+ Tickets for both nights officially sold-out (as announced by RITS).
+ Added confirmed news from RITS that the Girls will be doing a 2nd show on the 10th of December 2011 at 6pm (same venue).
Yesterday (29/10/11) was the start of the SNSD Concert priority ticket sale for Singaporean OCBC cardholders and Samsung mobile phone users. So, how do you think the ticket sales went ?
Would you believe all 5500 tickets for the event sold-out within the morning itself 😉 ?!!
That’s right, the powerful attraction of our favourite 9 ladies was such that tickets disappeared as soon as official ticket sales opened (think SM Town Paris 2011, SNSD Taiwan Concert 2011) ! The actual time that it took to sell out cannot be officially confirmed, considering ticket bookings were spread over 3 different avenues (phone booking, online booking via the SISTIC website, physical queuing at the 34 SISTIC counters spread all over the island of Singapore), but a good guess would be between 5 minutes to 8 minutes maximum.
Although single tickets were still available for purchase intermittently over the course of the morning, until the early part of the afternoon (just before 1pm, if I am not mistaken ;)), the whole concert was effectively sold-out from the word “go“.
All this has caused a fair bit of unhappiness among Singapore SONEs unable to secure tickets to witness the 9 earthly angels live on stage (especially so since some of them actually queued up overnight outside the ticketing booths, some as early as 19 hours before the official ticket sales start 😉 !); not to mention the many regional and international SONEs hoping to secure tickets when public sales start on 1st November 2011. This, unfortunately, is highly unlikely now :(.
Being at “ground zero”, so to speak, I was able to “witness”, in a sense the frustration felt by the SONEs who failed to get tickets to the event. The RITS Facebook page was literally swamped with comments criticizing the whole ticketing process in general, and the SISTIC system, in particular.
Matters were not helped by opportunistic “SONEs” (NOT) offering to sell tickets (that they somehow managed to obtain) at blackmarket prices (there were “rumours” of the front row seats going for up to S$2000 !).
To that end, credit goes to RITS, who offered the olive branch of a possible 2nd date for the Singapore leg of the Girls’ 2nd Asian Tour, although nothing concrete has officially surfaced yet ;), the matter being highly dependent on SM and the Girls’ pre-planned schedules.
So, for the moment, all the S-SONEs (not to mention the regional and international SONEs) who failed to get tickets can hope to do is pray for a 2nd date to be added.
As for the successful SONEs who managed to secure tickets to this historic event, planning now begins to make sure the 9 ladies’ visit to the sunny island of Singapore is a pleasantly memorable one indeed :D.
*The 2nd show is on (as confirmed by RITS today – see link), so SONEs, check-out the booking details and grab your tickets now 😀 !!!*
**Tickets for both nights are all officially sold. The Girls will be facing a fully-packed Indoor Stadium for the 2 concerts. WooHoo !**

Singapore is crazy!!! They really love Soshi!! Hopefully that 2nd concert date becomes a reality and those poor S-Sones who missed out can get another chance.
Were you able to get tickets, Kenneth? 😀
Yes, thankfully :D. The process was extremely stressful, though 😉 !
Lucky you. I was planning to attend at least one K-Pop concert in my life for the experience and the thrills. However, seeing as to how the tickets sold like hotcakes, the chances of me acquiring even the cheapest ticket available seems incredibly slim. Of course, there are alternatives, like purchasing the outrageously-priced tickets from seedy individuals in the black market, but I’d rather save the money for something with a more tangible benefit.
Thank goodness for fan-cameras, but they’re still outclassed by the real thing.
so near yet so far…I”M LIVING IN MALAYSIA!!!!
wanted to go so much but….unfortunately…T.T
have fun singaSones!! 😀
SNSD, fighting! ^^
Same here… also from M’sia
I hope the girls have fun at Singapore!!! and sones also
Glad I was able to get my tickets, Looking forward to see the girls in December! 🙂
RITS maybe asking for a second night as well!! Demand high!!
8 minutes?!!? Wow!
There is an unofficial news that our 9 ladies will held a concert in Hong Kong @ Asia World Expo on 15th Jan 2011… I guess it is also very difficult to secure a seat… Many SONEs from Taiwan and China are planning to go for the HK concert~~~

SNSD are my 9 genies said:
congrats to those who were able to get the tickets! I hope they do have a 2nd concert for the unlucky sones though…just as long as the girls aren’t too tired or swamped with other schedules!
Sistic system sucks.. now everywhere sones or not selling tickets in black market prices, the cheapest is $280. and they claimed that they are kind hearted to offer us this price and get the tickets.. many of the sellers admit they get it thru SIstic workers.. Sucks.. cant imagine this scenario happened in Singapore.. I gave up going even though I want to see 9 angels so much.. but I hate especially Sones who sucks money from other sones while claiming us who not willing to buy is not true sones..
those suck money are NOT SONES, the venue itself is too small..5500 tickets only.. i bought a samsung phone jus so i could buy the tickets on priority day..lucky…went all the way to singapore from malaysia..5 hours go and 5 hours back.. if the girls can go through all that pain and endure..us sones can do it too..
next stop bangkok..hopefully the flood is over by next year..if not..malaysia should take the oppurtunity and have it in malaysia…you want money malaysia…here’s ur oppurtunity…
YESSSS I GOT MY TICKETS !!!
Right in the center front too XXXXDDDDD
Hope everyone going will have an awesome time!
But I must say the priority booking is a joke… it’s simply not exclusive enough though they were the sponsors and the offer of 6 tickets per person in such a small venue is simply asking for “black market prices” to happen… The ugliness of our citizens mentality has rear its head once more…
Additional show is ON!
GRAB YOUR TICKETS this time round :>
I read from Soshifields Facbook Wall:
“A 2nd night for the Girls’ Generation Tour in Singapore has just been announced by organisers Running Into The Sun! It will be held on 10 Dec 2011, 6 PM.”
Wish there will be also 2nd night in Hong Kong~
