It was just last week when local promoters started selling diamond tickets for “one direction” concert… a concert slated next year for 2 consecutive evening – march 21 and 22, 2015. Wow… an early marketing bonanza that will surely make local promoters richer beyond their imagination.
The ticket booth opens by 8am. pero local fans started to fall in line round 3am just to get the tickets. Eh… siyempre limited seats. Hindi lahat nakabili.
Yun na ang simula ng mga nanay na sobrang galit at mga dalaginding na umiiyak dahil hindi nga nakabili ng tickets. Grabe ang response ng tao sa “one direction”.
I just hope na sana ganito rin ang clamor ng mga batang ito sa local artist natin. I mean, come to think of it – a diamond ticket is worth 14k plus. Isang kinsenas na sahod yan. I think this is the same reaction ng magpunta ang korean boy band na Super Junior.
Im not being patriotic or whatever but have you seen a long line of ticket buyers for a Gary V concert nowadays. Im sure pahirapan pa ang bentahan at ang front seat e puro freebie. Mas nakabenta pa nga yata si Anne Curtis at napuno nya ang Araneta based sa last concert nya na “Annebisyosa” and “Annekapal”. A huge success for a non-singer. I think the catch is… manonood ka ng babaeng ubod ng ganda at magsasawa ka sa kanonood ng babaeng pumipiyok all throughout the show. What i like about her is her “honesty”. She compensates it with grand production that would entertain her huge follower.
I just hope that we support local talents rin. I dont think the last valentine concert of Ogie Alcasid dedicated for singles made it far based on local ticket sales. And here we are, shedding our hard earned pesos to foreign acts. I dont think this would help our local economics and Mareng Winnie would agree. I think ill buy tickets of “no direction” na lang. The tickets wont cost me an arm and a leg … and i still have a few pesos to buy me starbucks (LOL)
