BRIEF: Don't get ripped off for Dylan tickets

May 30, 2009 (The Record - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Ticket brokers already are posting outrageous prices for Bob Dylan's Aug. 15 show with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp at Stockton Ballpark.

All seats are general admission ($68.50, before surcharges) and go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m.

A Google search found Internet scalpers were charging as much as $329 on Friday.

To avoid being ripped off, purchase your tickets only through the Stockton Ports, who are handling the sales.

Visit Tony Sauro's blog for more information about the concert.
