Bob Freakin' Dylan is Coming to the
Toyota Freakin' Music Factory in Freakin' October


Bob Freakin' Dylan
by Danny Gallagher



If someone tells you that Bob Dylan is coming to town and you're one of those young whippersnappers who responds with "Who?" then the person who informed you can't be held responsible for their actions. It's the law. Look it up.

So, if you're not familiar, don't worry. We won't judge you. In fact, we'll help you steer clear of any potential for unwanted assault incidents.

For starters, Dylan and his band announced they are coming to Dallas on Oct. 10 for a sure-to-sell-out-quick show at The Pavilion at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, according to his official website. The show is part of a multi-city U.S. tour following his recent tour across Australia and New Zealand.

If you're among the uninitiated and aren't sure if you should go just because you're worried about any aforementioned knowledge assaults, here's a primer.

Bob Dylan (birthdate: May 24, 1941, birthplace: Duluth, Minn., birth name: Bob Freakin' Dylan) is the most influential musician of his and our time. That's right. Pretty much every song you hold dear and listen to while you work out can be traced back to his genius in some way, except for "Baby Got Back," any Logan Paul tune and that annoying as hell "Barbie Girl" song.

He didn't just change the style and substance of music during his rise to his iconic status in the 1960s. He also gave it form and function and helped pave a new bridge for popular music from tunes that were marketed to teenagers with raging hormones over to songs that served as global declarations for peace, justice and man's dwindling sense of humanity.

Dylan burst onto the national music scene in 1961 through New York's Greenwich Village club scene, where he met record producer John Hammond. Within a few years, Dylan's unique folk and rock sound produced several albums that changed the course and voice of popular music for years to come, such as albums like Bringing It All Back, Highway 61 Revisited, Blonde on Blonde and Blood on the Tracks and songs like The Times They Are A Changin', Like a Rolling Stone and Subterranean Homesick Blues, the latter of which also served as one of Dylan's most iconic music videos long before the term existed or MTV could even start running the concept of music videos into the earth.

Dylan's work has earned him more than just the usual accolades of a musical icon, like his 10 Grammy awards, five Rock and Roll Hall of Fame song honors and a Best Song Academy Award. He's also been honored with a Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2012 and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016 "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition," according to the Nobel Prize official website.

Author Sean Wilentz's Bob Dylan in America, a book that explores the themes Dylan presents and the influences he's made on the American landscape with his music, puts Dylan on the same literary level as American literary greats like Walt Whitman, Herman Melville and Edgar Allan Poe who he writes can see "the symbolic in the everyday and then [tell] stories about it. Some of those stories can be taken to be, literally, about America, but they are all constructed in America, out of all of its bafflements and mysticism, hopes and hurts."

Long drive from Midland!
Wait. Maybe could do it in 5 hrs though.
Everything seems bigger in Texas.

Can always stop in Shamrock and paint a picture to break up the drive.

Small, yet picture worthy place.

Been there myself several years back. ... Remember taking some dirt paved roads which signs claimed that lead to the highway, but just stopped right near it. ... Pulled the typical impatient American male move of going off road over a big bump back onto the highway in place of turning around.
Guess oddly placed low populated small towns surrounded by nothing but desert give me the Willy's. .... Too many spooky movies about such things.

No wonder why he used a photo. ;)

Hope all going have a good show and the rest of us get to see a setlist change pop up hERe.

Shamrock might be a bit out of the way, but maybe.

Just saw Bob Dylan in concert. This is the most exciting time I’ve had in the presence of a Nobel laureate since Nelson Mandela caught me playing drunk strip Twister with his daughter.
8:19 PM - 10 Oct 2018

Much better photo here as well:

Presumably so little activity means no setlist changes?

That would be enticing!
Probably a new arrangement.

Hopefully that was part of the setlist and not that patron's experience during the show!

Replaced Train with Soon after Midnight? Meh. Seems like a travesty on paper. Cry a While is preferable to the overplayed High Water, however.

I guess it’s not a static setlist after all, eh? Very sorry to see Train To Cry be replaced by Soon After Midnight after such a short run, although the latter song isn’t bad. Maybe Bob will still bring it back to pair it with Cry A While for the encore. That would leave ‘em scratching their heads!

Sympathies out to the non-Sooners.
First Scarlet, then Soon.
Here comes Spirit.

It Takes a Train to Cry Awhile.

New arrangements of same old songs are tantalizing.

YES! Imagine the "Boogie Woogie version" of Silvio.

Very nice to see Cry A While pop up. Looking forward to hearing it.
Just yesterday was listening to that one on the Paris 4/29/02 boot and really enjoyed it. ... I'm picturing the 2018 version being a lot more tamed then that one. .. Still, it's something new.

.... Love Sick in a completely different slot as well. ... Looked stange there to me at first glance. .... At least mostly, it's been played towards the end of the show.

Looks like some tinkering going on. Hopefully more changes in the near future
