The Richard Thompson Electric Trio (guitar, bass and drums) joined the tour July 2 in Memphis, Tenn. He has yet to see Dylan.
"We finish at 6 p.m.," Thompson chuckled earlier this week from a tour stop in Duluth, Minn. "Obviously most [ticket holders] are still getting off work. Bob plays at 10, 10:30 something like that. Sometimes our bus has to roll before he hits the stage. The guys I know are Wilco because we’ve done shows together. I’ve been sitting in with Wilco here and there."
