LIVE AID CONCERT SELLS OUT FAST : LIVE AID DATE SELLS OUT FAST IN PHILADELPHIA

<i> From Associated Press </i>

All 90,000 tickets for the July 13 Live Aid concert here have been sold, a spokeswoman for co-promoter Bill Graham said Thursday from San Francisco.

Fans reacted quickly Tuesday to the surprise announcement of the sale. By late afternoon, Ticketron Manager Jim Girgenti estimated there were 100 to 150 people at each Live Aid ticket outlet in the area.

The tickets cost $35 apiece, except for a small number of $50 seats with what Graham described as “better sightlines.”

Live Aid tickets were set to go on sale last week, but the date was moved back so promoters could prepare unreserved-seat tickets that would be harder to counterfeit.
