Bob Dylan’s ‘Americanarama’ tour is moving indoors.
Originally slated to take place at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, the highly-anticipated July 19 concert is being relocated just up the street to Webster Bank Arena.
In making the decision, concert organizers cited the “potential of damage” to the Ballpark At Harbor Yard’s grass field, which is water logged due to recent rainfall.
“Thanks to the Bluefish organization for their willingness, cooperation and outstanding efforts to accommodate this tour, and to the Webster Bank Arena for providing a new home for the concert in Bridgeport,” Jam Productions, the concert organizer, said in a statement Friday.
All tickets purchased for the show will be honored at Webster Bank Arena. Fans who cannot attend the concert can access refunds via the Bridgeport Bluefish website. General admission tickets are still available for $68. For tickets, go online or call 800-745-3000.
Standing room only spots will be given out at a first come, first served basis, with a maximum of 2,000 concertgoers permitted in that area, according to Mike Foley, director of communications and booking at Webster Bank Arena. Seating around the arena will be available for remaining ticket holders.
Dylan, who has been on his “Never Ending Tour” for nearly 15 years, will be joined by Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham.
