Rolling Stones New York gigs smash demand for World Series and Superbowl combined on viagogo

(PRWEB) October 27, 2012

As tickets for the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary concerts sell out in record time, such is the demand to see the legendary rockers that searches on viagogo for their two dates at the Prudential Center (December 13 & 15) are currently outstripping searches for World Series tickets by 25 to one, and the recorded demand for last year's Superbowl by five to one.

As well as the one million Americans who are trying to buy tickets, Stones fans in the US are facing competition from the hundreds of thousands of British fans who missed out on tickets for the two London dates, which sold out in seven minutes. Fans from Europe have been flocking to viagogo to register interest in tickets to the New York dates, with over 300,000 Europeans – enough to sell out the entire World Series – searching for tickets to the New York shows in the past week.

Ed Parkinson, viagogo spokesperson said: “With a worldwide following and a very limited number of tickets available, The Rolling Stones are currently smashing the World Series and Superbowl in the demand stakes.
“Competition for tickets is incredible, but with the second date being recorded and televised on pay per view, it really will be a chance to be a part of history.”
