When it comes to Justin Bieber, it seems anything is possible. That includes selling out not one, but two, Madison Square Garden concerts in record time. That's half a minute, or 30 seconds, by the way.
It may sound inconceivable that anyone, no matter their popularity, could meet such a goal. However, the Biebs isn't just anyone. He's already accomplished a lot in his short lifetime and he's not about to stop setting records now.
The singer also sold his entire tour in less that 60 minutes. That's really impressive if you stop to think about it.
Keep in mind, that about 10 percent of those tickets were already gone before the official sale started. It is common for a block of tickets get purchased ahead of time to accommodate people within the industry and other important groups like fan club members, the press and Bieber's personal guests. Recording artists often pre-purchase tickets which they later scalp at inflated prices. It's a common practice.
Of course that still leaves 90 percent of the tickets for sale. However, with Justin Bieber's wide audience, all of whom are aware when he's about to go on tour, it takes only minutes to sell out any concert. Or should we say, it takes only seconds?
Justin Bieber is a phenomenon that shows little sign of dying out. His popularity is akin to that of Elvis or the Beatles. Given that, it's no surprise his fans always stand behind him. A trip to Bieber paradise is just a click away online and his fans are always going to take advantage.
