Concerts

Bob Dylan

When: Mon., Oct. 29 and Tue., Oct. 30 2012

As of this writing, tickets are still available for Bob Dylan's shows tonight and tomorrow at the 1st Bank Center (11450 Broomfield Lane, Broomfield, 1stbankcenter.com). That could change, of course, in which case those $45-and-up seats will be fetching whatever online resellers can get. But is the ever-mercurial Dylan even worth seeing these days? Hard to say, but he does have Charlie Sexton on lead guitar, has taken to playing a lot of grand piano, and is generally avoiding songs from the new Tempest album in favor of crowd-pleasers like "Highway 61 Revisited," "Tangled Up in Blue," "Ballad of a Thin Man," "All Along the Watchtower" and "Blowin' in the Wind." Exactly how recognizable those songs will be, given Dylan's croaky croon and penchant for radical reinvention, is anyone's guess. Showtime is 7:30, with Mark Knopfler opening. — Bill Forman
