One Direction fans claim premature ejaculation

If Twitter is to be believed, Ticketmaster put the sale of One Direction tickets live a couple of minutes before the advertised time of 10am, which meant the tour sold out before it was supposed to be on sale.

It's more likely that the tickets went on sale at 10am, Ticketmaster time, and the people who logged on at the stroke of what they thought was 10 were actually coming to the party too late, but once again the question is: with tours you know are going to sell out, why persist in pretending you can recreate a queuing system online?
