[TRANS] 100429 Tohoshinki 3 Members Thanksgiving Concert – Over 1 Million Applications

Tohoshinki’s Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and Hero Jaejoong’s 3 member “Thanksgiving Live in Dome” concert has received over 1 million applications.

Their Japanese management company AVEX’s vice-president wrote in his blog– “In regards to the 3 members’ concert ticket-drawing, I believe the outcome must have disappointed many. We have received over 1 million applications, so I ask of everyone’s understanding.”

Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and Hero Jaejoong officially formed a new 3-member unit last month on the 15th. To express their gratitude for their fans’ support, they will be holding Dome concerts and the applications were opened from the 19th to the 22th. Despite the fact that ticket prices were a hefty 6800 yen each (t/n: approx. 72 USD), fans still did everything they could to be able to watch the concerts: resulting in over 1 million applications.

The picking of lots was finished on the 28th, and only 180 000 people were chosen out of the million.

After the picking of lots, normal ticket-selling will become a problem. Starting from May 22, general ticket-selling will be very inconvenient for Korean fans that don’t live in Japan. There have been discontented complaints of “what are overseas fans supposed to do?” or “since there’s still leftover seats, what is the point of going through the picking of lots?”

Nevertheless, Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and Hero Jaejoong will perform at the Osaka Dome on June 5 and 6 and the Tokyo Dome on June 12 and 13.

  2. I am just a little confused about this, the ticket drawing means that those 180k who were chosen are the only people who can buy the ticket right? It's some sort of a reservation beforehand? Because I know they would only be having 4 events, two in osaka and 2 days in tokyo dome.
