The scale of the venues being visited this tour definitely indicates that the whole 'living legend' thing is being touted this year. A moniker which Bob has never really toured under. I'd like to see him, but Wembley is frankly rubbish to see this guy playing in, but it's been 10 years since he played Wembley, so we were probably due it.

Sod it, I might go and see him. Feels a bit rubbish to have missed him at RAH in 2015 and then having to slum it at Wembley arena. Bournemouth might hopefully be possible.

he played the o2 arena in 2009 which surely isn't smaller than Wembley arena… In fact the size of the venue doesn't matter than much. I've seen great shows in huge venues and poor shows in smaller venue. and it doesn't matter too much if there are 500 oder 10.000 people standing behind me.
The problem is not so much the size of the venue but the question whether it's GA or reserved seating.

no, larger venues just indicate that promotors believe that there is a market for Bob Dylan right now (thanks to the Nobel prize)

Yup. And we're probably the only ones pineing for another album.

Yes, we already covered that. ISIS reported that all 6 UK shows will be seated. The first few bits of information available on the ticketing websites confirm that.

Looking at the prices that are being quoted right now, it seems that we might have escaped massive increases for the Nobel tour, probably thanks (in part, at least) to the larger venues. I really hope it stays that way. On the other hand, it might be even harder to get good tickets.

It looks like there will be a pre-sale on Monday (10 am) for the two Motor Point arena shows: Cardiff and Nottingham

According to the info on their page, you just need to register and sign up for their newsletter until the day before the pre-sale in order to get the link sent to you.

Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday (9am).

This also likely means there won't be a 2nd show in London.

Thanks a lot! I just saw on their site that they have a pre-sale for people who have signed up to their e-mail. Pre-sale is at 10am tomorrow, but you had to be signed up prior to 7pm today. Just missed out!

Thanks for posting, Cohen.

£84 is a bit much though isn't it?! I'm hoping that's for the two central seats on the front row.

The fact that Dylan insists on playing without any big screen accompaniment means I won't even consider going to an arena gig unless I get decent tickets; I learned that lesson the hard way in Sheffield 2007 and Liverpool 2009. Seeing a tiny dot somewhere in the distance that could be anything or anyone tends to hamper your enjoyment somewhat. While big screens are not perfect that do offer some compensation. I went to see Neil Young at the 02 in the summer and, when I got tired of standing at the front, and made my way to the rear of the arena, you still had a decent view from the screens.

If you're a ISIS mag/DR Info Service, the easiest way is to try to get a ticket via the fan allocation. That will happen before tickets go on sale for the general public.

Next option is to make sure you're online when the tickets go on sale.

If none of those work, you could try buying a VIP package. Those are a lot more expensive and you'll end up with some garbage no one needs, but it takes a bit longer before they sell out, so it gives you time to try getting a regular ticket first. If you want a 1st row ticket in the middle sector, this might be your only option (whether or not decent 1st row tickets are available without a package varies from venue to venue, but less likely to happen for the UK shows).
