The first round of pre-sales for K-pop’s biggest girl group Blackpink’s concert in Singapore began on Monday morning.
The quartet, which consists of Rose, Jenny, Jisoo and Lisa, will be the second K-pop act to play a show at the venue on May 13, when they will host the Singapore leg of the Bourne Pink Concert Tour at the National Stadium. Ever since BTS.
There will be two more pre-sales on Tuesday and Wednesday before general sales begin Thursday morning. Monday’s pre-sale was for members of his official international fan platform, Blackpink’s Weverse.
A few blinks – a nickname given to the group’s fans – The Straits Times signed up for the group’s Weverse with the express purpose of getting advance tickets, waited 15-30 minutes online and then got the tickets. I said I got in.
Among them is Joshua Yim, a sales manager at a wine company, who shares the US$23 (S$31.70) annual fee with his colleagues to secure a pair of tickets to the show.
“I didn’t want to risk going to a later presale or general sale, because with each round of the presale, tickets are running out,” says the 34-year-old. She taught herself how to choreograph Blackpink’s dances during the pandemic’s stay-at-home period.
The recent Taylor Swift ticket debacle convinced him that securing advance tickets was the best bet for hardcore fans.
General U.S. sales of the American pop star’s The Eras Tour were recently canceled after technical issues and overwhelming demand delayed the release of advance tickets. We have announced that we are running out of ticket stock for general sale.
“I don’t want to buy from the general sale when there are no tickets left,” Lim said.
About 60,000 people lined up in a virtual queue to buy Blackpink tickets, said Yim, who said the process went off without a hitch. He got in line around 11:50 a.m., just five minutes after his standard Weverse member sale started at noon, and at 12:05 p.m. He bought two tickets.
The early bird sale for Weverse members starts at 10am. Such memberships were only available for a limited time after Blackpink joined his Weverse in December 2021.
Wang Tingyun, a 35-year-old Taiwanese who plans to fly to Singapore with her boyfriend to see Blackpink here, says she prefers Singapore’s ticket system to Taiwan’s. .
BLACKPINK will hold a concert in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in March, and she will also participate. Tickets for that show reportedly sold out in seconds.
A restaurant chain owner said, “The Taiwanese chain didn’t have a queuing system, so when we all went in at the same time to buy tickets, the system crashed. The Singaporean one couldn’t even queue. I didn’t know you could queue before the sale started at noon, I happened to log in around 11:50 am and found out I could start queuing at 12:10 pm. When we bought the tickets, the tickets we wanted were sold out.”
She initially aimed for either Category 5, the most expensive seat ticket at $328, or a front-row VIP ticket at $398, but settled on standing pen tickets at $248 each.
Vietnamese IT consultant Josh Ho will also be in town to meet his idol.
The 27-year-old, who bought two Category 3 tickets for $248, said the presales were competitive. “I joined their membership after hearing that members would have exclusive access to pre-sales of their tours. I don’t think the general public will have much chance of getting tickets even if they try.”
Live Nation declined to disclose the percentage of tickets left after the start of Monday’s pre-sale. I’m here. The official full capacity of the National Stadium is 55,000.
Jean-Francois Susbielle, a retired engineer in his 60s from Singapore, wanted to get tickets for his 10-year-old granddaughter on Monday, but it didn’t work out.
