Bob Dylan & band @ United Palace Theatre (on night 1) (wflines)
Dylan

"...this was the first show I've seen since guitarist Charlie Sexton rejoined the band. The setlist was phenomonal: they opened [night three] with a hard rocking, swagger heavy "Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking" (from Slow Train Coming), followed by a loose "The Man In Me" (from New Morning, and also used in the opening credits of The Big Lebowski). The fans loved the semi-obscure picks. Then he played my favorite song from my favorite album of 2009: "Beyond Here Lies Nothing" from Together Through Life. He also played "Jolene" and "My Wife's Home Town" from that album, all of which were great. Dylan is such a '60s icon, and of course he has nearly five decades of material to draw from, I'm glad he still plays so much recent music, which shows his continued relevance: the album he drew from the most was 2006's Modern Times: "Thunder On The Mountain," "When The Deal Goes Down," "Workingman's Blues #2" and "Ain't Talkin'." He played my favorite song from 2001's "Love & Theft," "High Water (For Charlie Patton.)" And I was glad he hit one of my favorites, "Cold Irons Bound," from 1997's Time Out Of Mind. Over 50% of the show was from the past 12 years, which I think is awesome. As you know, I consider Bob to be one of the best artists of the '00s." [No Expiration]

Bob Dylan played his third show in a row at United Palace Theatre in NYC on Thursday night (11/19). It was also the last show of his current tour. The setlist varied night to night. You can see Tuesday's HERE, Wednesday's HERE, and Thursday's, along with a widget for his new Christmas album and a video from the first night, below...
