Ticket sales for the Bob Dylan concert at Township Auditorium Nov. 11 did not increase Thursday, despite the announcement that the singer had won the Nobel Prize in Literature.
However, sales for the show have been steady, the venue’s executive director Aundrai Holloman said. “Since word is just getting out, we’ll probably see an increase tomorrow,” he said.
Holloman added that he expects the show to sell out before Nov. 10, with only balcony seats still available as of Thursday. Dylan’s 2004 performance at the Township in 2004 “did very well,” he said.
Dylan become the first American in more than 20 years to claim the Nobel Prize in Literature. The Swedish Academy praised Dylan “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition,” noting the five-decade recording career that has made him a fixture in the nation’s musical canon.
Dylan will receive a medal and a prize of about $925,000 with the honor.
