Big Bang crashes servers and sells out tickets for their first Indonesian concert
Big Bang has proven their undying popularity once again by managing to crash an entire server in just 30 seconds of their concert tickets going up for sale!
On June 12th, YG Entertainment revealed that tickets for the group's Jakarta concert in Indonesia received such an overwhelming amount of orders from fans on the 9th that they were sold out in the blink of an eye.
The online distributor for the tickets commented, "Every single ticket for Big Bang's first Indonesian concert has been completely sold out. Tickets were sold out on ticket.com in just 10 minutes, while on MyTicket 50,000 people overwhelmed the server within 30 seconds of the tickets opening up for pre-sale and caused the servers to crash."
Fortunately, the servers were able to be back up the same day, and tickets were promptly sold out less than an hour later.
Representatives of YG expressed, "Big Bang has shown their power as a leader of K-Pop by being able to pull off such a feat despite not having any special promotions in the country."
