By Dennis Gorg, reporting live from St. Louis, Missouri
A few raindrops did nothing to deter die-hard St. Louis Farm Aid fans who waited in line for up to four hours to get their hands on tickets to Farm Aid 2009.
At 10 am CST, Farm Aid 2009 tickets went on sale at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater Box Office and online and over the phone through Live Nation but the excitement at the box office was palpable. St. Louis is a unique music market, where folks still lineup to get their concert tickets, instead of just going on. It's a fun experience!
Just as the ticket windows were set to open, the skies did too and we had some sprinkles but no one moved out of line! First in line was Katie Jones from St. Louis who purchased four tickets to the show and burst in to tears exclaiming that she just, "Loves Neil and can't wait to see him!"
The first 300 purchasers receive a free Farm Aid 2009 t-shirt. Ticket sales
continue strong and the line is moving fast as more people arrive on site to get their tickets for the first Farm Aid concert in Missouri! If you can't get your tickets in person, go to www.livenation.com.
Thanks for your support!
