Netizens discuss Maeda Atsuko’s disappointing concert ticket sales

4 Apr

Ex-AKB48 ace Maeda Atsuko’s solo concert was held on the 3rd April at Zepp Tokyo. However, sales of tickets on the day itself have become a controversial topic on the internet.

Her single “Seventh Chord” released on 5th March contained a serial number which allowed preorders for her concert tickets. However, tickets were not sold out so normal sales started on 22nd March.

“The 1st floor of Zepp Tokyo has a standing capacity of 2416, whilst 2nd floor has seating capacity of 200. When tickets are sold on the day itself, it means seats were not sold out.”

This has caused a sensation on the internet, as people commented “To think that she’s actually not that popular…” and “Is this reality for the ace of a national idol group?”.

“There were spaces left over in the standing area. The reserved seats were also being auctioned on the internet at a cheaper price. Seems like her career as a singer is going to get tougher the more she gets recognized as an actress.”

The last day of her concert is on 4th April, at Zepp Namba, Osaka.

I checked Yahoo auctions for tickets to her Zepp Namba concert and it’s true that people are selling them off at cheaper prices. Starting bid is 3000 for the 5400yen tickets. This doesn’t seem good for Acchan esp since her single sales have been dropping drastically….even if there’s only been 2 releases after her graduation. I guess alot of her fans have moved on.

Aces of AKB48 reunite on Music Station, Oshima Yuko complains about Acchan

1 Mar

 

On the 28th Feb episode of Music Station, Maeda Atsuko made an appearance to promote her new single “Seventh Chord”, together with guests including AKB48. Oshima Yuko was asked about her interaction with Maeda Atsuko.

Yuko mentioned that both mail each other at times and even made a promise to meetup for a meal, but Acchan never contacted her after that. Acchan explained that she was actually expecting Yuko to set up the date, which prompted Takamina to ask “Is everything okay?”

Afterwards, Yuko added that Acchan had gotten her driving license and had promised let Yuko be her first passenger. But 1.5 years later, the promise was still not fulfilled. Turns out that Acchan hasn’t been driving at all since she can’t even park. The others exclaimed, “That’s scary!!”.

The conversation then turned to Kojima Haruna, who tried to lie about going to a Rolling Stones concert with Acchan, but it turns out that they only bumped into each other and had a good time. When asked whether they left the concert together, Kojiharu laughed and said they went separate ways for dinner since both had different preferences.

Matsui Jurina is also on friendly terms with Acchan, it seems, as she revealed Acchan had invited Jurina to her house and even made her breakfast.

After the program ended, Yuko uploaded the 2-shot on her blog with the caption “Getting prettier by the day~!”.
