The ticket sales for SNSD’s “Into New World 1st Asia Tour Concert in Taiwan” ended yesterday and the tickets were sold out, in just two and a half hours (accumulative from 2 days). It could have been faster if not for the ticketing site’s downtime for maintenance.
We’ve heard reports about fans being frustrated about the ticketing procedures, but nonetheless, the mighty pink ocean will be there in full turn out to greet our girls when they perform at Taipei Arena on October 16th.
On August 28th, 11,000 tickets were sold out in just within one and a half hour. 1000 tickets were put on sale the next day and it sold better than hot cakes when all 1000 of them were grabbed in just one hour.
TVBS News (Taiwanese media) even reported,”Overwhelming demand to watch SNSD’s concert in Taiwan caused the online ticketing site to crash. Within one and a half hour, all tickets were sold at the ticketing venue.”
It is still unknown if the organizers will be offering additional seats for the concert since there are many Superdome members who failed to get tickets through the online booking. The online booking was initially a privilege for the members but according to SONEs who are members of Superdome, it’s even more difficult to get tickets that lining up as one had to keep trying to get vacant seats and the availability is on first-come-first-serve-basis.
According to a poll on “Which Korean stars would like to see in Taiwan?”, the girls got the majority of votes. Thus, we expect the pink ocean would be as ‘vast’ as the previous two ITNW concerts in Seoul and Shanghai.
