WRIGLEYVILLE — Time to hit up second-hand sellers, Pearl Jam fans. 

The band's concert at Wrigley Field sold out faster than any other concert in the venue's history on Saturday, according to Cubs spokesman Julian Green. Last Wednesday's neighbor pre-sale tickets ran out in 45 minutes.

On Monday morning, StubHub showed tickets from $250 to $1100, and Craigslist advertised for tickets up to $400. Originally, tickets cost $52-$77.

Sometimes Wrigley Field concerts will add another show if popular, but Green said Eddie Vedder et. al will not be playing a second date. Country singer Jason Aldean is playing with pop singer Kelly Clarkson the Saturday after Pearl Jam, so the field is already booked.

Pearl Jam will be performing on Friday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m.
