If you’re a US fan of BTS and its band member Suga, you might have just missed the boat on seeing him perform live.

The rapper’s US leg of his Agust D Tour – named after one of Suga’s monikers – is coming up in April and May this year.

But tickets are no longer being sold after Ticketmaster scrapped successive ticket sales after its presale saw ‘extremely high demand’.

Also known as the Bangtan Boys, Suga is one member of the South Korean boy band, which formed in 2010 and took the US by storm. 

He will be the first BTS member to stage a solo world tour.

But the ticketing giant announced via Twitter on March 2 that due to ‘extremely high demand’ during its ARMY members pre-sale opening, it will not be selling any more general admission tickets.

Ticketmaster communicated in advance that there was not likely going to be a general on sale in a number of tweets, in one of which they announced: ‘If all tickets are purchased during the ARMY MEMBER Presale, there will not be any additional sales.’

Many fans observed there were some still tickets available to purchase on the site – though these were platinum category seats, which were reserved due to high demand and marked up in price.

Many want the ticketing company to sell these reserved platinum tickets at a lower going rate. 

Lots of people weren’t happy, as one person wrote: ‘Ticketmaster honestly I hate you so much! You waitlisted so many ARMYS yet you guys are making all tickets available during presale.’

Another responded to news there would be no general sale tickets, with: ‘oh but you sure do have tickets to steal our money with premium pricing’.

A third called for action: ‘stop with the platinum tickets. i still see them on there 5 hours later, popping in then greying out then appearing again. release them at the fixed prices.’ [sic]

This comes after a flurry of in-demand concert tickets – from the likes of Madonna and Beyonce – proved too expensive for the humble concert-goer, as many fans took to social media distraught at the ticket prices – some of which crept into the thousands.

Ticketmaster introduced the controversial ‘dynamic pricing’ in 2011, which fluctuates ticket costs depending on demand. has contacted Ticketmaster for a comment.
