In an attempt to stop touts from jacking up ticket prices to exorbitant amounts, Mirror has added two fan-club-only shows to its Hong Kong Coliseum concert series and will use a real-name registration system when tickets go on public sale.
The Canto-pop sensation earlier announced that it would hold its first-ever concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum for 10 nights from July 25 to 31 and Aug. 2 to 4.
Tickets are priced at HK$480 (US$61), HK$880 (US$112) and HK$1,280 (US$163).
Making the announcement on its social media pages on Wednesday, the 12-piece boy band said it would add two more shows for its MIRROR.WE.ARE LIVE CONCERT 2022 on Aug. 5 and 6. The two added shows are only for members of its official fan club, Miro.
“[Fans] have been very enthusiastic about the concert and we know that it is very tiring to get tickets [to the concert] to support Mirror,” said the boy band in a post on Facebook.
“We have heard your voices.”
Mirror also delivered another piece of good news, announcing how tickets to all 12 shows sold publicly via URBTIX will be sold under a real-name system.
The band added that its team is working hard to prepare for the ticket sales and details will be announced at a later date.
Fans have long called for a real-name system for ticket sales as unscrupulous scalpers have been jacking up prices to the hugely popular band’s shows.
Coconuts recently found tickets for Mirror’s upcoming concert selling for as high as HK$438,102 (US$55,811) for a single ticket on reseller platform Viagogo.
