Jay-Z Sold 'American Gangster' Tickets Within Seconds

Anticipation is running really high on Jay-Z's tour to support his upcoming release, 'American Gangster'.

The retirement that announced last year apparently triggered his fans to buy his tickets once he announced a tour. The rapper sold his tickets to 'American Gangster' tour within, not hours or minutes, but seconds!

The November 12 date in Philadelphia was sold out in 30 seconds according to Roc-a-Fella.com. The kick off date in Los Angeles meanwhile beat it by more than half at 11 seconds but still Chicago hold the record by selling within mere 8 seconds.

With such huge demand, looks like Jay-Z's management team will need no heavy promotion when new dates are added in Washington DC and Atlanta.

In the meantime, '' which will be released next week (November 6), will be promoted by Jay-Z on VH1 Storytellers. The show will air November 8.
