R&B superstar Beyonce has added an extra date to her tour stop in Ireland after the first three concerts sold out in 20 minutes this morning.

Disappointed fans that missed out on buying their tickets when they went on sale this morning will get a another chance to pick up the hottest tickets in town.

An extra date for the 12th of March has been added and will go on sale tomorrow at 9am.

Her dates for the 8th, 9th and 11th of March as part of The Mrs Carter Show World Tour at the 02 Dublin sold out.

The superstar's latest album has become the fastest ever seller on iTunes with more than 800,000 downloads in its first three days.

The self-titled album, the US superstar's fifth, was released out of the blue on Friday and includes 14 songs, 17 videos, and collaborations with husband Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean.

An Apple spokeswoman said the iTunes Store sold 828,773 albums in three days.

On the day of its release, iTunes - which is Apple's music download division - said the release was "an unprecedented strategic move by the artist to deliver music and visual content directly to her fans when she wants to and how she wants to, with no filter".

With no "middle man", fans are being encouraged to form their own opinions after listening to and watching the tracks.
