Bob Dylan Review

The Bob Dylan gig on friday night was a bit of a mixed bag for me. On the positive side of things:
  • The opening band "The Frames" were very good. Genuinely stoked to be playing, great songs and a nice "presence".
  • There were some stunning moments as Bob Dylan's band jammed out solos, I was particularly impressed by Denny Freeman, the lead guitarist. Extended solos that built and built and nailed the vibe in the songs. Pure genius at times.
  • It was cool to see a living legend.

I was disappointed with the sound mix most the way through. There was a low end rumble that bugged me for the first bunch of songs, and at times (particularly the more quiet numbers) it was a good mix, but a lot of the time I thought it was average.

From what I have read the reviews of his shows have being generally positive, especially this chat on national radio. This particular review however shares my sentiments and expressed more eloquently why I walked away from the show feeling flat and disappointed.

Most of the lads I was with really enjoyed the show however. Maybe I am just a grumpy old man : ) And to be honest, maybe I don't respect the living legend enough.
