It was a warm venue for Bob last night at the Hearnes Center,
built in 1972 and named for Missouri's 46th governor and 1952
graduate of the University of Missouri, Warren E. Hearnes.

The show opened at 7:35 with half of the basketball arena
curtained off.  It was a near sellout from my estimation.  Once
again, age demographics varied greatly.  I was in sixth row
center.  The most interesting person I saw was doing some yoga
moves during Knockin' On Heaven's Door (mama, take this leotard
off of won't stretch with me anymore).

Very brief song reviews: Roving Gambler - nicely done, a great
opener IMO

Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob was not in the zone just yet but a nice

Desolation Row - excellent phrasing and Bob was at his best of
the night

Everything Is Broken - great surprise and rocked with a
wonderful tilt-boogie style...the boys nailed it BIG time (with
a Peter Gunn style bass rhythm).  I don't recall hearing the
line "Broken words never meant to be spoken".

Make You Feel My Love - very effective live version...perfect
for Bob's voice right now.

Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - good fun
with more or different verses than I have heard in the past
couple of years

Masters Of War - I am tired of this song so I won't say anything

Girl Of The North Country - heartfelt rendition with wonderful

Tangled Up In Blue - great rockin' ending with Bob blowing hard
on the harp...crowd enjoyed thoroughly

Highlands - biggest surprise of the night (needless to say)...I
was grinning for the 10 version.  Nice quick phrasing from Bob. 
Many around me were not aware of the uniqueness of the moment.

The Wicked Messenger - time to cook and the water was on hard
boil starting with this and continuing on with...

Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat - Bob was not as playful tonight
onstage but he was nailing the sharp witty lines

(encore) Things Have Changed - excellent live version with Bob
breaking out of the recorded version in the later third to
stretch some syllables

Like A Rolling Stone - gotta love it...always a crowd pleaser

If Dogs Run Free - it's nice to hear something different during
the evening and this does the trick....jazzy, club feel to it

All Along The Watchtower - Charlie is a treat to watch on long are his fingers?  I know he could palm a
basketball and go to the hole hard.  He had to be a high school
BBall player

Knockin' On Heaven's Door - nice to hear live with Charlie and
Larry on backing vocals and harmonies.  Charlie's subtle
electric was sooo sweet.

Highway 61 Revisited - Charlie rocks on again.  Larry seemed to
enjoy this concert so much.  Is it because the master is not
watching his every move anymore.  He was full of smiles as he
watched Charlie follow Bob's invisible batton.

Blowin' In The Wind - nice ending to a very good show.  David
and Tony are outstanding together.

The show concluded at 9:45 without a second encore as the
previous four shows have experienced.  The only other thing I
could ask for is to have Bob in a more outgoing mood for tonight
in Cape!! But don't get me wrong....I'm not complaining!!

He is in Missouri and we will not let him be!!
