      Emory University - Atlanta, US on 05 Feb 1964

      It was a great experience. Some friends and I drove to Atlanta from Auburn University. The songs were mainly from the Freewheeling album. I was surprised at how much feeling he could convey with his voice using guitar chords that everyone knew. After the performance, he stayed to talk with members of the audience. I believe his brother was with him and there was a striking resemblance . Dylan said that his next stop would be New Orleans. Another thing was that he had a spoon capo which he said that he made when he had no money.
      I don`t think he actually used it to play though. Maybe it was a warmup routine. I would rate it a 10.

      Waikiki Shell - Honolulu, US on 01 Aug 1964

      I had finished my Junior year in high school in 1964 when I attended the Aug 1, 1964 Bob Dylan concert at the Waikiki Shell. My girlfriend and I had the cheapest tickets, cs. $2.75 each, and we're sitting in the grass a light rain started falling and there weren't many people at the concert, so Bob Dylan told us all to come down closer. Thus, we got to sit in the spprox 2nd row right in front of Dylan he had on a buckskin jacket and his harmonica on a stand around his neck. It was a wonderful concert which I have never forgotten. I bought all his albums from those years and many years later bought the CDs. My son texted me from the East Coast early this morning to tell me the great news about Dylan receiving the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. I was "stoked" as we would have said in 1964 Honolulu. It is richly deserved! Way to go, Bobby!

      Memorial Auditorium - Worcester, US on 16 Oct 1965

      I was at this concert ..... The first set was all acoustic and then after intermission, Dylan came back with THE BAND ... It was amazing !! More than half the audience left because they were die-hard folkies and thought that he had sold out for going electric. Man they MISSED OUT !!!

      Auditorium - Minneapolis, US on 05 Nov 1965

      Probably the best concert I've ever been to. It was like two concerts in one. The first part Dylan played solo for better than an hour. No introduction or nothing said between songs. He left the stage, and some of the audience left too. I don't know if they thought it was over, or were protesting his move to electric. He returned shortly with his band and rocked on for again over an hour. Encore was Positively Fourth Street followed by Like A Rolling Stone. He sounded great that night, and I knew then (I was only 17) that he was truly a musical force .

      F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts - Wilkes-barre, US on 15 Nov 1991

      This was my first Dylan concert and I was probably too young, 15, to really appreciate what he was doing at the time. Dylan was in a hurry in the early 90's and true to from he played most songs differently than how the songs appeared on the his albums. And he played them fast. Every once in while I would catch a lyric and know what song it was. Again, I was too young to understand it and I left a little confused as to what I just saw. At 15 I just knew that it was cool even if I didn't get it. I'd like to listen to the set with a new set of ears now that it has been 25 years.

      Theater Carré - Amsterdam, Netherlands on 07 Nov 2015

      Dylan was at his best! His voice was wonderful, so clear, and the band was great. The setlist was a perfect mix of Shadows, Tempest and other new albums, with a few old songs. Dylan seemed to be amused and he did this funny walks on stage, made me laugh.

      Royce Hall, UCLA - Los Angeles, US on 06 Dec 1964

      I attended this concert with my brother John and roommate Don . Bob did his acoustical "Freewheeling" stuff in the first half and brought electrical backup in the second half. About 40% of the audience bailed in disgust at that point, and we moved up from the back seats to row 2.
      My brother doesn't remember this the seminal moment, and thinks I am making this up. It says on the internet that Dylan did not go electric for another 6 months ,and ,as everyone knows, if it is on the internet ,it must be true.
      If anyone who was there reads this, or can ask Bob to back me up, please drop me an email .It was an amazing concert. Bob Dylan really Rocked for maybe the first time publicly !

      Center Stožice - Ljubljana, Slovenia on 25 Jun 2015

      I was half-expecting the electric piano and Jesus poses, but what I got was a stellar performance. He didn't play too many of his hits, but it's Dylan, and he can do whatever he wants; a lot of the tracks had this standards-type feel to them, but that was fine by me, the performances were good and the artist himself managed quite well. All in all, it was Dylan, so I would probably still be in awe even if the concert was bad, but it turned out to be great.

      Nordmole / Zollhafen - Mainz, Germany on 20 Jun 2015

      The Mainz concert was nice but it didn't have many highlights. I understand Bob doesn't want to replay all the old songs all of the time, but a few more of those would really have been nice, especially in the encore!

      Montgomery Performing Arts Centre - Montgomery, US on 15 Apr 2015

      I had a nice time seeing Bob in Montogomery. His voice was wonderfully clear in the small auditorium, and the crowd respectful. DuQuesne Whistle and Pay in Blood were nice to hear without the Satchmo growl. Finishing with Long and Wasted Years makes one wonder what he is saying to us. The uncertainty of Blowing in the Wind and the prayerfulness of Stay With Me answer that, i guess. He's saying "Good Luck!"

      If you're ever in Montgomery, be sure to visit Hank Williams' resting place overlooking the Alabama River valley.

      Went to see BD from Memphis and the concert was ok. When we went to the tour buses area the security or police were rude and power hungry. How do huge dylan fans turn into a criminal is beyond me. Will never come back to that place it was like the twilight zone.

      Paramount Theatre - Seattle, US on 18 Oct 2014

      His voice and phrasing only get better with time. Without his guitar, he seemed livelier than before. It was so funny; those of us who love him were eating it up when he would do little dance moves or even make some gestures. We would cheer as if to say, 'ooh, he's moving - that's so great!' I think it made us feel a stronger connection, like this genius could do something off the cuff, like us mortals.

      Stadthalle Rostock - Rostock, Germany on 07 Jul 2014

      Who would have expected this? Bob Dylan and Band showed an extraordinary performance. In best mood, with a great stage show, an unusually clear voice of the leadsinger and enthusiastically played songversions (I'd espescially mention "Forgetful Heart"), the crowd was deeply impressed. It was everbody's fortune and surprise, that Dylan played his harmonica quite often. The set list (http://www.bobdylan.com/us/tour/2014-07-07-stadthalle) was, like mostly, very well coordinated. The condition of Bob Himself seemed very fan-friendly. The interior audience looked unbelievingly at themselves... what might be reason? Unexpected blessing, drugs? However!
      During the concert, Dylan celebrated himself - rightly. The one, who wasn't contently, could really not be helped! I take my hat off for that brilliant achievement! Rostock's skulls were blown off! What the fuck!

      Stadthalle Zwickau - Zwickau, Germany on 03 Jul 2014

      Forbidden to bring bigger cameras into the venue, but not forbidden to bring mobile phones in. It was very disturbing with the light of the mobile phones. I could not understand this because I always make pictures without flash. Not only the problem in Zwickau. All other things were good organized. Would be helpfull to have more trams at the end of such a concert!
