Bob Dylan returns to Wisconsin: One tour debut, but nothing from 'Tempest'

See also

Bob Dylan returned to Wisconsin last night, back to the state where he proclaimed, on Monday, President Obama would win Tuesday's election in a landslide. Then the night after Dylan's prediction came true, Dylan finally premiered "Early Roman Kings," only the second time a song from his latest album, "Tempest," has been performed live.

At the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dylan and his band returned to the status quo. "Watching The River Flow" was the opening number for the first time since November 1, support act Mark Knopfler joined Dylan on stage for three numbers, and there was one song added to the autumn song list - "Million Miles."

Oh. And nothing from "Tempest."

Below is last night's Dylan set list, courtesy Bob Links:
