Taipei, Sept. 14 (CNA) Fans were lining up inside of the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall Monday evening full of anticipation for the first of two concerts by American pop rock band Maroon 5 in Taiwan.
“I’m so excited. I look forward to all of their songs, especially ‘Maps,'” said 22-year-old Mary Fang, who came with two of her friends.
Fang said she tried to snatch up a concert ticket at a convenience store for two hours, but failed to do so because of the overwhelming demand.
Luckily for her, a friend who had a ticket could not go to the concert, so Fang bought the NT$1,800 (US$55) ticket from her, Fang said.
Vivian Wang, 21, has been a fan for years and was eagerly awaiting the show. [FULL STORY]
