    If tickets go on sale Tuesday morning, how is it that the show was sold out 2 days ago? I read in the Herald Dispatch the same date of sale, so I think the Paramount should explain this to the public. I was very upset to log on and find out it was already sold out. A second show has been scheduled for the next night, and tickets are already availble for purchase. Had I not randomly looked at the PAC website, I would have missed out on the second show as well.
