Also, *Down In the Flood* was the opener. The show lasted for two hours. Does anyone have the entire setlists so far? My information is on good authority, but I welcome other details or rebuttal. Are there any posters from the Czech Republic out there? Christine Consolvo

It's confirmed that he played guitar on only two songs or so. When he first came out, he walked right past his guitar to the microphone and started singing! At some point he did apologize about cancelling due to illness the 1st night and was said to be holding his stomach a few times. Word has it it was the flu. Also, since he was without guitar, he had some slightly awkward (nonetheless adorable) flailings of his arms as he wasn't used to having them free. Maybe more later. Christine Consolvo

It was said to be *stunning*. (my apologies) He said something to the effect that "Prague is a nice place to get over the flu". His shirt was of royal purple satin. He was said to have coughed a bit and to seat himself to rest between some songs. He picked up his guitar during *River Flow* and played maybe 15 chords then put it down again. Perhaps he was too ill to be bothered with it? During *Me Babe* a slightly drunken woman jumped onstage, picked up his guitar and started to play. When security started to close in he waved them off and said it was all right. Then when he came to the lyric "and anyway I'm not alone" he leaned back and looked at her. Another woman hopped the stage when the show was almost over and laid a kiss on him. In conclusion (and it won't be) he was in *very* good mood and voice. Christine

The very large auditorium was full, the audience were becoming impatient by the time Dylan came on at 20.15. Bob seemed in a good mood despite explaining that he was recovering from 'flu. Throughout the show he retired to the rear of the stage between numbers and sat bent double seeming to gather his strength but then launched into each new number with even more feeling. During the encore a young woman got on stage and sat cradling Bob's guitar - when a security man went to remove her Bob said 'no, she can play it' and the girl remained to the end. A real experience, and a pleasure for this novice to meet such erudite posters as Heike,Ray, etc - some of whom are staying for the extra show on 13th - look forward to reports! Mike C
