Tickets for K-pop group BTS' upcoming concert in Singapore went on sale and unsurprisingly sold out within four hours.
In the lead-up to the announcement that the show had been sold out, the Singapore Police Force released several warnings to ticket-buyers and BTS fans to be cautious of scalpers and third-party resellers. While many fans got their tickets from the official ticketing partners, a large amount of the sold-out tickets were purchased by scalpers, with images of scalper-purchased tickets circulating the Internet. It was also alarming to many that a single buyer was allowed to purchase up to eight tickets at a time.
Scalpers have since begun reselling tickets on third-party ticket site StubHub, with tickets for the highly-anticipated show going for as high as S$12,888. The original price for CAT 1 tickets was S$348. It is currently unknown if scalper tickets will be voided and if additional tickets will be put on sale. Stay tuned to Bandwagon for more updates.
BTS is set to perform at the National Stadium, Singapore on 19 January 2019.
