After a gap of 364 days, Super Junior will be holding a concert in Malaysia once again, and the fans started another ticket-grabbing fever! 90% of the 9500 which the organizer had allocated as sold within a short span of 4 hours, and it is believed that during the period of the pre-sale (until 10PM on February 19), all the tickets will be completely sold out! Even so, the organizers have reiterated that they will not seek extra sessions!
Almost 2000 fans who came from far and near were already cramming into the Sungei Wang Plaza’s 6th floor on Saturday morning, in order to purchase the tickets for the Super Junior 《Super Show 3 in Malaysia》! When some of the Malay fans knew that they managed to grab tickets for the first row, they immediately burst into tears at the scene!
Although the ticketing session was originally set to begin at 10am, but because of the amazing situation under the presence of Malaysian, Indonesian, Thai and Singaporean fan groups, the time for the ticketing sales was brought forward to 9.45am. Among them, the most expensive tickets which costs RM486 was selling out at the fastest rate, and 1400 tickets were already sold within the first hour for the whole venue.
Although the online ticketing was set to begin on the 20th, but from the 18th, there were already some people selling scalped tickets for the VIP area on the internet, inviting heated discussion. The organizers immediately stood out and clarified that the VIP tickets are strictly not for sell. Apart from that, the tickets for the VIP area will only be released after the Korean officials (for the concert) verifies the name list. The SS3 concert in Malaysia’s production fees is up to more than RM 3 million, and would have a four-sided stage just like in Korea.
In order to grab tickets, fans brought food along and didn’t dare to use the toilets
Although the organizers were concerned about the fans’ safety on Facebook, and “disallowed” them from queuing overnight, but in order to grab the tickets for the best seats, the fans still came up with various ways.
It is understood that the hotels which were close to the Sungei Wang Plaza was already fully-booked by the overseas fans and also fans from other locations (in Malaysia), and quite a number of fans have been queuing up since 10am on Friday, but because they were driven off (by the security personnel) they were forced to loiter around the shopping complex. Since the 6th floor of the Sungai Wang Plaza would only be opened at 8am today (Saturday), a lot of fans who could not wait to get their tickets have already begun to loiter around the complex since yesterday night, and for the sake of queuing up, they even bought solid food along and didn’t dare to use the toilets. There are about 50 fans who indulged in an overnight karaoke session until 4am, then hid themselves within the shopping complex’s fire escape routes to avoid being chased out by the security personnel, all in order to “book” their places first at the main sales area on the 6th floor to grab their tickets.
However, before the fans fell into line, it could be said that the 6th floor was completely filled to the brim, eliciting complaints from the shopkeepers around, as they couldn’t even open up their shops to start off with their business. Nonetheless, under the instructions of more than 50 staff members and security personnel, the crowd was finally separated into two lines. Not only did they fill up the whole 6th floor of the shopping complex (up until the elevator doors), but the stairs next to GreenBox* was also full with people who were queuing up.
* GreenBox is the name of the karaoke outlet.
