lucky j-sones, SM Town, three-thousand dollars for ONE TICKET?!, tokyo, world tour, yoyogi stadium
In less than 36 hours S.M. Town Live in Tokyo will kick off. Even if you’re not attending the concert you can anticipate new fan accounts, fancams and, of course, pictures!
Tickets for this show were difficult to come by, so for those lucky individuals whose ticket applications were selected
charge your camera, throw on some pink and get ready to have the time of your life! Japanese fans have exceeded the total ticket sales by sending in over 400,000 ticket applications. That’s more than 16x the available number of seats! An impressive feat for sure, but what really gets me is the shock those in charge of ticket selection and distribution experienced when they realized just how much interest the concert was garnering…I mean really, we’re talking Girls’ Generation, SHINee, Super Junior, TVXQ, BoA, and f(x), to name a few – why the surprise? 😀 Officials were encouraged by the excitement displayed by fans and are highly anticipating tomorrow’s and the next day’s performances. Fans whose ticket applications weren’t chosen have attempted to snag seats by means of bidding websites where prices for tickets soared into the thousands (in US $). Such tickets were nearly 10x more expensive than the original selling price of around $300 (358,974 Won or 26, 500 yen). In addition to surpassing initial expectations, the S.M. Town Live concert will be the first to feature artists all under the same company in Japan.
S.M. Town Live in Tokyo will be held at the National Yoyogi stadium on January 25th and 26th. Now…let the fanchants begin!!

wow… SM is truely getting richer by each group n concerts… man,i wish im dat rich…xD
I hope be there with pink colour. But too far away and the ticket 😮 I hope I rich too…
haha next time SM can consider holding the SMTown concert for a whole month to satisfy all the fans in Japan!…they’ll rake in 120 million if they do that then probably they can rest for the rest of the 11 months!=)
Is it gonna be live on any website or streamer!!? Why can’t it be in Singapore!!? SMTown fighting!! Our girls must be training very hard now!! FIGHTING!! We’ll be anticipated!!
Wow, don’t I feel lucky about being able to see SMTown for a lot less than 10x the $300 ticket.

Owaaa, SMTOWN Tokyo must be really bombastic with Girls Generation on the stage…
Right now SONE, forever SONE…
wowww thousand + omg!!
I can pretty much feel at ease without having to spend over a thousand dollars for a ticket. I thought the overpriced S$400 for a ticket last time during the K-Pop Night concert was bad.
Can’t wait for a future concert here though.
Same here, Terrez 😉 ! I wish they’d deem it fit to hold a simliar concert here, but featuring just the “9 angels” only, of course 😀 😀 😀 !!!! Now, wouldn’t that be something 🙂 ?!!
Woot! Another SM Town~ Can’t wait for fancams and fanaccounts 😀
They should rent a bigger place.
awsome hehe cant w8t SM artist fighting!! luv u SNSD! 🙂
According the official site, the original ticket price was 12,800 yen + 450 yen system fee (13,250 yen). You were able to purchase up to two tickets. I think 26,500 yen come from there.
400k applications just so they can be included to be a potential buyer for a ticket…which doesn’t guarantee a person availability for a ticket. that’s WOW :)!!!
Damn! SM is making LOADS!!! O.O
Well I’ll be waiting for fancams since that’s all I can do.
SM Town Hwaiting!! 😀
SNSD’s arrival in japan…its funny how that one guy wanted to peek on Taengoo :)…and i wonder what the other press guy asked sooyoung?
saw the rumoured set lists for SMTown tokyo: “Oh” japanese version is on the line up…can’t wait to see fancams to see if its true! and they are rumoured to perform both “Genie” and “Gee” in japanese along with Etude and another song.
no suprise with boa n tohoshinki already have their own fans there plus with snsd popularity n japan fans already wait for shine n fx is there!
I bet the fans came mostly for SNSD.. the other bands’ fans are nowhere close to the numbers of SONEs. If you take SNSD out of the lineup, I bet you can still get tickets right before the concert.. 😀
fancam of the ending song…no other fancams regarding SNSD yet. the fans are probably still spazzing at home that’s probably why the delays of fancams, etc. and a photo inside the yoyogi stadium…u can see lots of pink!
