It’s usually useless to try to predict what Bob Dylan might do next. He’s traditionally untraditional about mixing his set lists with unexpected obscurities while dramatically rearranging the early hits. So what are we to make of his tour last month in Australia, where he played the same songs in the same order every night? If the recent formula holds true, expect a lot of tunes from Dylan’s late­-career rejuvenation (gruff, growling blues such as “Things Have Changed” and “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’”) mingled with just a few of the eternal verities (“Tangled Up in Blue,” “Simple Twist of Fate”). Dylan has long been one of music’s most shameless plagiarists — even lifting parts of his own autobiography (!) from other writers — but he adds just enough of his own vision for a distinctly personal kind of found art. Also Saturday, Oct. 25, and Sunday, Oct. 26.
