Tickets for the musical phenomenon, which re-imagines the world of the Wizard of Oz, went on sale at 8am this morning.
The show will run at the King’s Theatre, Glasgow from May 6 to May 31 2014.
Kirsteen Kyle, 33, from Cumbernauld, began queuing before 6am for tickets and was the first in line.
She said: “I have seen the show before on Broadway for a friend’s 30th birthday and I didn’t want to see it anywhere else but then I saw it in London in January last year and it was totally amazing. It’s great it’s here on our doorstep.”
Gerry Bitten-O’Prey, 41, from Dennistoun, said: “I have seen it in London and I love it. My husband gave me the music and when we got married we had a Wicked themed wedding.”
Music tutor Leeanne Douglas, 22, from Wellhouse, said: “I teach singing in the East End and I love it. I’ve been to London and seen it there and I want to see it here.”
Shona Smillie, 21, from Robroyston, said: “I’m just here for the one song, Defying Gravity.”
Laurie Noone, 37, from West Lothian, said: “I just love the show. My wife made me come to get tickets so I’m doing a good deed for her.”
Fans began queuing before 6am to get tickets for the show and were treated to coffee and cakes. The first 100 customers also received a CD of the Wicked soundtrack.
The record breaking show is based on the novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire.
It has already been seen by more than 36 million people worldwide.
Michael McCabe, executive producer of Wicked (UK and Ireland), said: “It’s amazing to see what’s going on. We always knew that the show had quite a fanbase from the number of people that come to London to see it but no-one quite knows what to expect and when I saw pictures of the queues this morning it was better than we could have hoped for.
"I think the response has been unprecedented, it feels very special. It seems that we are on course for a quick sell-out, which is tremendous.
“I hope that we get a reaction like this elsewhere. Every premiere we do in a new country is exciting so having the Scottish premiere in Glasgow gives it such a wonderful edge and it does seem to be a show that Glasgow audiences have wanted for a long time.”
The executive producer has also not ruled out a return for the show after its four week run ends.
He said: “We may come back, never say never. I wish we could stay longer this time but it is four weeks and I can only urge people to buy tickets and come see it.”
