Verve Comeback Tickets Sell-Out

The Verve's comeback tour sold out within 20 minutes yesterday - after announcing last week that the Wigan band were in the studio and ready to go out on tour in November.

All tickets for the six shows they announced – at the Glasgow Academy, Blackpool Empress Ballroom and the London Roundhouse – had sold out by 9.20am yesterday.

Out of the blue, and eight years after they split acrimoniously, the band – Richard Ashcroft, Pete Salisbury, Mick McCabe and Simon Jones – shocked the music world by announcing they were working on a new album. In announcing six dates, they put the feelers out to see what kind of a reaction they would receive from their fans. And it has been overwhelming.

A Myspace site set up by the band's management just two weeks ago has already had 30,000 visitors and demand for tickets for the new gigs went through the roof.
