Hundreds of fans line up for Lil Wayne concert tickets in Houston

HOUSTON – It was a wild sight Monday afternoon as hundreds of fans lined up outside a Sprint store in southwest Houston in hopes of getting free Lil Wayne concert tickets.

Sky 2 was live over the large crowd that looped around the shopping center on Bissonnet and Buffalo Speedway.

Many fans were disappointed once it was announced that tickets were all gone. Several Houston police officers were standing by in case things got out of hand. People still stood around hours after being told to leave in hopes more tickets would become available.
