EUGENE, Ore. -- Garth Brooks has just set the record for the largest paid attendance at Autzen Stadium in Eugene. The June 29 concert is now sold out.

The 60,000 tickets sold in less than two hours on Friday morning.

Students at the University of Oregon were filled with excitement and nerves before securing their tickets.

"I'm a little worried just because I know Autzen hasn't had a lot of concerts before, and if Autzen does have concerts, it's usually big ones, so they'll sell out pretty fast," student Mitchell Riberal said.

Some of them set alarms for 9 a.m. so they would get first dibs in the waiting room on Ticketmaster before the tickets became available at 10 a.m.

However, others waited until the last minute.

Fans were also getting tickets by calling or using the Ticketmaster app.

Many students told KEZI 9 News that having the concert in Autzen Stadium instead of Matthew Knight Arena makes all the difference.

"Autzen holds a lot more than Matt Knight and it's outside, so I think a lot of people will want to do that instead of being crammed into an arena," Riberal said. 

Some students said they hope the success of this concert encourages the university to hold more concerts there in the future.

The concert will be the first time ever that Brooks headlines a show in Eugene and his first time returning to Oregon in over four years.
