Sting fans are early risers.

Both the June 7 and June 8 show at Ravinia Festival have sold out, as have the two-night engagement (July 2 and July 3) of Matchbox 20 and Goo Goo Dolls. Matchbox Twenty credit Randall Slavin (10.29.12) HIGH RES.JPG

Amy Schrage, associate director of public relations, suggests buying lawn tickets for Josh Groban (Aug. 10) and Sheryl Crow (July 19) as those two shows are close to selling out. The pavillon seats are already snapped up.

"Sheryl Crow is the quintessential summer artist," Schrage said. "She's perfect to see on a summer night out."

At 9:30 a.m., the wait time for Darius Rucker's gig was 13 minutes. As of 10:50 a.m., those in search tickets for the country singer's show can buy tickets, both pavillon and lawn, directly.

Update: As of 2:40 p.m., the following Ravinia shows were sold-out or close to it.

Sold out
Sting (both nights)
Matchbox Twenty/Goo Goo Dolls (both nights)
