Bob Dylan played a song from "Tempest," for the second time ever, when he appeared at Toronto's Air Canada Centre earlier tonight. Since the album's September 11 release, Dylan has been stingy when it comes to performing material from his latest studio effort. So far, he has only played "Scarlet Town" on October 5, "Early Roman Kings" on November 7, and "Pay In Blood" last night. Earlier tonight, Dylan once again performed "Early Roman Kings."
Below is tonight's set list, courtesy Bob Links:

Besides "Early Roman Kings," the show included the tour debut of "Sugar Baby." Also returning to the set list were the fourth "Joey" (notably just after "Early Roman Kings") and "Man In The Long Black Coat." Besides the usual suspects, "Rollin' And Tumblin',""Visions Of Johanna," and "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" were repeated from yesterday's gig in Detroit. Support act Mark Knopfler guested on only three songs tonight.
