the ticket prices depends on the sponsors tbh.. which 2ne1 lacks there.. about lady gaga, i think she have tons of sponsors there.. lady gaga's concert here costs 353.52usd and yep i still think that the price is understandable.

well you're delusional

how the shit is $350US reasonable in a country where the GDP per capita is $1800 per year unless you're in the top .1% of income or something
ms_rancha 22nd-Jun-2012 04:23 pm (UTC)
no bb. its just that 350usd concert tix are always 'expected' here.. i am expecting bigbang tix to be around 350 too, you know.. so don't be mad when i think the price is reasonable because we are used to that price range..

gaga's 2-day concert here are sold-out with the price of 350usd.. ;) i don't really know why people from this country can afford such concert tix either..

What are you smoking? Plenty of bands with zero sponsors play for not much and have bigger fanbases than this. I got to see Bon Iver with a really close seat for about £30. YG is smoking crack.

350 understandable? In this economy, lol no.
ms_rancha 22nd-Jun-2012 04:18 pm (UTC)
it is reasonable for me. i live in a country where concerts like that with the price like "expected"

lmao. now i know that the concert prices here are very expensive yet they sell out tons of tix.. like gaga's 2 days sold out concert tix with a price of 350usd.

Lady gaga has alot of fans, 2ne1, doesn't even promote in the US.

same here tbh

i highly doubt that it's got anything to do with sponsors tbh, the CUBE gig here was £60 a ticket and that was to see beast, 4minute AND G.NA, and the MBC concert here is from £12 - £15 and that's for 4minute, exo-k, and norazo so i guess you can understand that $300 for a ticket which is around £250 or so for just ONE artist is fucking outrageous.
ms_rancha 22nd-Jun-2012 05:46 pm (UTC)
okay.. what i am saying is.. i am used to the ticket pricing (that's how we deal in this country) and I am surprised that you guys are not used to it with the country you live in.. i live in the third world country you know.. so if that's the case then it's outrageous for you and those who are in the US.. so peace?

fair enough, but just because we live in 'richer' countries doesn't necessarily mean we can afford those supposed riches? my family in pakistan make the same mistake, just because the value of a pound is higher than a rupee, they don't seem to understand that WITH the value of a pound, everything else is a lot higher in price too :(

also £1 is 2SGD so i guess the value of a singapore dollar is treated differently in singapore? like 300SGD to you guys is treated the same way as £30/40 for us if that's the expected price? idk

350USD is 224£ or 447SGD :) that's the expected price here :)

just because we live in a richer country doesn't mean we can all afford $300 concert tickets is what everybody is saying. the US is pretty fucking huge. lets say it was 500 people that lived here, only 20-50 people are into kpop. how are they expecting to sell out large venues with that sticker price? they should've just gone for smaller venues really, i don't know why they think they can sell out an arena that JYJ couldn't even sell out.

just to paint you a similar picture: i went to the star magic tour in 2010 at the cow palace in daly city, ca. daly city has the highest number of filipinos outside of the philippines and even they could not sell out the entire arena and it wasn't that big, even if a lot of people were flying in from other states.

so yeah, im saying kpop and asian artists are catering to a fringe market in the US. it's different in the philippines since kpop and korean dramas are/were on TV, and not in a special channel.

Ticket prices really don't depend on sponsors, not here anyway. There are plenty of popular acts without sponsors that preform here and the ticket prices are reasonable. just because it is EXPECTED in your country doesn't mean it is REASONABLE everywhere else.
ms_rancha 23rd-Jun-2012 03:34 am (UTC)
lol that's why i'm saying that i didn't know that it is different in your country.. lmao
