U2 break Computicket record

U2’s ticket sales have broken ticketing agency Computicket’s record for the number one selling show in South Africa.

Sales for the 22-time Grammy award-winning band, who are expected to perform their 360 Degrees tour on February 13 in Johannesburg and on February 18 in Cape Town, started at the weekend.

By yesterday, they managed to sell 114000 tickets.

Concert promoters Big Concerts’ financial officer, Justin van Wyk, said: “U2’s ticket sales smashed the record that UK singer Robbie Williams held at 98000 from November 2005.”

“This is the biggest event since the Fifa World Cup to happen in our country,” he said. – The Times, Avusa Group News
