First day ticket sales for BBC Proms 2013
During the first twelve hours of ticket sales for the 2013 BBC Proms season, a record of over 114,000 tickets were sold representing a 17% increase on the same period last year. The vast majority of tickets were sold via the Royal Albert Hall’s online ticketing service.
According to a BBC Proms press release issued earlier this evening, the most popular proms in sales terms were the first night, the two Doctor Who Proms and two Bavarian Symphony Orchestra concerts on 8 and 9 August, none of which I recommended in my recent rundown. Still, at least that means there won’t be a rabble at the gigs I want to go to.
