MONTREAL — The 65,000 tickets for Madonna's show on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City sold out in less than an hour (20 minutes) Friday.
Tickets for the Sept. 1 concert on the historic battlefield ranged from $55 to $250, excluding administrative fees.
Other artists including Paul McCartney and Celine Dion have previously given free concerts on the Plains.
A spokeswoman for the National Battlefields Commission, which looks after the Plains, said earlier this month that the federal agency agreed to the paid admission after considering the economic spinoffs from the event.
Madonna will also appear in Montreal on Aug. 30, Ottawa on Sept. 10, Toronto on Sept. 12 and 13, and Vancouver on Sept. 29 and 30.
