bob dylan Champaign 1999

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 is in circulation (both video & audio) and this concert is a great example from that last leg. Highlights include: One Too Many Mornings, This Wheel’s On Fire, Not Dark Yet & Not Fade Away.

As a precursor of things to come, Winston Watson is the sole beatmaster tonight. Watson does not attempt anything too ambitious, although Dylan does attempt “Pretty Peggy-0” and “Queen Jane Approximately” to test his mettle.

September 10 – Watch: Bob Dylan @ WTTW-TV Studios Chicago, Illinois 1975

His presence burns from the video screen. His music bursts with aliveness. Anyone can see he’s being driven by some kind of primal force.
~Paul Williams (Bob Dylan: Performing Artist, Vol 2: The Middle Years 1974-1986)

GREAT performance from Dylan & his trio (core of what would become the The Rolling Thunder tour band).. They were the last act this day.. the filming was running late & they didn’t get to play before 2 am. Still there is fire in Dylan’s eyes.. and he drives his band through the songs.
