Tickets for Bruce Springsteen's concert in February at the First Niagara Center sold out Friday around noon, according to 97Rock.

Tickets went on sale Friday at 10 a.m., which had some fans waiting in line since 6 a.m. Some tickets for "The Boss" went on sale prior to Friday.

According to New York's Attorney General some tickets popping up on StubHub, TicketNetwork and others didn't exists. Ticket scalpers were trying to sell Springsteen tickets for thousands of dollars, which now has lawmakers pushing for change. A full report can be found here.

Fans are also still debating the voucher system at First Niagara. Some are for it and some aren't.

The lucky fan whose number was selected by the voucher system got to be the first person in line Friday morning.

"It's like winning the lottery. I usually don't win anything but they called my number," said Vicki Warhol. "Right now I think t's really fair. We were complaining in line earlier but right now I think it's a good system."

Tim Marsh, another Springsteen fan, doesn't agree with Warhol.

"It doesn't seem like it's a fair system for everybody," said Marsh. "I guess everyone had the opportunity to come down and get one but they're limited."

Only the first 100 fans are able to get a voucher.
