It seems that a number of Malaysian concertgoers weren’t too happy during Westlife’s ‘The Wild Dreams’ world tour performance which took place at the Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil in KL on Thursday and Friday night.
Videos and images circulating online show attendees grumbling about the VIP seating arrangements provided during the concert, which consist of rows upon rows of “cheap” plastic chairs set in front of the stage.
Audiences compared the plastic chairs to what you’d normally see provided at a kenduri or any typical Malaysian banquet, festival or public event.
Criticism was also thrown at the concert venue and organizers, but fans agreed that the popular 90s’ Irish boy band still gave a spectacular performance.
@eldermillenniial The venue and organiser’s method of running the concert did not do #Westlife justice. Malaysia need to buck up on their event management skills. #WestlifeWildDreamsTour2023 #uptowngirl #westlifeconcert #westlifeliveinmalaysia ♬ original sound – Joseph
Naturally, people were a little upset that they were given the ‘downtown boy’ treatment despite paying ‘uptown girl’ prices for the tickets which cost between RM294 to RM884.
However, some netizens refuted the claims that attendees were given any sub-par treatment.
They seem to agree that it was completely normal for concerts to provide similar seating arrangements for audiences and that people were merely overreacting.
