Beyoncé’s The Mrs Carter Show UK tour completely sold out after a frenzied attempt ensured all tickets were gone within 10 minutes. That’s why they call her Queen Bey!
Up to one million fans battled it out for tickets to just 11 shows with most of the tickets already snapped-up during the tour's presale.
The pre-sale run for Beyoncé’s 11-date tour, includes dates at London’s O2, the Manchester Arena and Birmingham’s LG arena.
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.”
There were five extra dates added to the Mrs Carter Show earlier this week, which starts in London and finishes up in Manchester.
A spokesperson for Searwave said, “Based on the level of demand for pre-sale tickets to see Beyoncé, we expect an unprecedented number of fans to seek tickets to her tour over the weekend – perhaps numbering up to a million.”
Beyoncé kicks-off the UK and Ireland tour in Birmingham on 26th April, with five shows at London's O2 Arena, three shows at Manchester's Arena and two nights at Birmingham's LG Arena and Dublin's O2 confirmed.
Fans took to Twitter to release some frustration after attempts to purchase tickets.
Some fans tweeted,
"Aye well done @Ticketmaster crashing before you even get through to the #beyonce ticket page!"
"Miracle, 34 minutes to tell me there are no more tickets sort yourself out #ticketmaster #beyonce"
One outraged fan said, "Can’t believe I couldn’t get #Beyonce tickets, gutted! An now there on eBay for 400 each #fuming."
"Surprise surprise, didn’t get Beyoncé tickets. Yet the robbing bas***ds on eBay do. #sortitout #beyonce."
