Bob Dylan to Reopen Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre

Bob Dylan will officially reopen Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre . The legendary singer/songwriter will play the first show under the venue’s new management on September 4. With a capacity of only 1,800, this is one of the smallest shows Dylan has played in recent memory. Bobdylan.com has announced that tickets to the performance will go onsale on August 17 at 10:00am EDT. Pre-Sale tickets will be available through Dylan’s site on August 13 at 10:00am EDT.

Though this is Dylan’s first known performance at the historic theater, he has used the Cap to practice for upcoming tours in recent years. He is one of several artists who have used the space for rehearsals since the venue stopped hosting live music on a regular basis in 1998. As previously reported, the venue’s grand reopening schedule includes performances by The Roots, Bob Weir, My Morning Jacket, Blues Traveler, Spin Doctors, moe., Umphrey’s McGee, Steve Miller Band, Guster, Herbie Hancock, Dirty Projectors and many others.
