On September 25, Indonesian newspaper, Jakarta Post, reported that all 3,000 seats for 2PM’s first Indonesian concert were sold-out during the first round of ticket sales. The second round of ticket sales will be held online, with 2,000 tickets remaining. 

For the “2PM Hands Up Asia Tour” concert, fans lined up from early hours to purchase tickets, in order to be one of the 5,000 people able to attend. 2PM’s Jakarta concert promoters Marygops Studio announced that the 1,000 tickets that were available for purchase online, the day before offline sales, were all sold out in 15 minutes. The 2,000 tickets that were being sold at the Jakarta UOB Plaza from midday were sold out in less than 4 hours. 

Starting with their first concert in Seoul on September 2, 2PM plunged into their “2PM Hands Up Asia Tour,” with their next concert being held in Jakarta, Indonesia on November 11. Last March, 2PM participated in the “Blackberry Live ‘n’ Rocking Concert” that was held in Jakarta, but this will be the first time having their own solo concert. 

The prices of the tickets for “2PM Hands Up Asia Tour” concert started with standard seats priced at 500,000 Rupiahs (66,000KRW / $57 USD), up to high-priced “Diamond” seats priced at 2,000,000 Rupiahs (265,000KRW / $228USD). When you consider that the starting salary of regular Indonesian college graduates is 2,000,000 ~ 3,000,000 Rupiahs, you can see how popular 2PM is in Indonesia.
