Like with yesterday's announcement that, upon the completion of production details, more tickets were being released to the upcoming U2 show at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, today comes news that--again, upon the completion of "production details," whatever those are--more tickets are being released to Paul McCartney's Wednesday, August 19, gig at the spaceship.

Unlike with yesterday's U2 announcement, though, today's comes with explanation: "overwhelming demand." Well, hell, I should hope so.

The new tickets, which will be available at all price ranges originally set for the gig, will be released for sale to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster outlets and through Live Nation.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
