2012-12-12 11:51
Cape Town - More than 50 000 tickets for Justin Bieber's Cape Town performance in May 2013 were sold in less than an hour on Tuesday, reports IOL.

According to the article, Computicket's upgraded online purchasing system made the record-breaking sales possible.

The new system can reportedly process 6 000 online transactions each minute.

Justin Bieber himself took to Twitter to rejoice at the news:

Due to a higher demand than anticipated, Big Concerts made 1 000 extra tickets available for the Cape Town show and more than 6 000 extra tickets were allocated for Johannesburg fans.

However, many fans were left heartbroken when they were not being able to secure a Golden Circle ticket, as those tickets for both venues sold out in mere minutes online.

Tickets were also available for purchase on the Big Concerts website as well as at Computicket outlets.

Justin Bieber will perform in South Africa at the Cape Town Stadium on 8 May 2013 and at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 12 May 2013. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
