Scalpers Push Dylan Ticket Prices Up for Brooklyn Concert

Pre-sale tickets for the August 12 Bob Dylan concert in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, are sold out. What are the scalpers getting?

The cheapest pre-sale lawn tickets ($55 plus about $15 work of fees) are now going for $140 - 200 on TicketTriangle. The chairs near the front ($85 - 100 plus fees) are going for $300 - 600.

The most desirable seats are going for up to $1000 on StubHub. That's just greedy!

Craig's list had some yesterday, too.

Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn might even give some away -- if Teen Spirit doesn't want them.

Have to hand it to the Brooklyn Paper for breaking news of the Dylan concert story first. Brooklyn Vegan commenters broke the secret code early on so quite a few locals snagged the hot pre-sale tickets at TicketMaster.

We've read that more tickets will be coming up at a future date, so keep checking if you're interested.

When I bought them I just wanted to see Dylan. Now I'm thinking I can finance my vacation.
