After what was reportedly a dreadful performance at NYC’s HARD Festival, M.I.A. has offered to host free show for HARD attendees who felt ripped off. In addition to the M.I.A.’s crappy performance, a thunderstorm took over that resulted in the show ending early. Although a rep for the performer hasn’t been able to confirm that this free show will actually happen, the gesture is generous and totally fair.
Which makes me want to ask you: What was your biggest concert nightmare? When have you felt stiffed by an artist or screwed over by a ticket broker? A few weeks ago I saw a thirteen year old girl in a new dress crying her eyes out in front of the Miley Cyrus show because her grandma had bought her bogus tickets on an unauthorized site. When I was like, 16, I bought tickets to see Christina Aguilera and Destiny’s Child at the Tweeter Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts. We drove like, 45 minutes to get there, got inside, found spots on the grass field and waited there for a half hour before we started hearing announcements that the show was canceled due to Xtina having a sore throat. Needless to say, a refunded ticket didn’t make up for my devastation.
Holla in the comments. Get it out, guys.
