Got this from RainPhilippines:
Rain’s Fan take turns queuing for tickets overnight
Source: The Sun, 5 September 2005
Rain’s concert in Hong Kong next month which the ticket office will commence public sale this Thursday; there were already queue outside the ticket booth yesterday, hoping to buy the best seat at the concert.
Now at the scene, Fans have used different ways to reserve a place in the queue, some using stools, others used shoeboxes etc. According to 1 female fan interviewed said that there are 10 of them taking turns to reserve the place, each queuing for 5 hours. The queue has started since 5pm on 2 September; the guys will queue during the night. She stressed that even if they could not buy a good seat; they will definitely not consider buying [illegal overpriced tickets] over Internet!
Grabe na itoh!
I’m so glad that I didn’t have to do something like this. I do feel bad for the others who really wanted to go to this concert but can’t simply because they didn’t have tickets, but I just can’t help but feel so blessed that I got lucky.
NOTICE TO ALL WHO ASKED AND WILL STILL ASK:
As much as I wanna help you with getting tickets and all, I really can’t. I don’t have the powers to do that. I just got lucky that I know someone who knows someone who could help, that’s all. Even then, that person can’t help everyone, as well. Mianhe.
I just had a thought: 5 years ago, we didn’t have this kind of problem with Ricky Martin’s concert in HK. One of two things: either Ricky then is not as big as Rain is now (highly unlikely, though; Ricky had the tour during the height of Livin’ La Vida Loca) or Ricky simply had better concert promoters in HK (…most likely).
