First they locked up our cell phones so we had to plow thru a crowd after the concert to get them unlocked. They also confiscated our binoculars, god knows why, so we had to wait in line to retrieve them. From our seats we could not understand one word. Worst was Dylan did not sing the songs that made him famous. One woman in the front was so frustrated that she finally yelled out PLAY SOMETHING WE KNOW! Basically a waste of a lot of money and two hours of our time, not counting an hour driving each way to hear him.

no old tunes, no harmonica, i was expecting just a few of the oldies and there was No encore either

1.0 star rating R. Kaplan from Florida


We saw Dylan in concert tonight and were very disappointed. He came on stage without saying anything to the audience. He played the piano well and the 5 musicians who played with him were excellent. However, his voice was terrible and it sounded more like he was talking not singing. We were unfamiliar with every song he sung. After 2 hours, he left the stage without saying one word to the audience. We spent $340 for our two last row balcony seats and, except for enjoying the music of the five band members, consider this concert a waste of money.

If you want to hear older songs or something most of would appreciate, save your money and hassle and buy his greatest hits album. He was horrible!

1.0 star rating Larry from Fort Myers, Florida


Acoustics were beyond bad. He never left the piano which was a metallic hollow sounding keyboard. Couldn’t understand a word he said. Sad, almost laughable. Rip off beyond rip off. We left after 45 minutes which many did. Waste of time and money

1.0 star rating MikeJS from Orlando, Florida


He sang none of the songs that made him famous in the 60's and 70's and out of the music he performed one could not understand half of the lyrics mumbled and groaned by the octogenarian. And, to add insult to injury everyone had to lock their cell phones in a safe bag like the ones used for expensive items in Home Depot. Staff said if his majesty saw someone using them he would strop the concert and storm off stage, as if anyone would want to record unintelligabe music while he hid behind a piano. All I can say is: "He's got alot of neeeerrrvvve!"

He put me asleep throughout the whole show. I was expecting his harmonica playing and playing his rock hits or any hit. I have been to many concerts and this was the worse! He opened and played non-stop without talking to the Audience and mentioning his songs. I was hoping for a lot better performance after paying $300 for 2 tickets. Not one hit song!!! Why? Terrible if I wanted to sleep I could have stayed at home.
