Most tickets to her Oct. 11 performance — her very first in Alberta — seemed to sell out in a matter of seconds on Monday morning.

“High demand. No matches,” was the message on Ticketmaster almost immediately after the general on sale began at 10 a.m.

(Only several “platinum” seats, starting at $495 plus service charges, were still available at 1 p.m.)

Some Madonna fans voiced their disappointment on Twitter.

As of Monday morning, StubHub, a resale site, had listings for as many as 889 tickets available to her Oct. 11 show. Cheapest ticket: $96.99 (US). Most expensive? $7,545.25 (US).

There were at least three Madonna ticket presales last week — for fan club members, Northlands app users and Live Nation’s Facebook followers.

After Edmonton, the next stop on her Rebel Heart tour isn’t until Oct. 14 in Vancouver, so she could squeeze in a second Rexall show.

Rebel Heart, her 13th album, is out Tuesday.
