American Songwriter.com: What a difference six days, a better hall, much better seats and frankly a more cultured audience can make. The Bob Dylan concert tonight in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania was superior to Friday’s show in Newark, Delaware in every way.
We arrived to find the seating chart didn’t come close to letting us know how good our seats were on the left, exactly at stage level right next to the stage, and in the first row above the floor where no one could possibly block the view.
Immediately the difference in sound was noticeable with opening band Dawes. Where they literally got lost in the reverberating mush in Delaware, tonight they were clear and you could hear what a talented band they actually are.
…Dylan was leaning into and also leaning on the microphone stand as if it was a corner lamp post
