Pablo Bairan, the head of local event organizer Cosplay.ph, has announced on Facebook that the initially allotted tickets for the “Premium tier” seats of LiSA’s upcoming concert in Manila has sold out on Saturday, and the cap has now been increased to the “maximum capacity of the venue.”
He is asking interested event-goers to buy their tickets as soon as possible, as “after this cap increase the show will officially be sold out and no more tickets will be sold.”
A representative of the organizer has confirmed to Anime Pilipinas that the ground level seats, which has a total of about 550 seats, is now set to be filled to its full capacity.
The balcony seats, on the other hand, is now set to fill more than 200 seats.
The representative is saying that the ticket buyers were possibly enticed by the selling of exclusive official merchandise, which was announced just recently.
Singapore-based events organizer SOZO Pte. Ltd., who handled the Japan Music Festival brand, announced last April that they will be bringing the popular anisong artist LiSA for a mini-live and fan meet, titled “LiSA ~Another Great Day in Manila~, with Philippine-based events organizer Cosplay.ph as its local partner.
