TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- Over 300,000 fans crashed the online ticketing system after seats went up for grabs yesterday (Jan. 22) for international pop sensation Celine Dion's first-ever concerts to be held in Taipei in July of this year.
After tickets went on sale at noon yesterday through the Kham ticketing system (寬宏售票系統) at 8 different price levels ranging from NT$800 to NT$13,800, over 300,000 fans desperately clambered to buy up the 20,000 seats available for her two shows in July, causing the system to crawl to a standstill for 30 minutes, reported China Times.
In response to demands from fans to add more concerts, promoters said they will try their best to try and schedule additional shows.
The Morocco Cultures Association, the organizer of the festival '' Mawazine - Rhythms of the World '', is conducting intensive negotiations with international star Celine Dion to be among the artists of the 17th edition of the Mawazine Festival, scheduled from June 22 to 30 2018 !
The Festival is being negotiated with the Canadian star for already more than 4 years without reaching agreement between the 2 parties, the source added. But this year could be good. To be continued !

I had checked flights and everything for Tokyo, but when I was about to buy the ticket I realized this. No way I come all the way there to find out I have a bad seatspiritboy wrote:What a ridiculous thingbrunosilva wrote:I bought a ticket to Tokyo
But we only know the seat on the day of the concert.
Céline hasn't been there since 1996! She did only one single show for 2,000 people thenWayne wrote:Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney are reportedly all lined up.
Haven’t seen Adelaide but could be that also.
And then Auckland in New Zealand - the Auckland date will truly be once in a lifetime.
