McCartney sells out Target Field concert in 20 minutes


Target Field is out of "Out There" concert tickets – at least for now.

The Star Tribune says the remaining tickets to Paul McCartney's Minneapolis stop on his "Out There" tour Aug. 2 sold out within 20 minutes of going on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Monday.

Tickets to the concert were already on sale through special "pre-sale" arrangements for American Express cardholders, Twins season-ticket holders and McCartney's official website.

The Twins announced a week ago that McCartney would be playing Target Field. His appearance marks the third major concert at the venue, following Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw in 2011, and Chesney again last year.

Chesney's 2013 show drew 44,000 fans to Target Field, KARE 11 says.

Twins officials said fans who didn't get an opportunity to land one of the 36,000 tickets available for the McCartney show were re-directed to a special concert page on the Twins' website, in the event "a limited number of seats" become available from the promoter in the months before the show.

Prices for the tickets that were available for McCartney's Aug. 2 show ranged from $36.50 to $250.

Local fans who couldn't land tickets to the Target Field show will have more chances to see the former Beatle in the region. McCartney also has concerts scheduled for July 12 in Fargo, North Dakota, July 14 in Lincoln, Nebraska, and July 16 in Kansas City, Missouri.
