Prince has become the most searched for artist on StubHub U.K. following the 2014 Brit Awards, which took place on Wednesday night in London.
According to data compiled by StubHub, the legendary singer enjoyed a staggering 19,000 percent increase in searches after he plugged his upcoming secret gig in Manchester while presenting the award for Best British Female.
It’s likely the general public is hoping to score tickets to Prince’s Hit and Run tour which had been confined to London until the announcement of the Manchester show and which is offering tickets on a first come, first served basis, for 10 pounds or around 16 dollars.
On a separate list of acts who performed during the ceremony, Bruno Mars came in at #3 and received a 150 percent boost in searches following his electric performance of “Treasure.” A 37 percent increase following her soaring rendition “XO” helped push Beyonce to #7, just one slot above Katy Perry, who performed her Juicy J-assisted single “Dark Horse.”
