“Dylan’s concert sold out quite fast because the Prospect Park bandshell is a very small venue for such a superstar. Thereafter, the tickets were being sold for outrageous prices like 500 and 600 dollars online. It would have sold out whether the fence was see-through or not. Why not allow the majority of fans to enjoy the show. It would have cost them nothing to have the fence see- through and it would have made a lot of people happy. Too exclusive and too mean-spirited.”–Bob Dylan Does Prospect Park

    I’ve seen Dylan many times, and honestly this was a terrible show even by his most recent standards. Anyone who shelled out $600 for a ticket deserves to get ripped off.

    The fence was an abomination, a real slap in the face of taxpayers. The bandshell is in a public park; it’s not a private concert hall. If you feel the same way, send your comments to:
