[[File:Dylan2 Spectrum.jpg|thumb|right|(From left to right) Tony Garnier, George Recile, Donnie Herron, Bob Dylan and Stu Kimball at the Spectrum, Oslo, Norway, March 30, 2007 The Never Ending Tour is a popular name for Bob Dylan's ceaseless performing schedule since June 7, 1988. During the past twenty years, musicians have come and gone and the band has continued to evolve. Dylan's touring schedule has not been diminished by his age—he turned sixty-eight in 2009 and still plays around 100 shows a year. Dylan and his band have amassed a huge fanbase; some fans have travelled around the world to attend as many Dylan shows as possible.[1]

According to the count maintained by Olof Bjorner's Dylan web-site Still On The Road, Dylan played his 2000th show of the Never Ending Tour on October 16, 2007, in Dayton, Ohio.[2] Dylan has attributed much of the versatility of his live shows to the talent of his backing band, with whom he recorded the albums "Love and Theft" (2001), Modern Times (2006), Together Through Life (2009), and Christmas In The Heart (2009).[3]

Name

The tour's name was cemented when journalist Adrian Deevoy published his interview with Dylan in Q Magazine no.39, December 1989. The critic Michael Gray listened to Deevoy's interview tape, and points out in The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia that though Deevoy's article put the phrase into Dylan's mouth, in fact the label came from Deevoy in the following exchange:

AD: 'Tell me about this live thing. You've gone straight into this tour again — one tour virtually straight into the next one.'
BD: 'Oh, it's all the same tour.'
AD: 'It's the Never Ending Tour?'
BD: (unenthusiastically) 'Yeah, yeah'.[4]

Dylan has been dismissive of the Never Ending Tour tag. In the sleeve notes to his album World Gone Wrong (1993), Dylan wrote: "don't be bewildered by the Never Ending Tour chatter. There was a Never Ending Tour but it ended in '91 with the departure of guitarist G. E. Smith. That one's long gone but there have been many others since then. The Money Never Runs Out Tour (fall of '91) Southern Sympathizer Tour (early '92) Why Do You Look At Me So Strangely Tour (European '92) The One Sad Cry Of Pity Tour (Australia & West Coast American '92) Outburst Of Consciousness Tour ('92) Don't Let Your Deal Go Down Tour ('93) & others too many to mention each with their own character & design." [sic]

In a 2009 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Dylan queried the validity of the term Never Ending Tour, saying: "Critics should know there is no such thing as forever. Does anybody call Henry Ford a Never Ending Car Builder? Anybody ever say that Duke Ellington was on a Never Ending Bandstand Tour? These days, people are lucky to have a job. Any job. So critics might be uncomfortable with my working so much. Anybody with a trade can work as long as they want. A carpenter, an electrician. They don't necessarily need to retire."[5]

The tour was interrupted in 1997 when Dylan was forced to cancel dates after suffering a serious medical issue in May. CBS Records announced he was being hospitalized for a "potentially fatal" chest infection, histoplasmosis.[6] Since the tour began in 1988, Dylan's 1997 stay in hospital has been his longest break from touring.

Dylan's introduction

Since August 15, 2002, Dylan has been introduced at the beginning of most of his concerts with an announcement made by a member of his stage crew:

Ladies and gentlemen please welcome the poet laureate of rock 'n' roll. The voice of the promise of the '60s counterculture. The guy who forced folk into bed with rock. Who donned makeup in the '70s and disappeared into a haze of substance abuse. Who emerged to find Jesus. Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s, and who suddenly shifted gears releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s. Ladies and gentlemen — Columbia recording artist Bob Dylan![7]

This introduction was adapted from an article about Dylan that had appeared in a local newspaper, The Buffalo News, on August 9, 2002.[8]

Book and live recordings and broadcasts

Andrew Muir published Razor's Edge: Bob Dylan and the Never Ending Tour in September, 2001. The book chronicles the first fifteen years of Dylan's Never Ending Tour from the point of view of a committed fan of the Tour, analysing how Dylan varies his interpretations of his songs, and exploring Dylan's possible motivations.

The only complete live album of material recorded with the Never Ending Tour band is MTV Unplugged recorded in 1994 and released in 1995.

In 1994, Bob Dylan's performance of 'Highway 61 Revisited' recorded at Woodstock '94 was released on the Woodstock 94 CD and VCR.

In 2001, Sony released Live 1961–2000: Thirty-Nine Years of Great Concert Performances which included six songs recorded on the Never Ending Tour between 1994 and 2000. The song were: Somebody Touched Me, Dignity, Cold Irons Bound, Born in Time, Country Pie and Things Have Changed.

Dylan's performance of 'Down Along the Cove' from Bonnaroo Festival 2004 was released on the Bonnaroo 2004 CD by Sanctuary Records in 2005.

Spanish TV station TVE2 broadcast three songs, It Ain't Me, Babe, Rollin' and Tumblin' and Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, from the concert that Dylan performed at the Rock In Rio Festival, in Madrid, July 6, 2008.

Dylan's 2008 album, The Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs, included eight live performances from the Never Ending Tour, recorded between 1992 and 2004. The songs were "High Water (For Charley Patton)", "Ring Them Bells", "Cocaine Blues", "The Girl on the Greenbriar Shore", "Lonesome Day Blues", "Cold Irons Bound", "Things Have Changed", and "Tryin' to Get to Heaven".

In 2009, former Never Ending Tour drummer, Winston Watson released a DVD, Bob Dylan Never Ending Tour Diaries: Drummer Winston Watson's Incredible Journey, documenting his years touring with Dylan between 1992 and 1996.

Band

For a two and a half year period, between 2003 and 2006, Dylan ceased playing guitar, and stuck to the keyboard during concerts. Various rumors circulated as to why Dylan gave up guitar during this period, none very reliable. According to David Gates, a Newsweek reporter who interviewed Dylan in 2004, "basically it has to do with his guitar not giving him quite the fullness of sound he was wanting at the bottom. He's thought of hiring a keyboard player so he doesn't have to do it himself, but hasn't been able to figure out who. Most keyboard players, he says, like to be soloists, and he wants a very basic sound."[9] Dylan's touring band has two guitarists along with a multi-instrumentalist who plays pedal & lap steel, mandolin, banjo, violin and viola. From 2002 to 2005, Dylan's keyboard had a piano sound. In 2006, this was changed to an organ sound. At the start of his Spring 2007 tour in Europe, Dylan once again began playing guitar.[10] Currently, he plays keyboards almost exclusively but will occasionally play a song or two on guitar or take center-stage with just his harmonica and microphone.

Currently, Bob Dylan's band consists of the following members:

  • Bob Dylan – vocals, electric guitar, organ, harmonica
  • Stu Kimball – electric guitar, acoustic guitar
  • Donnie Herron – pedal steel, lap steel, electric mandolin, banjo, violin, viola
  • Charlie Sexton – lead guitar, dobro
  • Tony Garnier – bass guitar, standup bass
  • George Receli – drums

During a 2006 interview with Rolling Stone, Dylan spoke about his current band:

This is the best band I've ever been in, I've ever had, man for man. When you play with guys a hundred times a year, you know what you can and can't do, what they're good at, whether you want 'em there. It takes a long time to find a band of individual players. Most bands are gangs. Whether it's a metal group or pop rock, whatever, you get that gang mentality. But for those of us who went back further, gangs were the mob. The gang was not what anybody aspired to. On this record (Modern Times) I didn't have anybody to teach. I got guys now in my band, they can whip up anything, they surprise even me.[11]
—Bob Dylan, August 2006, Rolling Stone

Other notable members include Denny Freeman (Guitar, Slide Guitar from 2005–2009), Larry Campbell (Guitar, Slide Guitar, Pedal Steel, Banjo, Cittern, Mandolin & Violin from 1997–2004), Freddy Koella (Guitar from 2003–2004), David Kemper (Drums from 1996–2003), Bucky Baxter (Pedal Steel from 1992–1999), John "J.J." Jackson (Guitar from 1991–1996) and G.E. Smith (Guitar from 1988–1990). Between the years 2003-2004, Tommy Morrongiello, a technician on the tour, would frequently play guitar with Dylan & his Band. Charlie Sexton, who played the guitar from 1999 until 2002, returned as the lead guitarist in Dylan's band for the fall 2009 tour, replacing Denny Freeman.[12]
