Darren Hayes Sells Out U.S. Gigs Within Minutes

Talk about "spin"... Darren Hayes' press agent announced yesterday that the singer's first U.S. shows in six years -- two gigs at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater in New York City on March 28 and 29 -- sold out in under 10 minutes. Apparently the first night was only known by Joe's Pub employees, and tickets sold out before it was announced to fans. After a second night was added, seats were gone after seven minutes.

“Our phones have been ringing off the hook ever since we put the Darren Hayes shows on-sale," said Bill Bragin, director of the venue, "which sold out faster than any show we have had in history. There is clearly a huge audience clamoring to see Darren here in the US. We even have people flying in from other States!”

Meanwhile, get yer cute gay, married butt out to L.A., Daz!

New poll up now in the sidebar.

    That shirt gives me serious back spasms.

    Do you think he'll start to write good music now? Or will it the same old attempts to sing I am so used to from Darren.

    At least JoesPub has a great little eaterie.

    I can't wait till he comes to LA! I've heard such good reviews about the NY shows.
    I'm so excited!
