Alan Jackson’s First Australian Tour SOLD Out Within Hours This Past October
Tickets for Alan Jackson’s first ever tour in Australia – scheduled for March of 2011 – sold out within hours of being put on sale in October.
Ticket sales for the four announced dates – Melbourne (March 4), Sydney (March 7) and Brisbane (March 10 and 11) – sold so quickly that the tour was extended; an additional concert, a third show in Brisbane, was added to the schedule. That additional March 12th show sold out in 23 minutes.
“We’re looking at what may be the fastest selling country show or tour in Australian country music history,” said Rob Potts, CEO of Rob Potts Entertainment Edge and co-promoter of the tour.
Alan Jackson on the concert sellout said, “I‘m a Southern man, and that‘s about as far South as we can go – let’s go do it!”
