Almost 25,000 Tickets Sold for Paul McCartney's Missoula Concert

MISSOULA -

Tickets are almost sold out for Rock 'n' Roll legend Sir Paul McCartney's first-ever Missoula concert.

The August 5 concert will take place at the University of Montana's Washington-Grizzly Stadium, which has the capacity to hold 25,218 people.

Adams Event Center Executive Director Brad Murphy said, as of 4 p.m. on Friday, almost 25,000 were sold.

He added that most available tickets were for the top-dollar seats, but even those were steadily being purchased, and he expected all tickets to be sold by the end of the day on Friday.

Murphy said that fans started camping out for tickets at 3 p.m. on Thursday, and everyone who stood in line, whether is was starting on Thursday or on Friday, got a ticket.

It has taken six years to bring McCartney to Missoula.

The last concert at the stadium featured the Rolling Stones before a crowd of more than 23,000 in October of 2006.
