Soul superstar Prince has proved he is still a crowd-puller with tickets for his two upcoming concerts being sold out in less than eight minutes.

The tickets went on for sale Saturday and eager fans snapped up more than 7,000 tickets for his performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland later this month in just seven minutes and 58 seconds, reported contactmusic.com

The Purple Rain hitmaker will close the event with two consecutive shows July 18.

In 2007, Prince set a record after selling more than 4,500 concert tickets for the Swiss event in just 10 minutes.
