Shinhwa tickets sell like hotcakesShinhwa's comeback concert tickets sold out in 40 minutes after being released on Feb. 13. Tickets for concerts taking place on March 24 and 25 to mark the band's 14th year since debut were highly sought after even before they went on sale. A total of 20,000 concert tickets for the two-day event set a new record for ticket sales on interpark.com. The band pocketed two billion won ($1,783,319) from their sale.
"Despite the fact that Interpark activated all the servers on its Web site, there was still chaos as a surge of people tried to connect," said a representative from Shinhwa Company.
The company also advised fans that if they wanted a ticket, they should put themselves on the waiting list at Interpark instead of trying to buy from scalpers online, as some refunds and cancellations are expected following ticket purchases.
"We just want to thank all our fans for making our comeback after four years such a memorable event. We promise to treat you to the best show ever," said Eric from the band.
