Rock fans are being urged to buy the last few tickets for a Rock Festival as quickly as possible to avoid potential disappointment.
The Merseyside Rock Festival, a new innovation, is expected to sell out within the next few days, with a maximum of only 5000 tickets available for the three-day event from 19-21 October.
Rock fans have been eagerly anticipating the event, and have already snapped up more than half of the total allocation online, leaving organisers red-faced over a possible shortfall.
Ringo McCartney of the Liverpool Rock Club said:
"Some rock enthusiasts are bound to be disappointed. We hadn't envisaged that there would be this amount of interest. It's fantastic!"
A vast range of rocks will be on display, including slate, gravel, sand and shells, with samples from Neolithic and Paleolithic periods, as well as some rocks and bricks thrown during the Toxteth Riots during the summer of 1981.
Mr McCartney told how there had been some confusion last week, when some fans contacted him thinking the event was a music festival.
"Imagine!" he laughed.
