Dylan @ McCoy Stadium, Pawtucket

This past Thursday I saw Bob Dylan at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, RI. I have seen him a number of times over the years, and it is common knowledge that you never really know what kind of show you are going to get with Dylan. The last time I saw him in Boston, just two years ago, he sat behind the piano with his back to the audience and only played songs from his last two albums. So be it, I guess when you are Bob Dylan you can do whatever the fuck you want.

The past couple of years Dylan has been playing minor league ballparks. I missed him last year when he played in Brockton with Willie Nelson, but this year my brother-in-law came through with some tickets. McCoy stadium is home to the Paw Sox, the farm team for the Red Sox, and home to the longest game in baseball's history, something like 33 innings! It is also a cool place to see a legend, and Dylan must have been feeling good, because he pulled it out and showed those of us standing on first base that he still has the stuff. Check out the setlist below:

Dylan is a friggin legend, great that you got to see him live. The benefits of living in largely populated areas are the concerts for sure.....
