October 31: Bob Dylan Chicago, Illinois 1999 (Full concert video)

bob dylan 1999 chicago

1999 was a great year for Bob Dylan’s “Never Ending Tour”.

For all the splendours of earlier in the year [1999], this last leg was the most consistently triumphant. By the time Dylan brought the year’s touring to an end, with an extended set on November the 20th, he had played 121 shows – the most in a single year of his entire career. It had been a very good year, the best since 1995.
~Andrew Muir (One More Night: Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour)

A lot of concerts from this tour are in circulation (both video & audio) and this concert is (again) a great example from that last leg.

  1. A great show that I had to leave midway through (my wife was almost rendered unconscious by the cigarette smoke — the nicotine variety — that was the worst I’ve ever experienced anywhere). The fact that it was a Grateful Dead-eqsue crowd on Halloween made it more entertaining. BTW, the name of the venue is the University of Illinois at Chicago (aka UIC) Pavilion.
