Concert tickets for BTS’ (방탄소년단) “Love Yourself” world tour in Singapore won’t go on sale until this Saturday (27th October), but ARMYs already eagerly waiting in line!
The popular South Korean boy group will be performing at the National Stadium on 19th January 2019. The New Paper reported that at least 10 fans were already sitting near the box office booths at Kallang Wave Mall yesterday.
Ms Toh Sohyee told the publication that she was at the scene approximately 9am and plans to stay there till Saturday morning when tickets officially go on sale at 10am. The 20-year-old university student explained that she was scared that tickets might be snapped up by scalpers and prices will shoot up. That’s what she experienced during KBS Music Bank World Tour in Singapore previously.
BTS was part of the line up in the K-pop mega concert. Ms Toh shared that scalped tickets for that particular concert went up to S$1,000, adding: “I saw the prices just going up, up, up.”
On the other hand, Ms Jasmine Choong, 19, a student, shared that she and her friends will be on standby with at least 4 laptops and her parent’s credit cards. “My parents are good sports, they are helping us to try for tickets also,” she said.
Having said that, concert organiser One Production has stated that Sports Hub will not entertain any queueing before 4pm on 26th October. ARMYs who attempt to proceed may be stopped by security. “Queueing at the box office or outlets does not guarantee you will secure a ticket,” said One Production.
Tickets are priced at S$348, S$268, S$238, S$198, S$148, S$118 and S$88 (excluding booking fees). Fans can snag the tickets online at www.sportshubtix.sg, via hotline on +65 3158 7888 or at the Kallang Wave Mall ticketing booth, The Star Performing Arts Centre box office, Scotts Square, and all SingPost outlets.
