Bob Dylan @ Palais des Congres Paris April 7th 2009

UPDATED APRIL 9TH : Carla Bruni Sarkozy was at the gig ( with her husband ? ) , i've been told about it yesterday but as i didn't noticed it myself on the night I didn't talked about it. According to the press Carla even get Bob's Harmonica. BITCH

Bob Dylan @ Palais des Congres Paris
1st show April 7th 2009

1st show in Paris , it was sold-out a long time ago and many people were looking for tickets outside , you could get one from the scalpers for 250 Euros.
Patrice Guino, our photographer, who has connections all over the world could get us invitations on the 20th row , not the best seats in the house but who's gonna complain ?
Well... maybe him as he couldn't do any decent pictures.

Anyway , Bob is still stuck to his keyboards most of the time , only playing the guitar for a couple of songs ,and he's playing on all but 3 songs almost in complete dark ( " a fucking nightmare for me" dixit Patrice )
Of course when you go to a Bob Dylan concert don't expect the best , you go to see a Legend.
His glory days are long behind him and the poor sucker just CANNOT sing anymore at all.
Some songs , the most well-known ones , are barely recognizable.
Nevertheless there are some very good moments when the band is playing an extended version or solo and Bob is NOT singing.
Overall good 2 hour show.
