Hi,everybody.Recently I am confused with the use of "sell out"
If I want to say things are all sold,is that:
SENTENCE1
The tickets sold out within hours. OR The tickets have been sold out within hours.?
SENTENCE2
This week`s performances are completely sold out. OR This week`s performances sold out completely.?

and If I want to say sb has sold all things,is that:
SENTENCE1
We have sold out of bread. OR We are sold out of bread.?
SENTENCE2
We are sold out for the evening performance. OR We have sold out for the evening performance.?

Thank you!:):)

    The tickets sold out within hours. :tick:
    The tickets have been sold out within hours. :cross:

    With the other examples you can use either of the options.
