If we're to believe the hype, Justin Bieber sold out Madison Square Garden in 30 seconds. Not minutes, seconds.
Twenty thousand tickets gone in less time that it's taken me to type this.
We're also being asked to believe that the Biebster's entire North American tour sold out in an hour.
Doing the math, that works out to 1,000 tickets being sold EVERY SECOND since they went on sale.
It's time to call bullshit on this. NPR has published a blog entry on this crap, pointing out that none of this happened as advertised.
And if you're thinking that the deck remains stacked against the ordinary average concert-goer, you're right.
