The Allman Brothers Band’s April 23 concert at the Macon City Auditorium sold out Saturday in three minutes, according to Macon Centreplex box office manager David Smith.
Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. About 50 people lined up at the Centreplex box office Saturday morning, Smith said. Four or five of them had camped out.
Most of the tickets were sold over the phone or on the Internet.
The auditorium seats 2,550 for a concert, but only 1,600 tickets were available to the general public.
Smith said the remainder were reserved for the band and for the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House, which opened on Vineville Avenue in December.
Allman Brothers Band Museum curator E.J. Devokaitis said the museum is working on plans for an event to coincide with the concert.
He said some of the museum’s tickets might be available to the general public after the museum takes care of its volunteers.
