Brad Paisley concert at new arena sold out

The opening concert for the new Intrust Bank Arena featuring country star Brad Paisley has sold out, arena officials announced today.

Paisley will perform Saturday night with opening acts Miranda Lambert and Justin Moore.

He's the reigning male vocalist of the year as named by the Country Music Awards and the Academy of Country Music awards.

The arena has a capacity of 15,000 seats, but sightlines required for the Paisley concert allowed the sale of about 9,600 tickets, said arena spokeswoman Sarah Haertl.
