Taipei, Sept. 26 (CNA) Tickets for “Queen of Pop” Madonna’s first ever concert in Taiwan went on sale on Saturday and were snatched up within 15 minutes, Live Nation Taiwan, the promoter of the concert, said that day.

The around 10,000 tickets to the concert at the Taipei Arena on Feb. 4 next year were sold in three phases. Some of them were open for purchase to Madonna fan club members on Sept. 17 and to credit card holders from Sept. 21-23.

The rest went on sale at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Ticket prices ranged from NT$800 (US$24) to NT$16,800, with VIP packages sold at NT$30,000 for seated fans and NT$27,000 for standing groups.

The concert is part of Madonna’s 10th worldwide concert tour “Rebel Heart Tour.” It is the first time that the singer will hold a concert in Taiwan.

The tour follows the March 6 release of her album “Rebel Heart.” It began on September 9 in Canada and takes her to Europe and Asia, with the tour concluding on March 27, 2016 at a concert in Brisbane, Australia.
