Pre-sale tickets for the October dates went on sale today at 10 a.m. PDT. Tickets can be purchased by simply following the preorder tickets link on and then entering the special password. Seattle show password = turley, Portland show = steelhead, Berkeley shows = blondies and Hollywood shows = yucas.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Aug. 10 (for Seattle and Portland), Aug. 14 (for the Hollywood shows) and Aug. 16 (for the Berkeley shows.)

If you’d rather see three singer-songwriters for the price of one, you still have a chance to catch one of the Dylan/Nelson/Mellencamp shows.

Tomorrow the guys play Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas. Additional stops include Quiktrip Park in Grand Prairie, Texas (Aug. 7), Journal Pavilion in Albuquerque, N.M. (Aug. 9), Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz. (Aut. 11) and Chukchansi Park in Fresno, Calif. (Aug. 14). The tour, which kicked off July 2 in Sauget, Ill., wraps up Aug. 16 at Harveys Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena in Stateline, Nev. (Although the Aug. 16 show only includes Dylan and Nelson.)

Fans who purchased pre-sale tickets to the ballpark shows earn an added perk of entering each venue 30 minutes early. Showtime is 5:30 p.m. and gates open at 5 p.m. pre-sale ticket holders can enter the gates at 4:30 p.m.

In addition to old favorites, Dylan will be sharing tunes from his most recent release, his 33rd studio album, Together Through Life.
