Music fans who want the best and closest view of their favourite singers in concert may have to do more than just buy the most expensive tickets.

Jonas Brothers devotees could buy $550 VVIP packages to the trio's concert on Monday. The packages include priority entry, a meet-and-greet and access to a private hospitality suite at the concert venue for food and drinks.

K-pop band 2NE1 fans could get their hands on $88 soundcheck passes, in addition to tickets that cost $168 and more, to attend the all-girl quartet's rehearsal for three to four songs. The practice session will take place just before the concert on Dec 1.

For the fans of K-pop boy band Nu'est who have bought "Ambassador" packages for $500 each to their showcase performance on Oct 26, they also get to follow the band from arrival at the airport to departure.
