Dylan Takes a Stand

Brother John sends along this link:
Bob Dylan is refusing to sell advanced tickets to an upcoming concert in a bid to tackle internet resellers and give fans an equal chance to catch him live.

Tickets for the folk singer's concert at The Warfield in San Francisco on Wednesday will be sold at the door. Fans will be permitted to line up at midday but will only be allowed to buy one ticket each, in cash.

The plan was established to prevent touts from purchasing large batches of tickets and selling them for an inflated cost online. It will also eliminate handling and processing fees.

Dylan's still a rebel, even in his codgerdom.

  1. Dylan's still a rebel, even in his codgerdom.

    I've only been a fan since Blood On The Tracks. The whole meaning and import of everything earlier kinda went over my head plus I was way too young and had no older mentors digging Dylan.

    I really enjoyed No Direction Home and still recall being struck by how normal (Midwestern) his speaking voice is in that movie.
