ARMYs In Dismay As BTS’ Concert Tickets Sold Out Even Before Going On Sale!
You think you can still cop tickets to BTS' upcoming concert?
Not long after the news of BTS's upcoming concerts in Los Angeles, California went viral on the internet, ARMYs (the fandom name of BTS) were excited to finally see the HYBE Label's seven-member K-pop boy group perform live.
Notably, ARMYs and netizens were ready monetarily, emotionally, mentally, and physically to buy the tickets, a lot of people were shocked as tickets were already sold out before truly going on sale to the public.
As of writing this article, a couple of days ago on the 7th and 8th of October, a limited number of fans were able to purchase tickets to all four of the "Permission To Dance On Stage" dates as part of the BTS concert's pre-sale time frame.
Notably, the first day was supposedly for fans who bought a global membership and the second day was for Ticketmaster's verified fans presale. On the 9th of October, those who were not able to join in on the pre-sales for the BTS concert were really excited about the public sale.
But to the shock of BTS fans, Ticketmaster announced sad news regarding BTS' ARMYs that were expecting to buy tickets. As per the Ticketmaster, all four concerts sold out in the pre-sale time and no public sale is going to be taking place.
To the surprise of no one, BTS' fans were saddened by the news and were even more upset by the prices the tickets were being resold for.
Instead of the tickets selling for $60-$450 USD per ticket (which is approximate ₩71,794-₩538,461 Korean won), fans noted that the resell tickets were now selling for $8,000 USD each, around ₩9,572,640 Korean won.
Some ARMYs even noted that a ticket for the BTS concert was being resold for $36,000 USD, which is ₩43,076,880 Korean won.
Netizens and fans who wanted to see BTS live will now have to settle for a virtual experience instead.
