Preparations are currently underway as Urban Touches Entertainment (UTE), organiser of the much anticipated Ukiss Meet the Fans session in Brunei, shifts into high gear to ensure its smooth running on May 29.
A teaser video for the upcoming event will also be uploaded in a few days onto their official website, http://ukissbrunei.tumblr.com.
It will feature recorded footage of Ukiss members delivering a special message for their fans in Brunei, who are invited to watch the video and frequently visit the website for any updates.
Ukiss fans will be delighted to know that the group will be in the country to promote their just released fifth mini-album called ‘Brand New Kiss’, following the recent introduction of two new members.
Ak Kamal Ghadafi Pg Hj Suhaimi, the President of UTE, said that pre-sales of tickets had shown a very positive response in the past month, with the most high-end tickets sold out in just a matter of days after going on sale.
“It did not take long for the Diamond tickets to be sold out, and now our Platinum tickets are currently selling like hotcakes,” he said. Tickets for the event have been available on pre-sale at $280 (for Platinum), $120 (Gold) and $60 (Silver).
He added that with the Diamond tickets sold out, fans could still purchase the Platinum, which would give their holders an opportunity to join the exclusive autograph session with all members of Ukiss and enjoy other attractive packages during the event.
“It’s been a while since an international artiste or group has made a public appearance in Brunei. The excitement is really strong because this is not something we all get to experience frequently here,” said the President of UTE.
Furthermore, added Ak Kamal Ghadafi, the event has attracted fans across the region, with some early bookings received from fans in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Hong Kong.
“We were also approached by several fans who requested that we organise similar events in the future with other K-pop groups. It is something that we would look into if this event proves a success,” he said.
The Meet the Fans session will take place at the Jerudong Park Country Club Amphitheatre on a Sunday afternoon from 3pm to 6pm. For further information, interested parties are invited to visit the aforementioned official website.
