WRIGLEYVILLE — Sorry, Wrigley neighbors: Pearl Jam pre-sale tickets reserved for neighbors sold out in less than an hour Wednesday morning. 

Tickets for the group's July concert at Wrigley Field went on pre-sale for Wrigleyville residents only at 10 a.m. but sold out in 45 minutes, team officials said, forcing local fans of the band to wait until the weekend to buy.

Wrigleyville residents who signed up for the Cubs' community newsletter received unique passwords to buy tickets for the concert ahead of the general public. Tickets cost $52-$77 and were limited to six per household.

Lakeview neighbor Dyana Flanigan said on Twitter that she tried to buy tickets right at 10 a.m. and there were already none available. 

Neighbors who still want to see the band can refresh the website this weekend with the public-at-large, who will have to clamor for the rest of the tickets beginning at 10 a.m on Saturday.

Julian Green, Cubs spokesman, said he did not know how many tickets still remained after the pre-sale. 

Any lucky Wrigleyville entreprenuers looking to resell Pearl Jam pre-sale tickets, beware — the Cubs say resold tickets from neighbor pre-sales will result in a cancelled order.

"An Evening with Pearl Jam" will not have an opener, meaning Eddie Vedder et. al will be first up on Friday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m.
