Lady GaGa’s UK Tour Sells Out…In 5 Minutes

Published: Saturday 8th Feb 2014 by Sam

Lady GaGa‘s Monsters are renowned for putting their paws up, however thousands had them down and fixed on their keyboards this morning, as the rush to snap up tickets to the singer’s UK tour commenced.

So fervent were her fans that tickets to all five UK dates sold out today in a mere matter of minutes.

Details after the jump…

Set to kick off in October following the US leg of the trek, ‘artrave: The ARTPOP Tour’ had been billed as one of the hottest live shows of the year – a status it’s already living up to.

After going on sale at 9am this morning on Ticketmaster, the company confirmed that all tickets were gone in just five minutes:

Say what you will, but there’s no denying GaGa’s potent pull as a live act. Whatever her sales are saying presently, she’s insured her longevity by being a bankable touring talent; one there’s clearly demand for.

We’ll be in the house at the ‘artrave’. Will you?

  5. The CAT Speaks February 8, 2014

    Wow. She missed by 3 minutes.
    Darn. lol

  7. cake like lady gaga February 8, 2014

    And the same will happen when she comes back to South Africa. The last time she was here she broke the internet and sold out the biggest stadium in Africa in just 2 minutes.

    She will do it again and the naysayers will remain seething at the slayage

  8. the truth hurts February 8, 2014

    Let’s take a look at ARTPOP’s chart postion in some of the major western markets shall we …..
    Uk top 100: 60
    Billboard 200: 49
    French chart: 120
    ARIA top 50: N/A
    Italian chart: 66

    In all of these charts17 week old ARTPOP is being outsold by 105 week old Born to Die. ARTPOP Is the definition of a flop.

    On topic. It’s not hard to sell out FIVE venues especially when your team holds back tickets to artificially inflate sales. I fell sorry for the people who bought tickets– I’m not sure the old hip will hold out.

    Well of course her tour will do well, she has old hits to draw people in. But let’s not act like fans rushed out and bought these, companies like ticket master rush out and buy these tickets and sell them for twice the price. So the whole “it sold out in minutes” is nothing to brag about, but good for her. I think the next album she’ll have her s*** together, her team pretty much left her ass dry.

  10. the truth hurts February 8, 2014

    @flop like lady gaga
    Come out of hiding have we? Shame the South African music industry means sh*t in the grand scheme of things.

  11. Mark111 February 8, 2014

    There you are Fake Like Lady Gaga, where have you and the creatures been? Did you guys fly south for the winter? Lol

  12. DOSSOME February 8, 2014

    How these tours get sold out in minutes but one still sees empty seats on the actual show still beats my imagination…Female “artists”(bieber included) are most notorious for employing these cheap propaganda.I never see these headlines for U2,Whose actual tours outgross all musicians

  13. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014

    Good For Her!

    Also, most tours dont actually “SELL OUT” it just something the concert promo/the artist team say to create hype for the concert.

    Just like when they say Elvis Presley sold 1+ billion records. But he really didn’t.

    The entertainment industry is full of lies & smokeNmirrors

  14. DOSSOME February 8, 2014

    @stephy….Oh,ok now i get it..Smh…Imho,female artists (bieber included) are really the worst when it comes to creating illusion of success,from youtube views,twitter followers,perfume sales,ticket sales etc,but when soundscan shows up with the REAL receipts,their asses remain stuck in the background.I haven’t really seen males doing this since Michael Jackson,no shade

  15. Suicide Blonde February 8, 2014


    How u dare?, Elvis did sold more than 1 billion.

    I agree with you.

  16. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014

    Suicide, I love you so much! 🙂

    Also, Elvis Presley DID NOT sell that much… Infact NO ONE has reached 1+ billion records.

    Elvis Presley has only shipped 210+ million records in the USA & sold about 175+ million records in the USA.

    As for worldwide! Elvis WAS NOT THAT HUGE WORLDWIDE.

    Michael Jackson & Madonna both have outsold Elvis in many major countries around the world.

    Also, alot of his sales are estimated due to lost/false claims. He came out during a time where it was not a real calculation of record sales being tracked BUT he did not sell 1+ Billion!

    Michael Jackson’s Thriller DID NOT sell 100+ copies & Michael Jackson DID NOT sell 750+ million records those are lies to HYPE up a dead/legendary artist to make them seem larger than life & spark peoples intrest on WHY they sold that many records. Its just a scam..

    Elvis Presley’s sales stand between 300-400 million.
    80% of those sales are from AMERICA alone. Making him the 2nd best seller in America.

    Madonna has outsold Elvis EVERYWHERE else in the world.

  17. ASBEENISH February 8, 2014

    Slay a little

  18. Suicide Blonde February 8, 2014

    I know all that but he really surpass the one billion mark ww, it’s just that certifiw. was non-existing in the US until 1958, let alone the rest of the world, he really was the greatest phenomenon in music history, alongside the Beatles, and he wasn’t racist before blah, blah, blah.

  19. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014


    Michael Jackson, Elvis Prelsey & The Beatles TEAMS are very guilty of spewing lies about thier actual sales.

    But Michael was never far behind in acutal REAL sales.

    When it comes to REAL sales Miochael is 3rd behind TB & Elvis..

    I really never understood the point of over hyping The Beatles, Elvis & MJ’s sales!

    They still have outsold everyone even with REAL receipts

  20. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014

    @Suicide, the lies!

    Elvis Presley was NOT the biggest artist of all time! He stole blacks music & made it into his own. He whole catalog was a complete scam! He did not write nor produce NOTHING I WOULD NOT EVEN CALL HIM A “ARTIST”…

    Also, Blah Blah Blah is Michael Jackson! What is your deal with MJ. You always throw underline SHADE at him & I catch that s*** ALL THE TIME!

    If Elvis sold 1+ Billion Records, Then Michael’s Thriller album sold 100+ Million copies…

  21. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014

    Stevie Wonder & The Bealtes >>>>>>>>>> Elvis Thiefly

  22. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014

    I always wondered why Michael Jackson is the only BLACK artist to sell over 300+ million records.

    Stevie Wonder catalog is just as good as Elvis & Elton & Queen & ABBA but is no where near thier sales…

    I think Stieve should be the biggest selling black artist!

    “Stevie Wonder is a musical profit” – Michael Jackson

  25. Sioux February 8, 2014

    But her album is tanking. She hasn’t even outsold Bangerz(which is also flopping). Sad.

  26. Rosie February 8, 2014

    LMAO @ 5 dates. Too bad they’re not helping sell her album.
    Also death at the South African being clocked. If it really worked at a multi-national auditing firm like it said it did it wouldn’t be perched on TGJ arguing with a few kids all day.

  27. Jamie February 8, 2014

    Why is born to die outselling Artpop already? smh its only sold 650k so far

  28. DOSSOME February 8, 2014

    I agree with you stephy…I know elvis,michael and beatles were the hugest stars in the world but 1 BILLION records is waaaay too high @suicide..Also @stephy,i have a strong feeling BOB MARLEY has sold more records than whatever’s reported,it is definitely not unlikely he could have surpassed the 300 million copies sold,he’s such a strong catalog seller

  29. Sandra February 8, 2014

    @STephy the lambily
    I dont know why record companies inflate sales, they inflated MJ’s sales to 750 million a few years ago and then even claimed he sold 1 billion. I love MJ, but those are clearly not true numbers. More likely is that MJ sold 500+ million records worldwide, not 750 mill or 1 billion. And I doubt that Elvis and beatles sold over 1,5 billion that people claim, if they did why hasn’t Elvis got a huge selling album? MJ and Beatles both have huge selling albums,,but not Elvis. They are the 3 best sellings acts but their sales are inflated honestly

  30. Sandra February 8, 2014

    Anyways, back on topic. Good for Lady Gaga if she sold out her tour dates but keep in mind that she only has 5 dates in the UK and they are smaller venues, no stadiums as she did on her last tour. It’s easy to sell out a theatre and arena tour.

  31. GAslickmouf February 8, 2014

    Why are you guys so damn mean???

    All the negative is out of hand, let her shine a little, she is doing a lot more then what we are doing and that is sitting behind a keyboard.

    I dont understand, so what her album didnt do well, but nobody here made all Str8 A’s frm schooleither, some of us made a B. We get the point she is not perfect but no on is.

    She is the only one that stood up for gays, but yet you guys treat her like s***.

    Im sure all of you guys have one of her albums, so dont treat her like s***.

    She puts wrk in, no lip synch, all live. She never half ass on the dance.
    She puts in work, the hate has got to stop. No one can enjoy anything anymore you guys are full of so much hate its ugly.

    I dont even have Artpop but I dont just bash her just because im bored either.

    Half of all you guys are gay, but no one stood up and kept there word like GaGa, but yall treat her like total b*******.

    Ppl find other things to do, just bashing just to bash is total middle school

    Well she didnt do this, she didnt do that
    She didnt sale this she didnt sale that

    Smh its really got to stop.

    Have a good day

  32. TC!!! February 8, 2014

    good for her her tours always do good I don’t expect anything less

  33. Sandra February 8, 2014

    Her tours always do good? Her last tour born this way ball was cancelled cause of low ticket sales and the Monster ball only grossed as much as it did because she did like 220 concerts on that tour.

  34. Sandra February 8, 2014

    Lady Gaga has lip synced, on her last tour she threw up and the “voice” kept singing while she was throwing up. Thats just one example. Never half ass on the dancing? She can’t dance, and she very much half assed it on the Born this way ball. And she’s not the only one to stand up for gay people, Madonna anyone?
    The reason people are hard on her isn’t because they hate her, its cause theyre sick of her and her overhyping and pretentiousness. She said this album would be the album of the millennium, be the best thing ever, her claiming she’s better than the other artists, etc. She does not live up to what she claims she is.
    Gaga only supports the gay community when she has something to promote. She don’t really care about anyone but herself.

  35. Sandra February 8, 2014

    By the way, that Versace picture of her is f****** UGLY. I doubt that Versace’s sales will increase when they have Gaga as their model.

  36. Lovebird February 8, 2014

    LMAO I remember when the propaganda of “Beyonce’s tour COMPLETELY SOLD OUT” in minutes was making its rounds on the internet; that is until Billboard cloaked her and her teams fake tea by posting the real receipts on the Score Card.

    What is that, 19 not sold out dates out of 59.

  37. Lovebird February 8, 2014

    We all know how many of these artists (Beyonce, Justin Bieber, etc) sell out within minutes.

    They (especially Beyonce) get their team to buy the tickets they have on sale and re-sell them at a huge mark-up.

    So for a venue of 15,000 audience, 3,000 would actually be up for sale; the rest will be bought up by Beyonce’s team and hawkers so the can sell them at a premium.

  38. Lovebird February 8, 2014

    *box office

  39. The truth hurts February 8, 2014

    Agreed! She looks like an ugly Eastern European transvestite prostitiute

  40. FutureCIARA February 8, 2014

    @Cake Like Lady Gaga

    Hey babe!?

  41. Ivan February 8, 2014

    I seriously don’t understand the incessant need for hate against her. She literally does nothing wrong and OF COURSE ARTPOP wasn’t going to outsell Born This Way. Remember when y’all called that a flop too? Now people are hating on her because she still has the ability to sale out stadiums. What you doing? Typing some s***** comment on some lame website??¿

  42. Ivan February 8, 2014

    Born this way ball was cancelled cause of her hip moron. And both the born this way ball and monster ball are in the top 20 highest grossing concert of all time. And here you are firing away on some little website. Gagas a multi millionaire. What you got?? FAFSA???

  43. Luc February 9, 2014

    You must know that for acts with big demand – Gaga, for example, there are people and sites who buy the tickets on the first day and then resell them for double the price. Sometimes, this doesn’t work: look at Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour or the Latin American leg of the BTWB. But if there’s enough demand to:
    a. Sell out the venue on TicketMaster
    b. Have the tickets from resellers cost more than the tickets on TicketMaster
    it means that the tour is doing well.
    U2 never gets these headlines, because there much less interest in rock acts on sites like these and because they do stadiums, which take a whole lot longer to sell out – including the so-called ‘touts’.

    Some artists simply fail to sell out, see Katy’s UK leg:
    smaller arenas, yet she fails to sell them all out.

  44. JOHNVIDAL February 9, 2014

    So many haters. You need a life, no matter if she does well or not, you´ll hate anyway. The fact remains she is still doing better or similar than people like Mylie Cyrus who is at her best moment commercially (failure anyway) without promo for months or hit singles. Gaga has plenty of talent and you are mad at the fact.

  45. kapstad February 10, 2014

    which stadium is this? cause i am from south Africa and she did not sell fnb stadium nor cape town stadium in 2 minutes.i remember my frnd buying a ticket for the joburg leg 3 days before the show so why lie
