Spice Girls gig sells out in less than a minute

Fans snap up tickets in 38 seconds

The Spice Girls comeback gig has sold out in 38 seconds, after fans who registered for tickets online were notified they had gone on sale.

More than one million people in the UK pre-registered for the concert, which takes place on December 15 at the O2 Arena.

Ticketmaster boss Chris Edmonds said: “It was a dramatic moment – the sales went live and there was a huge surge as fans bombarded the lines.”

Two more dates – December 16 and 18 – have been added to the tour.

Tickets for these two dates are currently being sold to fans who originally registered for them back in June.

The full line-up of the band has not performed on stage since Geri Halliwell quit in May 1998, reports BBC News.
