Twitter can be very useful (and in this case costly) sometimes. I saw some sporadic tweets a while ago about SM Entertainment arranging a concert in Paris in June and thought it was cool, but that it would be such a hassle trying to find out where to get tickets, getting to France and all that. Then someone retweeted a link to where you could buy tickets, so I suddenly decided I would go if I could.
The tickets went on sale earlier today (they’re sold out btw) and I’m so glad that I did some research last night and had two different ticket sites open, so that I could try the other one if one failed, because they both went down due to the immense traffic moments after the tickets went up for sale. I think there might be a pent up demand for K-Pop in Europe .
I managed to get a hold of a “prestige” ticket (the best seats) with an extra “goodies package”, whatever that is. It was my “panic option”. If I didn’t know what to click, I should click the prestige + goodies button , so I did. Then the checkout was in French. I don’t speak French. But I could understand enough to click the right buttons and fill out the forms correctly.
The groups performing are SNSD , f(x) , Super Junior, SHINee and DBSK. Pretty much all top SM artists except BoA, who’s working on a dance movie in Hollywood right now.
I promise I won’t try to drag Tae-yeon off the stage .
It’ll be nice to go to Paris too, becuase I’ve actually never been there. Even if it’s just for a couple of days.
