Like we didn’t know this was going to happen!
Tickets for Detroit Legend Anita Baker’s first Detroit concert in more than 10 years went on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, and within minutes the majority of them had been snatched up.
Through Ticketmaster, only a handful of “Official Platinum” seats remained as of Friday afternoon, at the cost of $400-$950 apiece.
Baker, who hasn’t performed in Detroit since 2010, took to social media to thank fans for selling out her show.
“Detroit. Some of You stood in Line, Early Outside… at An *Actual Box Office*, for your Tix. Some of you, in line/On line, at the Virtual Box Office. Wiping tears from my eyes, this morning,” she wrote on Twitter, signing the tweet, “ABXO.”
