For Dylan, it’s cash and carry

Bob Dylan’s come up with a way to beat the scalpers and ticket surcharges: The 2,250 fans who enter the Warfield in San Francisco for Wednesday’s concert will pay $60 — literally $60, cash money, paid at the door on the way into the concert.

The line will be allowed to form at noon, the doors will open at 5:30, the show will begin at 8. There will be no advance sales.

A statement by promoter Goldenvoice’s David Lefkowitz, on the company’s website, reads, “Given the state of touring and how fees have escalated, it was a real breath of fresh air to do something very consumer oriented by eliminating all ticketing charges. It’s almost a throwback to another time.”
