Bryan Adams sold out

Hundreds braved the cold for a chance to see Bryan Adams Feb. 25, yet many were turned away as the event sold out in less than an hour



Hundreds braved the cold for a chance to see Bryan Adams Feb. 25, yet many were turned away as the event sold out in less than an hour.

Standing outside in the blowing snow, Sue Maitland said she would love to see Adams at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre.

“I debated on whether to sit at home and try,” said Maitland, who decided her best bet was to try in person. “To see him in a small venue like this would be awesome.”

And according to many, the system had crashed as soon as sales opened at 10 a.m.

Unfortunately, before 11, ticket sellers announced that the event had been sold out – turning many disappointed fans away.

But Maitland held out with the remaining small crowd with the hopes that any online holds might be released or to at least get her name on the waiting list.
