Bob Dylan To Close 2014 Tour With Four-Night Stint At New York’s Beacon Theatre

Fans of America’s most iconic singer-songwriter can now get their hands on Bob Dylan tickets for the four-night stint at New York’s Beacon Theatre which will close the 2014 leg of his record-breaking Never Ending Tour.

The 73-year-old has a history of wrapping up his year with a run of shows in the Big Apple, having ended his 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2012 tours in the city. But whereas he’s previously performed at larger venues such as the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, this time around he’ll be heading to the much more intimate 3000-seat Beacon Theatre.

Dylan, of course, has a strong affinity with New York, having moved there in 1961 in order to meet his musical hero, Woody Guthrie, before becoming the leading figure on the Greenwich Village folk scene, while he’s also written several songs (“Talkin’ New York,” “Hard Times in New York Town”) about his experiences in the city.

It’s this notable connection, alongside the fact that Dylan will be performing in the month of December for the first time since 1997, which perhaps explains why the average price for New York Bob Dylan tickets on the secondary market is at a whopping $957, compared to the $317 figure for the overall average tour price.

There are a number of Bob Dylan tickets available on the secondary market, with the opening November 28 date listed at a get-in price of $347, the following two shows on Nov 29 and Dec 1 at $1476 and the finale on Dec 2 at $272.

The eleven-time Grammy winner will kick off the tour on October 17 with the first of three consecutive nights at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre ($175) before moving onto the likes of Denver’s Bellco Theatre on Nov 1 ($348), Cleveland’s State Theatre on Nov 12 ($127) and Washington’s DAR Constitution Hall on Nov 25 ($135).

Those lucky enough to get their hands on Bob Dylan tickets should look forward to a set-list focusing on his more contemporary back catalogue, alongside the odd classic such as “She Belongs To Me” “All Along The Watchtower” and “Blowin’ In The Wind.”
