NEW YORK (AP) — Fans who couldn't get into the packed Mumford & Sons concert at the reopening of the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium can request a refund.

The West Side Tennis Club, which owns the venue, said Thursday it will offer refunds "to those of you who didn't have an optimal experience" at Wednesday's concert in Queens, N.Y.

The show was the first in more than 20 years at the 90-year-old stadium, where the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones once performed. Some concertgoers had trouble getting into the packed venue, and the statement said the stadium is dealing with "growing pains."

Tickets cost $74. The 16,000 seats are all general admission.

Fans can email info@frontgatetickets.com for refunds.
