More about: Lady Gaga
They only went on sale this morning (8 February), but tickets for Lady Gaga's artRAVE UK tour have already sold out. In fact, the majority of tickets for the singer's dates sold out within minutes.
Tickets went on sale as 9am this morning, and Ticketmaster tweeted 23 minutes later revealing that tickets had already gone.
There was tremendous demand for @ladygaga and all tickets have now gone. We apologise to fans who were unable to get tickets.— Ticketmaster UK (@TicketmasterUK) February 8, 2014
After touring throughout mainland Europe, Gaga will be performing in the UK in October, at venues including Birmingham's NIA Arena and the O2 London. Many fans hoping to attend these dates were left disappointed this morning.

Meanwhile, many fans were frustrated by the speed at which tickets appeared on re-sale websites.
It's an absolute joke that people bought lady gaga tickets just to sell on for over £200, HOPE YOU DONT SELL THEM AND LOSE MONEY, CUNTS— George (@ladyxgaga_) February 8, 2014
@TicketmasterUK should be ashamed of themselves for selling most of the lady gaga tickets to tout websites. You're a shame to the public— Sam (@Samishlol) February 8, 2014
Gaga has only performed full shows in the UK twice recently - once at the iTunes festival and once at December's Jingle Bell Ball - so it's not surprising tickets were in such high demand.
Lady Gaga's third album ARTPOP was released last year, and, despite the singer being forced to deny rumours that label staff were fired due to the album "flopping", it achieved impressive sales.
