Hmmm, I don't think so. My guess is that they are gonna wait til they OFFICIALLY announced the postponement for the rest of the overseas tour, so they can then advertised the selling of the overseas tickets for the online concert. Kinda like what they did when they announced the cancellation of the Japan tour. Because as far as we know, the rest of the tour is still on, even though we all know the fate of that~

This is just my thought but I'm starting to worry about the possibility for us overseas fans to watch this concert on August 21st. Especially after reading this topic on Reddit ... I think the band fear that the next livestream become available illegaly on Youtube or other streaming services and they won't be able to monetize it. So there is a high risk that the band decide to exclude overseas fans from viewing the concert to avoid this problem.

I hope they will release this show on DVD later, I was very surprise to not have the RedBull live on a bonus DVD with KFTD... so I really hope that the band can release a live show because the last live DVD was released in 2016.

There's nothing stopping their domestic Japanese fans from doing this too though, is there?

If they fear they can't monetise the event post streaming, then the next best thing they can do is to monetise it as much as they can during streaming by making sure as many fans (including overseas ones) pay for it upfront. That includes releasing the overseas ticket sales details early enough for sufficient advertising to take place.

Though, Scandal has always been very fan-oriented... I cannot imagine them doing a U-turn and announcing that the livestream will exclude overseas fans, after they've already announced it will include them. 
Please

It's also possible that they're still trying to figure out how to best deal with the difference in handling domestic and foreign fans in the same concert. During physical tours, they customize content based on the tour location (i.e. the band member's spiels, and maybe even some songs in the set list).

Having the content purely tailored for a domestic audience would lessen some of the enjoyment for foreign attendees, and vice versa. Maybe one way would be to have a separate concert for for both audiences (double the production cost, but more satisfying for the fans). Not saying they should do this, just throwing it out there.

I tried to buy the stream, but when I entered the shipping address, which is my address in the Philippines, it said that the order can't be shipped to my location.

They may not offer to ship to my country, but this is an online event and the shipping address will not matter. Plus, the access code will be sent through email.

I'm still confused on how it's "Limited Tickets Available" for an online event.  Hmmm

Ok, I'm set. Just have to wake up at or stay up until 3AM or so. Totally doable. I'd like to buy tickets for my sister and niece, but I don't think they'd be that willing to be awake then. Maybe Scandal could change a rebroadcast time on one of the following days to accommodate overseas fans?

The site says  


Rebroadcast  – August 22nd at 7:00pm  to August 24th at 7:00pm JST

 so that's at any given time between those two days that you can watch

Really appreciate this cos the original broadcast timing is right smack in the middle of working hours for me ><

Being able to rewatch it unlimited times during those 2 days is also really cool, can watch a different member each time!

I'm in. Bought a ticket as soon as possible after seeing this limited description. This is really strange. Maybe written to improve sales. Because the advertising time for foreigners is much less than for Japanese viewers. Hope everyone can buy a ticket, without a problem.

Yes, there is a very high possibility that that line was included as a marketing strategy to sell more tickets in a short amount of time. Once someone sees the words "Limited tickets" and that the show is less than a month away, more than likely they'll want to buy the tickets ASAP.

Also, it could be due to the promoter's (?) slightly poor grasp of English. They used incorrect grammar in the postponement announcements for Anaheim and Toronto ("We have regret to announce"), and also in this livestream announcement ("SCANDAL will bring our"). Whoever wrote all this is not exactly fluent in English. So perhaps they think it's the norm to advertise events like this to overseas fans using phrases like that? idk lol but I really don't think this event will "sell out."

Got a ticket, only reason for limiting tickets is if you have limited bandwidth to support it all - but any competent system should allow way more people then Scandal is likely to get paying $30 a ticket.

We're in 2020 but saying it's limited seems like it's 2000 (back when that was a real issue).

Do we know if there are any perks of watching it live vs recorded?

The order number the site gave me was around #8000, so for a moment I thought it meant Scandal had already sold 8000 overseas tickets on day 1 of sales. 

Then realised it's probably just a count of all orders from all livestreams on that site since the site started, not just Scandal's  SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2020 “Kiss from the darkness” Livestream - Page 2 1f611

All right! Got my ticket. 5 AM is not a problem. And I'm off work so maybe I can rewatch it enough times to saturate myself.

I really hope they release this on Bluray since they will have so many cameras. You could have alternate views if they enable it on the disc. Even without the live crowd, that would be awesome.

Also, if you look at the bottom of the LiveFrom About Us page (https://livefrom.events/about-us/ ) it says "Link to your store" Has there been any idea that livestream merch will be available to buy? I seriously need more Scandal swag and apparel.
