Those who cast doubt on Bob Dylan’s ability to perform were forced to eat their words after his excellent performance on Monday night.
What hasn’t been said about the old-timer’s performance skills? They said that he was tired, they warned that his voice has gone, they predicted a catastrophe similar to his 1987 performance, but all their warnings were unfounded.
It was not a perfect performance, but it exceeded the expectations of the most optimistic of Dylan’s fans.
Whoever left the stadium disappointed arrived initially with unrealistic expectations.
The first positive surprise was Dylan’s voice: Hoarse and rusty, but in the best sense of the words. He sang powerfully, potently, relatively clearly and above all, there was a real vitality in his singing, one may even say joy.
