Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant Live Performances From the Year 2000




We’re playing over here with a lot of pride, it’s a big honor to play in this country, Great Britain. When I grew up, they used to tell me about the Battle of Britain, RAF, Winston Churchill, all that stuff. Now, we all know that Britain stood alone and without any allies; and that always meant a lot to me and everybody that I grew up With.
-Bob Dylan (Onstage, Wembley Arena, London, 5th October 2000)

Never Ending Tour 2000

Start date March 10, 2000
End date November 19, 2000
Legs 5
No. of shows 75 in North America
37 in Europe
112 in Total

The year 2000 is regarded by many bobcats to be among the best N.E.T. years.

I´v chosen 5 of my many favourite performances in 2000,  4 of them from the second “Europe” leg (September 13 – October 6). This leg seems to be the favourite leg (in 2000) to many fans (performances from this leg are quite easy to find on youtube, different forums, bootleg blogs, etc..).
Please use the Comments section to  post your personal favourites from 2000.
The year kicked-off with 2 great shows @ Anaheim, California on March 10. The early show featured 2 live debuts; Tell Me That It Isn’t True and Things Have Changed.

Watch Bob Dylan Performing a Beautiful “Not Dark Yet” in Vienna 1999

Shadows are falling and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep, time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal
There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Watch: Bob Dylan Performing a Wonderful “I Want You” in Torino, Italy 1998





The guilty undertaker sighs
The lonesome organ grinder cries
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn
But it’s not that way
I wasn’t born to lose you

Bob Dylan Performing “Desolation Row” in Gelsenkirchen, Germany – July 2, 2006 (video)





They’re selling postcards of the hanging, they’re painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors, the circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner, they’ve got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker, the other is in his pants
And the riot squad they’re restless, they need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight, from Desolation Row
