Bieber Tickets Selling at Record Speed

By Iceland Review

All advance tickets for the much anticipated Justin Bieber concert in Iceland next September sold out in lightning fast time.

Special advance tickets were put on sale this morning exclusively for customers registered to the mailing lists of event sponsors WOW air and Pepsi Max. There were none left by the morning’s end.

Extra-special-advance-advance tickets were available yesterday for members of the Justin Bieber fan club—which costs ISK 5,000 to join—and over 6,000 of its members tried to buy the 1,000 tickets it had available yesterday.

Overall, including general ticket sales which have yet to begin, there will be 19,000 fans at the September concert in Kópavogur, near Reykjavík, making it the single biggest music concert in Icelandic history.

General ticket sales begin tomorrow, Saturday, and organizers expect all tickets to sell out almost immediately.

Ticket sales begin at 10.00 Icelandic time on

According to RÚV, demand for Bieber tickets is expected to exceed that for last year’s Justin Timberlake concert, even though there will be 2,000 more spaces available this time round.

The concert will be Justin Bieber’s second visit to Iceland, following a trip this September during which he filmed the video for I’ll Show You—which has been viewed 90 million times on YouTube. You can watch it by clicking here.

Everything about the concert will be giant sized. RÚV sources believe that the Canadian pop star will arrive in Iceland with a team of about 100 people and seven tons of equipment. In addition, all available tools and equipment for hire in Iceland have already been booked out for the concert, which is expected to include one of the country’s biggest and best light shows to date.

The concert in Iceland will be the first leg of Justin Bieber’s European tour.
