Bruno Mars fans, you should know by now that tickets to his concert in Malaysia have, sadly, sold out
in just under an hour
The concert, scheduled to take place next year on 9 May at the Axiata Arena, is set to be a full house event, according to a statement released by PR Worldwide, the organiser of the concert:
Even though the tickets sales were carried out 10 months in advance
and also in the middle of the month when most of our pockets are anxiously waiting for the next pay cheque, this definitely didn’t deter many Malaysian fans’ undying semangat
to virtually queue up early in the morning to secure their tickets.
However, it is sad to note that some of these ‘semangat’ fans are actually scalpers.
Just an hour after the tickets sold out, these unauthorised sellers can be found selling off their tickets via StubHub
The price? Probably as much as Bruno’s 24k magic. Literally.
The price for the Category 1
tickets shot up to RM4,256
which was originally sold
for only RM888
via My Ticket Asia and PR Worldwide’s website. That’s almost FIVE times the original selling price! Crazy, right?
As for Category 2
and Category 3
, the prices have skyrocketed up to RM2,833.65
. The tickets were originally priced at RM598
Wow, even the cheapest category is being marked up to match Category 2’s price.
Despite the crazy price these scalpers putting on, what baffles us the most is, believe it or not, there are actually people who bought the tickets from them. Guess they’re very, very desperate to see Bruno Mars.
Well, if you're a die-hard fan of the Versace On The Floor
singer, his concert will probably be a Grenade
-inducing experience you’ll Treasure
the most since you probably said That’s What I Like
while you burn a hole in your pocket paying for the tickets.
For those who didn’t manage to get tickets to his show, we know you might be feeling as if you’re Locked Out of Heaven
, but take our advice, please don’t buy from scalpers but instead look for tickets to his show overseas as it is far more worth it.
So now, the countdown begins. See you soon, Bruno!
