New video for you today, and from 2018! The fifth show at the Beacon Theatre, two days after it happened. This is the 39th concert of the 2018 US Fall Tour and the 81st of the year. Another amazing performance, and thanks to larryrulz recording, we have it in excellent quality. He also posted several videos of the show on his channel.

This year we are marking the 30th anniversary of the Never Ending Tour, Bob constant touring around the world since Concord, CA, June 7th 1988. In 30 years, Bob radically changed his style and voice multiple times, releasing 14 studio albums (from Down In The Groove to Triplicate), and playing almost 3000 concerts.
Bob is now taking over the Beacon for a seven nights residency, and singing some of his best performances he ever gave.
The fifth show is another example of Bob’s talent in reworking his own repertoire. The band is more in the background, leaving more room for Bob to express himself. The set didn’t change in the last days, but the performance are still very good, especially When I Paint My Masterpiece, Scarlet Town, a slowed-down Like A Rolling Stone, a beautiful Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright, and an unrecognizable Gotta Serve Somebody, perhaps his best closer in a while. I hope you will like this show. Again, thank you so much to larryrulz for recording and sharing this concert.
