Bob Dylan’s 30 year “Never ending” tour certainly is never ending, and not updated with the times.
At Dylan’s Spark arena show on Sunday night all phones were banned. In fact, there were no screens at all – not even on stage.
Stuff reviewer Jacques Steenkamp said the performance would have been difficult for those in the back rows.
“Nobody other than those lucky few in the first row could verify that it was actually Dylan on stage behind the piano,” he said.
Enforcement of the no screen policy was stringent, he said. Spark Arena staff warned people outside not to use their phones once in the arena, and security enforced the rules inside.
Bob Dylan’s final performance is tonight at Christchurch’s Horncastle arena.
