These are the prices here, fortunately I can apply for 20% off of a cellphone company, but still... too expensive :evil:

92,000 CLP = 150 USD
80,500 CLP = 138 USD
64,400 CLP = 104 USD
57,500 CLP = 94 USD
36,800 CLP = 60 USD
27,600 CLP = 45 USD

I hate that vip thing :evil: ....... now it is in almost every concert specially in festivals...if you can afford to get it you can be front row, near to the band... it's not like back in the day when you get in front row because you were early in the place...it sucks

Hey guys, just joined the forum, what a great place for blur fans!! idk if this has been mentioned yet, but what do y'all think the chances are that blur will play ACL festival? Judging by the recently announced dates in Mexico City and Chile (which takes place in between weekend 1 and weekend 2 of ACL), I think it's definitely plausible. Thoughts?

Lineup is not officially released until Tuesday but it doesn't appear they are playing the festival.

Ooof! Those VIP tickets are a bit pricey... :lol:
Yup, but we're used to these kind of prices here.

Even if you want to see a shitty band you need to pay a lot of money. It's ridiculous but that's the reality here.

So when I saw the prices for Hyde Park, I thought, "well, it's like the prices in Santiago" :mrgreen:

Many Chileans like to go to Argentina to see their fave bands (it's so much cheaper there).

yeah I saw that, I'm super bummed tbh, I really thought it would happen for some reason. Oh well, I guess it makes sense that they wouldn't want to play another US festival after the lukewarm reception at coachella :-( sucks to be a blur fan living in the US

I've got tickets to see Blur twice this year, which is something I never thought I'd wrangle. Especially because the first is at Hyde Park (Rod Laver in Melbs about five weeks after!). As an Australian, that BDO cancellation seemed like the death knell for them coming here. Really, really excited for both (especially with Jamie T supporting in Australia).
