Bob Dylan Is Back On Tour For 2016: The Setlist Should be Something Like This


Set List

Things Have Changed

She Belongs To Me

Beyond Here Lies Nothin’

What’ll I Do

Duquesne Whistle

Melancholy Mood

Pay In Blood

I’m a Fool to Want You

Tangled Up In Blue

High Water (For Charley Patton)

Why Try To Change Me Now

Early Roman Kings

The Night We Called it a Day

Spirit On The Water

Scarlet Town

All Or Nothing At All

Long And Wasted Years

Autumn Leaves

Blowin’ In The Wind

Love Sick

That setlist was from Germany last November, one of the last dates before he took a break for six months before returning to the neverending tour in April 2016.

I took a peek because I just bought a ticket for Bob Dylan at Forest Hills Stadium, July 8 th and I wanted to see what it looked like. Me? I’m thrilled with it but I am a huge fan, I love just about every Dylan age and to me his career is one long song. You, on the other hand, might be wondering where “how does it feeeel,,,?” is. Well, give it a chance. The Gream American Songbook standards will sound terrific, and of the new songs, the only one I have a problem with is “Beyond Here Lies Nothing”. Certainly, he will rip it up on “Early Roman Kinds” and “Pay In Blood” and the ending? From “Blowin’ In The Wind” to “Love Sick”? That will do the job. I haven’t seen Dylan in nearly three years, and I can live very happily with this setlist.

    That is the worst setlist where is Highway 61 where is Shelter From The Storm hurricane Lay Lady Lay I mean come on I know you have a new album out but that’s retarded

    I have to agree with the other poster. I’ve seen Dylan in concert and he was just disappointing. Barely a recognizable song–I suppose you’d have to have memorized his last three or four albums–and almost none of his old standards. I’ll see him again during Desert Trip but don’t have much faith that he’ll be doing anything different if this setlist is any indication. Then again The Who, Stones, Neil Young, Roger Waters and Paul McCartney being there should make up for it.

    Dylan is the greatest of them but damned if he really gives a **** what his audience wants, such is genius I guess.

    I am also headed to Desert Trip and I am glad Dylan is starting off the weekend. Dylan hasn’t been Dylan for a long time. It will be great to see him and realize his place in rock but his live work is a shadow of his past. The rest of the acts all put on tremendous live shows and this weekend should be epic.
