Israel Tickets Selling Very Fast
Promoters claim that tickets to Elton John's concert went on sale at 7 pm yesterday evening, and more than 5,000 tickets were sold within the first hour, according to “IDF Radio" (Galei Zahal).
The tickets sold represent more than 10% of the available seats for the concert at Ramat Gan stadium.
Demand was so strong that the website processing the ticket requests collapsed, after more than 3,000 people entered the site within 15 minutes. However, the server was fixed.
When Leonard Cohen said he would be coming to Israel, tickets to his performance were sold out within 24 hours. It appears that tickets to Elton John's concert are selling at an even faster pace.
