Tickets: Entry to the mini-live is free. To enter the benefits event you need one or more tickets. You get one ticket for each CD you buy. Get them before the event from the same store. Exchange tickets for benefits:

  • 1 ticket: Get the CD signed by the singer
  • 1 ticket: Take a picture of the singer on your phone (not with you and not holding the CD though)
  • 1 ticket: Get an item of your own signed by the singer (e.g. smartphone case, bag etc. Not clothes you are wearing!)
  • 2 tickets: Get the CD signed and take a picture of the singer holding your CD on your phone
  • 3 tickets: Get the CD signed and get a “2-shot” picture of you and the signer taken on your phone (by staff)

  • 6 tickets: All members sign your CD and get a picture of you and all the members taken on your phone (by staff)

You need multiple tickets for multiple benefits (e.g. to get the CD and your smartphone case signed, you need 2 tickets). You usually have a few moments to chat with the idol whilst she signs your goods, so say a quick introduction / thank you!

These are the CDs you can buy to get tickets. One ticket for each purchase:
