More than 60,000 people rush to purchase tickets for Tom Holland's two-hour sellout run on the West End.

Tom Holland's West End return sold out in just over two hours as 60,000 fans scrambled for tickets to his turn in Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. 

The frenzy for tickets for his 12-week run, starting May 11 until August 3, began at midday on Tuesday, with all tickets seemingly gone by 2pm. 

An earlier rush saw over 50,000 eager theatregoers lining up for access to pre-sale tickets starting at 8am. 

Fans likened the scramble for tickets to the rush of securing seats for Taylor Swift's Eras tour, which sold 4.35 million tickets across 60 tour dates. 

Holland's loyal fans expressed frustrations on X, airing concerns about missing out on witnessing his stage prowess firsthand. 

"Now why are there 25,000 people in front of me in the queue to get these Tom Holland Romeo and Juliet tickets? This isn’t the eras tour," one fan wrote. 

Another lamented, "Getting tickets to Tom Holland’s Romeo & Juliet is starting to feel like eras tour trauma." 

A third commented, "28,664 people in front of me. There's no way I'm getting tickets, am I? I just wanna see my man (Tom Holland)."
