The chance of obtaining a ticket to TFBOYS’ 10th-anniversary concert ticket is nearly impossible as prices sky-rocket.
Recently, a post reviewing the ticket purchase process for TFBOYS’ 10th-anniversary concert is gaining attention on social media. In the post, the author revealed shocking detail about the slim chance of getting a ticket, drawing massive attention.
On the ticketing application, nearly 5 million audiences are waiting for ticket sales, while the available seats are only 33,000. At a glance, the competition for a ticket is high.
Due to the audiences’ rising demand, scalpers on the black market are busy as ever. Many online discussions point out that the ticket for TFBOYS’ concert is hiked to an unimaginable number, reaching 2 million CNY (280,600 USD) for one ticket in the first five rows. Many Chinese and foreign fans are discouraged by the price.
A fan cried and said the price of a ticket was more expensive than a house in her hometown.
Disenchanted by the slim chance of buying a ticket from the official website and far more disillusioned by the price on the black market, many fans have given up their hotel reservations and passed on the chance to attend the concert to someone else.
TFBOYS’ 10th-anniversary concert will take place on August 6, 2023 – the day of the boy band’s debut – at the Xi’an Olympic Sports Center Stadium with a capacity of 60,000 people.
