If you’re a fan of Cantopop sensation Jacky Cheung and are lamenting missing out on tickets for his upcoming concerts in Singapore, there may be a glimmer of hope yet. Concert organiser Unusual Entertainment has announced the sale of an additional batch of tickets, beginning from July 11. However, there’s a caveat – these new tickets only offer a restricted view of the stage and performances.
Unusual Entertainment revealed the sale through their social media platforms, provoking a flurry of reactions from fans. Many were critical of the move, questioning the ethics and value of selling tickets that offer a less-than-optimal concert experience.
One Instagram user, @eugeegy, lambasted the move as unscrupulous. Another fan, @wongcoral09, used sarcasm to air her discontent, suggesting the organisers might as well extend the concert series to 20 shows instead of continually releasing announcements about ticket sales.

The tickets with a restricted view are priced between SG$168 (RM583) and SG$328 (RM1,138). Despite the limited visibility, these tickets provide a unique opportunity for those who have missed out on initial ticket sales to partake in the concert experience.
On June 27, Unusual Entertainment announced that Cheung would extend his performance schedule by two nights, due to overwhelming demand from his fans. This extension brings the total to 11 nights, a record in Singapore for the most shows in a single leg of a concert tour by any artist.
Originally, Cheung was scheduled to perform for six nights as part of his 60+ Concert Tour, which kicked off in Macau on June 9. The extension of his concert series in Singapore underlines the Cantopop star’s immense popularity and the unyielding demand from his fanbase.
While the introduction of tickets with restricted views has sparked controversy, it offers a unique opportunity for fans who missed out on the initial sale. Regardless of the criticisms, the demand for a chance to see Jacky Cheung perform live is undeniably high, underscoring his status as a beloved icon in the music industry.
