Beyonce’s NYC Concert Sells Out in 22 Seconds
New York City has seen its share of quick concert sellouts, with Prince among the artists whose shows had lightning-fast ticket sales.
You can add Beyonce to that esteemed list. All of the tickets for her Aug. 14 show at Manhattan’s Roseland Ballroom were scooped up just 22 seconds after they went on sale to the general public on Aug. 10.
Tickets for her other three Roseland shows — all part of “4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce,” during which she’ll perform her ‘4’ album from start to finish — were gone by the end of the day, too. Those concerts will take place Aug. 16, 18 and 19.
Beyonce’s ‘4’ is off to a really good start, chart-wise. It has already hit number one on the Billboard 200, and it remains in the top 10 six weeks after making its chart debut.
