Why wasn't Dylan there?

I think he was on tour in the US and couldn't make it.

Bob was indeed touring at the time. Bob is always touring! However, a couple of weeks before the concert, he paid his own tribute to the upcoming anniversary of George's death, on 13 November 2002 in New York City, by playing Something for the first time, and preceding it with this comment:

George was a giant, a great, great soul, with all of the humanity, all of the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the common sense of a man and compassion for people. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him.

Bob rarely comments on those who have passed. It was maybe his first comment on George's death, his first acknowledgement of his loss. It showed how much he loved the man. Just as, years later, with Roll On John, he would pay tribute to our other lost Beatle.
