He brought over all his fancy sound and lighting equipment from Scotland and his sound engineer and lighting engineer. They made a great show. He’s a great showman, Bobby.

He included some great songs in his repertoire. Some favourites of mine were Positively 4th Street, Visions of Johanna, Forever Young, The Hurricane and, of course, Like a Rolling Stone and Blowing in the Wind.

He threw in Stuck Inside of Moville (originally Mobile) as well.

As I say, Bobby is a great showman. He staggered over the stage as he sang Everybody Must Get Stoned.


Bob Dylan doesn’t talk to the audience.

Bobby Does Dylan talks to them all the time between songs. He really connects and every song was clapped long and loud.

He told the tale of how his lighting engineer was prevented from coming over at first.

Most importantly, he told the story of his conversation with Bob Dylan in Glasgow after Dylan saw his video on YouTube playing at the Oran Mor and asked a top Scottish DJ to find Bobby for him.

When I saw it was two hours I thought that might be too long. But the time flew by very quickly.

It was a great performances and an outstanding show.

It will be his final performance tonight at St Eugene’s Hall from 8pm to 10pm.

Tickets are €7 for adults and €4 for children under 14. They are available at Gillen’s Shop on Lower Main Street and Rosatos Bar in the Malin Road. You can also pay on the door subject to availability.
