Tickets for Alison Krauss at the Virginia Theatre sell out

CHAMPAIGN - It took less than an hour for tickets to Alison Krauss' upcoming Champaign concert to sell out.

Krauss, a Champaign native, will play Oct. 5 at the Virginia Theatre. Tickets went on sale to the general public at 10 this morning. By about 10:50, the Virginia's Twitter feed reported the concert sold out. The concert will benefit Crisis Nursery.

Crisis Nursery's Marketing and Development Director Kristen Bosch said she was happy to hear about the sellout.

"We're thrilled about the concert," Bosch said. "We got the news (that it would benefit Crisis Nursery) about two weeks ago and it's been a whirlwind ever since. It's going to be a great night for everybody."
