Keating fans get ripped off...
Ronan Keating's new single "Rollercoster"
is already causing controversy in his hometown of
Dublin. Fans of the singer are being forced to fork
out extra money to buy his CD single instead of his
cassette for a meeting with their idol.
on Grafton Street in Dublin are organising a meet
and greet with the former Boyzone frontman on Friday
July 7th for fans who have bought the singer's new
song "Rollercoster." However, ShowBiz Ireland's
record industry sources have said it is totally unfair
for the shop to say on their promotional posters that
customers have to buy a CD single.
cassette single does not included them in the meet
and greet. One source told ShowBiz Ireland,
"The promotion was for those who bought the song on
CD. Then they would be given an armband and allowed
in on Friday at 11am to meet Ronan. However, the posters
also said that the offer was only valid on the CD
and not cassette's which is forcing young fans to
fork out an extra £2 for the same song. We would not
do this and I can't understand any record company
making fans buy a CD instead of a tape."
record company Universal Records still had
not returned ShowBiz Ireland's call at time
this story went live.
Ireland doubts however that Ronan has anything
to do with the rip off to fans and is sure to be annoyed
at the record store or whomever has organised the
just thought that as a fan of Ronan's I was
very disappointed to discover that after getting my
wristband and taking a sickday from work, that the
fans were not allowed get more than one CD signed
- which is unfair because if a fan is willing to buy
a few copies of the CD's (considering there are 2
releases) that he should be willing to sign them.
the fans were not allowed get personal photo's taken
with Ro. As far as I know this is the first time that
the fans have been so restricted. I think Ronan's
new solo career is either getting to his head or to
the heads of his management.
have no problem with my comments being mentioned.
I think that Ronan gives the impression that he would
be upset if he thought his fans were getting unfairly
treated, but he must have realised that one signature
and a 'Hi' were not suffice for the fans, who annoyingly!,
screamed and cried at his arrival.
seems the UK fans get more of Ronan and Boyzone
then the Irish fans. You could also mention that the
fans in the UK were able to buy better tickets for
Ro's concert in the Point Depot than Irish
rang to get a ticket the minute they went on sale
and was offered Row Y, which I refused to buy, my
friend in London phoned her Ticketmaster 20
minutes later and got me Row M!!
maybe you might look into that too. I sent an email
of complaint to Louis Walsh and to Ticketmaster
and as of yet they have not had the decency to reply,
let alone fob me off with an excuse!"
