Tickets for mandopop queen A-mei’s concerts sell out in 9 minutes

The first batch of tickets for Taiwanese singer A-mei's (???) upcoming concert series at Taipei Arena sold out within nine minutes, the singer's record company announced Saturday.

A-mei's record label, EMI Records, said that internet traffic of about 320,000 people was detected after the tickets were released at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1.

All 130,000 tickets for 12 nights in the Taipei Arena were taken within less than 10 minutes of being released, according to the company.

Fortunately for fans, the concert's ticketing website tixCraft has re-released tickets for which the buyers did not complete the transaction process.

The company is encouraging fans to be quick and grab the re-released ticket while they last.

Regardless of the popularity of A-mei's upcoming ASMR World Tour, however, no extra dates will be added, the record company said.

The singer, often referred to as the "Queen of Mandopop," will embark on a new world tour from April starting in Taiwan.

According to A-mei's label, a special "inner ear" section that can seat a total of 200 people has been designed as an extension to the stage.

The section will provide fans with an immersive experience of the concert from transparent seats installed above the show's LED floors.

The concert series will run every day bar three at the Taipei Arena from April 1-16.

The concerts will mark A-mei's return to the venue for the first time since 2015, when residents in the area complained of noise pollution and panic-inducing vibrations during concerts for the Utopia World Tour.

As a result, the management of Taipei Arena introduced a regulation that imposes a fine of NT$100,000 (US$3,617) per song and possible cancellation of the performance if a concert's decibel level rises above 63. The regulation became popularly known as the "A-mei Clause."
