If you’re looking to get tickets to see "Lady Antebellum" perform at the 164th Muskingum County Fair, you are out of luck.

Tickets went on sale this Saturday at nine a.m. and the four thousand seats were sold-out in about 15 minutes.

"93% of the tickets purchased were within 50 miles, " says Muskingum County Agricultural Society President, Darrel Cubbison.

Of that 93 percent, Cubbison says 63 percent of the people who bought tickets live within 15 miles.

If you still want a chance to listen to the band, Cubbison says the fair board is trying to make arrangements to people to sit on the nearby hill, or you can listen just by walking around the fairgrounds.

"This hot group, my good golly, they are fantastic. We are so excited within about 90 days to have them here on this stage, only it’s going to be in front of the Grand Stands for an exciting evening of music and those young people with their talent, " says Cubbison.

"Lady Antebellum" is set to perform August 20th at eight p.m.
