BTS (AKA the Bangtan Boys) have announced the latest leg of their 2015 BTS Live Trilogy tour. The US part is titled “Episode II: The Red Bullet.” The group will have concerts in New York, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles areas in July.
We tried to get the tickets for the Los Angeles show on July 26 at the Nokia Theater but as soon as AXS (online ticketing of Nokia) opened up the line at 10AM last July 25, it was sold out immediately!
I don’t understand how it could be sold out that fast (just a few minutes from the time it opened at 10am) but I know that may fans were upset about not being able to get a ticket. SubKulture (Promoter) had to release a statement explaining their side to the US Fans.
According to SubKulture Entertainment: (Pasted from their Facebook page)
Dear Fans/Supporters of BTS and SubKulture Entertainment,
We would like to thank each and every one of you for joining us in this exciting journey of bringing BTS to the USA for a 4-city tour.
SubKulture Entertainment is also thankful to be able to share that our NYC AND LA SHOWS HAVE SOLD OUT! This is great news for BTS and it is all thanks to their dedicated fans.
Currently, because DALLAS and CHICAGO are almost sold out as well, we are discussing with Verizon Theatre and Rosemont Theatre to see if we can open up the sections that were closed due to the configuration that was initially chosen to best fit this particular show.
In order to avoid any confusion, these sections are NOT HOLDS. They are sections that would have remained closed for the entire show otherwise. However, in order for your benefit, we are working hard to figure out a way to now open these sections by adding in the extra effort to choose a different configuration. Once a final decision is made, we will update you right away.
For those of you who have already purchased tickets for Dallas and Chicago, your seats will not be affected by any potential configuration changes mentioned above.
As for NYC and LA, unfortunately, the layouts for Best Buy Theater and Club Nokia are set as is, without any options for change.
We understand that the AXS website states that “The show is not yet officially Sold Out and it is possible some seats become available again”. This refers to our previous post about Venue Holds that you can read about here: https://www.facebook.com/subkultureent/posts/796392763789383
We also wanted to add that our decisions (past and present) are made as a collective effort between all parties involved with the tour.
As the promoter, it has not been easy to please every individual out there. However, we sincerely thank you all for being so patient and supportive, and for showing BTS so much love. We can assure you that SubKulture Entertainment will continue to try our absolute best in providing an awesome experience to as many fans as possible. Thank you.
– From the SubKulture Team –
We’ll be looking forward to another opportunity to see BTS live in Los Angeles soon!
