A great 2014 leg ended 17 July @ Main Stage, Kirjurinluoto Arena, Pori, Finland.

He’s now Playing his third 2014 leg down in Australia & New Zealand (9 August – 10 September), and only a few videos have popped up on youtube yet.

I feel it’s time to reflect a bit over the European leg by choosing some of my favorite videos.

Forgetful heart
Lost your power of recall
Every little detail
You don’t remember at all
The times we knew
Who would remember better then you

They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
’Twas then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

It’s been such a long, long time
Since we loved each other and our hearts were true
One time, for one brief day, I was the man for you

There’s an evenin’ haze settlin’ over the town
Starlight by the edge of the creek
The buyin’ power of the proletariat’s gone down
Money’s gettin’ shallow and weak
The place I love best is a sweet memory
It’s a new path that we trod
They say low wages are a reality
If we want to compete abroad

I’m searching for phrases
To sing your praises
I need to tell someone
It’s soon after midnight
And my day has just begun

Soon After Midnight @

’Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

  1. Dylan’s voice is finally back with a vengeance, amazing! The 2013 European Tour marked the beginning of this rebirth.

  2. Thank you for this posting: all of the performances are great, beautiful, moving. Of this remarkable set I think the revamped version of “Workingman’s Blues #2: is the best. Totally reworked lyrically and musically, set on fire by one of Dylan’s best vocals.
