Madonna’s Colombia concert sells out in less than a week

Madonna’s November concert in Medellin sold out in less than a week, Radio Caracol reported Friday.

Colombians clamoured to see the Queen of Pop on her first tour date in Colombia and the last 2,000 tickets sold out in less than half an hour.

The spokesman for Ocesa Colombia, the event company putting on the concert, said it was a dream come true for Colombians to bring Madonna to their country and credited Medellin’s mayor Anibal Gaviria for making the event possible.

The concert has promised to bring a large influx of tourists to the city with hotels in Medellin already 80% booked for the night of the concert.

Although most (55%) of ticket buyers were in Medellin, many out-of-towners bought tickets for the pop star’s only stop in Colombia on her six-city tour of Latin America.

34% of ticket buyers were in Bogata and Cundinamarca, another 4% were in the Valle del Cauca department, and the remaining 7% were from elsewhere in Colombia and neighboring countries.
