Bob Dylan 2000 Never Ending Tour

Touring Band
Bob Dylan:
vocal, electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica
Larry Campbell: electric and acoustic guitar, back-up vocal, fiddle, pedal steel and lap steel guitar, electric & acoustic slide guitar, dobro, bouzouki, mandolin
Charlie Sexton: electric and acoustic guitar, back-up vocal
Tony Garnier: double bass and bass guitar
David Kemper: drums

Five legs with an unchanged band: US spring tour; Europe spring tour; US summer tour; Europe fall tour; US fall tour. Only one double bill: with Phil Lesh & Friends in the US summer tour.
Even more acoustic songs this year, especially in the encores. More and more the years 1999-2002 are referred to as Dylan’s blue grass period. Amazingly Dylan is singing better in every show, is prominent as a guitarist and his band is growing tighter day by day. The concerts are of such a constant high level and so many different songs are played that Crystal Cat alone released 15 bootlegs of the European September and October dates.

Every night Dylan opened his acoustic set with a cover or traditional: I Am The Man, Thomas (Ralph Stanley/Larry Sparks); Oh Babe It Ain’t No Lie (Elizabeth Cotten); Duncan And Brady (trad.); Roving Gambler (trad.); Hallelujah, I’m Ready To Go (trad.); Somebody Touched Me (trad.).
Things Have Changed is a new Dylan song, written for the film soundtrack Wonderboys. The song was played at the majority of the 2000 shows.
