May 3: Bob Dylan – The Warehouse, New Orleans 1976

bob dylan 1976

..Dylan starts his portion of the show off nicely by himself armed with an acoustic guitar. Other highlights include the only tour appearance of Love Minus Zero / No Limit, and the Desire tracks, along with the only known performance of Rita May.

Another GREAT 1976 concert, and the only known concert performance of Rita May.

    Next to you I feel like nothin’

  1. Saw “The Night of the Hurricane” Spectacular show. Lucky enough to have seen Bob eight times. IMHO, The Rolling Thunder Tour was his best. Energetic and Jubilant … Bob really enjoying himself. Not particularly pleased with what it tuned into and was eventually aired on NBC.

  2. Love the 76 shows, as things get ever more ragged … Much like the shows that closed out 78…
