While organizers told officials only 50,000 people would show up, they sold 186,000 tickets which were advertised as $18 in advance and $24 at the gate. But more than 400,000 people showed up. However, there wasn't enough fencing or ticket booths to handle such a crowd, so most people just crashed the venue for free.
