Bob Dylan

2013 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 85 shows, 60 different songs played
Touring band: Bob Dylan (piano, harp, vocals); Tony Garnier (electric and acoustic bass); George Recile (drums); Stu Kimball (rhythm guitar, maracas); Duke Robillard (electric lead guitar), replaced by Charlie Sexton after a short time; Donnie Herron (violin, banjo, electric mandolin, pedal steel, lap steel).
A radical change in the Never Ending Tour. It's done with the ever changing set lists which often confuses his band members. With a few radical exeptions (the explanation for the 60 different songs played) Dylan plays a standard set list.
Very witty, Dylan opens almost every concert (the coming years) with Things has Changed. The rather short set list, with 14 songs plus 1 encore from the 2 American legs, gets an upgrade to 17 (with intermission!) and 2 encores in the European leg. The resul: stable shows with a solid playing band. Songs of this century in general and Tempest in particular constitute the majority.
Most importantly, for the first time in years, Dylan is really singing again with a rather pure, stable voice. Often centre stage, with or without harp. He is at ease standing (or sitting) at grand piano.
Duke Robillard is, after a short time, replaced on lead guitar in the second leg by good-old Charlie Sexton.
