Not many youths and teenagers came to Bob Dylan’s concert yesterday, to them, his music is something far back in the mid of the 20th century. And obviously, there were people who left in the middle of Bobby performance.

Audiences’ expectations were “Blowin’ in the wind”

After a very short introduction, Bobby’s fist song was Gonna change my way of thinking. “Change my way of thinking, make myself a different set of rules. Change my way of thinking, make myself a different set of rules. Put my best foot forward, stop being influenced by fools”

Not a single world such as “hello” or “hi”, that’s just the greeting way of Bobby. A sign that his was not gonna be the same as we hear in the CDs. With new melodies, he brought us something new, something that we didn’t expect. But not all audiences happy with that, most of them waited to hear Blowin’ in the wind, The times they are A-Changin’, that just didn’t happen. Anyway, with Bobby, nothing is meant to be the same.

But not just some audiences didn’t happy with Bobby’s performance, Human Rights Watch sound a concern that Bob Dylan sang as authorities told him to. But the company that organize the concert said, as usual, they had to send a list of 50 songs that Bobby might sing to the authorities and none was rejected.

Steve, an Australian said to BBC that he was a bit disappoint because he was expecting to hear such songs as Blowin’ in the wind, The times they are A-Changin’, Bobby just didn’t. Another audiences, an American, said we should enjoy this opportunity. Anyway, Bobby and his band aren’t perform in Saigon every night and this is once of a life time to hear his songs in Vietnam, the country which its war was inspiration for Bob Dylan to stood out with his anti-war songs.

It was just not gonna be the same.
