Jessie J tour sells 20,000 tickets in 20 minutes

Tickets went on sale yesterday for Jessie J’s upcoming UK tour and sold 20,000 in only 20 minutes.

The 'Heartbeat' tour will begin on October 17th at the Birmingham Academy and will last a total of 12 dates, winding up at the Brighton Centre on November 3rd.

The star’s popularity has surged in recent months and it’s likely that her next tour could be a stadium one. So, it’s no surprise that fans were eager to snap up tickets for this medium-venue tour. The ‘Price Tag’ singer also has festival dates lined up at Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival, Lovebox and the Big Chill.

After the tickets went on sale for the star’s tour, the PR department of her record label, Island Records, excitedly tweeted: “Jessie J UK tour went on general sale this morning, over 20,000 tickets were sold in 20mins!”
