So I think you have heard that Gwen Stefani is coming to Malaysia. Her first ever concert in Malaysia for her Sweet Escape Tour. Solo or otherwise...ok not so sure about that but if she has never perform here before then I can actually show the importance of her being here. For the first time. To perform. Ever. See, see the importance of it?!!! Can you see it?!!
Now seeing that I like her music and that I own her first album( original, not downloaded), 2 of her No Doubt album (again: original, not downloaded- quite a feat these days) and watch and generally enjoy her TV specials, its safe to say that yes, I am a fan. Not a big fan but yes, still a fan. So when I heard that she's coming to Malaysia on August 21st, of course I am excited. Of course I wanna go. Of course I wanna see the lovely Gwen in action live with her Harajuku girls.
And then I check the tickets website, and my, my what a surprise. Tickets range from RM385 to RM125 and RM125 being the cheapest and all the waaaaaay back there. Buy the "cheapest" ticket and you can see Gwen as a dot, running around on what you assume is a stage coz you are sitting at the cheap seats and it is that faaaaar away. Check out the sitting:
Green. That's the cheapest one. I mean, WTF?!!! I'm not made of money. The tickets are not this expensive when MUSE came over. Or the Black Eyed Peas or Simple Plan, why in the blue hell are the tickets so expensive for Gwen? Did she won a Grammy I do not know about? Is 50% of the profit goin into African Orphan charity I -again- do not know about? Which is just stupid, coz ya'll know that Angelina Jolie gonna adopt all the African orphans in the world so why start a charity? Just give homegirl some time and she adopt them all. So again back to the question- why in hell is the tickets so damn expensive?!
This is royally pissing me off. Its a couple of years more till I become a filthy rich film producer, at which point I can hire Gwen to perform privately for me. Coz I am just that rich- at that point of course- but until that happens I'm just gonna be pissed off with the ticketing.
Really pissed off. Like barbie-dolls-melting-voodoo kinda pissed off.
