YG Entertainment today shared the concert ticket sites of Ticket.com and MyTicket both experienced a down time due to overflowing number of fans visiting the site.

Big Bang earlier announced that the group will be holding a performance for the first time to meet the local fans at Mata Elang International Stadium in Jakarta on October 13.

The Indonesia performance of Big Bang ‘Alive Tour 2012’ tickets were available beginning on June 9 at 10 AM, local time, and both Ticket.com and MyTIcket recorded a sell out with explosive response.

An Indonesian online media Detik.com reported, “Tickets for Big Bang’s first solo concert have all sold out in 10 minutes through Ticket.com and MyTicket. Especially MyTicket site reported a total user of 50,000 to have swarmed to the site causing the server to crash within 30 seconds.”

YG Entertainment said, “As fans were unable to purchase tickets due to overwhelming response, concert organizers and representative in Indonesia are requesting for Big Bang to hold additional concert.”

Big Bang is currently embarking in the Japanese leg of their tour that is expected to draw in a total of 255,000 and recently released special edition ‘Still Alive’ that dominated various Korean music charts soon after its release.
