Sleep Token have confirmed that all tickets for their huge headline show at London’s Wembley Arena sold out in just ten minutes earlier this week.
The mysterious rock group announced their biggest ever headline show at Wembley Arena on May 31 after teasing the gig across social media.
Tickets for the show went on sale Friday (June 2) and sold out quickly.
“All ten thousand tickets for the Wembley Ritual have been swiftly and feverishly depleted, within ten minutes of general release today. Your dedication is noted, and appreciated,” wrote the band. “Come December, we shall gather.”

“I’ll call them metal, but there’re so many different levels and layers [to the music]. There’s pop elements, there’s jazz elements. I love the fact that nobody really knows who they are. I love the fact that they don’t want to be known,” said Taylor.
“There are hints of early, early Slipknot there,” he continued. “At first we were like, ‘Nope. You get nothing. This is what you get, you figure it out. We’ll let the music speak for ourselves’.”
Speaking to NME earlier this year, Taylor said Sleep Token were one of a handful of new heavy bands still inspiring him alongside Turnstile and Bad Omens. “You can feel them leaning into the passion. There’s a whole new generation of bands that are starting to come up that are carrying the flag for heavy music,” he said.
He went on to deny being Sleep Token’s masked singer Vessel though. “Listen, I’ve got more than enough going on. I don’t need a fourth band.”
Sleep Token are due to appear at Reading & Leeds Festival this summer as part of a European festival run before their own US headline tour.
