For those who don't know, wonderful venue, but chapest tickets could be very bad for sighting the stage.

Here You can have a list of videos of Enrique Bunbury & Nacho Vegas performing there professionally filmed (in a officially published DVD) to have a idea of how You can see a rock concert there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCWMLKWPbd8&list=PLxAigIeClCYgMxcAfDpiYDlJRlJYGFGG1 I was there, on row 6 right side and had a perfect sight of the stage.

Looks like a fine place for some Bob shows.

Anyone know how the acoustics are generally in this wonderful looking venue? And given the recent complaints from the last leg of not being able to see the main man down the front, any fears with this venue's layout that this could occur? I'd imagine it being a small venue (2300) that stage height would be quite low- can anyone confirm?

My experiences there are great sound and great views of the stage from all the lower part. In the higher parts there are seats with bad visibility (the 75€ ones). I had never been in the higher parts so I can't sayy how is the sound there. My parents had been for an opera and they say it sounds great anywhere.
Take a look to the videos I posted to have an idea of the views. I was on 6th row, halfway right part that day and saw everything perfectly. Sound was even better than You can hear in the video, specially impressing in the heaviest sounding songs like Bravo and the most delicate ones like the intro and Días extraños.

160 euros for a concert ticket seems a little bit absurd, but 75 euros for a "15% visibility" seat is just ludicrous.

Yes. And I am not sure it's 15%

It's an opera house and it makes some sense sell cheap tickets to hear the opera and not see. But not for a rock concert.

You can compare the tiered pricing for an Opera, and the tiered pricing for Bob Dylan. Draw your own conclusions about the "blind seats".

It is actually possible to have an idea of what you will be able to see - or not - from your seat with the "3D view" thing on their website. Just pick up a seat and they'll show you the view from that seat. Let's say you choose "Zona Quart Fila 1 Seient 73": you'd be paying 75 euros for a 0% visibility seat!
If anyone wants to check the 3D view thing, have a look at the Norah Jones concert: https://suitefestival.koobin.com/norah_jones?idioma=CA
The ceiling looks amazing, though.

Full disclosure apparently!
It’s the people’s choice. Ha!

Meanwhile, half the folks in the “expensive” seats are
conversing and not paying attention.

Well, what about 220 euros? Which was what the front ten rows or so cost!
