As tickets for the planet's most hotly anticipated concerts go on sale on Friday, viagogo, the world's largest ticket marketplace, is predicting all 38,000 tickets to the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour in New York will sell out in under 5 minutes.
Such is the demand to see the legendary rockers, searches for their two dates at the Prudential Center (December 13 & 15) are currently outstripping searches on viagogo for World Series tickets by 25 to one, and the recorded demand for last year's Superbowl by five to one.
As well as the estimated one million Americans who are expected to try and buy tickets, Stones fans in the US will also face competition from the hundreds of thousands of British fans who missed out on tickets for the two London dates, which sold out in seven minutes. Fans from Europe have been flocking to viagogo to register interest in tickets to the New York dates, with over 300,000 Europeans – enough to sell out the entire World Series – searching for tickets to the New York shows in the past week.
Ed Parkinson, viagogo spokesperson said: "With a worldwide following and a very limited number of tickets available, The Rolling Stones are currently smashing the World Series and Superbowl in the demand stakes. "Competition for tickets is going to be incredible, but with the second date being recorded and televised on pay per view, it really will be a chance to be a part of history."
