Amazing. I wish it weren’t so hard to get tickets. I’ve had to pay way more than normal price for two shows now. Hoping of better luck next time.

I need someone to hook me up with BigHit stock asap

nice. Next tour add more dates or bigger venues and it’ll be even more. I’d have gone to a second night if I could’ve gotten tickets but alas it was an act of god to even get tickets or the seats I got for the one show I went to.

bigHit or more than likely tour promoter PowerHouse has consistently ignored the SouthEast the last 2 tours. Florida and Georgia need a show. I was hoping for the Amway in Orlando this last go round but now it looks like if we get anything it will be a stadium in Miami or Tampa. I know we could fill an arena for sure after going to a sold out showing of Burn The Stage so I don’t know what’s up.

Get those coins, BTS.

Also, I've read that the sale for that car thing went up like crazy thanks to BTS's promotion. This is insane XD

what car thing?

BTS were recently appointed global ambassador (whatever it means) for Hyundai's latest SUV and the first day sales/pre-orders for that car are said to be really high.

As pinklunacy said above, BTS has been promoting Hyundai's car very recently (I mean, a couple of days ago) and idek how they managed that but apparently the sales skyrocketed. I'm just wtf at this news. The cheer power is insane, lol. They could sell sand into the desert at this point XD

I read that too, and I couldn't believe my eyes. I mean... we're talking about a car lol
lydzi 1st-Dec-2018 02:47 pm (UTC)
IKR? People are truly buying suv's like they are abums rn, what is this reality? XD

now imagine if they actually did something about the scalpers :/ then again, I guess there's no initiative when they get this kind of money anyway

Also doing only _two_ shows in Korea is crazy /still bitter

The scalping was INSANE!!! No one cares either, they need to put a 4 ticket max limit too.
mecchayabai 1st-Dec-2018 10:38 am (UTC)
seriouslyyyy... i'm not even kidding, i hadn't event been able to access the goddamn interpark website by the time first tickets had been added to ticketbay

It's actually ridiculous how much money they're throwing away, for as much as they make. People shit on Taylor Swift's "dynamic pricing" ticket strategy, but it worked. She got record revenues out of her tour and the percentage of her tickets that appeared on the secondary re-sell market went from about 30% down to 3%.I'm not even a fan of her btw (she annoys me but I respect her business sense).

She had to endure shit headlines like "Taylor Swift's Tour is in Trouble! She hasn't sold out a single show yet!" which... is the point. General rule of thumb: If you sell out all your tickets in the first day of sales (let alone the first hour or even first few minutes)... you UNDERPRICED your tickets.

Taylor's stadium shows used to generate ~$5 mill per on 1989 tour but with this switch in pricing strategy, she went to ~$7 million per stadium show, so +40% and she was touring in support of a significantly less successful album.

tldr; When I read headlines like "BTS sell out 4 Staples Centre shows in 10 minutes" I am not THAT impressed. Like, yea it's a fuck ton of tickets so good for them, but they could make more, which means my future husband, Park Jimin, could also make more! ;)

it's ridiculous that not more acts do this, that makes so much sense financially and it'd be much better for fans too :( i don't know that much about the us/europe dates, but in korea the tickets were ridiculously underpriced. I would happily pay something like 200-300e for good seats if I knew that money was actually going to the artist, not to some scalper...
