Stop Ticket Scalping!

Dear readers and visitors,

I have recently received notification via the comments of your intentions to sell the tickets to the upcoming Jay Chou Concert. In a situation whereby you are no longer able to make it for the concert, it would be appreciated if the prices are retained at the original cost. Please do not try to exploit the interest of others and attempt to make a quick profit instead; I do have knowledge of other individuals out there who attempt to sell their tickets at sky-high prices- approximately triple the original cost.

If you are an individual who would like to post information about sales of these tickets on my blog via the comments, it would be appreciated if the prices are reasonable. However, if you’re an individual who is simply out there to make a quick buck by quoting ridiculous prices for these tickets, you are not welcomed and your comments will not be published.

To other Jay Chou fans out there, this is my stand:

It would be best if you do not get tickets from individuals who are out there to make a quick buck, by purchasing from them, you would only be encouraging the following actions- These people more often than not, are the ones who are not sincerely interested in attending the concert but just out there to snatch priority over the tickets and sell them at a much higher price to make a quick buck and exploit the interest of serious concert-goers.

Sign off,

True-blue Jay Chou’s fan – Jassy

Vetting through some of the comments irritates me to some extent.

Let’s take a look:

From Andrew: I’m selling a pair of 198 tickets for 600 cos i got e 228 tickets already.
From Jassy: ($198+$3)X2= $402. [Profit of $198]

From HT: Single Ticket for Jay Chou Singapore Concert 2010 (Cat 1) selling at minimum price $328
From Jassy: ($228+$3)= $231 [Profit of $97]

From Whitepolo: Jay Chou concert 2010 singapore tickets for sale (Cat2) at $280 each
From Jassy: ($198+$3)= $201 [Profit of $79]

    Hi Jas, i want to clarify sth abt jay chou’s concert. Is it true that they accept ALL OCBC credit & debit card? Then how come when i tried to book last week, they don’t accept my OCBC visa card? They only have the option of Mastercard. =(

      Hi Zhihui,

      Yup, according to the sistic website, they do accept OCBC credit and debit card. Perhaps you can give sistic a call to confirm before the second priority booking starts?

    Agree totally…
    We, the serious concert goers, cant get any tickets, even after waiting to buy online when sales start =(
    Hope the problem wont persist for sales on the 23rd july concert

      Hi Steo,

      I’m so glad that there are someone out there who really agree with what I said. Hope that all true-blue jay fans are able to get their tickets for the second round

    I went down to sistic counter just now and confirmed that so long it’s an OCBC card, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a mastercard or visa card. I hope i can get the tix this wk. I only worry that the system will have bug and don’t accept my card..

    jassy, i totally agree with you. someone should inform Jay Chou’s company about this. I have seen people selling tickets that they got through organisers or some other means even before sistic opens for sale. And these people are selling like $500-$600 a pair. Or people who is selling at least 10 tickets at 1 go… how do they have so many tickets if it is really that they cannot make it at last min… This is super annoying!

      yup.. today, the sale for the 2nd show started at 9am and it was OSS like around 10am? It’s crazy!

    I totally agreed with your comments Jassy. I am really the interested party to go for Jay concert but did not managed to get the tickets for both 23rd and 24th July show due to the system problem and overwhelming response for it.

    Hence hereby to leave a comments whether there is any seller at your blog have spare tickets for Jay concert and selling at a reasonable price for two tickets at either CAT2 – CAT4.

    Hope to hear from you soon and many thanks :)

    Hi Jassy,

    Just wondering if there is a Jay Chou Singapore Fan Club since I cannot find any details on it online and the criteria for joining.

    In addition, responding to the tickets touting. I find it really disgusted. I truly wanted to watch the concert and have been trying out for CAT1 and CAT2 which sadly on 3 occasions not being able to get them.

    The only consolation is that I manage to secure 2 CAT5 tickets which I am not very satisfied but still I will hang on to it as this is the only chance that I will get to see the concerts in view of how hard it is to even get tickets although there are 3 concerts.

    How I wish that there is really controls in place for die-hard fans who really wanted to go and enjoy the concerts and not falling into the hands of unscrupulous dealers.

    Ya… three concerts all sold out at an instance….Actually if you all doing the booking online… Its hard to get gd seats… I found out the hard way when trying to book his tickets online on the two occasions…

    There are actually pple who stayed overnight at the Singapore indoor stadium..just to get gd slots… Perharps a way to support him is to pre-order his album at HMV outlets… :)

      yup yup.. I’ve pre-order his album already :) what about you?
