Last night I was lucky enough to see Bob Dylan live in concert at the ICC Theatre in Darling Harbour.
It was the fourth time that I have seen Dylan perform, and it was his best concert yet. The set list was packed full of incredible songs and, in true Bob Dylan style, many of them were reworked magnificently. I have included some Bob Dylan Spotify links throughout this post, for your listening pleasure!
Photography was strictly banned during the performance, so obviously I don’t have any photos from the actual show. Not that I would have taken any anyway – mobile phone screens are a blight on modern concerts. Fortunately, most Bob Dylan fans are pretty well behaved and my view was rarely interrupted by a phone screen. I did, however, snap a couple of photos of the magnificent screen that wraps around the entrance to the ICC Theatre.
It’s an incredible entrance to an incredible building. It was the first time that I had been to the rebuilt ICC complex and it’s fair to say that I was thoroughly impressed. I have always liked the Daring Harbour precinct (I’ve never understood the incessant moaning that always seems to go on about it).
Bob Dylan at the ICC Sydney Theatre – Darling Harbour
Photography was banned during the performance, but I did take a photo well before it began. This photo shows two things – the incredible space that is the ICC Sydney Theatre, and the excellent vantage point that we had throughout the show. Bob spent the night sitting (or standing) at the baby grand piano and our view of the great man was perfect!
One of the many treats of the night was Desolation Row, the 11.5 minute-long rambling story that I have mentioned in a previous post.. It was incredible to see that song performed live.
As always on a Sunday, I’m linked up to the excellent #MySundayPhoto linky. It’s hosted by Darren Coleshill on the website Photalife. I highly recommend you click on the link (or the badge below) and check out everyone’s photos.
