Big Bang recently proved their high popularity by crashing a website server after only 30 seconds of selling tickets for their Indonesian concert.
On June 12, according to YG Entertainment, Big Bang will hold their concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, on October 13 and the tickets for the concert sold out as soon as they put them on sale on June 9.
An Indonesian online media outlet said, “Tickets for Big Bang’s first Indonesian concert sold out. All tickets were booked after only 10 minutes on Ticket.com and over 50,000 people crashed My Ticket server only in 30 seconds after selling the tickets.”
A local official said that the ticket site restored its server and started selling the tickets again but they sold out in less than an hour.
A spokesperson for the agency said, “After the group toured Japan, we started selling tickets for their world tour in Indonesia. Even though they are not performing in Indonesia, they showed off their dignity as a K-pop representative.”
