Sad to say, but you could not pay me to go and see Dylan again... He's so far past useful, it's painful. 

I don't entirely agree. His band is still great, and it can be fun to see his current arrangements of songs you know well in their original forms. I've seen him four times, I think, and while I'm not chomping at the bit to see him again, I wouldn't turn down the opportunity.

The Toronto show a few years back with Wilco & My Morning Jacket was quite good.

Better than past Dylan shows that I have attended.

Jul 15, 2013

Toronto, ON

Molson Canadian Amphitheatre

Colin Linden on guitar. With Jeff Tweedy and Jim James on "Twelve Gates to the City" and "Blowin' in the Wind"

2013 was fun in a "let's try to guess what song he's playing" kind of way ;)  Seriously though I feel like it's always a privilege to see Dylan, but I'm probably going to skip this one. Although I haven't been to this Artpark place yet and would like to check it out sometime.

I rather enjoyed his set at Rothbury back in 2009 I believe it was. Artpark would be a great venue but wondering if it will be the outdoor venue or amphitheater?  If the latter could be horrible especially if on the grass

Aren't most people at a Dylan show on "the grass"?

Bob's shows are a crap shoot now-a-days unfortunately. Thankfully I've seen my fair share.

I haven't seen him in about 5 years or more. The last time was at Rogers Centre ACC. If he played anywhere else when he visits Toronto I'd likely consider grabbing tickets, but if its ACC I'd pass without a second thought.(I won't go there for any band though).

I still download most shows of his tours though (often entire tours). In recent years it seems smaller venues are a lot more enjoyable or perhaps forgiving, though that's not an exact science. Ravages of age I suppose. That said, I still think the man writes great songs, and I really enjoy his studio releases. I'm positive when he calls it quits (or passes) I'll regret not going to that "last show".

I hear you there. Only artist I've seen more then the Grateful Dead. 

I think the last time I didn't recognize a song was in Vancouver 98 when he played at The Rage, a night before he played with Van and Joni at GM place. Halfway through first set he played "Stone Walls & Steel Bars" and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what song it was. I ended up asking someone next to me - to be honest, I had heard the song before (though never from Bob) but it had never stuck with me. It has since though.


edit to add:

It was also the first time I saw him play Gordon Lightfoot's "I'm not supposed to care" .

That show ranks as one of the best I ever saw of Dylan. Smallest venue I've ever seen him in that's for sure.

In for the ArtPark - Lewiston, NY show.

Just picked up 4 seated tickets in the pavilion.  

My 14 year old nephew Riley is a young hippie from Nelson, BC that loves Dylan.

He's kickin' off his summer right with a visit to see his uncle in TO, and a few concerts while he's there :D
