U2 sell out Dublin's Croke Park in six minutes for Joshua Tree tour - rumours second date ruled out
U2's Joshua Tree anniversary tour sold out in just under six minutes - however reports the band could announce a second date have been dismissed.
Tickets for the July 22 Croke Park gig went on sale from 9am on Monday.
It was expected that U2 will announce a second date for the Irish leg of their tour later on Monday. This was later ruled out.
Thousands of fans were left annoyed when they waited patiently online on the Ticketmaster site at 9am to book tickets, but did not manage to get any.
Many swarmed to social media to vent their disappointment.
The online tickets were snapped up immediately, and there were long queues outside retail outlets selling tickets too.
Minutes later, however, a message popped up on the Ticketmaster site telling them its reselling company, SeatWave, had tickets for sale.
A number of U2 tickets became available on official and black market websites last week after diehard fans with access to pre-sale tickets chose to sell them on for a profit.
maybe I'll be luckier second time round... https://t.co/2mDFg409yX— Jayne McCormack (@JayneMcCormack) January 16, 2017
