They claim that the current going rate is RM18,000 per ticket. Outrageous!
Bruno Mars is coming to Malaysia and people went crazy buying Bruno Mars concert tickets when it was first released.
The Bruno Mars concert tickets were sold out quickly. Now, scalpers and people hoping to profit from selling the concert tickets are coming forward on Twitter.
When the tickets first went up on sale for the 24k Magic World tour, the prices ranged from RM359 and RM888. Today, the same concert tickets are going for thousands!
A Malaysian posted an "ad" up on Twitter selling the Bruno Mars concert tickets on behalf of a friend for RM18,000! He claims that the current rate is RM18,000. But we see from other posters that the tickets are NOT going at a market rate of RM18,000.
In fact, his is the most outrageous offer on Twitter, at RM18,000 per ticket! Others who have also jumped in to sell tickets are only charging slightly over RM1,000 (which is fairly reasonable compared to RM18,000!) and some have pushed it further to RM2,000+.
The concert, which is happening on 9 May 2018 at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil, coincidentally falls on the same day as the General Elections Polling Day for GE14.
Polling time is from 8AM - 5PM, leaving concertgoers plenty of time to make it to the concert venue (something that was initially a concern).
This is not the first time a popular concert has been held on Polling Day. During GE13 in 2013, Andrea Bocelli's concert was also happening the same day as polling day.
Tickets at Bocelli's concert were originally priced up to RM2,888 (for Diamond tier seats).
Would you pay more than the initial ticket price for these Bruno Mars concert tickets? Let us know in the comments.
