The first day of ticket sales for Alan Jackson’s appearance this fall at the St. Joseph County Grange Fair was overwhelming, fair manager Bill Johnson said.
Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday and a line of more than 250 people was in place outside the fairgrounds ticket window. At the head of the line was a group that had waited since noon Tuesday, Johnson said.
A team of four people inside the ticket sales booth was able to serve the long line of Jackson fans in about an hour.
Johnson said about half of the 5,200 tickets for the Sept. 22 performance were sold on opening day. Presidential Seating – trackside seats in the rows closest to the stage – were priced at $67 each, sold out in 10 minutes.
He said Wednesday marked the most tickets sold on an opening day since reserved seating was made available in the early 1990s.
