Take Thats The Circus becomes fastest selling tour in UK historyNovember 1st, 2008 - 2:42 pm ICT by ANI
London, November 1 (ANI): Take That has made a record sell-out with its 600,000 tour tickets vanishing in just four-and-a-half hours.
Becoming the fastest selling tour in UK history, the bands 2009 stadium tour, The Circus, has managed to displace Michael Jacksons record sales of Bad tour tickets in 1987, reports the Daily Star.
The tour tickets, which were put on sale at 9 am, were all sold by 1.30 pm despite the added announcement of two extra shows at Wembley and Manchester.
While many fans queued themselves in the cold to make sure they would see their favourite group perform, others crashed the Internet sites by flooding the cyberspace in want of the passes.
A statement from the band said: We are, once again, totally astounded by the response and amazed at being able to break such records.
We feel very privileged and promise to make it the best show weve ever done.
Take That had received four nominations at the 2008 BRIT Awards taking home the Best Live Act and Best British Single trophies last year. (ANI)
