Stones Sell Out Hyde Park
Tickets gone "in seconds"
"Basically we sold 65,000 tickets in the speed the system could handle it. If the system could handle it in seconds, we would have probably sold out in seconds. There are all these other artists out there this year — we’ve got Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, Bon Jovi — but the tickets went as quickly as the system could do it" said concert promoter Rob Hallett.
Hallett also promised that anyone who had secured a basic £95 ticket would be able to get a ringside view on July 6.
"The band wanted the regular ticket-holders to be right at the front of the stage...not 200 yards away" he said. "The people who have coughed up for hospitality packages will get looked after in a way they have never known before. But when the doors open, if you can run faster than the next guy, it will be like any other general admission gig."
