Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 2002

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message message_box_color=”mulled_wine” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-quote-left”]My friend Renée always likes to rush the stage, and find a place in the front row, literally at Bob’s feet … she was making a bee-line for her favourite spot, she stopped dead. What the fuck? There, in the middle of the stage, where Bob ought to be, was an electric keyboard.

    1. I copied the list of concerts from my private notes.. and forgot to remove that part.
      Anyway, it just means that the next concert (Seattle, Washington – 4 October 2002) was the first where he started to use piano/keyboard.. a lot.
      Ref. the Stephen Scobie quote.
