AEG Presents, the organizer for the London date of MONSTA X‘s We Are Here World Tour, made a mess of ticket sales after selling way too many VIP packages. Ticket-holders were emailed weeks after purchasing VIP and High Touch packages with information stating that only the first 200 and 500 purchasers respectively would get the perks – the rest would only get a poster. Further, they would also be moved to general admission.
Fans were rightfully confused, hurt, and outraged at this because they shelled out their hard earned money for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with their idols, only to possibly have that experience taken from them.
the whole monsta x in London situation is ridiculous, the back of the floor is seated and all these people getting their tickets demoted now have to fit with the ga that was already sold ?? the day is going to be a mess and a safety hazard pic.twitter.com/VCoIusYahM

Fans have even gone as far as to start a petition on change.org to make AEG keep their original promise.
AEG Presents: Give Monsta X in London VIP's what they paid for https://t.co/Qn5wm2qUh1 monbebe pls sign this petition!! what the promoters have done by misinforming us about the concert and false-advertising what we paid for is illegal!!
