It may be the weekend, but sleeping late is not an option for many people in Tulsa. There are Hanson tickets to be bought.

The hometown boys' upcoming concert on July 27th has fans giggling, screaming and singing Hanson.

Although camping out was said to be a no-no, some fans arrived at 10 Friday night to wait in line for tickets.

"I know we're going to get tickets, you just have to have faith," says Hanson fan Jessica Crosby.

Although some spent the night on downtown Tulsa's sidewalks, that didn't guarantee a ticket.

At nine Saturday morning, everyone in line drew ticket stubs and the top five hundred lined up to buy.

Lindsey Larremore was the lucky one. She didn't get here until 5 in the morning, and she got first choice.

“I don't know what to say this is not my luck," says Larremore.

The July 27-th concert is unusual for the Performing Arts Center where musicals and symphonies are the usual.

"I've worked here three years and I've never seen anything like this before," says a PAC security guard.

Fans have gone all out to show their support.

There's homemade buttons for fans to wear, Hanson fingernail decorations and even tattoos.

And some have messages for members of the trio.

"I just want to tell Taylor that I love him more than anything we're going to get married, he just doesn't know it yet,” says Hanson fan Crystal Lambert.

Some fans say they aren't looking any proposals at the concert, just a good time.

Daniel Hall says he just hopes there's not as much screaming as there was at the last concert.

"I think my eardrums are still recovering," says Hall.

When the ticket office closed at three o-clock this afternoon there were still a couple dozen tickets left to be sold, although none of the seats left are together.

Tonight at ten, we'll tell you how there could be tickets still available when several fans walked away from the P-A-C today empty handed.
