EXO’s second exclusive concert EXO Planet #2 – The EXO’luXion – set to take place over four days on March 7-8 and March 14-15, has come to the center of spotlight.
The online tickets for EXO’s second exclusive concert opened sales on January 21 at 8 p.m. (KST) but the website′s server soon crashed when 1.2 million fans logged in at the same time, despite blocking all access from outside of Korea and a server extension.
This is the first time that 1.2 million people logged in from Korea simultaneously to purchase concert tickets. The ticketing site YES24 decided to halt ticket sales in order to minimize damage and change the ticket sales dates in order to extend the server for better preparation.
The tickets, which were originally set for January 21 and 22 sale dates, will now be sold on January 28 at 8 p.m. (KST) for the March 7-8 concerts and January 29 at 8 p.m. for the March 14-15 concerts.
The first round of ticket sales for the Happy Family seats, which were sold on January 21 at 10 a.m., were sold out as soon as they became available, proving EXO’s popularity and the second round of sales will begin on January 29 at 10 a.m.
Meanwhile, EXO will be attending The 24th High One Seoul Music Awards taking place on January 22 at 7 p.m.
