Two Saskatchewan shows for teen singing sensation Justin Bieber sold out in minutes Friday morning.

In Regina, some youngsters were keen to buy tickets in person and were in line for several hours, with parents in tow.

"We were actually here since seven this morning," Jen Rosa, in line with her daughter Serena, told CBC News Friday morning. As it turned out, showing up in person did not work out.

However, the family was ready for that.

"We also had someone manning the stations at home doing the computer and the phone," Rosa said. "So we got better tickets. But we just figured we better try every angle so that at least we got tickets somehow."

Bieber will perform in Regina Sept. 16 and in Saskatoon the following day.
