Very cool!

I’ve never actually attended a Dylan show, but I did listen and linger awhile outside the fencing surrounding his concert at Toronto’s CNE stadium on August 29, 1988; I also caught a glimpse of him through his tour bus window after the show.

  

I pulled out right behind his tour bus. Had a moment where I thought about stalking him to his hotel and staying there (i was 3.5 hrs away) but quickly decided to go back home.

Just saw Dylan for the first time. Second show of the Rough and Rowdy Ways tour, man he sounds great and his sense of humor is still sharp as ever. Gave a new breath to the new songs that I’m still getting to know, and did some fantastic renditions of a few classics from Blonde On Blonde, Nashville Skyline, Shot of Love, etc. Awesome show. 

Me being pernickety, but second show of the third leg of the Rough and Rowdy Ways World Wide Tour 2021-2024, first leg being 2 November to 2 December 2021 (21 shows), the second between 3 March and 14 April (28 shows). You went to show 51 of the R&WT.ahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10

Do you have the count of how many legs and shows were in The Never Ending Tour? Its too bad I never got to see any shows from that tour which had been going since before I was born. Either way R&RW is an awesome album, and his performances of those songs in particular went over well with the audience who mostly didn’t know them beforehand.

How about a series of posts with the theme “Concerts Gone Wrong”? First up, jazz sax man Sonny Rollins.

In 1972 I was treated by a stranger to my first jazz club concert. The club was located on a busy street in a college town. I remember there was a little lobby that opened up to a bar area. Besides the large wooded bar, there were couches and closed circuit tv broadcasting the performance from the showroom. The showroom had many tables and chairs with a small dance floor in front of the stage. The entire place including the walls and chairs was covered in red velvet. The artist was the saxophonist Sonny Rollins, who is black. To my surprise there was not one black person to be found, only long haired 20-something caucasians like me (and I had a fake ID). It was clear that the rules of etiquette of this place were to socialize in the first room and focus on the musicians in the second. We watched the first set in the bar and then moved up close to the stage for the second set. I was not familiar with the jazz code of conduct and had a hard time finding the groove. I may have closed my eyes like during a hippie space jam and just let my mind wander. The concert appeared to come to an end and without warning Sonny grabbed the bar stool he’d been leaning against, raised it over his head, and smashed it into pieces. One of the legs went flying by my head as we walked off like nothing had happened. At first I thought maybe he was doing a “Townsend” move, but the guy I was with said he was pissed off at the crowd. Now that I know more about this passionate artist, I suspect he was frustrated with his playing that night. Either way, I took the fractured stool leg with me and must have been a curious sight walking down the street with it hanging on my shoulder.

This is the second in a series of posts titled Concerts Gone Wrong. This one features a 1980 show by singer/songwriter Harry Chapin. 

I saw him once at a Stop Hunger outdoor benefit at Stanford University. The “ticket” to get in was a can of food. He was playing solo and I remember when he sang Taxi he taught the females in the crowd to sing the falsetto part (it was funny and poignant at the same time). There were about 20 or 30 frat guys crowded at the front of the stage. They were all wrestling around while drinking beer and generally creating a rowdy scene while Harry was trying to play. Finally after a few songs Harry jumped off the stage right in the middle of these guys. We didn’t know what he was going to do and then we realized he was joining them. He had a beer and sat on the grass chatting for a while. Eventually he got back on stage and continued the show. I don’t know what he said but the frat guys calmed down and listened to his music. His way of handling the situation was just so cool. By the end of the show the entire crowd was singing the chorus to Cats In The Cradle while he conducted and smiled away
