It is just me that thinks it’s incredibly weird when I’m notified that German singer Helene Fischer is performing in Vienna on July 11th, 2018?
I mean, seriously, I have no idea what I’ll be doing over a year from now, and I sure as hell don’t buy tickets that far in advance so a concert organizer can keep my money for well over a year and make interest on it.
I mean it’s the rampant money grabbyness of the music industry nowadays that drives me nuts. And their insistence on making boatloads of money at any cost, and at the expense of fans while all the while bitching about how they and their artists are not earning what they should be.
After all, the cheapest tickets for Helene Fischer’s July 11th, 2018 Vienna concert are a few cents short of 50 euros, and the most expensive are 130 euros.
Throw in if you want to buy VIP tickets, and you’re looking at 250 euros a pop and no, sorry, I’m not interested in buying a ticket 14 months in advance.
You, however, may think differently. In which case, you can give OE Ticket your hard-earned money now, and let them make interest on it for 14 months. Or you can do the sane thing, and only buy tickets for an artist that gives you a few months notice at best. I know I will.
Helene Fischer is performing at the Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna on July 11th, 2018 at 7:30 pm.
Fischer’s 2018 tour kicks off at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig on June 24th, and ends on July 22nd in the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart. There are 10 other concerts in between. All in Germany except for the one in Vienna and one in Switzerland.
And yeah, I’m in a grumpy mood today. But Jesus, that’s annoying!
