40,000 tickets for the star's Dublin gig are snapped up in hours...

Robbie Williams has again smashed box office records in IRELAND, with tickets for his gig at LANSDOWNE ROAD stadium in DUBLIN virtually selling out within hours.

The mighty Robster‘s fans snapped up 40,000 tickets for the show on July 6 so quickly when they went on sale that another date was added almost immediately. He will now play a second night, on July 7. Tickets for this show go on sale this Thursday (October 19) at 8am.

He has previously snatched the title as the fastest-selling act in Slane Castle‘s 20-year history, with all 80,000 tickets vanishing in three weeks.
