Fans Rebel At Madonna Prices

Madonna‘s world tour in support of her latest album, Rebel Heart, begins Sept. 9 in Montreal.

So far, the only Southeast Asian date being publicized is Feb. 24 at the  in Manila. It will be her first concert in the Philippines.

Though local fans are delighted, they’re also a bit taken aback by the prices, which start at 3,150 pesos ($70) for general admission and up to 57,750 pesos ($1,283) for VIP.

According to GMA News, the prices for Madonna tickets in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Europe are “much cheaper” than the prices for the Philippines shows when they checked Ticketmaster and Live Nation.

The Las Vegas shows at the  are less than half the price, and the  concerts less than one-third of what they are in Manila.

In fact, GMA says that if a Philippine fan can get a really cheap discount air ticket, it makes more sense to see Madonna in Amsterdam or London, where tickets prices are one-fourth of what they are in their home country.
