Tickets for Michael McIntyre at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds sell out within minutes
The hottest tickets in town have sold out within an hour of going on sale.
Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds opened ticket sales for Michael McIntyre: Work in Progress this morning, with the online box office already showing the performance as sold out.
Julie Cole, head of marketing and sales, said: "We’re so excited to have Michael McIntyre coming back to Theatre Royal – it’s a great opportunity for local audiences to see him in the intimate setting of our auditorium.
"We knew tickets would be popular and we were proved right with all tickets selling out within minutes after going on sale.
I know that there will be many disappointed Michael McIntyre fans out there who weren’t successful in securing tickets, but with a big name like this and a small theatre like ours, demand was always going to be greater than supply.
For fans of comedians we have John Shuttleworth, Mark Thomas, Milton Jones, Ed Byrne and Rob Newman also visiting this year."
The comedian is returning to the Westgate Street theatre on September 9.
Tickets, priced at £27 each, were limited to four per household.
