MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Australians apparently can’t get enough of Madonna.
More than 52,000 tickets for the American singer’s opening Melbourne concert were sold out today in just 80 minutes, prompting promoters to immediately schedule a second show.
Madonna will appear at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Nov. 26 and 27.
The Frontier Touring Co., which is promoting Madonna’s “Girlie Tour” Down Under, said the ticket sales were the fastest-ever for a rock show in Australia.
Tickets were priced from $ 44.50 to $ 142.
