She must be worth it - the VIP seats are sold out.

I actually saw the ad on TV and I had to blink a few times to check if I was seeing correctly: prime seats to her concert (VIP) would put you out by PhP 25,840.00! That's more than $600! (I initially posted this in my Facebook status, and I was heartened to hear that even for people in the USA, they found the price outrageous.) And when I checked a website to see the prices (I like to research first before I post anything on my blog), I was even more stunned to see that this section was already Sold Out.
Are you sure we should still classify ourselves a Third World country?
For a complete listing of prices, here is the poster I found from the Philippine Concerts website.
My reaction to the prices: Wow.

As my post title suggests, it must have been quite some time from the last concert that I attended. I remember feeling quite guilty for spending PhP 750 on a concert, something my mom would call a "waste of money" especially if you could just purchase it online. (Of course, when she said that, we still had casette tapes. Look it up, kids.)
If you have the money to burn - the 25k seats being sold out indicates there are people who can - I will say the same thing I say to people who get face lifts: more power to you, I hope it gives you some measure of satisfaction.
I have to say it again: Wow for a 25k ticket. Just...wow.
