7         the never-ending tour CONTINUES

7.1        Introduction

For the seventh year in a row Bob Dylan spent a good deal of his time on the road. This is also the fifth year of the Never-Ending Tour. Rumours in late 1991 had it that Dylan would take a long break. In the end he decided to give it another year. This year he played 92 concerts that kept getting longer and longer despite the fact that the number of songs remained constant. The shows were in general of a much greater quality compared to 1991, mostly due to Dylan's apparent renewed interest in both singing and playing guitar. Maybe as a consequence he became less and less talkative. Some of the late 1992 shows rank as the best ever from the Never-Ending Tour!

The 1992 tour consisted of five new "legs":

7.2        The Musicians

The addition of Bucky Baxter on a steel guitar and other guitar variants also meant a fuller sound and a greater diversity in arrangements. During the spring tour Dylan also added an extra drummer, making the backing band a quintet.

7.3        The show

After the first show in Australia, which had the 1991 format, all shows were structured as follows:

Main set:        7 electric songs

4 acoustic

2 electric

1 acoustic with the band/1 electric

1 electric

Encores:         2 electric

1 acoustic solo

All in all 18 songs. Exceptions were summer festival shows, which were generally shorter and some shows with fewer or no encores, due to either bad weather or sound problems.
