Sheffield sees unprecedented turn out for Kasabian tickets
Fans in Sheffield turned out in unprecedented numbers to get their hands on Kasabian tickets, which went on sale on Friday (May 6th).
The band play the city's O2 Academy as part of a mini UK tour to warm up for a number of festival gigs this summer.
According to the Sheffield Telegraph, Kasabian tickets sold out in just nine minutes, making them one of the fastest-selling ever bands at the venue.
Many fans camped outside the venue the night before in order to be first in line for tickets.
Sheffield O2 Academy marketing co-ordinator Nicole Jewitt said: "I've never known a band sell out as quickly as this.
"We feel for those who didn't manage to get a ticket but we did warn people to expect this one to sell out fast. Kasabian play arenas and this is an intimate gig as a warm-up to their festival appearances. We're delighted to have the show here."
Kasabian play Sheffield on June 4th, with gigs also scheduled for Leeds, Wolverhampton and Manchester.
