sold out in 15 minutes after they were released to the public. All 6,000 seats were sold out.However, fans in Europe began to protest and wanted SM Entertainment to add another date for “SM Town Live in Paris.” Le Zenith de Paris held only approximately 6,000 seats, leaving a big amount of fans in Europe ticketless and disappointed.The protest, held on Sunday May 1st, attracted hundreds of fans who dances and sang at the Louvre. The protest caught the attention of both local and the Korean media.
