According to C-Jes, the trio’s upcoming concert in Barcelona, Spain sold out 80% of its tickets within three days — surprising the parties involved in the concert organization. In addition, for their Berlin concert, there was a case where the ticket site’s server crashed due to an overwhelming amount of people trying to purchase tickets at the same time.
A source involved stated, “This situation is even more surprising because this is just an individual concert rather than a concert held by a major entertainment company… We were once again able to experience firsthand the popularity of K-Pop in Europe, and the high level of anticipation for JYJ.”
JYJ stated, “This is our first Europe tour, so initially, there were a few points that we were a little afraid about. We thank you for your high level of interest and we will prepare a spectacular performance.” They continued, “Not too long ago, the Spanish ambassador for Korea thanked us for the concert in Spain and encouraged us; now we’re hearing that our ticket sales are going well too. We’re so excited for the concerts with our European fans.”
JYJ has also been invited to the Spain Manga Festival, which reportedly draws in 60,000 people each year.
The boys’ success has also been documented in Japan, where they’ll be holding concerts on October 15th and 16th. All 60,000 tickets for the events have been sold out.
