For my friends birthday I got her 2 tickets to go see Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp and my favorite, Willie Nelson. It's amazing to see these three musical geniuses in a lifetime, let alone at one place on one day, and it wasn't even part of one of the music festivals in Austin. It was at the Dell Diamond baseball park....not your typical concert venue...but also not your typical concert. The concert lasted about 4 or 5 hours, but no one batted an eye with all the great music that was playing! I heard songs that I knew every word...songs that I couldn't understand any of the words (thank you Bob)...and songs that I knew but didn't know that one of these epic artists wrote them. It was a great night of reliving where you were when you first heard that song and also making new ones with friends. If these three guys come into town again....together or seperately...I would definitely take the time to see all these legends again.
I have seen Bob Dylan in concert more than anyone else (6 times). The thing that I love the most about Bob Dylan is that he keeps things interesting.
Most concerts the songs song exactly like the album (which I still enjoy), but since Dylan has such a large library of songs and one that are older than I am. So he changes the old songs sounds and sometimes lyrics from the album versions. So you get something more than just listening to his albums.
Dylan has gotten older over the years and you can tell he has lived hard. Some of the concerts I have seen have been better than other. I think the key is to try and see him on the first leg of a tour instead of the last leg. At the end of a tour you can tell the toll the tour has taken.
But I say if you have a chance see him no matter what you should experience at least once.
