Thousands of tickets to Fatboy Slim's latest Brighton beach gig were sold within hours of being released on general sale today.

Organisers said the Big Beach Boutique 4 concert on Saturday, September 27, was rapidly heading towards being a sell out.

The gig will be the first summer seafront performance by the Hove DJ, real name Norman Cook, since a crowd of 250,000 flocked to the city for a free concert in 2002.

It will be a much more controlled event, with only 22,000 tickets being sold exclusively to people with BN postcodes.

A similar trial concert for 19,000 people on New Year's Day 2007 sold out within hours.

Cook told The Argus his gigs in Brighton had been his proudest moments and he could not wait for the new event.
