In less time than it takes to sing the hook to “Run the World (Girls),” Beyoncé sold out the first of her four New York shows.
The pop superstar announced “4 Intimate Nights With Beyoncé,” a series of four intimate performances at New York City’s famed Roseland Ballroom. Tickets went on sale today with the first show on August 14 selling out in a lightening-fast 22 seconds.
Those who weren’t able to get tickets to the first show on Sunday can try their luck at three other dates set for August 16, 18, and 19. Tickets for the remaining nights go on sale throughout the day and are expected to all sell out.
Beyoncé will perform her new album 4 in its entirety at these special concerts.
UPDATE: Columbia Records reports that all four shows have now sold out. “It’s official @Beyonce’s 4th & final show at Roseland Ballroom is SOLD OUT! Thats a total of 4 sold out shows next week!” tweeted the label.
