Gary Barlow's solo shows sell out in minutes
Tickets for Gary Barlow’s first solo shows in over 11 years sold out minutes after going on sale on Friday (28 October).
Tickets for the two concerts (5 & 6 December), which will raise funds for youth charity The Prince’s Trust and The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, went on sale at 9am and had sold out within the hour.
Gary says 'I've been overwhelmed at the response for both shows which sold out on Friday. Fans will be glad to know we've kept some back with great views of the stage to auction off to the highest bidder so we can make as much money as we possibly can for The Princes Trust ".
Fans who missed out can now bid for the last remaining tickets online at www.gigsandtours.com/garybarlow. The auction, which launches today (28 October) and runs until 8pm on Wednesday 2 November, will see tickets go to the highest bidders.
Gary is a long-term supporter of youth charity The Prince’s Trust, having donated proceeds from his GB40 show earlier in the year and also attended The Trust’s Rock Gala event in 2010. The solo shows in December will support the charity’s City Riots Appeal.
“I’m glad the tickets have sold out so quickly - the money being raised is going to a cause close to my heart. The Prince’s Trust’s City Riots Appeal will help disadvantaged young people living in riot-torn areas.” says Gary.
There are 500 auction tickets now available for the Gary Barlow concerts - “In Support of Young People” - including 200 for 5 December and 300 for 6 December. The tickets include Arena and Stalls seats and bids will be limited to one or two tickets.
The acclaimed singer/songwriter sisters, The Pierces, will be Gary’s special guests on both nights, opening up proceedings with their beautiful harmonies and unique musical sound.
