Tickets for a pop concert to mark the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death sold out in minutes on Wednesday, organizers said. “The initial allocation of tickets has now been sold and we hope more tickets will be available at a later date,” said a spokeswoman for the princes.
She added that around 22,500 tickets were sold in 20 minutes on Wednesday, and that the capacity for the event was likely to be about 60,000. More tickets may go on sale at a later date via the concert’s Web site www.concertfordiana.com.
The face value of tickets is 45 pounds ($89) each, although they attracted bids of up to 500 pounds each on the online auction site www.ebay.co.uk early on Wednesday.
