Guy said today he doubts they will play together again and that no one has seen Krusty. He seems like a right Diva to me. So glad I'm a MK fan.

Just read that this very minute.  Unbelievable. :hmm

Okay, dmg, I see you're disappointed (and can understand it to a certain extent), but re: playing with Dylan I think the story is a different one. If you go and look at the posts on the Expecting Rain forum, you'll see that the Dylan fans are deeply confused and disappointed, too. My guess is that Dylan (not Knopfler) is having a hard time, for whatever reason, maybe he's unhappy with his band, his new album, his own performances, whith fans walking out ... Something is happening there, and I don't know what it is :-), but it's nothing good.

One year ago, after a dozen days on the road, evebody, including our very own GF, had the feeling it could not happen. Everybody was expecting MK to play with Bob since Dublin.
So Guy doesn't see Bob. Was the same last year...  Of course Guy is a direct witness,  but Bob is involved... Anything can happen any time when Bob is kn the middle of the game.
My bet is it's gonna happen.

Perhaps it's the empty halls.  One of the video's showed Mark playing to a front few rows with only a scattering of fans.  Must be kind of disconcerting.

I wonder if MK is having a "it seemed like a good idea at the time" moment. I for one still don't get why he has toured with Krusty.

It sure is a puzzler, isn't it!  He could be promoting his new album properly and more importantly giving his fans across there a proper tour.  Instead, he's wasting his time, playing a 70 minute set opening for someone who won't even converse with him or his band! :disbelief

I would think the 2011 tour was a big success and a big joy for Mark & band. If any, I wonder why he toured AGAIN with him only one year later, instead of promoting his own album... But really, I never thought that Bob Dylan could really have problems to fill bigger halls in the US or would get in trouble with the US audience response in general... obviously the Europeans are the bigger fans? Or are more tolerant??

If there are many empty seats then it would appear it was a bigger success in Europe. Which surprises me as I thought Dylan was massive stateside. Maybe its the never ending tour. Or his, to put it politely, challenging live shows.

Quite possibly;  too much of something, no matter good or bad will always lessen it's impact.

Someone on Dime left this comment on the Regina bootleg:

"Good capture on this one.we were there  sitting behind the soundboard in the stands and I must say where we were sitting the sound in the place was excellent for Knofpfler.I can't understand why Knopfler and Dylan did not attract a larger crowd than what was there though,there was nobody around us for at least a 20 foot radius. Probably only  enough people to fill up the Conexus  for this concert ."

Also, the venue changes speak for themselves.  In the clip I saw, Mark must have seen the empty seats in front of him.  Couldn't have been nice.

A sad commentary on the state of music here in the US...Bob just isn't urban enough to sell the larger arenas anymore...even Bruce has trouble selling out 25,000 seat arenas..let alone stadiums. At least PCM has had the intelligence to hold venue size down on Mark's last two tours here...around 2,500...those sell out for Mark and he's peering out into a crowded house.

OK, I think I missed it somewhere, but other than it being "hilarious", why are we referring to Dylan as Krusty the Clown?
