The remaining tickets for Paul McCartney’s summer concert at Target Field sold out Monday morning within 20 minutes of being made available to the general public.
Before the tickets for the former Beatle’s Aug. 2 “Out There” tour stop went on sale online to one and all at prices ranging from $36.50 to $250, there were three “presale” opportunities last week: for American Express cardholders, Minnesota Twins season-ticket holders and another through paulmccartney.com.
Fans who failed to get their mitts on the 36,000 or so available tickets are being directed to www.twinsbaseball.com/mccartney in case “a limited number of seats” are released by the promoter in the coming months, Twins officials said.
The baseball team operates Target Field, but it was the promoter who controlled the inventory of tickets for various sales stages, said Twins spokesman Chris Iles.
McCartney is taking a swing through the Midwest that week. He also announced dates July 12 in Fargo (at the Fargodome), July 14 in Lincoln, Neb., and July 16 in Kansas City.
