U2 Shows Sell Out In 90 Minutes

 

Updated : Mar 23, 2009

All 190,000 tickets of U2’s two concerts at Croke Park sold out on Friday morning in under two hours.

Pairs of tickets were gone within 51 minutes of going on sale at 8am, single tickets by 9.30am and the sold-out sign on the Ticketmaster website was displayed by 10am.

Given U2’s reputation as a live act, sell-outs for the U2360 concerts on Friday, July 24th, and Saturday, July 25th, were seen as dead certs, but it still came as a relief to lead singer Bono.

“As my friend Gavin Friday says, ‘insecurity is your best security’,” he told RTÉ Radio 2FM’s Gerry Ryan Show on Friday. “That’s just the way we are. We don’t take anything for granted. The album went to No 1 in 31 countries. We had a big celebration. Then we discovered it had not gone to No 1 in Finland and we were depressed. That’s the kind of band we are,” he said, speaking from the Moroccan city of Fez where the band are on a video shoot for their new single Magnificent .

With Croke Park apparently having planning permission for a third concert and the two current dates selling out so quickly, a third concert date on Monday, July 27th, is now increasingly possible.

VeryHappyPig slept it in on Friday so fingers crossed for a third show!
