TICKETS for a July 31 concert by Australian pop singer Amy Shark have sold out in just 17 minutes at Mount Gambier’s Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre.

Theatre manager Frank Morello said the last show to sell out at a similar pace to Ms Shark’s was popular children’s stage performance Bluey last year.

“We started at about 10am and by about 10.17am we could see the seat plan was lit up like a Christmas tree,” Mr Morello said.

Ms Shark’s last appearance in South Australia was in February in Adelaide during her ‘Cry Forever’ tour.

Known for songs such as ‘I Said Hi’ and ‘Everybody Rise’ Ms Shark scored nine nominations at the 2018 ARIA Awards and four wins, including Album Of The Year, Best Female Artist and Best Pop Release.

The ‘See U Somewhere Australia’ Tour has Ms Shark performing in more than 40 towns and cities across Australia.

Mr Morello said the show would be a welcome change to the lack of entertainment from the past two years.

“Everything in our industry has been delayed for some time now so we are just thrilled to have it up and running again,” he said.

Mr Morello added there is an extensive waiting list for the Amy Shark concert for tickets that may become available if any ticket holders find they are unable to attend.
