The local organiser Colored Rhythms is releasing bits and pieces of tantalizing news via its Facebook page (as below). They announced today that there will be online ticketing, which makes it so much easier for overseas fans to purchase tickets. Anyone tempted by this to come to Singapore? In addition, the seating will be numbered, which means no more queueing for long hours before the event starts in order to get the best possible seat.
Of course, concerns were raised to Colored Rhythms about the capacity of the website to support the expected high online traffic. Heard that the ticketing website “Gatecrash” used for CN Blue’s sale of showcase tickets crashed the moment online sale opened and created numerous ticketing problems without any telephone support or service from the ticketing service provider (it must be related to their unlucky-sounding name). Colored Rhythms assured fans that they are not using Gatecrash and have taken note of the concern. In fact, Colored Rhythms is being so responsive to queries that I wonder how they have time to work.
JKS’ fan-meeting tickets have historically (almost?) always sold out on the first day of sales, and usually within the first few hours. As much as the online ticketing website will bring convenience to all, as a selfish eel I worry that as a result, all the tickets will be gone even faster, because already Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, Chinese and countless other eels have expressed keen interest to buy the tickets. I’m praying hard … …. So please, if you are not a serious buyer, please do not visit the ticketing website on the 1st day of sale just out of curiosity. It could mean a dashed hope for someone else….
Photos of the venue, University Cultural Centre Hall, are also released. It’s located in National University of Singapore, ah ha, my alma mater, but I’ve not been back since I graduated donkey years ago. It’s a beautiful hall, and I already visualize that the whole fan-meeting will be a complete enjoyment…. The only comment I have is that the stage looks very plain.
