Brooklyn 2012 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY; November 21, 2012. Fair to good audience recording.

Dylan’s last gig of 2012…

Thanks to goodnitesteve who uploaded and offered the tracks on Mediafire; and to eddiethecat for sharing the show at HungerCity.

Chuck Armstrong wrote at

Less than half an hour after [support act Mark] Knopfler’s performance, Dylan and his band walked out on-stage and immediately broke into 1967’s You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere. As typical with any Dylan performance, there was no chit-chat with the audience, only rocking song after rocking song. The only time Dylan took a break from the music was to introduce his band, which consisted of long-time members like bassist Tony Garnier and drummer George Receli, as well as pedal steel guitarist Donnie Herron, guitarist Stu Kimball and a legend in his own right, guitarist Charlie Sexton.

Dylan’s set included classic tracks like Highway 61 Revisited and Tangled Up in Blue, and he also jammed on two brand new tracks from his latest studio album, Tempest - Early Roman Kings and Soon After Midnight. Playing mainly on a grand piano, Dylan also spent some time behind an electric piano as well as showing off his phenomenal mouth harp skills with his harmonica. From Knopfler joining Dylan and his band onstage for a handful of songs to the encore of the one and only tune, Blowin’ in the Wind, Dylan’s final scheduled performance of 2012 exceeded expectations.

    By darth on Nov 27, 2012

  8. Mick Taylor looks like he ate two of the Stones for breakfast.

  9. this is a dylan thread.

  10. This really is the last tour Bobshow of 2012. There was no show on Nov 22nd.

    By HH on Nov 27, 2012

  11. if there was only one show and it was on the 21st and not the 22nd then blame this site below.

    at two points it specifically states the date is the 22nd. at one point it says the nite before thanksgiving. so i believed based on that line that there was a show the previous nite as well as the one being reviewed here.
    thanksgiving was the 22nd. the day before it was the 21st of course. if this show was the day before.. and then the final show of the tour / year.. and there was only one bklyn show then it is the fault of the people who posted this article. i went by what i read on a normally relatively trustworthy site. granted ive found some doozies on this site. the mathematical errors without any effort to correct them when found by the readers have been incredible.

    lets hope we find a better quality recording of this show. or any show on this tour. i havent seen any fm’s tv’s sbd’s etc of his bobness in forever. not full shows anyway. i may be forgetting something but i cant think of anything in the last 3 yrs. im sure someone will say..what about.. such n such.

    By darth on Nov 28, 2012

  12. blame this site below.

    yeah what ever you do don`t blame darth.
    it was the site that posted this messge on bigo not him.
    it`s all about gettin` yer facts straight bucko…or should i say .

    By wurm on Nov 28, 2012

  13. you should just be glad this is here, wasn`t that long ago bigo was told to pull all the bob .

    First and foremost I want to thank the Big O for continuing to keep us ‘in’ the music in this day and age of website after website being shut down by the ‘powers that be’.

    Second, I want to take a stand against all those f**kheads who claim they can control their bootleg recordings and think they can tell the difference between a ‘lossless’ and ‘lossy’ recording. I’ll put up $100 cash and sit those dudes down in a room and conduct a ‘blind’ test and I guarantee they don’t choose the lossless sounding bootlegs 100% of the time.


    You don’t own it just because your recorded it.

    By Adam Dean on Nov 28, 2012


    You don’t own it just because your recorded it.

    you got my vote. especially about the lossless

    By wurm on Nov 28, 2012

  16. “it is the fault of the people who posted this article”

    No, darth, it’s YOUR fault for posting inaccurate information. Man up or shut up. Preferably the latter. You screwed up in your haste to make everyone think you’re an expert.

    It took me 2 minutes to find the Dylan tour dates on your beloved Wikipedia:

    By Dingus on Nov 28, 2012

  17. sure. after the fact. after the tour is over and days later. sure. the review of the show itself on the site i read it on is still there. the wiki article that u read today wasnt there at the time and isnt where i read the set list and article that had the date etc. youre not making any sense. today is the 28th. i posted the set list from the show from that article just an hour or so after it happened. the article u are talking about on wikipedia which u constantly attack me for using.. incredibly.. didnt have the setlist and the date above it which i used for the information i offered here (on the graham parker page first). the info was on the ultimate classic rock page did. they got the date wrong. there was no reason to doubt the information at that time.
    i did man up. i told everyone where i got the information from. it isnt my information. when will u become a man? u certainly arent one yet. i didnt screw up. it has nothing to do with me being an expert on anything. none of this is about me. all i did was post the information. i am not taking any credit for anything.

    By darth on Nov 28, 2012

  18. ” the article u are talking about on wikipedia which u constantly attack me for using.. incredibly.. didnt have the setlist”

    The set list for the Brooklyn show is there. Don’t U have basic computer skills? Click on the link for “Set Lists”. Duh!

    U posted the information, U made the mistake, then wussed out and blamed it on someone else.

    Are U off your meds? Your behavior is increasingly erratic.

    By Dingus on Nov 28, 2012


    these are the two songs bill wyman joined the stones for at the first show sunday nite. his first time with them in 22 yrs. enjoy.

    on thurs the 2nd of 2 shows at the 02 arena clapton and florence welch will join the stones. florence of florence and the machine will sing gimme shelter with mick as mary j blige did on sunday nite. its not yet known what eric will do with them but im hoping he does more than just one song. beck only did one as we know.
    theyve done little red rooster and brown sugar together previously. they did a sort of boogie mess with jl hooker in 89 in atlantic city. that was an incredible show.
    guess we’ll find out in about 36 hours or just less.
    still kinda odd that no one has yet posted audios of the full show.
    the stones were invited to play at the 12-12-12 benefit at the garden along with bon jovi david grohl bruce roger waters eddie vedder billy joel etc etc. no word on whether they will or not yet. looks like a huge show. cant wait.
    check out this link for more info..

  20. Sock puppets are banned in many online venues. Wikipedia is notoriously plagued with them; its “anyone can edit” philosophy makes it hard to keep them out, while its bureaucratic processes provide incentives for their creation.

    interesting and oddly humorous at the same time. gullible wiki - followers take note.

    By sluggo on Nov 30, 2012

  21. right?

    By ohioisforliars on Nov 30, 2012

  22. “sock puppet” thanks sluggo, i hadn’t heard that one before. very appropriate use lol.

    By barth on Nov 30, 2012
