DBSK’s Tokyo Dome Concert Tickets Gone in 30 Seconds, Scalps Go for $1,000 USD
It took only 30 seconds for DBSK to sell out tickets to its Tokyo Dome concert scheduled from April 14 to 16. According to local media Sports Chosun, tickets to the concert went on sale on April 1 at 10AM, but all 175,000 tickets sold out in a mere 30 seconds. In addition, DBSK’s Osaka concert, to be held from April 21 to 23, also saw all 109,431 of its tickets run out of stock in less than two minutes, showing DBSK’s unfailing popularity in Japan.
Following the quick sellout, fans have been scrambling to get a hold of any ticket in sight. The tickets usually cost in between 8,500 yen ($102 USD) to 9,500 yen ($114 USD), but due to the high demand, scalp tickets have been going for as high as 10 times the face value, reaching nearly 80,000 yen, or $1,020 USD. This prompted DBSK to add one more concert to its schedule, but fans are still demanding for more seats.
