One thing all this "interaction" with ER has shown is that AMIT is THE definitive MK forum now. :)


You mean there are others out there?  ;D

Interesting they quote a post from our forum  ;D
So, did Bob really play "Blind Willie McTell" - without MK??

Yeah, hopefully Pottel feels this restores some respect for AMIT after the poor setlist showings. :)

Just for your information, the guy who does that Bob Dylan "Examiner" page (Harald Lepidus is his name) gets paid every time someone clicks on one of his pages. What he (overwhelmingly) does is gather bits and bits from here and there on the web and puts together a piece, sometimes without a credit or a link to the original, gives it an intriguing title to attract visitors and sits back and takes the cash. Sometimes, he spreads one of his "stories" over several successive pages to increase his take.  Not uncommonly, he puts two and two together and makes five. For example, he picked up, from John McCusker's website that John would be on the Dylan/Knopfler tour and promptly reported that John McCusker would be the support act to the two of them.  At times, he has had several links on the ER website at a time and I have complained to ER's originator, Karl-Erik, about this. If Mr Lepidus picks up something of interest to Dylan fans on the web, he should simply send the link to ER, as so many others do unselfishly. More recently than my direct complaints to Karl-Eric, there has been a topic on the ER discussion pages about Mr Lepidus and his activities, many of the comments reflecting my own views. Personally, I no longer click the links to the "Examiner" pages and would encourage others to avoid them, too.

With the end of this tour now in sight, I thought I'd mention some information that someone I know has compiled.

After 27 shows, performing 14 or 15 songs per night, Dylan has performed 49 different songs.

Would someone care to work out the statistics for Mark Knopfler's sets?

We must bear in mind that Mark's set is only 11 songs and he has played on 15 or 16 of Bob's songs too.

In case anyone wonders, my comment was not intended as a criticism of Mark Knopfler but as a comment on the difference between the two performers.

Thanks for the French-compiled statistics.

Out of the 34 different songs performed by Mark over 27 concerts, 16 have been in his own set and 18 have been part of Dylan's set. That statistic, in itself, says something about their different approaches to performing. In reality, of course, the difference is even greater because Mark has not been joining Dylan on-stage for all 27 concerts but only for the more recent shows.

Hmm...  Indeed, they are both very different performers in the live arena.  I admire Dylan as an artist but don't really see what he offers to a live audience, unlike MK.  Mark and his band are well into the actual music instrumentally, unlike Bob, and as such it's not so easy to chop and change the set.

Bob has also been touring lately, presumably with the same band so they will know the songs whereas MK hasn't been on the road since July 2010 and with a couple of changes in the line-up.

Read on Guy forum :
Q : Guy, since Bob Dylan is touring almost 6 months every year is there any chance you will go on tour with Bob again in the next years... let us say in the USA......?    

A : I cannot comment on this

I guess that there is a chance that we'll see a "Bob Dylan & Mark Knopfler Tour 2012" thread here.

I have said elsewhere that, given how well the two bands and the two crews got on and given the evident respect the main performers showed for one another, there would seem to be a decent prospect of another BD/MK tour - as much as either individual can be predicted at all.

Amongst Dylan collectors, it is understood that he will not be appearing in Britain in 2012, so elsewhere would suggest North America. Frankly, a promoter offered such a combination would jump at it. In my view, it is the different approaches to live shows of these two artists that makes for an interesting evening's entertainment. The "mono-culture vultures" here and on ER will doubtless bleat about it but I, for one, would welcome the opportunity to see these two on the same bill again. Bring it on, I say.
