Paso Robles Mid State Fair
Paso Robles Mid State Fair
i'll be there, my first show was him at Cal Poly in SLO. Can't be a better first concert than a living legend.
ya definitely thinkin bout going to see him...sad to hear aerosmith sold out within the first THREE hours last friday!
bummer! im not a aerosmith fan but im glad the MSF is doing better this year. i regret not catching tom petty, paul simon, Bob Dylan john fogerty in years past.
he should headline next year
im thinkin bout goin to his show...what would an ideal setlist of his look like so i can prepare?
I finally got around to seeing Dylan last year on tour with the Foo Fighters. Boring, boring, boring. Dylan didn't even play the guitar. He did sing "Stuck Inside of Mobile...", but the only way I recognized it was because of the bassline.
I've always heard that he was hit or miss and my night it was a 100% miss.
No such thing as an ideal setlist.
And I saw him at The Forum last year, but the sound was horrid. I think Kings of Leon opened, but it was one of the many times I was supposed to see them but didn't. I'm thinking of going to this as well; depends on my schedule.
The best part of it was his band, hands down. He played with some amazing musicians. The lead guitarist was especially incredible. I was watching him most of the show.
At leat I'm able to say I've seen Dylan play. Had to at least once.
I did hear he is playing his guitar again this tour. Or least he did in Europe
Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.
how much are tickets and where can i get them? I went to his site and it said you have to have a pw to buy tickets for this.
Find out Summerkid; then inform Delta.
Thanks. You're a doll.
I missed him when he played UCSB and I kind of regret it but I did hear that he sucked that night so I don't feel so bad. It would be fun to see him at least once I guess.
Which begs an interesting question? Pick any band/artist that you've never seen and assume you could only see them one time and you KNEW it was going to suck. Would you go seem the show anyway just to say that you saw said act live?
For my money, I would not.
if you guys were asking about tickets for the midstate fair, you can grab tickets at vallitix.com
I've noticed this leaving the hundreds of shows I've attended in my lifetime: I've left shows that I KNEW were horrible (The Stones "Bridges To Babylon" comes to mind) and you get a certain percentage of the people in the exiting crowd exclaiming how fucking great the band performed. It's like people set their expectations so high that regardless of what they were presented with, they can't bring themselves to the truth.
When people say, "At least I got to see ________" (defending the suckiness of the whole event) I think of them as having a similar mindset as the people I described above.
Saw Dylan last year and had a good time. Was a little disappointed he didn't play guitar at all, and some of the songs didn't click live the way they did on record ("Just Like a Woman" being the most egregious example), but once I got over the fact that I wasn't seeing Blonde on Blonde-era Dylan, I appreciated the concert for what it was. He's going to be back in town in July, but the unfortunate thing is that it's just a couple days after Daft Punk in LA and I don't know if I can swing another concert so soon.
Wikipedia seems to think he is headlining Coachella next year.
Headlining or not, the new Rolling Stone has the "70 Best Dylan Songs" in tribute to his 70th birthday. And for once they got something right, Tangled Up in Blue is #3.
I'll be in the Sahara...
I love Dylan, but I refuse to see him live now.
I'll have to check out the rolling stone issue. And damn straight that song that should be up there always.
Dylan would not be good on the main stage at a big fest like Coachella.
I saw him at the ACL Fest in '07. I thought he sounded OK - but I'm sure that was because I was relatively close (between the soundboard and the stage). Lots of people said he sounded awful from far away, and that I can believe (in one reviewer's words, "like a dying goat").
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
