It was a long-rumoured tour that finally came to fruition starting back on October 5.

Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler brought their show to Torontofs Air Canada Centre on Wednesday night offering up a lot of new (Knopfler) and quite a bit of classic old (Dylan).

Knopfler opened with an eleven song set that included five songs from his latest album, Privateering, and only two recorded before 2000 including one Dire Straits song.

Dylan then came on with a 15 song set that spanned his career going back 1963Œs Blowinf in the Wind up to his latest, Tempest, from which he only played one song. Throughout his set, he only played multiple songs from one album, Highway 61 Revisited from which he played Ballad of a Thin Man, Like a Rolling Stone and the title track.
