BOK changes ticket sales for newly-announced George Strait concert
Good news for George Strait fans. The country music legend is performing a second show in Tulsa.
This after tickets for his first show sold out within seconds of going on sale.
This time around, officials at the BOK Center said things are going to be different when it comes to ticket sales, including limiting the number of tickets you can buy to four per person, not allowing a vendor pre-sale on tickets and offering early ticket sales to American Express cardholders.
It's good news to people in Tulsa, especially those who work in the music industry. Working as assistant program director and on-air DJ for radio station KVOO, Kristy Carlyle knows just how much people love their George Strait in Tulsa.
"He's the biggest artist in our format," said Carlyle. "There isn't anybody above him as far as the kind of music that they like."
As many recently found out, getting your hands on tickets isn't easy.
"It was impossible to get them," said Carlyle. "I had people here tell me they were on exactly when they went on sale, and seconds later, they were all gone."
Carlyle said the new rules should help.
"Hopefully, more people will be able to get in. I'm sure there's still going to be some disapointment, because he's in such high demand," said Carlyle.
Carlyle said there likely won't be many more George Strait concerts in the future, if any.
"So if you miss it here, you pretty much miss him, live," said Carlyle.
The second concert is scheduled for June 1.
Tickets go on sale Friday, but American Express Card holders can purchase tickets starting Wednesday.
