Bob Dylan will perform in Prospect Park on Tuesday, Aug. 12, The Brooklyn Paper has learned.
The concert is part of “Celebrate Brooklyn,” the annual concert series but was not announced publicly. Instead, the show was announced in a single line on Dylan’s Web site on Monday, June 2, though tickets, ranging in prices from $55–$100, went on sale at 10 am that morning for registered members who had the promotional code “Tilden.”
Those pre-sale tickets were expected to sell out quickly through Ticketmaster. If any tickets are remaining, they will go on sale on June 13.
For the legendary folk-rocker, the Prospect Park concert comes at the end of his current “Modern Times” tour, which kicked off on May 16 in Worcester, Mass. and will take him to the Canadian Maritimes, and through Scandinavia and Europe before ending here.
In support of “Modern Times,” his critically acclaimed 34th album last year, the Pulitzer Prize–winning Dylan’s eclectic shows feature a mix of his best-known works (“Highway 61 Revisited,” “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding),” and “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”) and some obscure songs like “Cat’s in the Well.”
Last night in Helsinki, Dylan offered up a classic mix of songs, ending with his most famous song, “Like a Rolling Stone.”
