Jakob Dylan's playing on Later... With Jools Holland Live right now. I've never heard him sing before now, and to me he sounds oddly like Bruce Springsteen.

Dates announced for Sheffield, London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow and Dublin, in April and May next year. Get 'em while they're hot.
 
Just got a pair for the seventh row in Sheffield, despite the usual card problems on Ticketmaster.

I think I love you Rick. I just bought me and a Friend two tickets to go see him in Birmingham. Block A.. Row V. Pretty damn decent tickets! And less than 50 each even after the ridiculous booking fees and postage fees. I am now very very very excited... poor... but excited. Now It's Just Bowie left to tour and I am done!

I was chatting with my Auntie about concerts the other day. I told her I've seen Tom Waits, Dylan, Nick Cave, Suede and Richard Thompson, so the only thing left to do is see them again!  That's until they reanimate Sandy Denny and Kathleen Ferrier, anyway... I'm sharing your money woes, Moon, but it'll be worth it come April.

Ha, yeah, not as good as yours mind, but damn good considering that they had been on sale for a couple of hours before I bought them. I can only assume it's down to lack of advertising and the fact that he is on a neverending tour.

I am so very excited now, I could only get through to one of my friends about the tickets, but in all fairness I think she is the only one who is actually a big enough fan to fork over 50 to go. It's always a pleasure giving someone good news over the phone

What was his set like when you saw him last time Rick? I've heard that he's stopped playing guitar now which is a shame, but that his band is good... have I heard right? What sort of set does he play, mix of old and new? mainly new? Either way I am sure it will be great... as long as he doesn't just play saved and shot of love I am sure I will enjoy it a lot

He was playing guitar the last time I saw him, but that was a year-and-a-half ago now.
 
Set-lists are generally a joy - 15 to 20 songs, a great mix of old and new, including My Back Pages and Nettie Moore last time out, which were the highlights for me. (The only - very minor - negative is that he can play a few too many soundalike blues jams). I'm not sure about his band, it's not something that really seems to register with me, unless they're rubbish.
 
There are a few tracks he always seems to play - Maggie's Farm as an opener, Like a Rolling Stone and All Along the Watchtower as an encore, and Masters of War, Memphis Blues and Summer Days sandwiched somewhere in between. The rest are surprises.

The first time I saw him (May 2002 in Manchester), he played Blind Willie McTell, Senor, One Too Many Mornings and Visions of Johanna.
 
Second time (November 2005 in Manchester),  A Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall, Man in the Long Black Coat and Girl of the North Country.
 
Last time (April 2007 in Sheffield), Watching the River Flow, My Back Pages and It's Alright Ma.
 
The Sheffield gig was easily the best. He barely glances at/speaks to the audience, but it was an energetic, attractive set and he seemed "into it", as I believe people say.

Actually, he played Most Likely You Go Your Way as an opener in Sheffield, and a quick look at recent set-lists suggest he may be resting Maggie's Farm - so it's all to play for there.

60. Not as bad as I thought then, but it's still quite bit of cash...

In my mind it works out as a bargain, as it works out as less money than I paid for his last album... I'm justifying spending 50 on it comparing it to other ticket prices... Radiohead tickets were around 40/45, Stevie Wonder was 65 plus booking fee, Tom Waits was about 100ish... so in all this works out as good value for money in my eyes. Even if it does make me very grateful for my overdraft.

100? Concert tickets are getting incredibly expensive.

That was Tom Waits though.. which I again justified with Madonna charging 150 for the standing tickets to one of her shows... (this is not one I went to mind you.. just one I heard about) And I thought to myself... Tom Waits is so much better than madonna... it's worth it. Plus it was kinda once in a lifetime perhaps kinda thing.. As this could be. Bob is getting on a bit, I wanna try and see him as many times as possible before he stops touring for good.

I just found out that tickets are 70...fucking inflation... But yeah, I really want to see him once before he stops touring, which will be sooner rather than later I fear (he's going to turn 68 during the European tour).

It's also worth remembering that the 50 I am talking about is after the horrendously high booking fees that the NIA charge, plus the postage, which is again quite high. Tickets were either 37 or 42 depending on where you sat... which is a pretty decent price. Some bands with a couple of albums out there charge that much for their arena gigs... At least with Dylan you are getting... well.. Dylan.

Oh man I'm excited. Seriously, if the rumours are true (they are not, they are possibly rumours I dreamt... but you never know) And Bowie is thinking of touring, or playing a festival in 2009... 2009 will be the best year yet

Got myself a couple tickets for the Glasgow show; relatively close as well - back of the front block, if that makes sense...

Not seen him before so I'm greatly looking forward to it.  Plus it gives me an excuse to fill in the gaps of any missing albums!

All of those are a rip off though, they should never be charging gig tickets at that kinda cost, especially someone who doesn't really need the cash!

Still despite long swearing I would never pay more than 20 quid for a gig ticket, I have now spent 50 near enough, to see him at the 02. I couldn't really miss a chance to see him. So I will be in Row H of block 108 which See Tickets promised me is the best avaliable at that price. Very much looking forward to it. I don't really care about the money, despite my principles

Hah, I do agree with you that gig tickets are too expensive... but that was just my thought process that helped me justify spending the money

Anyone complaining about paying 50 to see Dylan doesn't deserve a ticket. You're not going to a gig, you're going to see a fucking master play some of the best songs ever written. I'll be up early tomorrow morning to try and get a couple of Dublin tickets for myself and my dad.

Calm down, I bought the bloody ticket. I love Dylan and agree he is an absolute master. But the suggestion that I should feel privileged to shell out 50 is a bit much, frankly.

Actually you're paying to see an old geezer who has sounded like a gecko for well over a decade now butchering some of the best songs ever written.
