Beyoncé Runs The World: UK Tour Sells Out In 12 Minutes, Crashes Ticketmaster

Beyoncé’s non-stop publicity blitz has paid off. Tickets for the UK leg of her upcoming world tour sold out 12 minutes after going on sale at 9:30 am this morning, February 23.

General tickets for the singer’s 2013 “The Mrs Carter Show” tour sold out at breakneck speed leaving many fans disappointed and furious.

NME quotes @missellengaga on Twitter who wrote:

“This beyonce ticket lark has been bloody ridiculous, too many tickets were given for presale so next to none for general sale, yup fair.”

Another fan @CathyBarker wittily used a Beyoncé song title to express her frustration, writing, “The best thing I never had #beyoncetickets.”

Meanwhile, @eva_nora said, “If you’re booking #beyoncetickets I feel bad for you son… I got 99 problems but tickets ain’t one.”

British comedienne @KatieWeasel joked, “Haven’t seen this big a rush for tickets since Steve Brookstein’s tour of Costa Coffee shops #beyoncetickets.”

A sentiment echoed by @sophiekinloch who raged, “I’m watching about 100 sellers on Ebay to nab their bloody Beyonce tickets…”
