McCartney Las Vegas show sells out in seconds

Tickets for a one-off gig in Las Vegas by Sir Paul McCartney sold out seven seconds after going on sale, according to organisers.

Just 4,000 lucky fans will see the former Beatle perform at the opening of the New Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on 19 April. The new $60 million (£43.6m) venue is twice the size of its predecessor.

Tickets went on sale on 14 February and sold at a rate of almost 600 a second, according to promoter Concerts West.
