I've been to Bob Dylan shows where he did not do an encore. In fact, I saw him in Pittsburgh at a smaller outdoor venue where he looked at his watch halfway through a song, stopped singing, waved to the audience, said, "thank you and goodnight" and left.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, I was at a Bonnie Raitt show on her 30th(?) birthday where her encore turned into a full third set. A cop there for crowd control began opening the doors at the back of the venue. Bonnie yelled at the cop, "It's my birthday and I'll play as long as I want".
