Tickets for Foo Fighters’ first-ever show in Croatia sold out within minutes when they went on sale earlier today, promoter Los Angeles Agency (LAA) has announced.

All 7,000 tickets for the Pula Arena show – part of a string of recently announced 2019 European tour dates, which also include headline slots at Hurricane and Southside in Germany and Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK – were snapped up within the space of two minutes, according to LAA.

“We are sorry for all those who did not succeed [in buying one], but the interest was simply too great for such a small capacity,” reads a statement from the promoter.

Foo Fighters will play Pula Arena – a Roman amphitheatre built between 27BC and AD68 – on 19 June 2019.

According to Croatia Week, it is the fastest-ever sell-out in Croatia, beating U2 in Zagreb, David Gilmour in Pula and Chris Cornell in Zagreb (though it should be noted the U2 show was at a stadium).
