SJ Concert Online Sales in December, Not Afraid to Clash with Sub-Unit SJ-M
China Times [Ye Yixin/Taipei]
Super Junior’s (SJ), with the earth-shattering hit “Sorry, Sorry”, sub-unit SJ-M will be coming to Taiwan on December 5th and 6th to hold their fan meetings, which may clash with pre-order ticket sales period for SJ’s February 20th concert in Taipei Arena next year. SJ’s organizers, Super Dome expressed that currently the pre-order period has not been decided, but they are not worried of a clash since fan meetings and concerts are different, and SJ ticket price is slightly lower as well.
Pre-ordering of tickets for the mosh pit* area is expected to begin in December. Worried that fans may queue overnight (to get tickets), organizer Super Dome has decided to turn to the internet pre-ordering system instead. After fans have registered as a Dome member, they would be able to carry out internet booking. Through computer system selection, tickets with printed numbers will be sent out 15 days before the start of the concert, preventing scalping**.
Super Dome spokesperson Hou Wenyan pointed out that scalpers have recently tried to purchase 3,000 tickets, but were sternly denied by Dome. “Each person can purchase 4 tickets only, we will thoroughly filter through information for suspicious scalpers”. Hou Wenyan indicated that there are about 2,000 mosh pit tickets, fans who are unable to get the pre-ordered tickets will be able to purchase tickets when sitting area tickets go on sale.

* – standing area before the stage
** – tickets sold by scalpers are exceptionally high and normally they target fans without tickets outside concert venues. Another point to note is that they may not be selling real tickets
