MINNEAPOLIS - Despite some online technical problems Saturday morning, tickets to the first-ever concert at Target Field featuring Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw sold out just hours after they went on sale to the general public.
The Minnesota Twins say tens of thousands of tickets for the July 8 concert sold out in about four hours.
Some fans experienced an issue that caused tickets to be temporarily unavailable.
"While we are thrilled the July 8 show is sold out, we acknowledge and apologize for the challenges some fans experienced in their attempts to purchase tickets. The Twins organization is working closely with our exclusive ticketing partner - Tickets.com - to investigate today's technical problem with the singular focus of enhancing the customer experience," Twins President Dave St. Peter said in a news release.
Fans unable to secure tickets are asked to check back at www.twinsbaseball.com/concerts as a limited number of seats may be released by the promoter for public sale in the coming months.
