With less than 300 tickets remaining, Friday night's Joe Nichols concert will be a sell out for the Antelope County Fair.
"People can come to the fair office in front of the grand stands for tickets - right now anyway," fair board president Tim Good said mid-afternoon on Thursday. "There is no doubt - this concert will be a sell out."
Nichols, who is spending the third straight week at the top of the charts with "Yeah" and is enjoying his second straight number one after "Sunny & 75," will perform in Neligh at 8 p.m. Thursday.
Good and other board members collected tickets throughout the day Thursday to pool all remaining tickets to the fair office. That's if any tickets remained, but few locations had tickets even then.
The Antelope County News does not have any tickets left for the concert but still has tickets for the other events - The Rude Band, Demo Derby and Tractor Pull. All of those tickets are $7 each.
Good said the concert will sell out with 3,250 in attendance.
