EUGENE, Ore. -- It took only 25 minutes Monday for the University of Oregon to sell about 3,000 general public tickets to the Dalai Lama's May 10 lecture at Matt Knight Arena.

UO spokesman Phil Weiler says that's comparable to how quickly tickets sold for a 2011 Elton John performance.

The Register-Guard reports that close to 11,000 people will attend the Dalai Lama's first appearance in Eugene.

About 3,000 tickets went to UO students last week and others go to faculty and staff and to the event co-sponsor, the Eugene Sakya Center.
