Bob Dylan Brooklyn Concert Tickets Edging Up in Price

As D-Day* is approaching we decided to check back and see what scalpers are getting now for tickets for the August 12 Bob Dylan concert in Prospect Park.

We last checked on June 5, when general admission lawn tickets -- face value $55 -- were going for $140 - $200 at TicketTriangle.

Last night, those same lawn tickets were selling for $250 - $290. (Try StubHub for cheaper lawn tickets -- last night there were still some for $190.)

On June 5, the reserved seats, face value $85 - $100, were going for $300 - $600 at TicketTriangle.

Last night, they were fetching from $300 - $927. (On StubHub, they were running about the same, from $299 - $972.)

Is there a price too high for Dylan fans?

I'm flying in from Texas for the show and I CAN'T WAIT !!!! Got my lawn ticket for $55.00. Why is this ticket scalping legal in NY??

Wow! Flying in?
Are all the lawn tickets the same or is the lawn sectioned off, front, left, etc?

I believe the lawn is just that, a lawn, not sectioned off !! Brother Geoff better join me and Meg from Joisey for the show !!

Hi! I would like to buy a ticket but do you know the difference between the General Admission Lawn Tickets and the Lawn Lawn tickets? Thanks!

Don't think there's a difference. Heard the lawn is great, however.

I just bought 2 lawn tickets for $125a piece off of craigslist. Hopefully it's not a scam! Anyway I've never been to a concert at prospect park before....any tips (best view, what to bring, etc)?

I'm hoping to bring a small blanket to sit on. Anyone know if this is allowed? Also, what time to get there for a 7 p.m. show time? (General admission tickets.) Thanks
