WHQC Hosts 'Bieber Seat Search' For Tickets

Last week, CCM+E Top 40 WHQC (CHANNEL 96.1)/CHARLOTTE found themselves in the enviable position of holding several tickets to tonight's (1/22) JUSTIN BIEBER concert. The staff came up with a clever way to give fans a chance to win, by hiding three envelopes (each holding tickets and meet and greet passes) throughout the lower level of the TIME WARNER CABLE ARENA, where the show will be held. That's 6,000 seats, in case you're counting.
On FRIDAY (1/18), the doors to the arena were opened for the contest and in came dedicated "BELIEBERS" who proceeded to fan out and check underneath each of the seats until all of the envelopes were located. Friends and family held signs and cheered them on, while morning hosts ACE & TJ hosted the event. The duo probably should have steered clear of the aisles, as TJ joked afterward, "I almost got trampled! My job has become too dangerous." WHQC PD BOOMER said the event was "awesome," adding "We wanted to give BIEBER fans a fun and exciting way to get tickets into the show."
