The line goes all the way down the street and around the corner to the next block, according to The Today Show.
The tickets for the show are first come, first served and people were willing to sleep on concrete all night to get their hands on the cheap tickets.

When 1000 theatre fans were in line at 9am people were turned away to avoid waiting for a ticket as only 2000 were available.
