PETALING JAYA: All 12,000 tickets for Ed Sheeran's concert in Malaysia were sold out 30 minutes after they went on sale on Monday.
PR Worldwide managing director R. Para said all 12,000 tickets were snapped up after sales began at 10am.
“Unfortunately, there’s no possibility of adding a second show in Malaysia,” he added.
Meanwhile, 29-year-old Anthony Chin said he managed to get his tickets through sheer determination.
“I went to the organiser’s office at PJ Tower around 9am. It wasn’t open yet and there were already around 50 to 60 people queuing,” Chin said.
He added that he was glad that he came to buy the tickets in person, as he said that he heard that all the online tickets were sold out.
However, some people like 40-year-old Shalini Chandra were not so lucky and walked away empty-handed.
"I tried to buy the tickets online at 10am but I couldn’t get through; the website was jammed. So, I rushed to the organiser’s office and arrived around 10.30am. To my shock, there was already a long queue on the eighth floor of the office as well as at the foyer on the ground floor," she said.
Sheeran is slated to perform at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil, on Nov 14, as part of his worldwide ÷ (Divide) Tour.
A few days ago, ticket sales for Sheeran’s Singapore show by concert venue Singapore Sports Hub came under scrutiny when a netizen accused a staff member of buying and reselling over 200 tickets at exorbitant prices.
However, a spokesperson for Singapore Sports Hub later stated there was no evidence of the allegation
