Bob Dylan @ United Palace Theater - Nov 18, 2009 (hightea)
Bob Dylan

Huffington Post: A lot of the acts from your generation seem to be trading on nostalgia. They play the same songs the same way for the last 30 years. Why haven't you ever done that?

Bob Dylan: I couldn't if I tried. Those guys you are talking about all had conspicuous hits. They started out anti-establishment and now they are in charge of the world. Celebratory songs. Music for the grand dinner party. Mainstream stuff that played into the culture on a pervasive level. My stuff is different from those guys. It's more desperate. Daltrey, Townshend, McCartney, the Beach Boys, Elton, Billy Joel. They made perfect records, so they have to play them perfectly ... exactly the way people remember them. My records were never perfect. So there is no point in trying to duplicate them. Anyway, I'm no mainstream artist.

Bob Dylan and his band played for the second night in a row at United Palace Theater on Wednesday (11/18). Those that went both nights were rewarded with a different setlist at each show (until the end anyway). Night one setlist HERE. Night three tickets HERE. Night two's setlist below...

I have to say that reading about the first two nights makes me really want to go night three.

I went night #1. Bob played guitar on the 2nd song and that was it. The rest of the time was on the keys with maybe 2 or 3 songs where he just sang without an instrument as well.

LOVE THIS QUOTE:
"Anyway, I'm no mainstream artist."

Yes, Bob stays on the Keys these days mostly.
Charlie Sexton has taken over Guitar, which is a good think I think, Bob is great on the ivories.

'forgetful heart' was astounding.

What time did Dion start? And then what time did Dylan go on?

skipped Dirty Projectors for Dylan? Is it really even a debate who you should see or not? I doubt you will be telling your kids 10-15 years from now that you saw Dirty Projectors.

if dylan comes to brooklyn, we will steal his tour bus and equipment trailer.

I wish he played more older stuff... I don't know, like any of his new stuff. But I'm about to leave for tonight's show. Orchestra seats, baby.

He was great last night. He definitely had an energy that I wasn't sure he was going to have.

Why are there no a lot more this sort of blogs? Your content are wonderful and arrive in themes, which can not be observed everywhere. Please continue writing this sort of great stuff, it’s actually effective. The net is complete of outstanding waste, as 1 is happy in case you uncover anything else. Why are certainly not there far more? Will not leave me hanging!
