August 12: Watch Bob Dylan (with Nils Lofgren) Performing “Things Have Changed” – NYC 2003

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne

Hammerstein Ballroom
New York City, New York
12 August 2003

  • Bob Dylan (vocal & piano)
  • Nils Lofgren (guitar)
  • Freddie Koella (guitar)
  • Larry Campbell (guitar, mandolin, pedal steel guitar & electric slide guitar)
  • Tony Garnier (bass)
  • George Recile (drums & percussion)


“Things Have Changed” started and this guitar player tore into it in such a way that the song was lifted energy-wise 100 percent. At the end of the song there were shouts of Nils and I managed to get a better view and sure enough it was Nils Lofgren ….. This was a show where the set list didn’t matter, the songs didn’t matter. It was all about the performance. Lofgren was beyond phenomenal, but his presence reminded the band what it was all about and most important of all he inspired Dylan to give what was quite possibly his best performance this year.
