As said the rules this year is stricter than ever!
We all know how difficult it is for international fans, but please if you are not a member of the FC yourself, do not buy tickets on the black market this time around.
This post is to save your wallet and you!
For any FC member who hit this time around (all should know by now..).
You will get a QR code just a few days before the concert You will be told where to go at the venue.
When you go to the concert you need to bring
- ID (Passport/Japanese ID card)
- FC membership card
- QR Code
The name you registered your FC membership with must match with QR and ID. And yes they screen every single person who enters the venue!
Multiple fans have said they have seen people being turned away because something didn't match.
E.g. Man's name on the membership yet a woman in line.
A person had 2 tickets and suddenly the friend she was to go with couldn't come so she brought another friend, the friend couldn't enter!
It's hard but I think most Arashi fans are well aware of the re-selling prices! This is JE's way trying to stop it.
