Tokyo 2014 - Second Night [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Zepp DiverCity, Tokyo, Japan; April 1, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Andrew Kershaw reviewing the March 31, 2014 gig at

Just 123 days after tumultuous applause engulfed the waning strains of “Blowin’ In The Wind” to bring Bob Dylan’s last concert to an end at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Nov. 28, a similar cacophony awaited him at Tokyo’s Zepp DiverCity on Monday at the start of his 17-show “cherry blossom” tour of Japan. To rapturous acclaim… the self-styled “song and dance man” appeared on stage for the first time in four years in Japan and launched into his foreboding, Oscar-winning “Things Have Changed” from 2000…

Whether it’s blues (“Blind Willie McTell”), ballads (“Forgetful Heart”) or anthems (“Tangled Up In Blue”), and whether Dylan’s bent over his grand piano seeming to punch at the keys with his fingers, stood singing/soaring/growling center-stage or coaxing music like no other from a harp, it’s obvious this is an artist still forever pushing the envelope, with one rendition of a song only rarely the same as any other.

One thing, though, did remain the same: The tumultuous applause, and rapturous adulation, that engulfed the waning strains of “Blowin’ In The Wind” as this installment of Bob Dylan’s so-called Never Ending Tour came to a close - just about 2,562 concerts after it started in June 1988.

Thanks to catpochi who recorded and shared the show at Dime.

  2. “Round and round it goes; where it stops nobody knows.”

    or more saliently perhaps

    “The music goes ’round and around
    And it comes out here”

    Thanks Big O!
    Keep on Keeping On . . . . . .

  6. Great sound on this, thanks for the share BigO.

    Shame about Rubin Carter, his story inspired probably the last great protest song from Dylan.
