Fans Struggle to Get Tickets to Big Bang′s Upcoming Concert
With the group returning as a whole in three years, Big Bang is still the talk of the town amongst fans and the public.
Three years following the Still Alive album in June of 2012 and a year and three months after the Big Bang +a in Seoul concerts, Big Bang announced a return with concerts in Seoul, receiving a passionate response.
On April 6, when the first round of ticketing to Big Bang′s Big Bang 2015 World tour in Seoul with Naver began, ′Big Bang concert′ became the number one searched on portal sites with related keywords also ranking high on the charts. It was the same way on April 7, when the second round of ticketing took place. The concerts tickets were sold out on both days within a matter of minutes with servers crashing.
The popularity of Big Bang was seen not just online, but offline as well. An agency rep from YG Entertainment recently met with enews, saying, "As it′s a concert held by Big Bang in a long time, the interest in it is as great as ever." The rep continued, "We′re being flooded with inquries on ways to get tickets."
The amount of inquiries to the company is growing as it′s getting more and more difficult to get tickets even with money. In recent times, the agency stopped giving out invitational tickets as it did in the past. It′s come to the point that invitational tickets cannot be given out with so many fans struggling to get tickets, which are already set at a high price.
"There are already many people who are willing to pay money to get tickets but the circumstances aren′t in their favor," said the agency. "We feel apologetic but we′re also very grateful that we′re able to confirm that the interest in Big Bang is still there."
Big Bang will hold its Big Bang 2015 World Tour in Seoul with Naver on April 25 and 26 at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Hall.
