So yesterday was the first day that they decided to give out ticket for the free KBS concert that i had posted about earlier.

The tickets were in the NY/NJ area and if you wanted to go to the KBS concert, you needed one of these free tickets or you would be turned away (so they say).

You already know this was a problem for those in other states who couldn’t make it into NY/NJ to get one because on every board that was related to the festival, concert or just a meet-up, it looked like this:

“IM FLYING FROM X TO GO TO THIS CONCERT AND I CANT GET MY TICKET TO GO? THIS ISNT FAIR!”

“MY HOTEL WAS X$ AND MY HOTEL WAS Y$ BRING ME UP TO A TOTAL OF Z$! I CANT GET A REFUND! GIVE ME A TICKET!”

“I AM NOT ABLE TO COME TO NY OR NJ TO GET A TICKET AND I REAAALLLYYY WANT TO GO TO THIS CONCERT! PLEASE! IM BEGGING SOMEONE! SAVE ME A TICKET?!”

Then there were people who were like this after the tickets were all gone:
“I HAVE EXTRA TICKETS, IM SELLING THEM FOR 500$ EACH! MESSAGE ME!”

“IM WILLING TO PAY X$ FOR 4 TICKETS! I DONT WANT TO COME ALL THE WAY TO NY AND GET TURNED AWAY! PLEASE HELP!”

“MY SISTER IS SICK AND HER LAST WISH IS TO SEE XYZ BEFORE WE GO BACK TO TEXAS! ITS ALSO HER BIRTHDAY ON THE DAY OF THE CONCERT! HELP HER SEE THEM!”

Now i write in all caps because these people were insane. You might think im joking and im being a little crazy myself but for those who were around the event pages + forums, you know im deadly serious.

A quick search on Craigslist with the word “KBS” will give you this:

Yeah.

Not only are these tickets FREE, but the concert is also FREE.
Why are people going insane?
Because one person started a rumor that said
“If you dont have a ticket, you cant get in.”

Get into what exactly?
The concert is going to be at a public park in NJ, tickets were given out so they can control the crowds that will show up. They dont want people crowding the stage/sneaking around with cameras. Once the seats are filled (meaning the people with tickets get first come first served seating) what do you think will happen to the rest of the crowd?

Nothing.

Yeah thats right.
As long as you dont start a problem or complain to someone, there should be no reason why you cant see the concert.

Idoits.

This is why AI started the contest for the free tickets!
We happen to have extra ones here with us and we were upset- no, INFURIATED that people wanted to try to make a profit off of FREE TICKETS in insane amounts.

I understand that people were upset that they couldnt get any and i also understand that people were saying “its not fair” because they were only giving them out in the NY/NJ area so close to the actual concert but heres what i have to say:

You have to deal with it.

Yeah yeah im going to get bashed for being a cold and heartless bastard but listen, YOU guys spent all your money on this, YOU guys are upset at KBS or whoever for this horrible set up and YOU guys are going to start a riot if you cant get in?

Its OUR fault that you cant get a refund? OUR fault that when you stood in line for hours and they ran out of tickets when you were next? OUR fault for turning you away?

Seriously.
How does that make us looks?

NO ONE is turning you away.
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME to come to the concert without a ticket.
please DO NOT start a riot, attack other kpop fans, attack staff/security and for the love of god, PLEASE dont make threats about
“kicking someones ass if they dare touch me”.

Its not professional.
Its not what a real kpop fan would do.
And its not how you would want to be treated if you were in our shoes.

Yeah if i was in YOUR shoes i would be pissed off but you know what?
I would still go.

If you payed all of that money for this free concert and are pissed, i have a question.
Why didnt you just pay for the ticket so you could go to MSG and be guaranteed a seat?
If you are willing to pay 100$ and more for a FREE ticket, why didnt you shell out that money for the actual concert a few days later?

Again, you know who you are (if you are reading this) and if we lose followers for the blog then that is fine but im just letting EVERYONE know:

If we went out of our way to make SMT or KBS or whoever come here because we WORKED HARD for it and a lot of fans are not able to go because of ONE PERSON, it wont be only me you would have to deal with.

(Not a threat, im talking about the rest of the kpop fans)

I really dont want them to go back home and say
“What a crazy concert, i never want to perform there again. They are so violent and unprofessional during a free concert, I wonder how they will act during a paid one.”
Do you?

Hopefully i reach out to SOMEONE with this post and they will be on my side but right now, i am not in the mood for being nice anymore.

I am disgusted at how the way people from other states have been acting and especially the OLDER people who are supposed to be welcoming + representing in our own state. If we went to a concert in YOUR state and acted the way you guys have been acting in the course of ONE DAY, how would you feel?

If you still want a shot at some free KBS tickets then be sure to enter the contest that is posted before this rant.

Sorry if i offended anyone who has read this but i needed to get this whole thing off of my chest.
