Swedish House Mafia Sell Out U.S. Tour in Minutes

 Fredrik Skogkvist

Swedish House Mafia, among the most popular EDM (electronic dance music) acts, has sold out all announced tour dates for their upcoming U.S. tour in a matter of minutes.

The trek, called One Last Tour, will be their last and demand for tickets has been high causing additional shows to be added (among them, stops in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, starting in February, 2013).

The trio's two New York shows in March -- Madison Square Garden (they were the first DJ act to headline the arena) and Barclays Center -- sold out in less than 8 minutes, precipitating the addition of a two more Brooklyn shows (March 3 sold out, the March 4 date is on sale now).

A similar scenario played out in Chicago, where the group's Feb. 20 gig at the United Center sold out in 5 minutes. Three nights were added in San Francisco (Feb. 13, 14 and 15) along with a second show in Los Angeles on March 8.
