NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- The day Luke Bryan fans have been waiting for is finally here. The country star takes the grandstand stage Thursday night.
Many fans said they woke up early on the day tickets went on sale to get the best seats. It was supposed to be a sold out show. On Thursday, the fair announced Luke Bryan wanted to make more seats available for fans, so he took down the cross-shaped stage, which amounts to several hundred more seats.
The extra tickets were on sale starting at 3 p.m. and sold out quickly.
Current ticket holders say they are excited for the concert, but some aren't happy about the seats that have been opened.
"I went up to trade my ticket to see if they would upgrade them. I was told no, I could only repurchase them and sell my tickets. I've been at the fair all day. There's no chance of me selling the tickets I have," Baldwinsville resident Carol Searle said.
"My wife got up two hours before the tickets went on sale and those were the best tickets available in the grandstand. Now they got seats right up front. Like I said, hopefully we can sell the ones up top," one person said.
