Bob Dylan – Never Ending Tour 1990 – Part 1





People can learn everything about me through my songs, if they know where to look. They can juxtapose them with certain other songs and draw a clear picture. But why would anyone want to know about me? It’s ridiculous.
-Bob Dylan (to Edna Gundersen on August 31, 1990 in Lincoln, Nebraska)

Bob Dylan – Never Ending Tour 1988 – Part 1





– “I really don’t have any place to put my feet up…. well, we want to play ‘cause we want to play… Why tour?
It’s just that you get accustomed to it over the years.
The people themselves will tell you when to stop touring.”
-Bob Dylan (to Kathryn Baker – Aug 1988)

The Never Ending Tour is the popular name for Bob Dylan’s endless touring schedule since June 7, 1988.

AD: Tell me about the live thing. The last tour has gone virtually straight into this one.
BD: Oh, it’s all the same tour. The Never Ending Tour…
-Adrian Deevoy Interview (October 21, 1989)

Bob Dylan has later rejected to “Never Ending Tour” tag.

Don’t be bewildered by the Never Ending Tour chatter. There was a Never Ending Tour but it ended in 1991 with the departure of guitarist G. E. Smith.
-Bob Dylan (album sleeve notes to World Gone Wrong (1993))

..but many of us like this tag, and continue to refer to his endless touring since June 7, 1988 as “The Never Ending Tour”.

..lots of surprising song selections, a tight band and Dylan in great and authoritative voice, willing to radically experiment (the re-worked Dignity, for example) and – once again – reinventing his back pages.
~Andrew Muir (Razor’s Edge)

Bob seems to be in a good mood, the band is tight, and the performance is incredible. We get to hear two songs performed live for the first time ever.
