BobTalk

That was Neil Young's version of Shelter From the Storm.

We're...we're not trying to fool you with feedback. We're not trying to make you think we're doing something. (before Stuck Inside of Mobile)

I wanna see everybody clapping! Yeah, my drummer wants to see everybody clapping. He says if you ain't clapping, get outta here! He's just drumming, though, I'm not sure how long he's gonna stay. (after Stuck Inside of Mobile)

Notes

Version 1:

Then during the band introductions after Tears Of Rage someone rushes on stage and the guy next to the taper remarks, "awww, no, he's kissing his feet!" then after a pause Bob goes back to the intro's and starts to say that Larry is the drummer before correcting himself.

Version 2

Prior to the start of Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat, several members of the audince rushed the stage. One person fell to his knees at Dylan's feet and kissed his boot, Bob just shrugged and looked confused while the audience cheered. A woman jumped on stage and threw her arms around Dylan, they appeared to be talking, and it took about one minute for security to pull her off of him. He was laughing at that point and strolling around the stage.
