Banquet Records revealed that Fall Out Boy’s short acoustic set at Kingston’s Hippodrome sold 140 tickets per second.

There were 12,300 views of the ticket page within the half-hour before the tickets were released.

Banquet Records, who hosted the show, confirmed on Twitter: “Our site guru Gary just confirmed Fall Out Boy sold out in ten seconds.”

With just 1,400 tickets available it was one of the smallest and most exclusive shows the band have performed since their break ended in 2012.

The Chicago-based group performed an acoustic show in Kingston for the first time and fans took to the streets from as early as 4.30am Friday morning to get within touching distance of lead singer Patrick Stump.

“I extended my stay in my hostel for an extra night just for this, I was at the Brixton gig last night and trudged over to Kingston early this morning,” said 30-year-old Adele whilst wrapped in a duvet.

The acoustic set included exclusive previews from Fall Out Boy’s highly anticipated seventh album, M A N I A, released on January 19 2018.
