Concerts are one of the most exciting events one can attend. Everyone wants to see their favourite artist live in concert even if the price for the tickets are expensive. After over 2 years of living in the pandemic, many are craving to experience live concerts again.
Malaysian singer Aina Abdul recently announced her upcoming concert “A Night With Aina Abdul 2.0” at Istana Budaya and tickets are already up for grabs but fans were shocked to discover just how expensive these tickets are.
Fans took to social media to express just how shocked they are to find that Aina Abdul’s concert tickets can cost up to RM1,246.96. The cheapest ticket cost RM109 which means there’s almost 1000% gap between the cheapest and the most expensive. The tickets that cost RM1,246.96 are for the “Sumpah” Gold Seats.
Many shared their dissatisfaction over the prices for the concert tickets and even compared them to the prices of other artists such as Yuna and Justin Bieber. Yuna once performed at Istana Budaya back in 2013 with ticket prices ranging from RM80 to RM450.
With Justin Bieber being an international superstar and performing at a huge venue, it’s understandable as to why his concert tickets would cost a lot. The Canadian singer is coming to town later this year with his tickets costing from RM288 to RM2,088.
Despite the backlash, Aina still stands by her ticket prices. The “Sumpah” hitmaker said she understands everyone’s concerns and explained that she took the risk of using her own pocket money to make the concert happen as she’s handling her own career independently, which would justify the prices for the tickets.
“To those who have attended the previous 1.0 showcase will know that I take my performances very seriously,” she said. The singer, who is known for her powerful vocals, over-the-top costumes and stage visuals, said that she’ll give 300% of her heart and soul into the show and promises that the prices for the tickets will be worth it.
