Tickets for U2's concert at Barcelona's Nou Camp stadium on June 30th, went on sale this morning and sold out in just 54 minutes, a record for a rock concert in Spain according to tour promoters, Live Nation.

90,000 fans will watch the Irish supergroup kick off their '360º Tour' which will visit Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Poland, Hungary, Sweden, Ireland and the UK before coming to an end in New York on September 24th.

Some had spent all night queuing for the chance to see the band live in June.

In a joint venture between U2 and Ticketmaster, the remaining 1000 tickets will be sold on the internet at www.ticketmaster.es in the form of an auction, with fans bidding for them.  Part of the profit from the ticket auction will be donated to the Global Fund to fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria in Africa.
