Beyoncé UK tour sells out in 12 minutes
Fans take to Twitter to vent their frustration as briefs appear on ebay
General sale tickets for the singer's 2013 'The Mrs Carter Show' tour, which calls at Birmingham, London and Manchester, sold out at lightning speed leaving many fans frustrated.
@missellengaga wrote on Twitter: "This beyonce ticket lark has been bloody ridiculous, too many tickets were given for presale so next to none for general sale, yup fair."
Lucy Townsend wrote: "If anyone has Beyonce tickets just die now I hate you and I hate her and I hate Ticketmaster."
Ticketmaster UK crashed as thousands of fans bombarded the website hoping to snap up briefs for the 'Run The World' singer's tour. Shortly after going on sale, Ticketmaster UK posted:
We’re really sorry, demand was massive and we’ve sold out of our allocation. @beyonce is the most popular solo artist in the world!— TicketmasterUK (@TicketmasterUK) February 23, 2013
Meanwhile, tickets for 'The Miss Carter Show' tour have already been listed on auction site ebay. A single ticket for the singer's MEN show is fetching up to £600. "All you bellends who bought #beyonce tickets and sell them on ebay for £500 are DICKHEADS. Thanks for ruining a lot of people's chances," commented fan Lucy Glassbrook.
