Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead did a collaborative tour together in 1987, which resulted in the 1989 live album Dylan & the Dead, and Dylan has performed their music in concert nearly 200 times since then -- sometimes joined by Dead members -- but he hadn't done so since 2007. That changed at Oakland's Fox Theater on Saturday (6/11) when Dylan broke out "Friend of the Devil" for the first time since performing it at Red Rocks 15 years earlier, and which Rolling Stone points out was also the first time he changed his setlist at all for the past 37 concerts. Dylan prohibits video recording at shows, but one attendee captured audio of the cover and posted it online. It's pretty lo-fi, but the performance sounds great. Check it out below.
