Alicia Keys has proved a major attraction in Denmark - all of the 1,200 plus tickets for her concert at Copenhagen's ROYAL THEATRE were sold in just 16 minutes yesterday (29MAR04).

The 23-year-old R+B singer will perform on 16 June (04) on the theatre's main Old Stage, which dates from 1874.

Officials at the Royal Theatre say it is the first time ever that a pop star will perform there. The downtown playhouse dates back to 1770. Its repertoire includes classical drama, ballets, operas and concerts by philharmonic and chamber orchestras.

Earlier this month (MAR04), tickets for Sir Paul McCartney's show in western Denmark sold out in 11 minutes.
