Yesterday (Tuesday, 4th September), concert organiser StarPlanet officially announced that all 36,000 tickets for Jacky Cheung’s 3-night shows have been sold out.

Ever since it was announced that the 57-year-old singer will be returning to Malaysia for his “A Classic Tour” encore performances, fans have been waiting in anticipation to see him live. Just like any popular sold-out concerts, reselling of tickets are bound to happen.

Due to the heavy online traffic on MyTicket.Asia, not everyone was able to secure tickets. In addition, a ticket launch was held at Quill City Mall Kuala Lumpur over the weekend for fans to take part in an exclusive early bird sale.

A quick look at Carousel and Viagogo Malaysia, and you’ll find scalpers making profit by reselling concert tickets at a much higher price. At Carousel, concert tickets range from RM650 to RM3000 per ticket. An original Gold class ticket costs RM988 but is now being sold at more than 3 times the price at RM3000.

Meanwhile at Viagogo, a Gold class ticket is being sold at a ridiculous price of RM5420! A Cat 3 ticket, for example, which costs RM488 is being sold for RM1395. It’s the same case for other ticket categories.

A word of caution to fans who are desperate to attend Cheung’s concert next month but don’t have tickets. StarPlanet will be imposing a new rule whereby the purchaser of the concert tickets are required to verify their IC or passport when entering the venue in Axiata Arena.

If you’ve bought tickets from a scalper but he/she isn’t attending “A Classic Tour”, chances are, you’ll be denied entry.
