Tickets for the April 28 Willie Nelson concertat the Brown County Music Center went on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m., and the tickets sold out in a mere four minutes. 

The Facebook group Brown County Matters was abuzz with comments about the speed at which they sold out and the high resale prices of remaining tickets available on Ticketmaster.

Brown County resident Cheryl Vaughan said that she was in the queue to purchase tickets for eight minutes and tried 60 times to get her hands on two.

“It says it’s available and then when I go in there they said sorry someone else got it,” she says of the buying process.

Regular priced tickets ranged from $50-$150 per ticket and resale tickets on Ticketmaster are listed for balcony seats at $173 and front row seats selling for as much as $1,000. 

Many Brown County residents say they feel left out when the big name acts at BCMC sell out so quickly and the only tickets available for purchase are too expensive for most people to afford.

“They’re all $175 and up and it goes up to $1,000 now,” Vaughan says.

WFIU reached out to current director of Brown County Music Center and did not receive a comment by the time of publication.
