Most people expected Wilco tickets to go fast for their upcoming show at the Durham Performing Arts Center, but 17 minutes is a bit shocking. The show, slated for Saturday, March 27, set a DPAC record for fastest sell out ever with that 17 minute sell. DPAC general manager Bob Klauss is said "The DPAC staff and I will work hard to make sure we’re great hosts to the very lucky 2,700 fans who got tickets to this special show.”
So kudos to you lucky folks that secured tickets. A good night is coming your way. Check out Wilco's upcoming tour dates here.
