Singer IU has achieved a sold-out ticket status for her solo concert to be held at AXIATA ARENA in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in June.

Her agency, EDAM Entertainment, announced on the 27th that "All tickets for the '2024 IU H. E. R. WORLD TOUR CONCERT IN KUALA LUMPUR,' which took place at noon on the 26th (Korean time), have been sold out." They also stated, "Upon opening, the website experienced an overload of connections, causing the server to temporarily crash. The waiting time exceeded one hour, and an emergency server recovery process was initiated. Additionally, there were up to 820,000 concurrent connections, demonstrating the enthusiastic interest of local fans towards IU."

The ticketing for the Kuala Lumpur concert followed the pattern of consecutive sold-out shows in Seoul, Yokohama, Taipei, six cities in North America (Newark, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Rosemont, Oakland, Los Angeles), Jakarta, and Singapore during the world tour, further solidifying IU's global presence.

Previously, for the Taipei concert, the number of concurrent connections reached a maximum of 700,000, which was widely reported by prominent local media outlets such as CTS NEWS, TVBS NEWS, and Taipei Report. Particularly noteworthy was the immediate sell-out of all tickets within 10 minutes of the start of sales for the North American cities, despite it being IU's first solo concert visit to those locations. Jakarta also recorded a maximum of 630,000 concurrent connections. In Singapore, there were instances of ticket site crashes due to intense competition for tickets, highlighting the fervent interest in the concert in each city.

IU has captivated audiences with her solid live performances and engaging stage presence, including encore performances and various fan services, during her world tour, starting from Seoul and continuing to Yokohama. Attention is drawn to IU's concert performances as she interacts closely with UAENAs (IU's fan club) during each show.
