Tickets to the Pearl Jam concert at Chicago's Wrigley Field in July sold out in hours Saturday, according to Live Nation, setting a new record.

The tickets for the July 19 show went on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday for the general and were all gone by approximately 11:30 a.m.

Live Nation says it was the fastest concert sellout for Wrigley Field in history.

Wrigleyville residents got to buy tickets earlier in the week.
