Local band gifts health care workers tickets for ‘Mayday Fly to 2022’

Local rock band Mayday (???) announced Friday that they will donate 5,000 free tickets to health care workers for their upcoming "Mayday Fly to 2022" concert series.

In a press release issued Friday, the band's recording company, B'in Music, confirmed that Mayday will hold a series of celebratory concerts at Kaohsiung National Stadium, including a Christmas show on Dec. 25, a regular show on Dec. 26, and two New Year's shows on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

And B'in Music announced that it will be releasing 5,000 free tickets to health care workers for the concert series to honor their hard work and efforts during the pandemic.

With the help of the Taiwan Union of Nurses Association (TUNA), 1,000 of the 5,000 tickets will be released first on Nov. 22 on the ticketing website tixCraft.

These tickets will be made available to registered nurses and licensed practical nurses for the band's Dec. 25 Christmas concert and the Jan. 1 New Year's show.

For each day, 250 seats will be released to professionals holding certification showing they are a registered nurse, while 250 seats will be allocated to licensed practical nurses in each of the two show dates.

B'in Music said each practicing license and registered certification would allow the nurses to redeem two seats for one time only.

While the release dates of the other 4,000 tickets have yet to be confirmed, it is known that B'in Music is working with both TUNA and Kaohsiung City's health department to honor Taiwanese health care professionals.

Tickets will go on sale for the general public at 11 a.m. on Nov. 27 on the concerts' ticketing website.

As the Dec. 31 show involves a midnight countdown into 2022, the show will start at 9 p.m. instead of 6:30 p.m., with ticket prices that are slightly higher than the other three concerts.
