Madonna double-dates after sell-out
Madonna has announced a second date at London’s Earls Court after all the tickets for her August 18 concert went in a matter of minutes this morning.
The singer had attracted criticism over the prices of tickets, with seats starting at a pocket-money friendly £50 (plus booking fee) and rising as high as £150.
The August concert was due to be the only UK date on the singer’s re-Invention tour. But after punters snapped up the available tickets as soon as they went on sale at 9am today, a second show on the following night (August 19) was added.
However, at the time of writing, this was also a virtual sell-out with the only tickets available at the top end of the price range.
And, predictably, tickets are already being touted on internet auction sites with asking prices in the high hundreds of pounds.
