My preconceived idea of Dylan was a gorgeous young idealist who provided a voice for his generation. So I viewed tonight’s concert with a mixture of anticipation and curiosity. Mark Knopfler, former lead of Dire Straits, did the first set and played brilliantly. His electric guitar sent vibrations around the Apollo. He was the perfect accompaniment as at times he sounded eerily like a much earlier Dylan. Knopfler played some well-known songs including the beautiful ‘Sailing to Philadelphia’ and finished his set with a version of ‘Brothers in Arms.
Never one to take the obvious route, Bob Dylan was hardly likely to start aged 70. His 90-minute show at the Hammersmith Apollo includes no encore, minimal crowd interaction and only a handful of classics – yet still manages to be an incredible night of live music. Having long grown tired of his own back catalogue, the Minnesota man has taken to completely re-imagining his songs: the sound that he and his five-piece band now create is closer to 12-bar blues than folk balladry

His intuition proved correct: Live at the Apollo – the first of four albums Brown recorded there – charted for 66 weeks. Bob Dylan once introduced this album's opening song, "Tangled Up in Blue," onstage as taking him 10 years to live and two years to write. It was, for him, a pointed reference to the personal crisis – the collapse of his marriage to Sara Lowndes – that at least partly inspired this album, Dylan's best of the 1970s. In fact, he wrote all of these lyrically piercing, gingerly majestic songs in two months, in mid-1974
