Fans Line the Hallways of The Adams Center for Tickets to Pearl Jam’s Missoula Show

At 3 p.m. many Missoula Pearl Jam fans got a little closer to seeing the beloved band when the lady with the numbers walked by and handed out numbered tickets to those that had been waiting most of the day. The ticket doesn’t guarantee a concert ticket, but it does ensure that no one else can cut in front of you in line – and lets you know that more than likely you will be getting able to purchase up to two tickets.

The line “officially” formed at 8 a.m. for fans interested in picking up some of the 1,100 tickets that Pearl Jam recently released for their Sept. 30 show, which had initially sold out in less than 15 minutes. Apparently, the band got the hint that fans were unhappy that locals were blocked out of buying tickets online during the first release.

Laurie Pope of Missoula made sure that she wouldn’t be disappointed this time, though. Pope was the first person in line for today’s sale. She said she got to The Adams Center at 5;30 a.m. today. However, Pope is a pro at these things. This will be her seventh time seeing Pearl Jam, and her third time camping out in line waiting for tickets for the band.

Pope wasn’t alone for long. She said she was joined by other dedicated fans shortly after she arrived. At 7:45 a.m. the staff at The Adams Center opened the doors for the 50 or so people that were waiting outside.

By about 2 p.m., the line had grown to nearly 200 people.

It is unclear at this time (3:30 p.m.) if the limit of 550 people has been reached, but it is definitely getting close. The biggest surprise to many in the line is that the threshold wasn’t reached much, much earlier.

Fans are passing the time in a plethora of ways including sleeping, playing cribbage, eating, working and, of course, making new friends.
