Dierks Bentley benefit concert sells out within minutes

News Editor

The Dierks Bentley Country Cares concert to benefit families of the 19 fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots sold out its more than 6,000 tickets within minutes of the sales opening on Friday.

The concert takes place July 22 at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley.

Tim's Toyota Center General Manager Gary Spiker said the box office had to turn people away after 15 minutes - some of whom had been standing in line since 7 a.m. for the 10 a.m. start to ticket sales. Spiker said they took names of those turned away in case tickets became available.

"People were shut out (online) after just seven or eight minutes. Some people put six tickets in their cart, but would buy only four, so those seats would pop up later," he explained.

Spiker said all of the suites also sold, at $1,000 each plus ticket costs.

"We're hoping to raise anywhere from $175,000 to $200,000 for the families," he said, adding, "Isn't that unreal?"

"Country fans are the best, and when their friends need help, they show up," said Bentley, in a press release. "This is my hometown, and I feel a huge pull to go back and be there with them and do what I can to help."
