WINDSWEPT fans yesterday queued early in chilly gusts to buy tickets to see pop sensations The Saturdays.
Tickets for the Rhyl Pavilion concert went on sale at 10am and sold out in just two hours and 50 minutes.
It beat the whole day it took for 2008 X Factor winner Alexandra Burke to sell-out her concert on January 14, 2011 at the same venue.
London-based The Saturdays – Una Healy, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Rochelle Wiseman – stage their much-anticipated concert there on February 3, 2011.
Yesterday, one Saturdays fan even tried to set up his tent at midnight but most arrived from 5.30am.
The queue grew and snaked around the foyer of the giant concert hall.
At 9.15am, Pavilion staff opened their doors and grateful fans then queued inside until the box office opened at 10am. By then the numbers had swelled to 100.
Continue after the break.
