Bryan Adams Tickets delayed by a day

Update 21st Jan : Sources have confirmed that tickets could be delayed by an additional day to probably come on sale either on Sunday or Monday 22nd or 23rd
For those waiting to pick up those tickets from the McDonald’s outlets across Karachi, hold your horses they have been delayed by a day and are now planned to hit the streets on the 21st… reported by our informant Arsalan Haleem ;).

For many of us looking at the steep price of Rs. 3500 it at first seems high but do consider that all the profits go towards a good cause, keep in mind if you were to attend such a concert in the states you are bound to pay anything upwards of $50 which is the average ticket price so lets not kill ourselves complaining at the price, you get to hear Bryan Adams right here in Karachi for almost the same money.

Consider the immediate benefits – You don’t even have to go to the US Embassy in Islamabad and appear for an Interview. Imagine yourself saying to the Immigration officer, “Sirree.. I wanted to go to the Amrika because I have always dream about looking at Bryan Adams concert…… A boot in the ass along with the big bold REJECTION stamp would be the most likely exit from the embassy doors.

I have over the past week had some detailed conversations with Arsalan about the concert and I have been repeatedly assured that security is top-notch and a considerable number of hours have been spent trying to make it rock solid specially suitable for families. The tickets are being printed with some degree of security measures to prevent counterfeits.

To my understanding there appears to be a serious attempt to have a peaceful concert since the Team at Zindagi Trust is very committed and serious to have a success as not only the concert goers but the entire nation awaits a successful concert which will most likely open the door for many other to follow in the future.

I plan to attend firstly it is after all for a good noble cause the steep price does not seem to hurt much, it can be considered as a once in a life-time opportunity. To make things even sweeter I also get the honor of life-long boasting rights to claim “I was there”.

Karachi you all seriously need to Rock’n Roll

    Thank you very much Teeth….for reminding us lowly beings of this auspicious opportunity to witness your Avatar.
    May be Americans should send more of their attractions to us. So we can save them the trouble of decorating our asses.
    Thanks again.

    hmmm im puzzled at what really disturbed you in the post above, the avatar/image you see there is the CD cover of Bryan Adams CD Room Service

    The american embassy comment was more of a tongue in cheek joke. Hope you took it that way.

    Dr Sahib, United states is a different story. People in the United States have a minimum wage level.
    Bryan Adams, i am sure, understands the plight of prople who live in this developing country, where over 20% of the population lives under a $1 a day, where inflation is rampant, where KFC and mcDonalds are considered the food of the rich. blah blah, blah blah. i can go on like this for ever. i mean i wouldnt wana liken ourselves to people who live in the USA.

    Azhar Sahib, please bear in mind that we are living in a capitalistic society.

    Places will develop, people will shop till they drop and people will buy what they can afford.

    there will alwasy be class differences.
    Im sure Mr. Adams too is not doing this concert for free and the target audience for the tickets is not everyone living in every street.

    Even Arif Lohars concerts are not targeted at everyone. each has a listenership class and catagory.

    I believe even you excercise your preferences while shopping or going about ur daily life, this too, is a matter of choice.

    That my friend is how THIS world works.

    He is Canadian and his concerts in the US did not cost anywhere near $50. But, as the man said, it is for a good cause.
