My hubby is an AVID Dylan fan, and I've been hearing his music against my will for 42 years. I only understood the lyrics to the 2 "ballads" he growled out. The band was so unbearably loud...the fans were either in 2 camps--rocking and rolling or falling asleep, despite the sound level. I know the dude is old, and seeing him in concert was a bucket list thing--but I had to leave early and escape to the lobby--where met about 20 other people like me who were unhappy with his show. I know he doesn't interact with the fans, didn't expect him to, but the whole thing just seemed very un professional and sloppy. One guitar was so out of tune I wanted to weep. The "warmup" Mavis was AMAZING!! Her, I could have listened to all night. The theartre is gorgeous and we will go to events there again. Not a bad seat in the house!!

October 26th 2019 this was extremely disappointing show Bob Dylan does not interact with his audience at all his songs were unrecognizable if I could give this a 0 star rating I would have I would not recommend his show to anyone

My husband and I loved Bob Dylan songs of old and thought this would be a fun, nostalgic concert. We splurged for great seats in the 3rd row middle of Grand Tier. Honestly, I feel cheated on the entire evening. I could not understand one sentence this guy "sang". He grumbled and growled in his deep throaty tones. Not one song was familiar, not even one. There was no program. Maybe if the words were projected it would have been tolerable. He didn't even acknowledge the audience, with a hello, nothing at all! All in all, the evening was painful endurance of his performance! My Dylan should stop cheating his followers and hang it up!

Dylan show last nite at Robert Morris was garbage. Not many people would pay to hear that a second time. Living off his past and name. I left couldn’t stand the mumbling of an 80 year old. Al least he still has hair on his head. First time I saw him was LA in 1976. That was great last nite was a joke. Be honest. Townes van dant would have heckled him none stop.

Bad , cold, distant, monotonous. The legend is on, the singer is out. Very disappointment. He was a shadow walking of a dessert. He was lost. The best, the beautiful Beacon Building. Glorious space of beauty"

1.0 star rating Tracy from ROckville Centre, New York


Dylan sings , (mumbles) to please himself. So excited to hear him perform at the majestic Beacon theatre. The theatre outshined the performer! I recognized one song out of 18. He sings NOTHING to please his fans. Not one oldie but great. Could have been a great night with just his band. So truly disappointing. He’s a legend who sang like a nobody. He can still play the harmonica with feeling!

Terrible. The most disappointing concert I've seen. He butchered his songs; Dylan's "singing" was inaudible. He has a very strong supporting band that was clear constrained and restrained due to Dylan. He had no stage presence. A complete waste of money.
