Great idea! I've been to see Bob three times previously and I enjoyed the previous two performances more than the first one. He's not as good a performer as The Boss, though.

I think that the venue and date for the 2006 gig in Cork was The Marquee and it took place on June 25th. See here:

Also, the 2004 Galway gig took place on June 27th. I was at that one and it's my favourite Dylan performance

Roll on July

Saw Dylan for the first time at Slane in '84, following year saw Springsteen, "the Boss". Dylan was magic, the boss man was all muscle and no soul. There is no comparison. Dylan is music, The Boss is showbiz.
