After days of planning the perfect strategy to get what was left of the precious Paul McCartney tickets, hopefuls tested their luck to get a spot at the United Spirit Arena. Cindy Walden and Johnny Cruz were two of those people.

"This is going to be like a dream come true. I don't care where the ticket is, if it's just one ticket by itself, how much it costs. I want a ticket," she said.

"They're right here. Phew," said Cruz. "I'm going to the show."

Cruz and others' dreams were made, but for others, they were shattered. Kenneth Henson did not get his.

"I am upset. They system is not working," he said.

Cathleen Gilbreth was turned down after waiting for four hours. But she was not the only one gambling with lengthy lines. Miranda Esparza-Garza, Danny Hancock and Preston Wickersham waited at Ralph's Records.

"Since 5:30 yesterday," explained Esparza-Garza.

"I've been here almost four hours," Hancock said.

"As soon as 10:00 rolls around I'm either going to give Select-a-Seat a call, see if I can get it that way," Wiskersham said. "Or pull up the online while I'm trying to get to the front and see which one works out first."

The lucky fans did not hold back shelling out the cash. To those few and true fans, it was worth it. Especially for Gilbreth, who was called back and ended up getting a seat after spare tickets became available. Lisa Thomason is the box office manager for Select-a-Seat.

"Everything went really quickly, we are completely sold out," she said.

"I never dreamed that I'd get to see one of the actual Beatles live, in Lubbock, Texas of all places. Woo hoo," Walden said.

Thomason warns those of you who will be looking for tickets elsewhere to be cautious of who you purchase them from.

Sell those tickets and open a college fund, or send it to a needy family.
