Words by Staff Writer

Fred again..’s Australian arena shows have officially sold out.

Announced yesterday afternoon and placed on sale this morning, his three-night stands at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, as well as a yet-to-be-announced location on the Gold Coast, saw over one million fans swarming ticketing websites and purchasing over 100,000 tickets in a matter of hours.

This unprecedented feat was foreshadowed when Fred arrived in Australia by surprise on Tuesday, announcing a performance at Sydney’s Opera House for that evening via his Instagram and selling it out emphatically – with over 145,000 people queuing for tickets. The show set the record for the largest on-sale demand the Concert Hall has ever had.
