Been a huge fan since the third grade. Finally gat to see him in Tulsa 2022 and absolutely positively for sure horribly let down. W0W he really let me down. I was so psyched to see him live.. especially with aa very expensive up front seat and what a major beer. One hour and forty minutes of fraud. Not one classic song. I will not count serve somebody. Avoid his concerts.and you'll continue to like him

Almost 2 hours of Bob Dylan talking/vocalizing, not singing. Every “song” sounded the same, not one BD hit the whole night. No energy, not a word to the audience, band that used the same basic beat and sound on every song, and (again) not ONE epic Bob Dylan hit. Felt embarrassed for him but more for the audience. Dylan is milking his career and ripping off his fans for more money; doesn’t he have enough? Worst concert in my lifetime. No encore either, but that was probably better for everyone.

I went to see Bob Dylan June 1, 2022 at the Paramount in Seattle. I am not a huge Dylan fan, but respect his place in music history. His song writing legacy is incredible. That said, this was an awful concert and occupies the spot at the worst concert I have seen in my long concert attending history. As others have said, his singing is no longer comprehensible (it was challenging even 40 years ago!) and he doesn't actually sing. It feels like being at a poetry recital with a band accompanying the poet, which may be semi enjoyable if you could understand the words! He didn't play any of his incredible hit list, and seemed disengaged from the audience. Very disappointing and we left half way through -- I couldn't get my money back, but at least I could get the last hour of my time back!

Seen Bob Dylan last night in Seattle. Sorry but I would not pay to see this legendary artist again. Complete disappointment couldn’t understand any of the lyrics. I seen legendary artists before like Santana twice and did not disappoint. I think the touring for Bob is to sell his latest album! We left before the show was over.

There’s is nothing Bob Dylan could do that would ever make me not love some of my favorite songs - they’re like old friends…but, seeing him in concert was a huge disappointment - especially after having just seen Paul McCartney (and they’re the same age…). Hey Bob! Guess what? All these people that came to see you, made you a wealthy man…would have been gracious to say, “hey Seattle, thanks for coming out…”. Hey Bob! Guess what? These fans are the difference between you being someone’s weird eccentric Grandpa, and living large in Key West…Hey Bob! Guess what - you’re old - so what? Hiding up there on that dimly lit stage, making concert go-ers lock their phones in sealed pouches…was that so they couldn’t take a picture of you or you didn’t want it out there what you sound like? You think all those people came out to hear just sing your new album - they didn’t…saw quite a few sleepers…Get over yourself, go to the McCartney show and take some lessons on what makes a legend great…

Go back to New York and retire, spare the rest of us from disappointment.

We were pretty sure it was Bob Dylan up there, because anyone else would have at least tried to sing those songs, instead of speaking them. We had excellent seats, but couldn’t see due to the poorly lit stage, and the fact that the house lights stayed on the entire time. The mumbling through the songs and the sad backing band made for a long, boring show which, combined with the fact that there was no ventilation in the theatre made the whole situation completely unbearable. Whoever told Mr. Dylan he should tour at age 81 should go to jail for embarrassing him so. This also explains why cell phones were not allowed in side. One sad video of this performance would end the tour.
