The special homecoming gig by chart-topping Emeli Sandé at Aberdeen’s Music Hall sold out within minutes.
Tickets for the concert to wind up her solo UK tour went on sale at Aberdeen Box Office at 9am today (Friday) and sold out in 70 minutes.
Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers said: “They flew out of the door at breath-taking speed. We knew it was going to be a hugely popular gig – Emeli obviously has an enormous following in a city which regards her with great affection as their own.
“People started queuing just after 7am and the phones have never stopped. Luckily we drafted extra staff in to cope with the calls, so all went well and we are now looking forward enormously to what is sure to be a fantastic gig on April 19.”
Emeli’s last appearance in the city was her headlining performance as part of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay in June, where she played a short set to thrilled fans at the city’s Castlegate. Her last full concert here was a sell-out show at the Music Hall last April.
Her debut album, Our Version of Events, has now been in the UK Top 10 for 50 consectuive weeks and her latest single Clown is a Top 10 sales and airplay hit.
