Justin Bieber will hit the road for the first time in three years when he opens up his “Purpose” tour in Seattle on March 9, but for those who want to meet him in person, they will have a pay a hefty price and true Beliebers aren’t happy.
Bieber is providing two VIP ticket packages to fans that want to meet him before his concert.
The first package, called “The Ultimate #Purpose Experience,” cost $2,000 and the second, “The ‘I’ll Show You’ VIP #Purpose Experience,” is $925, each per person.The Ultimate #Purpose Experience gives fans a chance to snap a selfie with the singer backstage and a seat in a barricaded section closest to the stage. Ticket holders also get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour backstage and an official tour plaque.
The “I’ll Show You” Experience also offers a meet and greet with Bieber, but photos are taken in a group. Both packages include early entry into the venue, access to the pre-show hospitality lounge, a premium merchandise package and a digital download of the “Purpose” album.
Because of the steep pricing for the chance to meet their favorite performer, Beliebers are crying foul on social media, using the hashtag #justiceforbrokeliebers. (credit)
Holy shit, I feel bad for Beliebers everywhere. Tickets are expensive enough, can you imagine tacking on an extra grand. I guess with these packages it comes with tickets, but still. I feel bad for the parents of Bieber fans because you know those little crazy preteen girls will want to meet him.
Storytime, you ready? For Backstreet Boys comeback tour with New Kids On The Block I bought VIP tickets so I could finally meet them. If you have followed my blog at all you know that I am too big of a fan than is socially acceptable. Anyway, it was $600 for two VIP tickets, with that we got to hear a soundcheck, about four to five songs, have a question and answer with the guys, and then take single photos with them, rather than group photos. Now I know people will say, well they were cheap because they are no longer a big deal. Correction! The Backstreet Boys are still legends in their own right, and their VIP experience was great. No selfies unfortunately but still great.
Truthfully I am worried about people who spend this much money on Bieber then he doesn’t do his show in full. He has a pretty solid reputation when it comes to walking off stage because he is tired, or puking on stage. Either way it could happen and these poor fans are out thousands of dollars while he still rakes in the cash.
So for you Bieber fans, I am sorry your favorite singer is kind of a douche bag.
