It's an honor to say that I saw Dylan play. He was absolutely wonderful!

I love Dylan but it wasn't a good performance. If he had played more of his classics I could deal with not understanding him. If I could have understood what he was saying I could have appreciated the newer material more. Hearing songs I don't know on top of not being able to make out the lyrics was awful. His voice is shot and he didn't pick up a guitar. The opening act was more enjoyable.

The sound system is terrible at the CFSB building! They need to put a better system in or stop having concerts there.

The problem with most stuff at CFSB is they crank the bass all the way up like a 17 year old kid. They don't care about sound quality as long as shit rattles.

It's sad that country and Christian rock concerts sell out there but when a living legend comes to town we can only fill the lower level.

That's what i've always heard about bob, he never plays his classics and when he does he doesn't play them like you remember. I went in knowing what to expect, and i enjoyed it. All Along the Watchtower was an awesome closer.

Honestly though this man has fifty years of material, and you only want him to play the stuff you like?

The CFSB has absolutely nothing to do with the audio of a concert. Whoever is performing brings in their own audio equipment and is in control of it.

The crappy acoustics of the building are the problem.

I think he is getting a pass for a bad performance because of who he is. If an unknown gave that same performance he would have had people walking out. His voice is awful and I couldn't make out a word of it.

The sound was pretty good in there. I've got a feeling the people saying otherwise haven't been to too many concerts. It doesn't get much better than that in arenas. They aren't built with acoustic quality in mind. That being said, they should've booked it in the Lovett although I'm not sure Lovett would've held everybody.

It is sad there weren't more people there, but I wasn't surprised. Western Kentucky has always been fairly devoid of musical culture, and that's why I've travelled away from here hundreds of times over the years for live music.

As far as Dylan's performance goes, what do you expect from a 71-year old? Hell, most of the 71 yr olds around here spend their time at home or Captain D's. If this was the first or only time you've seen Bob Dylan, then that's your fault. He's been touring strong for the past 30 years.

The way I look at it, we were paying homage to a living legend. The greatest songwriter of the 20th century, bar none. If you want to hear the same song played the same way every time, I don't know what to tell you......sounds boring to me.

Dear powers that be, please book more musical acts here and sell us beer when you do. A good time will actually break out more often.

If he is going to charge that much for tickets he should make the performance worth it. If he is too old to do that he should retire. I wanted to hear good music, not worship him.

Why would anyone be surprised at the bad show and small crowd? Dylan hasn't ever been a very good live performer and his bad reputation in that matter is catching up with him. That's about the size crowd he draws everywhere. He had just played St. Louis a couple of nights before and didn't sell out the only 3100 seat Peabody Opera House until right before the show. Whether you're a legend or not if you consistently have an attitude of indifference and sometimes down right hostility towards your fans eventually they're going to stop supporting you. His age has nothing to do with it. I've seen plenty of artists that old and even older that could still entertain.

No doubt, all he ever had going for him as writing good lyrics, WRITING being the key word. Terrible performer, terrible voice, look at Ozzy, old as hell but is still all over the stage and get's the crowd into the show, Dylan just stands/sits in one spot with his eyes closed mumbling something to the sound of music.

It takes more talent to be a writer than a performer. Studio musicians can play almost anything with precision but they are not stars because they lack creativity.

I saw Bob Dylan in Atlanta in 1973... some of my best memories.
