PHOENIX — If you were hoping to see “Hamilton” at Arizona State University’s Gammage Auditorium, we have some bad news: Single-show tickets sold out within hours.

The tickets went on sale Monday at 9 a.m. By 1:30 p.m., they were all gone — including some that went for nearly $500.

They were sold through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan Program.

But not all hope was lost. Gammage said more tickets may be made available as the engagement gets closer. Fans were asked to sign up for updates on the auditorium’s website.

Gammage will also hold a lottery for 40 orchestra seats for each performance. Those tickets will be just $10. More details were expected to be announced as the show’s opening day, Jan. 30, approached.

Tickets also started popping up on third-party dealer websites. Prices on StubHub, one of the most popular ticket resell sites, started about $260 and went as high as $480 as of Monday afternoon.

Another reseller, Vivid Seats, had tickets starting about $240.

Season tickets for the theater’s upcoming Broadway season sold out in just two hours in May. It was the first time Gammage sold out its annual Broadway season ticket packages.

There will be 32 performances of “Hamilton” at the theater between Jan. 30 and Feb. 25, 2018. It will be the first time the show is performed on a college campus.

The brainchild of Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Hamilton” opened on Broadway in 2015 to rave reviews.

It tells the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who was instrumental during the Revolutionary War and later became the nation’s first Treasury secretary.

However, instead of traditional Broadway singing, “Hamilton” uses hip-hop to move the story along. The show won 11 Tony awards.
