October 27: Bob Dylan University Of Illinois Champaign, Illinois 1999 (full concert video)

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.

  1. This was Oct 31st not Oct 27th. Halloween night in Chicago. I was 16. This show had a huge amount of dead heads who showed up to see Phil and Bob.
    I had an amazing time on the floor.
    Bob Dylan was a passionate performer in 1999. Kinda sadly, he has lost the edge he had in 1999-2001 and is now less passionate and more hokey in his performances.
    Long live 1999.!

    1. Thanks for your comment.

      I’ve checked the setlists and this video has to be from Champaign…


    1. Hi,
      I’ve only embedded a youtube video.
      There are tools you can use to capture youtube videos to you’re local machine, but I don’t have/use any.
      Try google it.
