Bob Dylan - 10/27/01 @ the United Center
The Beatles once asked, "Will you still need me, when I'm sixty-four?".
Well, the former Robert Zimmerman a/k/a Bob Dylan from Duluth,
Minnesota is definately needed at the just turned age of sixty. With albums and songs that pass for music regulary hit the charts, it's nice to see that the original troubadour hasn't lost his step in his almost four decades of
making history, I mean, music. Mr. Dylan brought his "Never-Ending
Tour" to Chicago.
Let's get one thing out of the way, he played "Knockin' On
Heaven's Door". The price of admission would have been worth it just
to hear him play one of the greatest songs of all time. We were also
blessed to hear him play, "Blowin' in the Wind", "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" and "All Along the Watchtower". By the end of the show, the audience was rolling (literally) in the aisles and having a grand time and I do believe, although don't quote me on this, by the end even Mr. Dylan cracked a smile.
Now that says something all by itself.
