Shows for Neil Diamond’s 2005 Australian tour sold out in minutes after going on sale yesterday morning.
Promoter Paul Dainty reports that in Melbourne, two shows at the 14,000 capacity Rod Laver Arena sold out within 20 minutes and a third show quickly went on sale.
Additional shows were also added for Sydney and Brisbane.
“Tickets to Neil Diamond’s Australian concerts have always sold at a rapid rate and this current tour is faster than ever” said Paul Dainty. “Neil’s popularity is as strong as ever and his success is unparalleled, he is the only international artist to sell one million concert tickets in this country and this tour will see Neil break his own record.”
