ARMYs Call Out Ticketmaster For “Scamming” During Pre-Sale For BTS Suga’s Tour

Ticketmaster is under fire from ARMYs after pre-sales for BTS Suga‘s upcoming tour.

Last month, Suga announced his first solo August D world tour. He will perform 20 concerts in five countries, including the United States, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Korea, and Japan.

ARMYs have been anticipating seeing Suga live since that day. We’ve all been anxious, knowing how stressful buying tickets can be.

Ticketmaster was not reassuring either when, just a couple of days before tickets went on sale, they announced that not even every Verified Fan would be able to secure tickets. They claimed that ARMYs would be selected “lottery-style” due to the high demand.

At the time, ARMYs called out Ticketmaster for attempting to “scam” fans. They especially criticized the Official Platinum Seats, which, according to Ticketmaster, “are premium tickets to concerts and other events made available by artists and Event Organizers through Ticketmaster. They give fans fair and safe access to some of the best seats in the house.”

On March 1, many ARMYs fought for tickets during pre-sales.

Instantly, tickets sold out…

Or did they?

Ticketmaster announced that there would be neither a General Verified Fan Presale nor General Onsale for Suga/Agust D tour due to “high demand” during the ARMY MEMBER Presale.

The comment section was not happy in the least bit. Netizens called them out, especially concerning pricing, and some even went so far as to say that scalpers might be cheaper.

Some ARMYs pointed out that some sections weren’t appeared listed. Not only that, but prices were being jacked up immediately, although we were still in pre-sales.

It appears that Ticketmaster lied and made some sections unavailable, although all tickets were supposed to be made available, just so that the company could overcharge later.

Some even reported that, as a result, their tickets were being converted to the Platinum pricing in real-time, so by the time they got to the checkout, it had switched over to the higher prices.

So, ARMYs are calling out Ticketmaster for lying, scamming, and price gouging.

ARMYs believe that Ticketmaster could ultimately face serious legal issues as a result. The company is actually still currently under investigation.
