Namie Amuro’s world tour coming to Singapore!(Breaking:Concert cancelled)

14 Apr

This may be old news already but i just want to remind Singapore fans(and maybe the Indonesian friends who read my site) that Namie Amuro san is coming soon!

Details
Dates: 26th April 2013
Time: Friday, 7.30pm
Place: Singapore Indoor Stadium
Price: Standard – S$288, S$248, S$218
Restricted View – S$168, S$128

Ticket sales have already started and i wanted to check out the sales status but SISTIC really sucks because they now require you to login first, which means i gotta sign up for an account. And there’s a stupid glitch on their sign up form which means i can’t register despite filling in all the necessaries. WTH, i have to give up. I don’t think i can afford the tickets anyway. =(

Update as of 14th April: It is now 2 weeks before the concert but shocking news came from Amuro’s official site, saying the concert is cancelled due to “technical reasons”. Angry fans are now pointing fingers at the local promoter Midas Promotion for doing a poor job with the marketing efforts, resulting in lots of unsold tickets. Amidst all these chaos, Midas Promotion have issued an official statement to explain that they were not informed of the cancellation and are trying to piece things together. Ticket sales on sistic were suspended temporarily but has since resumed.

Update as of 20th April: Negotiations with Avex has fallen through, and Midas Promotion finally issued official notice to inform fans of the cancellation.  Fans who have purchased tickets from SISTIC will get a full refund.

Really disappointed at Amuro’s management. I am of the view that artistes should always go through with their concerts despite the state of ticket sales. If they cancel a show, isn’t it a slap in the face for those who are attending? It’s like saying the attendees aren’t good enough for the artiste.  Avex could have given out free tickets to fill up the seats, but they chose to turn back on fans who have waited years to see her. I wonder if Amuro herself  supported this decision too?
