Having just performed a string of Monster Ball shows in the UK with tickets ranging from £27.50 and £35, fans of Lady Gaga aren’t happy with the 23-year-old for jacking up the price to £50 to £75 for her UK gigs coming up in May and June. Among those complaining:
FayeEllenGregory: I understand that she may have to increased her prices, but 75 pounds! I’m starting to be glad she’s cancelled her Sheffield date as i hopefully won’t have to pay the extra, But I feel for everyone else, she has a massive under 18 fanbase, and its ridiculous to expect someone to pay 75 quid for one artist when I got a day ticket to a festival with loads of bands playing for a tenner less!
jbailey93: It has nothing to do with being worth it, it’s principal how can you charge £35 for tickets for a show, then £75 for the exact same show 4 months later that’s not fair on any level and the thing is they can do it because most fans will pay that too see her its disgraceful
