Bob Dylan returning to Springfield with sold-out show at Symphony Hall
Bob Dylan will perform at Springfield Symphony Hall on Saturday night
by KARA L. NOBLE – Nov 12

More than 50 years into his career, Bob Dylan can still sell out a concert in days.

The 77-year-old singer-songwriter's upcoming performance at Springfield Symphony Hall on Sunday night sold out weeks ago.

Those fast ticket sales proved that concert promoter DSP Shows was correct when it decided that Springfield audiences would appreciate the opportunity to hear Dylan perform close to home after a 20-year hiatus. The singer-songwriter last performed in Symphony Hall on Feb. 2, 1998.

Dylan has a long history of defying expectations as an artist and performer. He caught many off guard by releasing three albums, Shadows in the Night (2015), Fallen Angels (2016), and Triplicate (2017) that explore the repertoire of the Great American Songbook. They feature tunes, such as "Autumn Leaves, "Some Enchanted Evening," and "Stardust," that are associated more with Perry Como and Frank Sinatra than Bob Dylan.

The influence of swing and big-band standards can be heard in some of Dylan's newer compositions such as "Duquesne Whistle," a tune that invokes the bounce and gravelly voice of Louis Armstrong. Stylistic traces of the American Songbook have colored even Dylan's most iconic tunes during recent performances.

Music alone can't fulfill Dylan's artistic needs. In 2018, he delved into distillery, partnering with Chicago-based company Spirits Investment Partnership to create Heaven's Door, a collection of handcraft whiskeys. The whiskey bottles are decorated with a design of iron doors Dylan fashioned at his metalworking shop, Black Buffalo Ironworks.

But it is live performance, with its many opportunities to surprise and engage the audience, that seems to be his most irresistible creative outlet.

During the 2018 Never Ending Tour, Dylan has shaken up his set lists, slipping in tunes he has not performed on stage for years. He plays only piano and harmonica on this tour, leaving the guitar playing to Stu Kimball and Charlie Sexton. Long-time bandmates Donnie Herron (fiddle, steel guitar, mandolin, banjo), Tony Garnier (bass), and George Receli (drums) round out the tour band.

The audience at Symphony Hall will undoubtedly hear Dylan will deliver fresh interpretations some of his best-known music.

Recent concerts have included such classics as "Things Have Changed," "Like A Rolling Stone," "Tangled Up In Blue," "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," and "Girl From The North Country." Listeners are equally likely to hear unexpected improvisations in every genre from folk to country to rock.

Dylan's sold-out concert is one of the few shows remaining on Symphony Hall's fall calendar

On Sept. 10, Springfield Performing Arts Development Corp. announced that it would no longer manage Symphony Hall or CityStage after Dec. 31, 2018.

Spring bookings at both venues are on hold while city officials await proposals from bidders seeking to take over management of the two city venues. The deadline for proposals is Nov. 26 at 2 p.m.

EDIT: Looks like Kara didn’t get the word on Stu. Or knows something we don’t, ha ha.

Lingering in that downtrodden burg probably not a high priority....

Nah....15 songs was the standard back in early 1998. The show was rescheduled from Jan 26 when Bob got ill.

I was at that one and I'll be at this one tomorrow....

^ I was at that one as well. ... Went with a couple friends. We were traveling from Cape Cod MA area. ..

First trip guy who was driving hadn't had his license very long. Think he ran 3 or 4 red lights in total around Springfield alone while adjusting to his surroundings & getting yelled street names being read from printed directions. ... Was almost fitting for our group that it got cancelled via guy with a megaphone from top of the steps to entrance.
... We actually broke down after that in parking lot of a diner for like 4 hours & got home to roommate sitting on the couch in winter clothing telling us the heat broke & someone on the lease needed to call the landlord.

Don't remember much from driving up the next week, so musta went smooth. ... Do remember it was a great performance and sounded SO much better than the one I saw not long before it at Fleet Center Boston where he split the billing with Van Morrison.

Can still actually picture, It Ain't Me Babe, from my balcony view point .. Bright ... Lights on for last song(?)... Think there's a huge chandelier on the ceiling. .. Anyways, more memory than I can seem to pull from a lot of long past shows of yesteryear, so must have been a real good one.

....

Hope it's even better for all those in attendance tonight!

Have great times & safe travels!


* Attention any youngster's, new drivers or stoner types - Use that gps with volume up! Lots of light stops ... & plenty of post show diner's upon the outskirts
.... if so inclined of course. :)

(AAA Plus, is a great, sensible & handy gift to ask the 'rents for during the holidays ;) [just saying] )

^ ......

For anyone interested, just stumbled across reviews of that Springfield show from 20 years plus ago while searching for a recording that doesn't need to be downloaded. ... No luck on that, but some good stuff nevertheless...

https://expectingrain.com/dok/set/98/02/980202a.html

... Truthfully, I've only read the first review so far written by a gentleman named, Seth. .. Well written & worth the time. ... The beginning part most of all will be interesting to even those who weren't in attendance that concert.


* LoL, noticed the first review on that I link I just wrote about was actually copied & pasted from an article written couple days after the show in the Berkshire Eagle.

There's a brand new casino about a block from the venue...too cheap to gamble, but headed over now for the pre-game. A few inches of snow on the ground here and could be snowing lightly when we get out.

This venue is really cool. Very laid back.

Reading those reviews of the 98 Springfield show brought back great memories, as Sadiejane also instructed me about proper stage rush techniques back when that was a thing. Is she still part of the online community? She was a super huge help w tickets, etc. back in the day.

The only Dylan show I saw during a snowstorm was in Pocatello, March 19 of 2000, in what had been last used as a rodeo arena, and Bob's first ever live performance in that remote state. A spooky, desolate and cold Sunday night in what felt like the middle of nowhere. No craft beer to be had. I remember watching Larry Campbell pace the large area around the stage in a long black coat as Asleep at the Wheel played their opening set. The sound inside Holt Arena was tremendous. Still not sure how I made it back to Idaho Falls that night...

Snowing now! I have to gather my thoughts,but I think my favourite was Cry Awhile. Good crowd, minimal security, Bob was hatless.

... Nice to see Blowin' last .... Seems like a better fit played after Watchtower .... or Long & Wasted (next/if performed again this tour).

Hope all had fun & managed to keep from swinging upon that chandelier!

LoL, read those stage rush techniques and stories last night as well. .... Interesting & fun getting a glimpse into that time and time area.

Hope last night was speacial & end up creating a review for others to catch a glimpse of down the line.

Does anyone have a ticket stub from this show they'd be willing to sell me? They confiscated the stubs in exchange for "free" parking in the garage which was....weird.
