Several hundred people were spotted waiting outside the Sprint store in the 3300 block of Westpark Drive as early as 4 a.m.

The long line is wrapped around the Kroger building.

Tickets were released at 11 a.m. and given on a first come, first served basis. But fans told ABC13 that the store stopped giving tickets out, because of "the fighting" and people pushing to the front of the store. Sprint has since shut down the store amid the crowded chaos.

Tidal announced on Twitter that those who were unable to secure their tickets at the Westpark Sprint store will receive an email of the new pickup point, which has yet to be revealed.
