René Magritte on the setlist is also a nice surprise.

Can't run but was played more than 40 times in the past during the tour with Bob Dylan in 1999. But it's a great addition. Love the setlist.

B-O-R-I-N-G set list! Basically the same songs as last years tours!

OK, so this is allegedly the last tour. So a "greatest, greatest hits" would have been more appropriate, in my opinion. Maybe spiced up with two 2 - 3 song that he never (or almost never) have played before. I mean, it is not as if he is plugging a new album release this time around.

So the only surprise is "Magritte" (which may very well end up on the coming album, I suppose). Not the most exciting track from H & B that I can think of...

Why ensist on playing a cover ("Mystery Train") on the last tour again, when there are so many PS songs that we will never hear live again? This cover has really outplayed itself on earlier tours and have been released on live album(s)/dvd(s) too. Bad decision!

"Dazzling Blue" and "Rewrite" are also worn out (the respons from the public when I heard them last in concert was at best... well, uninterested...).

The S & G selections are six and well chosen, and seems like a fair enough part of the show (given that his solo career has been so much longer).

NOT ONE SINGLE SONG FROM HIS BEST ALBUM ("Rhymin' Simon")! :( "Kodachrome", "Something So Right", "Love's me Like a Rock", "American Tune" would all have improved the set list, disregarding which song they would have replaced. And then there are still more good songs on that allbum ("Was A Sunny Day", "Learn How To Fall", "Take Me To The Mardi Gras"...)

All in all, this set list is worse than when I the one was when I saw him two years ago. And given his track record, he will not change much until the tour comes to Europe.

I won't even mention "That Was Your Mother" and "The Cool, Cool River", which certainly would fit in the "overplayed" category of last years...

No France, Germany, Spain. Dates for New York were added later. This last tour was planned in a hurry. But why?????

Ouf...I am disappointed too. Although I hope things will change and evolve over time. I am seing him in one month.

No 'Wristand' ?!

Yeah, tired of 'Cool, Cool River', 'Dazzling Blue', 'Spirit Voices', 'That Was Your Mother'. :-(

I don't know why he got stuck on his mind that 'Rewrite' was the hit on SBOSW. Give us the title track instead !

'Mystery Train' ? He has been doing that in a form or another for the last 10 years.

Had I known, I don't know if I would have bothered attending.

Yeah, this is disappointing. I agree with almost everything mog wrote - except I will always enjoy Cool, Cool River, no matter how many times I've heard it life :-)

But I would certainly like for him to substitute Dazzling Blue, Rewrite (yes, give us SBOSW and LIESL in stead), That Was Your Mother, Spirit Voices, Mystery Train (enough now!), and even though the "new" additions are OK, I have many songs I would have chosen over Can't Run But and Questions for the Angels (should have been Wartime Prayers).

Well, we can always hope, that this tour will include more alterations in the setlist than usually :-)

Review from Vancouver. No word on a possible new album Bodo.
They say he has a 15 person band on stage?
