Mayday Rocks Taipei with 50,000 Fans

Source: Crienglish

The first of pop-rock band Mayday's concerts in Tapei on Saturday drew thousands of fans who lined up the night before in hopes of securing prime space at the open-seating event, the Tungstar news agency reported.

Tickets for the concert were attached to the band's latest album, "Poetry of The Day After," which was released on October 23, and were not numbered, so that those who arrived at the concert venue first would get their pick of seats. Fans hoping for the best seats started to queue overnight outside the Zhongshan Soccer Stadium in Taiwan's capital.

The concert opened with a three-minute fireworks show, which cost about 600,000 Taiwan dollars (more than 800 U.S. dollars), according to local media.

The five-man band received screams as more than 50,000 fans sang along to their hit single "Love I-N-G" and other songs from the new album.

The second concert will be held this evening in the same venue.
