Chesney fans amped: Target Field show sells out in 30 minutes

You snooze, you lose when it comes to No Shoes.

Country superstar Kenny Chesney's show at Target Field next summer sold out in 30 minutes on Friday morning, the Twins reported.

Disappointed fans may have another shot as limited seats may be released by the promoter for public sale, the team says.

Chesney and Tim McGraw earlier this year hosted the only concert thus far at the baseball venue, and the team reported it was a huge success. So the team and the crooner are planning to bring Chesney's No Shoes Nation stadium tour to Target Field on July 12.

"We expect this to be another great concert at Target Field, a place on its way to becoming the best outdoor music venue in the region,” Twins President Dave St. Peter said.

Tickets were $40 to $272.
