Berlian Entertainment in cooperation with Asia Sports Development (ASD) will hold the concert at Mata Elang International Stadium (MEIS) in Ancol, North Jakarta, on June 1, 2012.
â€śThe publicâ€™s interest for the concert is fantastic. It can be seen from the sales of 3,000 pre sale tickets that had been sold out within seven minutes this afternoon,â€ť Berlian Entertainment CEO Dino Hamid, promoter of the concert, said in a press release as reported by tempo.co on Friday.
The pre-sales tickets ranging from Rp 750,000 (US$82) for festival and Rp 2.5 million for VIP classes were sold online.
â€śWith such price people can see the performance of not only New Kids On the Blocks but also Backtreet Boys. So people bought one ticket for two concerts,â€ť said Dino.
He added for those who had not gotten the tickets yet would be able to buy them in January, â€śbut the price will not be the same,â€ť he said. (iwa)
