Tickets for two Billy Connolly shows at Aberdeen’s Music Hall sold out in 50 minutes today.

Tickets will be restricted to six per customer/transaction and go on sale at 9.30am this Friday (July 11).

The 2600 tickets – restricted to six per customer/transaction - for the shows on Monday and Tuesday, September 29 and 30 went onsale at 9.30am today and were sold out around 50 minutes later - 71% were sold through Box Office website, 18% in person and 11% on telephone sales.

“We knew this was going to be a busy day - the queue outside the Music Hall started at 4.15am,” said Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers.

“We sympathise with those who were disappointed, but we made every effort to maximise Box Office capacity and continually monitored the situation. The website struggled with the sheer volume of traffic at one point.

“We are now looking forward to welcoming Billy Connolly to the Music Hall for two great shows to kick off his High Horse tour.”
