Bob Dylan

The soon-to-be open Capitol Theatre in Port Chester will open its doors on September 4 and the kickoff show is a doozie: Bob Dylan! That's one week before his new album, Tempest, is released. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 17 at 10 AM with a presale through BobDylan.com on August 13 at 10 AM.

This show happens shortly after the previously-mentioned Big Flats show and almost two months before Bob's upcoming Brooklyn show at the Barclays Center. Updated Dylan dates are at the bottom of this post.

Tickets to a few of The Cap's initial line-up of shows went on sale today (8/10) including Dirty Projectors (9/25), Regina Spektor (10/3), Hugh Laurie & the Copper Bottom Band (9/08). A flyer with The Capitol Theatre's schedule to date is below.

Dylan is still awesome, of course with every song the audience gets to play the dylan "what f'in song is this...?" game for the first two minutes of each number. It's not bad, it GENIUS people.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2012 1:56 PM

These days Dylan isn't just going through the motions, he's affirmatively shitting on his songs. Talking and grunting through the lyrics as if he can't wait to get them over with.

Watch an old man drool over himself and shit his pants at the new capitol theatre!

I liked how Dylan talked shut about Paul McCartney.
He was like, "I'm not a pop artist that just plays the hits, if that's what you want, go see Paul McCartney".

And I think Dylan is still at the top of his game.

That schedule is very white, circa 1995.

Dylan is what Grammy Hall would call "a real Jew"

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2012 3:25 PM

2:06, I've unfortunately seen Dylan lately. Also heard a lot of this year's live recordings and they are painful. Talking and grumbling through the lyrics as fast as he can get them out, like he hates playing them.
He's not at the "top of his game", 2:16. If you really think that, they are you are truly an idiot. He's had flashes of being great in the last 10 years, but 2012 is very far from that.

The line up for the Capitol is appropriate for a Westchester audience. Soon they will be hosting musicals, magicians and the Wiggles...

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2012 8:39 AM

Would be cool to see Dylan in such an intimate venue, not so much to hear him, though.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2012 10:25 AM

2:16, I'm pretty sure Dylan plays "Like a Rolling Stone" at every show.

CAPITOL THEATER: SWITCH YOUR TICKETING AGENCY FROM TICKETFLY TO ANOTHER ONE.

TICKETFLY SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 11:22 AM

TicketFly could not handle the on sale this morning.

Capitol Theater is off to a great start. No box office. Only TIcketfly which cannot properly process orders on the theater's first show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 11:24 AM

and explain to me why a theater opens with no Box office?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 11:25 AM

Getting tickets to anything remotely in demand here is going to be impossible.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 11:33 AM

Got my tix very easily during the presale, but yes Ticketfly sucks

Posted by Venkman | August 17, 2012 11:43 AM

Why would you open a splashy new venue and go with a shitty outfit like Ticketfly?

Recipe for disaster.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 12:10 PM

Yeah, they refurbish the whole place, book some good stuff, make all this effort and then ruin the whole customer experience right out of the gate by hooking up with one of the worst ticketing services out there. A small agency that cannot handle large event sales.

shame. This will hurt their business.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 12:16 PM

had tickets in the cart, went to purchase it, and Ticketfly wouldn't let me buy them. Threw me out of the system completely. With no box office or alternative method of purchasing tickets, I was completely screwed.

Nice going Capitol Theater on the public on sale to your first show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 12:19 PM

Yikes, glad I snagged tix in the presale.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 12:21 PM

good doing Capitol Theater.... make it so that the only way you can try to purchase tickets is through an outfit (TICKETFLY)that won't let you buy them after you have them on your screen, and don't give anyone any other way of getting them.

now THAT is what I call a business model!

CAPITAL - DON'T HAVE TICKETFLY SELL YOUR TICKETS. YOU ARE NOT IN BROOKLYN BOWL ANYMORE.

TICKETFLY is not capable of handling your venue. Already right out of the gate they are a nightmare

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 1:35 PM

yep, my very first attempt to get tickets to the very first show at this venue and I ended up also having Ticketfly throw my ticket in my basket into the wind then place me into a 'waiting room' only to tell me it was sold out.

If this is what getting tickets to this venue is going to be like for anything even remotely in demand, I'll skip the trek up to Portchester thank you very much.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 1:51 PM

another small ticket agency nightmare to deal with.

ridiculous.

The people who put this whole Capitol Theater thing together need to take a good hard look at the company they chose to sell their product and then change them!

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 1:54 PM

Isn't this the same awful ticket company that was responsible for the Kraftwerk ticket fiasco at MOMA?

Wasn't that a red flag/signal to this new venue to AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS?

The consumer fallout from that debacle alone should have been enough to send the Capital Theater elsewhere in their start up venture.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 1:58 PM

clearly for the Kraftwerk thing, MOMA didn't give a shit that people were frustrated with TIcketfly's inability to deal with the sale properly. But you would think The new Capital Theater would be interested in their customer's frustration. Guess not.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 2:00 PM

ticketfly is the worst and makes Ticketmaster seem great.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 2:11 PM

Ticketfly didn't handle the Kraftwerk show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 2:11 PM

If this show was sold through ticketmaster you would still be bitching about not getting tickets and there woukd be a shitload more tickets stubhub.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 2:16 PM

laughing hysterically at the thought of there being any 'consumer fallout' as a result of the kraftwerk fiasco (which was done by showclix, not ticketfly).

you all just whined for two weeks, talking about cancelling your moma membership (which would be a financial loss for no one other than yourselves since they aren't going to refund your membership fee). then you just shrugged it off and did nothing.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 2:23 PM

It's amazing how other smaller ticket agencies can actually make Ticketmaster look like the greatest company in the world.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 2:48 PM

ticketfly pretends they are so holy and fair but they are sleazier and meaner than ticketmaster.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 3:33 PM

Ticketfly is simply too small a company to be able to handle anything of any importance.

And their customer service is laughably non existent.
