The concert organizers of the upcoming Super Show 5 in Manila finally released the seat plan, ticket prices, ticket selling dates and other important information about the concert!
I will share the information I got from Ms. Happee’s Facebook Page and the Super Show 5 in Manila Events Page! Yay!
So Super Show 5 in Manila will be on OCTOBER 24, 2013, THURSDAY! It’s a weekday but I think there will be no huge problem about that. Bigbang’s Concert in Manila was also during a weekday, a Wednesday (and it was October 24, 2012 lol) but still, the concert was jam-packed! I guess fans who are working and students who are still in school will take a leave or take a half-day shift. Some of my friends already filed their vacation leave for the concert lol.
According to the event page, the concert will start at exactlt 7PM and it will last for about 3 to 3.5 HOURS. So the concert might end at around 10~10:30PM, and maybe 11PM is the latest time. Super Shows are usually 3-3.5 hours long. I’ve even experienced watching a 4-HOUR Super Show during the second day of Super Show 4 in Seoul. The concert’s duration makes your concert ticket so worth it. Just imagine, 3-3.5 hours of PURE Super Junior!!!
Unlike the past two shows, SS5 Manila will be conducted at SM Mall of Asia Arena not in Araneta Coliseum. I’ve experienced watching 2PM’s concert in MOA Arena and I was really tired when I got home because the venue was located 3 hours away from our house. Train stations are already closed when the concert ended so we had no choice but to have multiple rides from MOA Arena to our house.
I am not really complaining but I just have some issues with MOA Arena. I did enjoy watching 2PM’s concert in MOA Arena except the technical problems that happened. There were couple of times when the audio went off. The sound system inside the arena is not really great compared to Araneta and the seats were quite smaller compared to the seats in the big dome. I also hope that lightsticks and banners will be allowed because during 2PM’s concert, lightsticks were confiscated. Just imagine a Super Show without lightsticks. Sucks.
Anyways, Ms. Happee promised that lightsticks will be allowed. I hope that there will be no technical problems during the concert. I believe in the powers of Pulp Live World and Dreammaker haha! Okay, end of my rants =)
SEAT PLAN AND TICKET PRICES:
Earlier today, Ms. Happee released additional details for the concert. I got some additional information about the seat plan via the event page for SS5 in Manila:
SVIP (Standing Pit) = php 8,800
Lower Box A (VIP – 1st 5 rows) = php 8,800
Lower Box B (6th row onwards) = php 8,000
Upper Box = php 3,400
General Admission = php 2,000
+ SM Tickets ticketing charges apply
As what has been announced, the prices for the VIP Areas is cheaper compared to the previous Super Shows. Well, I think that applies for the VIP Seated and not for the SVIP or the Standing VIP/Mosh Pit. There will be 3 Standing VIP Areas and I guess among the 3 standing areas, VIP 3 will get the best view.
General Admission’s tickets are quite more expensive compared to Super Shows 2 and 3. Maybe because the seats are not free-seating anymore? Not sure but I guess your 2000php is still worth it because its Super Junior, LIVE! I watched 2PM’s concert in the General Admission Area and the view was still good!
I don’t know how much will the extra charge is. When I bought our 2PM concert tickets, there were no extra charges. I bought the tickets on the day of the concert but I don’t know if it has something to do with the ticketing charges.
Ticket will be on sale on SEPTEMBER 6, 2013, FRIDAY at SM TICKET OUTLETS located at SM Malls nationwide. Expect fangirls rushing to SM Malls just to buy concert tickets for Super Show 5. SM Malls open at 10am so I guess ticketing will start as soon as SM open their doors to customers.
I am just wondering what happened to the “Priority Ticketing” that was mentioned during SJ Convention last week. The head of E-Plus tap to pay card said that all the attendees of SJ Convention 2.0 who submitted the “small stub” will get e-mails within the week for priority ticketing. They said that if you have that e-mail, you’ll be able to buy a ticket first. I don’t know how will it work and I don’t know any update about that. I still haven’t received any e-mail as of this writing so I am not sure if they will still push that through.
For the tickets, you don’t proceed to the Ticketnet Selling area of SM Malls. You need to go to the SM Cinema ticketing area and look for the SM Tickets Booth.
I guess payment via credit cards are also accepted. BDO even have a promo or 0% interest for its cardholders who will buy tickets for Super Show 5 in Manila.
SO WHAT’S E-PLUS TAP TO PAY CARD AND HOW ARE THEY CONNECTED WITH SUPER SHOW?
E-Plus tap to pay card is one of the major sponsors of the concert and during the SJ Convention 2.0. E-plus card is like a debit card wherein you will reload it with money and use it in its partner shops like SM Cinema, SM MOA Arena, Snacktime, etc.
E-Plus’ team head for Super Show 5 in Manila announced during SJ Con 2.0 that all the fans who will buy a concert ticket will automatically get a FREE commemorative E-Plus card made especially for Super Show 5 in Manila. He even said that the E-plus card will serve as the ticket for the concert.
Aside from the FREE e-plus card, there will also be a rebate on the ticket prices in form of a e-plus card load which can be used in purchasing food at Snacktime or merchandise at SM MOA Arena merchandise booth. Does that also mean that there will be concert goods this time? Hahaha! I hope so. I want to buy the official SS5 Lightstick!
I’m still quite confused on how will this e-plus card will work as the ticket for the concert. Let’s wait for additional details from E-plus and Pulp Live World.
I’m really excited about this concert! I will also make a post about the fan projects for SS5 in Manila soon!^^
