Newman tickets sell out within an hour
11:43am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
A concert, by rising pop star John Newman, sold out within an hour of tickets going on sale.
Settle-born John will start his nationwide tour with a “dress rehearsal” event at the town’s Victoria Hall on Thursday, October 3.
Tickets went on sale at 9.30am this morning - and, by 10.30am, all 232 had been sold, mostly to local buyers.
“We knew they were going to be popular, but didn’t expect them to sell out quite so quickly,” said hall manager Ann Harding.
John was the “toast of the town” last summer when he was the featured singer on Rudimental’s song Feel the Love, which made it all the way to number one in the UK Singles Chart.
