K-Pop sensation BTS are back from their brief touring hiatus and are returning to the states for a North American tour this year. Now, ahead of the tour, Ticketmaster shared some new rules for fans trying to score presale ticket next week.

Late last year, BTS’ management group, Big Hit Entertainment, announced a new ticket lottery system for mega fans who wanted to get the “best” seats on tour. In order to gain access to floor seats in the lottery, fans must purchase an official ARMY fan club membership. Then, they’ll be entered into a raffle to access a selected allotment of floor seats.

BTS’ Global Official Fanclub ARMY members will be able to purchase presale tickets next Wednesday, February 5, at 3p.m. In a tweet sent out early Wednesday morning, Ticketmaster shared some new rules, noting that fans should come to Ticketmaster early and sign in, only shop on one device, try not to buy tickets on the same WiFi network as another fan, and stay in one waiting room per show.

“Using multiple devices or browsers for the same show will not increase your chances for tickets and may limit your ability to shop during presale,” Ticketmaster said.

Fans went into a frenzy – noting that everything that had learned about purchasing presale tickets on Ticketmaster is now false. Fans also pointed out that ARMY members will only be allowed to purchase presale tickets for the specific date they chose when registering for the lottery.

 

BTS Official Fanclub Army members can purchase presale tickets on February 5 with a code, followed by General Verified Fan Presale on February 6. Tickets will go on sale for the general public on February 7.

The boyband will be touring in support of Map of the Soul: 7, which is due February 21. The record will follow Korean-based albums Love Yourself: Tear from 2018 and 2016’s Wings. BTS also released the EP Map of the Soul: Persona last year, which shot to the top of the U.S. and Korean charts for tracks “Boy with Luv” and “Make It Right.”
