Justin Timberlake's London gig sell out in 45 minutes

Tickets to see Justin Timberlake's perform his first London show for two years sold out in under an hour.

The Cry Me a River star heads the lineup for Capital Up Close, with Coca Cola, an intimate concert series from radio station Capital FM which will see global superstars perform in a small venue.

Justin last performed in London two years ago, at The O2 arena. He'll be back at the same complex, but this time the 35-year-old will be gracing the stage at the indigo at The O2, which has a capacity of just 2,800. Unsurprisingly, tickets for the concert sold quickly after the radio station released the news.

Capital FM tweeted: "Yassss! We're bringing Justin Timberlake to London for an exclusive intimate gig. Tickets sold out in just 45 minutes so your only way in, is to win."

Tickets went on sale at 8am on Friday morning (15Sep16), but fans were no doubt left disappointed as they sold out in under an hour. However, for those lucky Justin admirers who managed to cop tickets, which were limited to 4 per person, they'll enjoy a once in a lifetime opportunity to see their pop idol up close and personal.

“Justin is used to playing huge arenas so this is going to be something special, " a source told British newspaper The Sun. “Fans will be able to get up real close to their idol and the sound quality will be amazing.

“Obviously there will be a clamour for tickets, but the lucky few who get them will be in for a treat.”

The Rock Your Body singer performs at London’s indigo at The O2 on 3rd October.
