Springsteen sell-out at Leeds Arena

Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen

Tickets for Bruce Springsteen's gig at Leeds Arena sold out in under 10 minutes.

More than 200 people - some who had queued since 9pm last night - waited for the pop up box office to open at Leeds Town Hall.

‘The Boss’ will play the £60m venue on Wednesday, July 24. It had been thought Sir Elton John’s previously-announced show in September would be the first at the 13,500-capacity arena.

But the venue decided to arrange a one-off ‘pre-opening’ date when Springsteen made a special request to play there.
