Tickets for a Reece Mastin show at the Greendale Hotel have sold out within just 48-hours – and as of this afternoon (Sunday) less than 20 tickets are left for a second show.

The UK-Aussie rocker and 2011 X Factor winner is heading to the pub on Saturday March 27 for a series of COVD-safe outdoor events that has been limited to 100 people each.

A pleasure to announce my friend Jess Mangan will support the band and I on the 27th and 28th of March at the Greendale…

Hotel operator Glen Papashalis said Mastin was the biggest recording artist he had booked in his time at the pub – and he was excited by the reaction.

“We would certainly be happy to organize a third show if Reece wants to do that,” he said.

“We’re anticipating the second show will be sold out very soon.

“In few weeks’ time we’ve also booked Creedence Clearwater Survival – a CCR cover band.

“Later in the year we’ll also have James Blundell here as well.”

Born in England and raised in Adelaide, Mr Papashalis said Mastin had now moved to the Macedon Ranges area – and had been playing with the likes of Jimmy Barnes and other Aussie rockers.

“I think he’ll appeal to the 25-to-35 year old age group. I guess we’re talking about people who were teenagers 10 years ago.”

Mastin won ARIA awards in 2012 for his songs ‘Good Night’ and ‘Shut Up & Kiss Me’.

When he took out Seven’s X Factor in November 2011, then then-16-year-old won a recording contract with Sony Music Australia.

Within 24-hours of its release his winning song ‘Good Night’ had sold more than 30,000 units – mainly via digital download.

At one point, Sony said he was selling a copy every 2.7 seconds.

It debuted at number 1 on the ARIA chart and eventually sold 350,000 copies.
