately his voice is gone and he changed the arrangements so much it was hard to recognize any songs. The concert started around 8PM and was suppose to go til around 10 but my wife and I agreed and we left at 9

MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT

This was my first and last Dylan concert. I expected him to perform songs from his last album Rough and Rowdy but not to the exclusion of at least some of the songs we’ve loved from him for decades. It was my first time seeing him live and I was very disappointed that he hid behind his piano and didn’t have much to say to an audience that was ready for him to pick up his guitar and take us through his many hit songs. His band was great but they drowned out his lyrics. When he was done he walked off and no one clapped for an encore.

AGHAST

I didn't see Bob at the Met or even New England but in Shreveport Louisiana and he sounded like Peter Frampton talk box except more like a Gazoo. I was warned I wouldn't understand him but I wasn't ready for this little man cowered in the back of the stage behind his Piano which was not a Grand as earlier mentioned. More Sunday school. I love this man's music but I would prefer to sit on the porch and shoot the breeze with him than Let him embarrass himself. An Icon made decades ago.

IT'S TIME TO LEAVE THE STAGE

Mr Dylan had a good voice but was drowned out by the guitars. I couldn't here the words either. In all due respect. Keep on writing the great songs and retire the stage.
