Eddie Vedder concert sells out in 27 minutes; Ruth Eckerd Hall adds second show on May 11
If you've spent the morning sweating the logjam for tickets to Eddie Vedder's concert on May 10 at Ruth Eckerd Hall, good news: The venue is going to make it a little easier for you to get in.
Due to what the venue calls "unprecedented" demand -- the concert sold out in 27 minutes, which nears the record recently set by Paul Simon -- the Pearl Jam frontman has added a second show on Friday, May 11. That show is also at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still a pretty pricey $81, but that hasn't seemed to slow ticket demand, which Ruth Eckerd Hall says has been "overwhelming."
