Singer Taylor Swift is very stunned that she sold out a 20,000 ticket concert in a matter of minutes, because she was convinced "no one would come". The star has booked Los Angeles California sports arena the Staples Center for a show in May, one month after she kicks off her Fearless tour. Taylor slashed ticket prices to help fans cope with the world’s struggling economy, setting the cheapest tickets for the U.S. and Canada dates at $20. Taylor is admitting that she feared booking such a big venue for her first headlining tour would be too much of a risk, until show bosses told her tickets were a very hot commodity. She says, "I’m freaking out. I can’t even believe it. I started screaming because we thought it was a big risk to go to L.A. for the first headlining tour and go to the Staples Center, this big, huge venue. And then I got a call from my booking agent two minutes after it went on sale, like, ‘Oh, by the way, it’s sold out.’ I had a closet fear that no one would come."
