Bob Dylan played The Warfield in San Francisco last night and brought fans in under one of the more innovative ways to stop scalpers and ticket brokers from getting the leg up on deserving fans — they made tickets for sale on a cash-only, line forms at the door basis. Pretty impressive.
“The ticketing experiment was a very worthy endeavor,” Goldenvoice’s David Lefkowitz told Pollstar. “We set up street performers, port-o-potties and food vendors for the patrons in line. While the show would have sold more with advance sales, we were happy to take this ride with Bob Dylan and his team. It would be nice to see other artists and promoters begin to try different ways to shake up the rapidly escalating fees and scalper dominance.”
