The Rolling Stones sold out their November 25th and 29th shows at London's O2 Arena in just seven minutes, according to multiple reports. Fans apparently snapped up the arena's least expensive seats, priced around $152, in just three minutes, while the priciest seats at around $601 were gone a few minutes later.
The high traffic caused Ticketmaster to crash before the tickets had sold out. A holding page read, "We're experiencing high demand. You will be automatically directed to the page requested as soon as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience." Resale websites are already listing tickets for as much as $20,050.
Presale for the December 13th and 15th shows at Newark's Prudential Center will start tomorrow at noon EST, with a general on-sale following on October 26th. For more information, visit the Rolling Stones' website.
