Madonna and Britney Spears fans looking to buy concert tickets through ticket-vendors Lippupiste and Lippupalvelu faced jammed phone lines and glitches with internet booking services on Monday.
Last week, concert organizers announced that a further 5,000 tickets would be released on Monday for megastar Madonna's summer concert in Helsinki. Two thousand of the tickets were for the best seats at the concert stadium.
Tickets for Madonna's concert went on sale at Lippupiste ticket outlets on Monday morning. Ticket prices range from 99 to 119 euros. Concert organisers decided to release additional tickets due to exceptionally high demand.
Madonna will take the stage in front of 80, 000 die-hard fans at Jätkäsaari in Helsinki on August 6th. Her show is the largest public event ever to be staged in Finland.
Her phenomenally successful "Sticky & Sweet Tour" is the top grossing tour in history for a solo artist.
Britney Spears' "Circus Tour" will be staged at the Helsinki Arena on July 16th.
