If you invite someone as a special guest to a party, you don't just ignore them, do you!   That would be very bad manners imo.  

Absolutely agree. To be honest, the whole "OMG Bob is a legend, if I smile at him and he decides to ignore me that's fine because well he is Bob" thing is starting to annoy me. And for me, all the explanations are lame excuses, sorry. Legend or not, he is a human being and should be aware of the term politeness. Full stop. And sending notes?? That's like emailing a colleague sitting right next to you!
If I was MK, I would be very frustrated the way things seem to turn out.
Bob toured with Paul Simon, which was kind of pointless, too, but at least they played a couple of songs together. I will never forgive Bob for ruining "The Sound Of Silence" but it was a nice gesture anyway. Also, I really liked their duet on "I Walk The Line" (first time I heard this song was on some PaulBob bootleg, thought it was a Dylan tune!).

But maybe I'm wrong and there are still some surprises coming up...

Isn't it all just a business thing? Both have to bring up less input than usual (Mark 70 instead 120, Bob's set is also slightly shorter, and he gets bigger arenas filled than usual?) I am not sure about this but I think financially it is a very good deal for both of them? For example, MK should be less exhausted after these 30 shows than he would be after 30 of his "usual" shows. Costs and expenses (presale, promotion) for selling out 30 arenas in Europe seemed also to be shared. As Bob asked Mark, I still think it is a mercantile thing in the first place and has no artistic reasons - of course the name has to be a big one (like Mark's is in Europe, others are in the US).

As Guy meant, it was never planned to join the stage together, so we should leave this to them... Maybe there will develop something fine. I am sure both artists would not have any plans before the tour and both would just see how it goes, and maybe then anything could happen...

Come one, its not the same to have an unknown or not very known artist as a support act that sell a tour as a "double headed concert" with Mark Knopfler, who sold millions of records with his band Dire Straits and has a very succesful solo career. Its not a support act, both of them have around 70 minutes to play, but Bob goes last, as he

See you in 2012.

I'm thrilled to find AMIT and meet you all but I think I shall take a break here until the Dylan-Knopfler tour is over.

I look forward to yakking about the new album and hopefully the upcoming solo tour in 2012. Bye.

Comes a bit surprising? I am sure you will have your reasons. Will you share them with us?

We are not inside.
We don't know how all this really happened and how it was really dealed.
Remember we got the info from Guy not Mark himself.
So Guy tells what he see but even him may not be fully aware of the story.
As simple as a private phone call between Mark and Bob would be only known by these two if none talk about.
We are just speculating.

I agree. With Bob only arriving at the venue shortly before he is due on stage there would be no time for him to speak to Mark on the night of the show. That's almost certainly why Dylan sent a message and I'm sure no offence was intended or taken.

absolutely. we all know how it is when mark is on his own tour, these guys, i mean mark and bob, they are being kept in a sort of capsule, the show is what counts. all the rest is taken care of by their teams of people.

There's a story of Dylan being in the recording studio and a fairly high up music biz person giving a lengthy speech about how great Dylan was and all his accomplishments to which Dylan responded by walking past him without a word and getting on an exercise bike.  Nice?  Maybe not, but he's clearly a private person and one who doesn't care for chit chat.  That's his right as it's yours or mine, and I'm sure that's why he usually walks in the door minutes before the show and walks off the stage and into his bus.  There's also no reason to assume ANY bands on the same bill hang out, eat, travel, lodge or socialize together.  From what little I know of the music business that's a bit of a fan fantasy - most especially when the performers are all older guys, bona fide pros of any sort, much less ones with decades of success as both Mark and Bob have had.

If Mark was offended by the "note" or whatever it was, presumably he wouldn't have shown up to play.

I would hope that both bands, including MK & BD would have some sort of get-together - a meal or a bit of a party, sometime during the tour.  Or will never the twain ever meet?  ???
