Come on, man! Thousands of disgruntled fans put the pressure on for more Mohammad Muneer tickets
Fans of Mohammad Muneer are none too pleased that they don't stand a passing chance at seeing their beloved star sing at his upcoming concert. The gig has capacity for a mere six thousand peeps to fill the stands at one of the touristic villages.
Mohammad hasn't performed on the live stage for a year and a half so thousands of fans are just plain disappointed that they can't all squeeze into to see the songster. The disgruntled fans criticized the organizers of the event for limiting the number of people and making the cost of tickets 150 Egyptian pounds, which is pretty expensive compared to Muneer's typical concert rate.
According to the Middle East news portal Elaph, fans demanded an increase in the number of tickets to be sold or else cancel the concert entirely. It was added that if conditions remain as they are, fans will force their way into the concert regardless of the circumstances.
A petition was released by fans stating, "You have thrown us out the heart of the capital and our original home The Cairo Opera House on the verge that due to Mohammad's popularity it is impossible to hold a concert at the opera house for it does not accommodate all his fans, and yet you have limited the number of people that can attend his concert at the tourist village. With your actions you have closed the doors in the face of Mohammad's fans."
The petition concluded, "We stand firm to our decision that we with our large numbers will be present at the concert and we do not care to what you have to say."
Could we have a stampede at the door to see the superstar? What will the organizers do?
