HONG KONG - One fan from Singapore revealed that she had paid 2½ times the original price of an Andy Lau concert ticket, only to be disappointed when the gig - part of a 20-show series in Hong Kong - was cancelled because of his flu.
Lau had said he hoped to reschedule the gigs, but the fan said she was let down once again after the authorities rejected a bid by promoter Focus Entertainment to hold them in December this year.
"There are more than 80,000 fans who are affected by this cancellation, including me, who flew all the way from Singapore," Ms Jomel Ng posted online.
"Focus should not just write a statement that the application has been rejected and seek our understanding, without providing any justification."
Fans such as Ms Ng, who had bought tickets from scalpers, were rooting for shows to be rescheduled since they would get only the face value of the tickets during refunds.
