IN A NEW YORK MINUTE: Beyonce's "4" Concert Sells Out In 22 Seconds!


Things happen fast as all hell in New York City, but this is on another level.  If you blinked your eyes at your computer screen earlier today when trying to cop Beyonce tix, you might have missed your chance.  Get the deets on how the diva's NYC 4-nights-only concert tickets got gobbled up in SECONDS....

 

Earlier today, sales for Beyonce's "4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce" concert series went on sale.  And they were gone literally in a flash.  According to her label Columbia's press release, her first show, on August 14 at NYC's Roseland Ballroom, sold out in 22 seconds!

With three nights left, the final shows went on sale every hour today until 4pm EST.  And before 5p, all 4 dates were sold out.

The show itself is being hyped as an opportunity for Bey to perform her entire album, "4" before an intimate room of fans.   Most of us will be praying for a DVD release...

In other Beyonce news, the charitable artist is lending her support to the East African food crisis by linking her social networking pages to a downloaded movie about the crisis.  Great to see she continues to give back.

People camped out overnight

People camped out overnight in the pouring rain! The line completely wrapped around the block and was overlapping - insane. This girl is god's gift to entertainment. True powerhouse talent. And was so humble, warm, BEAUTIFUL (skin is gorgeous) and funny. People didn't want to leave when it was over! Intimate Affair - lol - it was like 3500 people there and she ROCKED!

It's billed as an INTIMATE

It's billed as an INTIMATE AFFAIR. No secret on size. The capacity is 2500 and they packed 3600 into their. The shows are hyped bc not everyone can sell out 4 shows in the same setting doing the same songs. And that's because she's very relevant.

I don't think the tix were

I don't think the tix were ever available to the public. With or without the Citi card it's effed up that we couldn't get tix to a show announced a week ahead of time. I actually think it's a great marketing ploy. She "sold out" show to promoters, contests, radio etc. and the people that purchased the album get screwed. Then after you know the tix are sold out, you go further to release in on ticketmaster TODAY! I'm pissed and I'll never use my money to support her again.

It's not HER or her RECORD

It's not HER or her RECORD COMPANY'S doing when this happens. PROMOTERS, Radio Stations and other ticket agency outlets are allowed to buy chunks of tickets for resale and giveaways. The promoters do it bc when it's a hot ticket, they know they can re-sell for $200 or more over the price. It's legal but fucked up for fans. I actually did get my tix through the pre-sale. It's just a matter of luck and getting through and if not, catch them through re-sale at the other agencies when ticketmaster runs out.

I just paid $22,87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38,76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $71,32 to buy.

First of all, I copped 4

First of all, I copped 4 tickets to the Friday concert and I can co-sign on how hard they were to get. The ONLY reason I was able to get tix is because CitiCard offered it's members a pre-sale 1 hr before the tix became available to the general public. I was the ONLY one of of my whole crew to get tix. All my other friends had no luck so yeah, Bey sold all those tickets mad quick!

Who cares if a bunch a

Who cares if a bunch a talentless haters don't believe it? Their opinion of Beyonce and her achievements in no way affects me or my opinion of Bey. She is the best one doing it. PERIOD. And she has millions of fans that agree. I think we, as Bey fans, should just the let the haters think what they want. Clearly these stupid comments aren't affecting her success. Let the haters vent :) It must be tough that Bey is still winning, even without a hit single...lol. Talent will always speak louder.

right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! almost

right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! almost every female artist in the music industry has acknowledged Beyonce's talent or at least paid her some type of compliment. And not just the legends--But even the majority of her peers are fans of hers. She's not worried about any of these fools--and we shouldn't either.

TAHAHAHAHAH HAHAHA HAH HA HA

TAHAHAHAHAH HAHAHA HAH HA HA HA. Work Bey! AND LOOK AT ALL THESE SILLY HATERS TRYNA COME FOR HER. SMH. Beyonce will always be the most hated, because she will always pose a threat to your favorites. GET USED TO IT. She doesn't need a number 1 hit to carry her or her album. Enough people love Beyonce that she doesn't have to do shit to continue winning. When you have a net worth of 300 million dollars, haters must look like nothing but ants. Keep doing you, Bey! (I can't wait for the jealous responses-that I will ignore, just like Bey. lol.)

Mad MTV canceled "I want a Famous Face" Bitches who grew-up lonely with out role models and friends and have nothing of their own to be proud of stay worshiping and wanting to be their fantasy dream celebrity.

AMERICA HAS SH*TTY

AMERICA HAS SH*TTY PRIORITIES FAIL on all the fans who empty their pockets and starve to make "the so called talented" beyond rich. They're not just paid well, they are beyond what is necessary to survive. "Ashton Kutcher is currently the highest paid sitcom actor at $700,000 an episode. He makes double what Laurence Fishburne did, $350,000 an episode, for his stint on CSI." WHY????????? WHAT?????????? HUH???????????? What really sucks is that half these rich people say they don't even watch tv/movies, some don't even live in the States, they get high end merchandise for free so they don't help generate money back into the system, they shop and buy land overseas and the rich innovators/scientist/creators of the world often say they don't even keep a tv in the house or they just READ books for their leisure pleasure (and authors don't even make what actors make yet "Upper-class sophisticated "arrogant's" love to brag about their book reading ), Teachers, government, community healthcare workers and city workers don't make money like that and they offer the most value to the foundation of the country, they are needed, Nobody "NEEDS" ashton, clooney, angelina, beyonce, wayne, to the point their salary should be beyond necessary and out rank those who make the country go and grow. FAIL on simple-minded American Priorities, you're the ones who keep allowing the country to prioritize entertainment over NEEDED function, NASA has to close but Ashton stays open, WTF, schools are being shut-down but Basketball Wives is expanding, WTF, People at the top of the success ladder stay laughing at you while they stay rich and shop and live outside the country, free to easily escape the economic disaster that silly Americans with low-level priorities caused. After finding out how you people worshiped celebrities to the point they became allowed to reach that kind of salary for doing nothing no more difficult than the rest of the working world, you deserve to be in a recession, depression, final days. While you're living in the streets look up at your famous people fly over you in their jets, maybe they will drop you down a CD/DVD to eat.

You are speaking the truth!

You are speaking the truth! Just saw a report about how J.LO and a couple of other celebrities are "concerned" about the recession because their fans are struggling to afford their unnecessary crap that they put out. Are they serious?? The sad thing about it is that these celebs are driven by nothing but greed. Going to see Beyonce in concert shouldn't cost the same as a car note or electric bill. I'm sorry. She (or anyone else) not worth all of that. And these greedy celebs know that these silly fans will spend their last penny on their unnecessary stuff. That is ABSOLUTELY a crying shame. But this fascination with celebrities is all just a means to keep people preoccupied and dumbed-down to what's really going on in the world. Celebrity gossip mags used to be something you read at the check-out line at the grocery store and kept it moving. It wasn't until around 2000 that all of this celebrity worshipping nonsense took off. While people were arguing and fighting over Beyonce's latest lacefront, and who Chris Brown is sleeping with, the government is quietly dismantling our way of life. SMH.

AMEN!!!! I really couldn't

AMEN!!!! I really couldn't have said it better myself. What you said, word for word is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I'm from Toronto, Canada and although there are idiots here too that worship celebrities, its much bigger business there in the U.S. as most celebs are American and reside there. It's a shame where North American priorities lie nowadays. Nothing wrong with having fun, but alot of people as you said break the bank to go see these overpriced concerts and yes, at the end of the day, those who buy into it, only make these celebs richer and richer. It's called over saturation of media and brainwashing at it's finest. Instead of worrying about getting tickets to Beyonce's concert, pay off your credit card debt for God sakes! SMDH...

If only Beyonce's album would

If only Beyonce's album would move units like her 1st concert date. Her record company would be happy. For the record, I questioned anything that comes from an artist's record company in regards to selling out concerts. Beyonce's record company's job is to promote her and they will say anything to move units. Now if it was Ticketmaster that said this then it would be more believeable.
