The popular boy-band TVXQ has displayed its ticket power yet again. The band has been invited to the 2009 Jingu Firework Festival to be held on August 6 under the auspices of the Nikkan Sports. Some 12,000 fireworks will light up the Jingu Stadium with singers performing live at four stadiums.
TVXQ will perform at the National Stadium, which can accommodate 50,000. Tickets to the concert were sold out on the same day that TVXQ’s participation was officially announced. Some tickets are sold on Internet auction sites. A staff worker said it is unprecedented for tickets to the festival to be sold out immediately, expressing his astonishment at TVXQ’s popularity.
The 2006 Jingu Firework Festival featured BoA and TSZX The Grace. TVXQ is currently holding its concert tour entitled “The Secret Code” and targeting 250,000 viewers.
