Michael Jackson"s Concert Ticket Highest Price Ever

The ticket price of the 'Michael Jackson and Friends' concert, which will be held on June 25 at the Seoul Chamsil Olympic Stadium, broke the record in Korea at 300,000 won.
The concert promoter, Avram, announced on May 18 at a press conference that the ticket price of the 5,000 Premium seats is decided at 300,000 won and a Gold seat is 220,000 won while Silver and Regular are 120,000 and 80,000 won each.
The Cheil Communications said, 'We plan to give a 20 percent of every ticket to charity even in the event we suffer a loss.' However, the highest ticket price that is almost double the Premium seat price of Jackson's 1996 Seoul concert of 160,000 won, is likely to anger his fans.
Famous singers, including Gloria Estefan, Boyz 2 Men, Lionel Richie, Kenny G, Modern Talking, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Vanessa May and Roxette, will join this concert.
In the event all 63,000 tickets are sold out, the profit will reach 7 billion won, not including billions of the broadcasting charges and record sales income. All the profit will be contributed for the societies for charity work.
