Not long after they went on sale Saturday morning, tickets to Pearl Jam’s concert at Wrigley Field this summer sold out. The band says it was the fastest concert sell-out in the history of Wrigley Field concerts.

Tickets to the July 19 show went on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. In a Tweet Saturday morning, Pearl Jam said, “Thank you for making ‘An evening with @Pearl Jam’ the fastest concert sell-out in Wrigley Field history!”

By about 11 a.m., tickets to the show could be found for between $50 and $360 apiece on craigslist, and from about $270 to more than $1,000 on StubHub.
