BLACKPINK in your area!
The fever for the popular K-pop girl group is heating up as fans are snapping concert tickets like hot cakes. While some have managed to secure tickets, many others are frustrated at MacpiePro website system.
Ticket sales went live at 12pm today (Wednesday, 12th December). Fans either had the option of purchasing tickets online or buying it in person at any of these 7 locations previously announced.
To recap, Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé will be performing Malawati Indoor Stadium, Shah Alam on 23rd February 2019 (Saturday). Tickets are priced at RM693 (BLINK Zone), RM673 (Red Zone), RM573 (Yellow Zone), RM483 (Purple Zone), and RM373 (Green Zone).
As expected, scalpers are at it again. A quick look at StubHub and Viagogo show that tickets are being resold at outrageous prices. For example, tickets for Red Zone (which cost RM 673) have already been bought even though they were resold for more than RM1000 each!
The most expansive zone – BLINK Zone – which only costs RM693 per ticket is being resold for more than RM3000 on StubHub Malaysia. If you think that’s insane, someone on Viagogo Malaysia is selling their BLINK Zone tickets for more than RM7000!
Judging from BLACKPINK’s popularity, we won’t be surprised if the girl group’s concert tickets for their Kuala Lumpur show sell out. It’s only a matter of time.
UPDATE (13th December):
Viagogo Malaysia has issued a statement saying that it “provides a platform for third party sellers to sell tickets to event goers. Viagogo does not set ticket prices, sellers set their own prices, which may be above or below the original face value. Where demand is high and tickets are limited, prices increase.”
