The bad news is that all the tickets for Rosalía's concert at Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi stadium on December 7 have already sold out. The good news is that the Catalan singer has announced another performance at the same venue the next day.

Earlier in the week, tickets for Rosalía's first ever solo performance in front of a mass audience in Catalonia sold out within two hours. However on Friday, the singing sensation announced an extra night in the Catalan capital the following day.

Tickets for the additional date in the 18,000-capacity Palau Sant Jordi are likely to go just as fast when they officially go on sale on Monday at 10am on the LiveNation website, and at 1pm on Ticketmaster and El Corte Inglés. 

The announcement of the additional concert comes after reports that some tickets for the first concert, which cost between 28 and 65 euros, were being offered for resale on a number of non-official online platforms for over 1,000 euros. 

The performances in Barcelona, and another sold-out concert in Madrid on December 10, bring Rosaía's 'El mal querer' tour to an end, which has seen the singer from the Catalan town of Sant Esteve Sesrovires perform in the US, Portugal, the UK and Switzerland.

Rosalía's December concerts will be the first large-scale solo performance the rising star has given in her homeland. While the singer performed in Barcelona before more than 60,000 people in June, the concert was part of the Primavera Sound music festival. 

The 25-year-old star has continued to rise this year, with the video for her song 'Con altura', with J Balvin, bagging her two MTV awards. Before that, last November, the singing sensation was awarded two Latin Grammys for her hit song, ‘Malamente’.
