Shinhwa tickets gone in five minutes
Shinhwa proved they’ve still got it when tickets to the group’s 15th anniversary show were snapped up within five minutes of going on sale.
Shinhwa Company announced Thursday that all 25,000 seats for “The Legend Continues .?.?.” concerts on March 16 and 17 were sold.
“The tickets were available from 8 p.m., and after just five minutes they were sold out,” said the agency. “In addition more than 300,000 people tried to connect to the Web site, resulting in the server crashing.”
After two gigs at Seoul Olympic Park next month, the group will set off to tour Asia. The tour is being staged to thank fans who have stuck by the boy band through thick and thin since it made its debut in 1998.
Last year, the group held a “Return Tour” to fulfill a pledge it made on stage back in 2008 before the members went off to fulfill military service and embark on solo careers. The tour was a success throughout Asia and the upcoming tour is hyped to be just as big, if not bigger. The group will also release its 11th album in April. By Carla Sunwoo
