Live concert that I've just returned home from Here's my review. PART 1: B.B. KING The thrill is gone away You know you done me wrong baby And you'll be sorry someday First up for the night was the King of the Blues, B.B. King and his trusty traveling companion Lucille. For someone who is 85 years of age, B.B. King can certainly still belt out a tune. His voice is incredibly strong for someone of his age. His set was short, and that was it's main downfall. Between a lengthy band introduction, bantering with the crowd and the customary guitar solos, drum solos, keyboard solos etc that come with a blues set, only 5 or 6 songs got played. Fortunately the classics such as "The Thrill Is Gone", "Rock Me Baby" and "Guess Who" survived such a small set. The musicianship was slick and well oiled from all band members, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better blues performance. If only it went for longer. 4 out of 5 stars. PART 2: BOB DYLAN Where have you been, my blue-eyed son? Where have you been, my darling young one? After the excitement of B.B King's set, it was d-day as far as the quality of my night was concerned. Reviews of Bob Dylan's recent concerts have ranged from "fantastic" to "inexplicately horrible" and I was really hoping it would lean towards the former on this occasion. I'm pleased to say I can draw one of three conclusions from the night's show. 1) People who complain about Bob Dylan concerts have way too high expectations 2) People who complain about Bob Dylan concerts love to whinge over trivial matters 3) Bob Dylan played one of his best shows of the last 30 years in Adelaide Bob played a great set mixing old and new, classic and obscure together into a great picture of Bob's career. He alternated between playing organ and guitar, and his voice held up for the most part, although for parts of "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" and "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall" his voice didn't quite make the high notes he'd set himself earlier in his life. His backing band were technically brilliant, although his lead guitarist seemed to think they were doing the Jimi Hendrix version of "All Along the Watchtower" during the encore. Bloody show off. Bob didn't do much interacting with the crowd, but you don't expect that with someone as reclusive as Bob Dylan. Overall, a fantastic experience that was uniquely Bob Dylan and made me one very happy Feldy. 4.5 stars out of a possible 5.
