Washington: Take That band has been left surprised after fans snapped up more than a million tickets in a day for their 2011 European tour.

The tickets had gone on sale early on Friday (29 Oct’ 10) and agents struggled to keep up to the fan`s unprecedented demand.

"We are speechless, truly and utterly shocked. This is the most amazing news for all of us. To sell one million tickets in a day is mind blowing and we think we`ll be in shock for a few days," Contactmusic quoted singer Gary Barlow as saying.

As a result of the ticket rush, the group has added more dates at venues including the City Of Manchester Stadium and London`s Wembley Stadium.

The tour will begin in Sunderland, England on 30 May (2011).
