Tickets, 1,500 of them, went on sale at noon Tuesday for the Wednesday night performance. Eager fans began complaining almost immediately that they were unable to buy them just a few minutes later.
But the Paramount replied to questions from Patch with this:
- Total capacity is 1,555 people
- Tickets were only available through Ticketmaster
- They were sold in pairs
- So 750+ pairs would have been available
- We have 28,000+ Facebook Fans and an e-mail database of 52,000+ plus local media announcements
- Sales went exactly as expected.
"We could have sold 20 Billy Joel concerts in a row," a Paramount representative said.
The concert is set for 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
