The Bob Dylan Show

This past weekend we went to see The Bob Dylan Show right here in Lubbock, TX. If you know Andy even just a little bit, you'll know what a Bob Dylan fanatic he is. I (somewhat) jokingly say that he knows more about Bob Dylan than he does about me.

This show was the 3rd time we've seen Dylan live, and this time we took Andy's little sister Anna with us. Being the Bob Dylan fanatic that he is, Andy managed to get us excellent center stage 4th row seats. And being the little sneak that I am, I managed to smuggle my camera into the arena and snag a few shots during the concert.

Contrary to popular opinion in Lubbock, we loved Dylan! The show was opened by a fantastic hillbilly band called The Wiyos, followed by good 'ole Willie Nelson, then followed by a too long (in our opinion) set of John Mellencamp, and ended with a smokin' set of Bob Dylan.

Sadly enough, Lubbockites couldn't stand Dylan and left in droves during his set. I suppose this isn't particularly surprising, honestly...

For any of you who care, Andy provided me with the set list for the evening:
  1. Maggie's Farm
  2. Lay, Lady, Lay
  3. Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again
  4. The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll
  5. Honest With Me
  6. Blind Willie McTell
  7. High Water
  8. Workingman's Blues #2
  9. Highway 61 Revisited
  10. Love Sick
  11. Thunder on the Mountain
  12. Not Fade Away
  13. Like a Rolling Stone
  14. All Along the Watchtower
