Rolling Stones Paris concert sells 75,000 tickets in under an hour
The Rolling Stones' extra tour date in Paris sells out in 51 minutes
Rolling Stones fans today snapped up 75,000 tickets for a Paris concert in June in less than an hour.
The tickets for the Paris leg of the "14 on Fire" tour on June 13 were put on sale at 10:00am and sold out in 51 minutes, said Pascal Bernandin of Encore productions.
The tour began in Abu Dhabi on February 21 but was suspended after the March 17 suicide of Stones' frontman Mick Jagger's girlfriend, US fashion designer L'Wren Scott.
The Paris gig, due to take place at the iconic Stade de France, was an extra date that was announced last Sunday after the the band postponed a tour visit to Australia following Scott's death. The band say they will reschedule their Australia appearance.
They are also scheduled to play two gigs in Germany and one each in Belgium and Italy, where they have promised to treat their audiences to hits such as "Gimme Shelter", "Paint It Black", "Jumping Jack Flash" and "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll".
