Tickets to a concert in China normally cost 180 to 1,980 yuan, but Faye Wong’s pricing for her upcoming show in Shanghai on Dec 30 *astounded many. Ticket prices range from 1,800 to 7,800 yuan. Even more shocking is that her company claimed that all the tickets sold out in 32 seconds, while a front row ticket is going for as much as 1 million yuan from ticket *scalpers. According to Sina Entertainment, Zhuang Ming, a person in charge of the show’s sponsorship, admitted that only 800 tickets were available for general sale － the rest have gone to sponsors and re-sellers. Many fans expressed their disappointment toward this mercenary form of marketing.
