Paul McCartney’s one night stand April 19 at Las Vegas’ New Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has already set a world record, moving all 4000 tickets in a mere seven seconds–a rate of nearly 600 seats a second.
According to promoters Concerts West/AEG Live, the show may well set additional records, including the record for the planet’s biggest “love-in” for Valentine couples: Tickets were deliberately put on sale on February 14th so that lovers could express their feelings with the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift surprise.
“Although Guinness World Records cites numerous records relating to Valentine’s Day, nobody has managed a Valentine’s party this big before – so we’ll be claiming that”, said a spokesman for Concerts West/AEG Live. “And there is another Guinness record it would be cool to break there too – the world record for the most couples hugging simultaneously is 1,451, set in Taiwan in 2007.”
