Beyoncé Tour Sells Out In 10 Minutes
Fans go crazy for UK dates of The Mrs Carter Show...
Tickets for Beyoncé's UK tour dates have sold out in a staggering 10 minutes.
General tickets were released at 9.30am this morning for the UK leg of The Mrs Carter Show world tour, but you would've had to have been quick to snap them up.
At 9.42am, Ticketmaster posted on Twitter the disappointing news for fans who were still trying to get through via their phone lines or online.
The message said: "And we're out - All dates for @Beyonce now sold out. Very few tickets were made available for today's general sale after busy presales. (sic)"
Olympic swimmer Rebecca Addlington tweeted: "3 computers, refreshing like crazy but no beyonce tickets! Hope anyone else trying has had more success!"
An influx of fans also took to the social media site to share their disappointment and vent their anger over huge volumes of presales, and ticket resale prices.
Tickets have already been listed on eBay with some going for as much as £500.
A spokesperson for ticket marketplace Viagogo said: “Beyoncé selling out in seconds is no surprise, as her Superbowl performance proved she’s still got it and fans are desperate for a chance to see Queen B in the flesh.
"What’s more interesting is seeing how popular she is in comparison to her husband. We’ve seen a 312 per cent spike in searches for Jay Z tickets since his US tour was confirmed this afternoon and rumours of European dates are rife.
"If both Carters tour in the UK this summer it will be the ultimate battle of Mr and Mrs.”
Due to high demand during presales, more dates had been announced in Manchester, London and Birmingham yesterday.
The Mrs Carter Show World Tour kicks in Birmingham on 26 April.
