JUSTIN Bieber concert tickets at Manchester’s Barclaycard Arena sold out in under 10 minutes after tickets went on sale at 9am this morning.
Many fans were waiting on Ticketmaster for the release of the tickets this morning after pre-sale on American Express sold out last night.
Belibers were left upset when the Ticketmaster site appeared to crash after experiencing such high volume.
An official statement from the company on Twitter apologised for the delay.

Due to phenomenal demand the ‘Love Yourself’ singer confirmed he would be adding a third date to his Manchester stop-off as part of his Purpose World Tour on 23 November 2016.
Bieber has not been to the UK since 2013 and his return sent many fans into meltdown.
Rebecca Marshall, a 19-year old fan from Stockport said she had multiple family members waiting for this morning’s release.
“I had my Mum on the IPad, my Dad on the laptop and my sister on her phone. When the site went down, I panicked, I’d been waiting since about 8am.
“Thankfully I managed to get two tickets. They’re quite high up but I don’t care.”
After selling out 64 dates in North America, the award-winning singer will tour over 30 dates across Europe in 2016, including stops in the UK, Germany, Spain, France and Portugal.
The ‘Purpose World Tour’ comes hot on the heels of his fourth album, Purpose, which set a new Spotify record with more than 200 million streams in its first week.
Earlier in the week fans were warned not to buy unofficial tickets, however there are already plenty being resold on authorised websites such as GetMeIn from £103 for Upper Tier seats.
