I am a big Bob Dylan fan. But how did he get so weird? I knew that his concerts are special: on a good night he makes some of his best-known songs unrecognizable, and on a bad one you come out wondering what it was, exactly, you’ve just seen. Yesterday, during the 90-minute show at the Beacon, he neither acknowledged the crowd nor spoke a single word. Even his band went unintroduced. It was almost as if they were playing before an empty house.
That’s Dylan, I guess. Or what happens to you when you have been touring sine 1988, won every prize out there, are 76 years old and never really cared for anything but pure music. #bobdylan#dylan#beacontheatre
“Ground Control to Major Tom”. Fantastic tour @speronewestwater with @tomsachs, explaining his Space Program and why he’s facing even more challenges than @elonmusk. And why his @nike shoes are the best ever produced. The piece in the background costs $500,000. #tomsachs#speronewestwater#nike#nasa#contemporaryart
