Today was the day, Swedish House Mafia opened the gates to their One Last Tour and won the Internet.
Selling out shows like it’s nothing, it was only a matter of minutes before others were added.
In a set up extremely well prepared and executed the Swedish group, who announced it was its last tour, had OneLastTour.comgrabbing all the attention of people from New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, rushing to Ticketmaster to order tickets for a tour starting in February, 2013.

Billboard.biz ads that incredibly, the group has done this with total U.S. album sales of 57,000 units and total track sales of 897,000 units, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The trio’s two New York shows in March — Madison Square Garden (they were the first DJ act to headline the arena) and Barclays Center — sold out in less than 8 minutes, precipitating the addition of a two more Brooklyn shows (March 3 sold out, the March 4 date is on sale now).
Chicago. Holy shit. Never seen anything like this. Go go go— Swedish House Mafia (@swedishousemfia) September 28, 2012
A similar scenario played out in Chicago, where the group’s Feb. 20 gig at the United Center sold out in 5 minutes. Three nights were added in San Francisco (Feb. 13, 14 and 15) along with a second show in Los Angeles on March 8.
