140,000 Tickets in 20 minutes

Were we really surprised that there was such a demand for Prince tickets that it caused the website to crash- not really. The man is incredible. "Prince caused an internet booking site to crash after it took just 20 minutes for more than 140,000 tickets to be snapped up by fans. Within an hour, many fans were selling the £31.21 priced tickets, capped by Prince himself, at five times the asking price on Ebay. Organisers immediately added a further eight concerts at the arena, which are expected to sell out just as quickly." (via NME)
