【For International Fans】
How to Buy Tickets for SCANDAL Concerts in Japan




As this question comes up time and time again, I've decided to make a definitive post about how international fans can purchase tickets to SCANDAL concerts in Japan + the pros and cons to each option.




Aside from personally joining their fan clubs SCANDAL MANIA or CLUB SCANDAL, which can be pretty difficult to begin with, you basically have these options:

1) Try for tickets through a pre-sale lottery or the general sale

2) Ask a friend in Japan to buy you a ticket

3) Buy tickets from auctions/ticket reselling sites (*Not recommended; will be explained)





How concert tickets work in Japan

It is known that the best tickets are usually always allocated to SCANDAL MANIA members.


Standing-room only venues
These venues do not have any seats, but unlike similar venues in other countries where the earlier you get there the better your chances are of being close to the stage, the number on your ticket determines when you will enter the venue + your location in the crowd.

Most tickets either have two different sets of numbers: a group number/letter and another number that determines your place within that group, or just one number. Basically, the lower your numbers are, the closer you'll be to the stage.


-In the case of two sets of numbers: If you get "Group 2, number 151" (in Japanese that would look like "2組 151番"), that means that you would need to wait until the entirety of Group 1 goes in first, and then you would be the 151st person to enter with Group 2.

-In the case of one set of numbers: If you get "#27" (in Japanese that would look like "27番"), that means that you'd be the 27th person to enter the venue.

------------------------------------

Seated venues
Seated venues mean that every ticketholder will have a seat. For these venues, your ticket will typically have three sets of numbers: a floor number or section number, a row number, and a seat number.


For example: If you get "First floor, row 12, seat 5" (in Japanese that would look like "1階 12列 5番"), you would be on the first floor of the venue in seat #5 of the 12th row.





Types of ticket sales

When ticket sales are announced for SCANDAL concerts, they typically include:

1. Fan club pre-sales
2. LINE pre-sale
3. SCANDAL's official site pre-sale
4. General sales

They all begin and end at different times, and they're usually held in the same chronological order as I posted those in. You can actually try to get tickets for most of the sales! The only pre-sales you may not join are, of course, the fan club ones if you are not a member.

If you wish to try joining MANIA: You can only join if you happen to go to Japan and sign up at a SCANDAL show or go to Feedback! Shop in Shibuya, or have a shopping service sign up for you online.





What are ticket pre-sales? + How to enter them

The ticket pre-sales are lotteries. This technically means that you are not guaranteed a ticket; you either win them, or you don't. Supposedly, the amount of tickets and how they are allocated for each sale is "determined by an undisclosed algorithm." However, with SCANDAL, it seems to always mean that you DO win tickets―unless the shows are at smaller venues.

If you'd like to try for the public pre-sales and do not have a friend in Japan you can ask, you'd have to have a shopping service enter you. Again, tickets are technically not guaranteed because it is a lottery. But, if you do get them, at least you'd only be paying face value for the tickets, plus applicable shopping service fees.

Most people go through services such as Rinkya, FDJP, FromJapan, Japan Concert Tickets, etc. If you have used any of these services (ones not listed as well), please feel free to leave a comment if you would like to recommend/review them.

How you would enter them is to send your choice of shopping service a link to the sale (more info on where to find them can be found further down in this post), tell them how many tickets you'd like, and they will help you sign up for it.

When a shopping service signs you up for a ticket pre-sale, they will not know if you have gotten tickets until the pre-sale they entered you into has ended and they have received the results. They will inform you after this.





General sales

A shopping service can easily get you a ticket through a general sale (assuming that the show is not already sold out). You either should manually find the links to specific concert(s) you want tickets for by searching the major ticket sites yourself (links to them are posted further down), or you can probably just tell the shopping service to find you tickets for which concert(s) you want to go to and they will most likely find them for you.





Pros and cons of purchasing through pre-sales (lotteries) + general sale

Pros:
-You are purchasing tickets via legitimate sources (official ticketing websites) and outright supporting SCANDAL
-Typically less costly fees

Cons:
-Might not get "good" tickets
-Although unlikely to happen, you might not get a ticket





More on the pre-sales:

By the term “preorder” (also called “presale”) we mean the stage when you can order tickets before regular (general) sale starts. You can be eligible, if you are a paying member of the fan club, promoter’s club, ticket agent’s club, you have registered for a certain mailing list or you have otherwise obtained the right to participate by, for example, buying a CD with a preorder code. There is also public preorder, but more on that later.

Most of the time, a certain amount of tickets is allocated to each sales phase and the seat location is further away from the stage, the later the sales period. At the same time, preordered tickets are not issued before regular sale starts and are often withheld until 2-3 weeks before the concert. Thus, regular tickets might be physically available (with visible seat number), while at the same time people who purchased preordered tickets have to wait longer until they can issue their tickets (and see their seat numbers).

As a general rule, there is no preorder period for small concerts of rather unknown local and international artists which usually play at small venues. Sale starts with regular sale, in that case.

For all most established acts and especially J-Pop or K-Pop (e.g. Perfume, SMAP, Bigbang) , there usually is at least one preorder phase in form of a lottery/ballot. If the artist has a fan club, members will be informed given the chance to buy or apply for tickets before anyone else. There might be several lottery/ballot rounds and it is usually possible to apply for several concerts and categories at the same time. However, the amount of tickets and how they are allocated is determined by an undisclosed algorithm. Even with a fan club membership, it is not always possible to get all the tickets you apply for. Good seats, such as front row seats are usually allocated to fan club members, but fan club tickets are also commonly resold on the secondary market. Thus, even without being a fan club member it is possible to obtain good seats – although not for the original face value but at market prices.

From http://www.japanconcerttickets.com/howto/sales-phases/





Where to find links to the public pre-sales

LINE: Add SCANDAL on the free messaging app LINE and wait for them to post a link to the pre-sale site, which will be right before the day the pre-sale will begin.

SCANDAL's official site: Go to SCANDAL's official site and wait for them to post a link to the pre-sale site, which will be right before the day the pre-sale will begin.

General sales: The major ticket companies in Japan are Ticket Pia, e-Plus, and Lawson Ticket. You either should manually find the links to specific concert(s) you want tickets for by searching the site yourself, or you can probably just tell the shopping service to find you tickets for which concert(s) you want to go to and they will most likely find them for you.





Buying from auctions + ticket resale sites

This option is no longer recommended because the music industry is starting to crack down on ticket resales. A group called Tenbai NO is against ticket resales, and SCANDAL is part of that as one of the many Japanese artists who are against the high reselling of concert tickets. You can read more about that here.

Stemming from that, many artists are taking countermeasures to prevent scalping. This includes doing simple measures such as ID checks at the venue, all the way to extreme measures such as facial scanning systems.

With SCANDAL, they are now starting to print the buyers' names on tickets obtained through SCANDAL MANIA. Therefore, although they're not doing this right now, in the future they may make people show their IDs at the door.* This will most likely only affect tickets obtained via MANIA pre-sales, AKA the supposed "better" tickets. It's definitely something to watch out for in the future.

*As of August 2017, they are now starting to do ID checks at solo SCANDAL shows (ex. 11th anniversary show, BEST Xmas), which can/may also affect non-MANIA tickets as well. Please be aware of this.

Update (November 2017): They will now be doing random ID checks at the door on their tours. This means that tickets bought from auctions/scalpers will most likely be invalid and you will not be allowed inside.


As such, I will not go into the specifics of buying from auction/resale sites.





Pros and cons of purchasing through resale sites

Pros:
-"Better" seats

Cons:
-SCANDAL opposes ticket resales
-Very, very costly (tickets can cost at least twice--although it's usually much more--their face value)
-Supports scalpers and lines their pockets
-"High-priced reselling of tickets is a problem that can destroy the positive relationship that exists between artists and music fans." (Source)






If you have any other questions feel free to post them in this thread.

Also, if you have used a shopping/deputy service and would like to recommend/review them, please do!

The resale of tickets exists because the initial retail sale of tickets is either difficult to start with, or tickets are limited due to the retailers allowing bulk buying to start with. Anyone who bulk buys anything so others miss out is not cool in my opinion.

I used www.japanconcerttickets.com when I got my tickets for SCAFES this year.

I have to say that I had a positive experience with them. Communication was always timely (there is a 12 hour time difference, so responses were sometimes next day) without any significant lag between inquiry and response. They delivered everything they said they would deliver in the time frame promised.

Additionally, they helped me get the shuttle bus tickets for the show. I had been wondering how to go about doing it, and been procrastinating looking. The week before I was scheduled to leave, the rep from JCT sent me an e-mail asking if I wanted to get the shuttle tickets. He had the tickets voucher ready for me before our flight left the next week.

My experience with them was positive enough that I plan on using them again. I already asked them if they were going to try to work with Olympic event tickets in 2020, and they replied that they were investigating providing that service, but it was too soon to know if they could or not.

So, in my limited experience of two transactions with JCT, I feel that I can recommend their service. But, keep in mind, that is only my experience.

I literally only knew about this today, I booked a flight without knowing about ticket sale rules since that's how excited I am.

Thank you so much Jade for taking the time to make this post.

I'm going to the Hyogo leg and I used www.japanconcerttickets.com service they have quick response time. I emailed them about an hour ago and received a response about 30 min later.

Sent me a quote for the lottery which by the way will end on Dec 25th if anyone is interested.

There is hope for future. Some artists (LiSA for example) already release tickets for overseas fans. Considering their successful world tours so far they might release tickets for overseas fans as well. If not for small shows then maybe for Arena ones...

Hi everyone,
I am from overseas and will be in Japan during March 25 when Scandal perform at Ibaraki. I am trying to obtain tickets for the concert but it has been really difficult and I know that you need to have a Japanese address/credit card to purchase tickets in Japan. 

I am wondering if anyone had a recent experience buying Scandal Concert tickets with japanconcerttickets.com? Do they put your name on the ticket? This is my main concern with buying from 3rd party as I don't know if they can put your name on the ticket and I  know that they now check for ID at the door. I don't want to purchase tickets from them and then be turned away if they put their own name on the ticket instead of mine.

Any help would be awesome! I am really hoping I can see Scandal perform.

Thanks!

You probably will not be able to get a reply soon as this forum is sadly not as active as it once was, so please do not rely on waiting for an answer.

As I mentioned before, just contact them yourself, explain the situation, and they should be able to tell you if they would be able to put your name on the ticket or not.

Hi,japanconcerttickets.com is the best way to try to get a ticket,unless you know someone living in Japan...but in my case last June they were unable to get any...the tickets were just sold out too fast and they missed out in every case. The strange way tickets are sold in Japan means that you have a few chances and it's definitely worth trying with them first.
I ended up having to use Viagogo and Rinkya to get resale tickets,which when you add their fees,postage etc is not exactly a cheap option...but you know,it depends on how keen you are to see them! Happy Whichever way you use,they'll either post it to you or deliver it to your hotel,I had them delivered by post a month or so before I left because I was only arriving in Tokyo 2 days before the first gig and I kind of worried a bit that something might go wrong delivering them to the hotel,although they were confident that wouldn't happen...people do this all the time.
Don't worry about your name being on the ticket,I had no problem at all,if you've got a genuine ticket you'll get into the venue no problem. Good luck!

Sorry, but that's now incorrect. As I had written here, they will be doing random ID checks at the door for this upcoming tour. That means that if they happen to check you and the name on your ticket doesn't match the one on your ID or passport, they will absolutely NOT let you in.

I know a guy who traveled from overseas to go to the 11th anniversary live in Osaka last year and bought a ticket off of a scalper, meaning that the scalper's name was on it. As they were doing 100% ID checks at the door and the ticket didn't have the guy's name on it, he was denied entry. He told them how he traveled from overseas to go to that and begged them to let him in, but they flat out refused to. So yeah, it's better to not take any risks anymore.

There has been a bit of a shake up on the ticket purchasing recently, in order to have an account to enter any kind of pre-order lottery, an account on a ticket office system must now be verified with with (a SMS message eplus/lawson ticket or missed phone call ticket pia) from a Japanese phone line which is now in place. i.e. So phone number can only enter a lottery once.

Ticketcamp.net one of the large online resellers have also stopped services since the end of 2017, as they have been under investigation for copyright / unfair competition investigation.


Another thing they have recently been testing is electronic tickets via the ticket sellers app on smartphone, i.e. once downloaded and activated on a phone a ticket is no longer transferable. 


The free Honey concert is a electronic ticket only and for the lottery entry was done via smartphone as well, uncertain if they did any checks to see if you have a Japanese/foreign phone. Japanese Android/iPhone can be uniquely identified for which carriers its on/Japanese model.

If anyone is thinking of going to Japan for any shows on this Honey tour I recommend trying Japan Concert Tickets...I just bought a ticket through them for the May 18 concert at Shimizu,I can guarantee there is no name on the ticket and the guy at JCT said there won't be any problem at all. I don't know about any of the other venues,but you can ask them at JCT for info about that.
I don't know why a lot of these concerts are still not sold out,like they are kind of medium sized proper concert halls,but they're not that big really. Anyway there are plenty of seats still available for quite a few of the shows if you want to go. You won't be disappointed if you do go,they're awesome live Happy

First time buying tickets to SCANDAL so take my comment with a grain of salt. (All for taking risks if you have the money. No risk No reward!) Bought tickets through viagogo for Kobe. They were around $70 US dollars and got them in the mail 1 week later. Read about the ID checks and names so i sent a picture of my ticket to a friend living in Japan. He said there was no name on the ticket and that I should be good. They are general admission tickets so that might make a difference. Been following them since 2010 and finally getting around to seeing them live for the first time. Hope to see other SCANDAL US fans there!! Good luck to everyone else.

Due to the fact that Golden Week was a week before the concert.
The postage date of the ticket was/is very late, May 3rd for May 11th tickets, May 9th for May 12th tickets.

Some info:
Mania tickets they are send by courier/signed service.
Tracking numbers were only send on the morning of the delivery.
Recipent can change the shipping time if you have all the details, but only the Sender (normally for fee eplus ticket office can change the shipping address, i.e. to hotel/friends etc. but Mania tickets they have disabled this option)

So if you use a tenso service, your best bet is to have them sent to your hotel/friends ASAP, assume tenso warehouse and you are in Tokyo, can ship on the same day up till 9pm if it was sent out early enough.
