    110817 20,000 tickets in Taiwan grabbed in a couple of hours despite glitchy ticketing system

    SNSD will be rocking the Taipei Arena in Taiwan once again this September!
    A total of 20,000 tickets for the two concerts, scheduled on September 10th and 11th, were sold out in under two and a half hours when they became available for sale last Saturday and many believed that it would have been a lot quicker if it wasn’t for the glitches in the ticketing system.

    Those who did not manage to get a ticket registered themselves on the waiting list immediately and within one day, the waiting list had exceeded 6,000 people. Thus, fans shook their heads at their bad luck and commented, “Some things cannot be bought with money.”

    To catch a glimpse of the girls in their second concert in Taiwan, after the first Asia Tour last year, many fans waited for hours before the tickets went on sale outside the thousands of convenience stores around Taiwan, where the ticketing kiosks were located.

    A lucky male fan, who managed to secure his concert ticket, said happily, “So what if I don’t have a girlfriend? It is enough to get a Zone C standing ticket in SNSD’s concert!”

    But not everyone was lucky enough to get a ticket to the concerts. Some braved the rain and skipped class or work just to line up at the convenience stores but mostly failed to get tickets due to the faulty ticketing system.

    An annoyed fan, who failed to get tickets twice in a row for two years, made a Hitler parody video with fictional Chinese subtitles to express her unhappiness with the ticketing system. The video has since accumulated over 200,000 views since last year with most viewers agreeing with her opinions on the matter.



    Another unhappy fan made yet another Hitler parody, where the famous historical figure angrily said, “I became a member (of the concert organizer Superdome) 800 years ago and yet I couldn’t get a ticket but those black market ticket sellers managed to do so!” and “The waiting list has exceeded 6,000 people. Isn’t this too much?”
