Bob Dylan and His Band Wrap Tour

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan and His Band recently just completed their spring 2013 tour that took them all over the east coast and some of the mid-west.  2013 marks the 25th anniversary of Dylan’s popularly named “Never Ending Tour,” duly named for their never ending touring schedule.  This segment of the tour started out on April 5 in Buffalo, New York and wrapped up in St. Augustine, Florida a month later on May 5.  Dylan sounded raspy but chipper at his golden age of 71.  He spent most of his time behind the piano during these shows and sang his tunes in the familiar Dylan style.  Aside from Dylan on keys, vocals, and harmonica, his band included some extremely talented musicians.  Dylan was joined by Stu Kimball and Duke Robillard on guitar, Tony Garnier on bass, George Receli on drums, and Donnie Herron on percussion, mandolin, and banjo.
