Fans Struggle to Get Tickets to Big Bangs Upcoming Concert

Fans Struggle to Get Tickets to Big Bangs 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.

Fans Struggle to Get Tickets to Big Bang′s Upcoming Concert

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.

Big Bang Adds Another Date to Their 2014 Concert for Fans Who Couldn't Get Tickets

Big Bang Adds Another Date to Their 2014 Concert for Fans Who Couldn't Get Tickets

Big Bang Adds Another Date to Their 2014 Concert for Fans Who Couldnt Get TicketsUpon requests from fans, Big Bang has added an additional date to their originally 2-day 2014 BIGBANG +α IN SEOUL concert, to be held at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium on January 25 and 26.

The tickets for this upcoming concert were sold out as soon as ticket sales were opened, and it became hard even for YG employees to come by tickets. At the passionate requests of fans who weren’t able to get tickets, Big Bang added another performance on January 24 at 8pm.

An official at YG commented, “On the day of the ticket pre-sale, ‘Naver clock,’ ‘world standard clock,’ and ‘Big Bang,’ were the most-searched words on portal sites, which was in part due to fans who wanted to get on the site at the exact time for Big Bang’s concert tickets.”

This will be the first time in a year that the five members of Big Bang get together on stage in Korea since their concert earlier this year, “Live Galaxy Tour The Final,” although the members gathered abroad on occasion for their Japan tour and the 2013 MAMA in Hong Kong.

As much as it is has been a year since their last performance in Korea, fans are intensely excited for this upcoming concert, which Big Bang has held annually since 2009 at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium. Moreover, this year, each of the members have grown even more through their solo activities, and it will be phenomenal to see how they’ve grown as a team, as well!
