The concert organizers “Super Dome” expressed that due to the stage set up which includes the use of water, fire and other special effects, the production cost has consequently increased, the ticket prices for SS4 Seoul has also increased and Taiwan’s stop will require more equipments and hence the organizers have no choice but to increase the ticket prices.
