PROVO — Reba's a hot ticket.
Tickets to this year's Stadium of Fire — headlined by country music legend Reba McEntire — are expected to sell out shortly after they go on sale Saturday.
"We've just had a lot of calls — more than ever before — and people wanting to buy blocks of seats for 20, 50 or 70 people," said Carl Bacon, chief organizer of America's Freedom Festival at Provo, which organizes the concert-and-fireworks show.
The strength of the talent lineup is being credited for the unprecedented interest. The July 3 show is part of McEntire's first tour in three years.
"She's like the Madonna of country music. There is nothing better than Reba," said fan DeAnne Mackey. "People love her, and they will pay to see her."
Tickets go on sale Saturday at 8 a.m. at the BYU Marriott Center ticket office and will be available during regular weekday hours Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tickets can also be purchased by calling the ticket office at 378-BYU1 or toll-free at 1-800-322-BYU1, online at www.byutickets. com or at Smith'sTix.
Tickets are $20, $30 and $45, with premium seats in front of the stage for $100 and $250.
