Billboard reported that 70,000 tickets were available to the general public and the tickets sold out within 18 minutes. Tickets included admission to the awards and the ACM Party for a Cause. Both events will be taking place in Arlington, Texas.
Academy of Country Music CEO, Bob Romeo, released a statement following the impressive turnout and demand for tickets to these events and next year's award show. "This sale was unprecedented and far exceeded our expectations. We’re working hard to plan more events to accommodate as many fans as we can. Country music is alive and well in North Texas!”
