Justin Bieber believers, if you had plans to see the tween-leaning pop star's Omaha concert, it's going to be tough to land a ticket if you don't have one already.
Friday morning, thousands of tickets to Bieber's July 6 concert at CenturyLink Center Omaha were sold out within 45 minutes.
About 200 people lined up at the arena to buy tickets via a lottery system to see the singer of songs such as “Baby” and “Boyfriend.” All but a few left with tickets. Several people at the end of the line weren't so fortunate.
For those that don't know, Bieber is the latest in a line of pop stars popular with tweens (as well as some older and some younger) that has included the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus.
Bieber's last concert in Omaha was in 2010. Even though more than 13,000 tickets were sold, the arena was left with many empty seats.
This time around, the arena will be packed. The Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority, which runs the arena, would not release the exact amount of tickets sold, but the venue can potentially fit more than 15,000 people for a concert.
