MANILA, Philippines- Are you hoping to score some tickets to Coldplay’s much awaited concert in Manila next year? With ticket prices ranging from P1800 to P22,500, fans are desperately saving money to get access to the band’s Manila leg tour.
While many resorted to cutting off their budget for Starbucks coffee dates, buffet dinner and summer trips to be able to afford the expensive tickets, a certain fan thought of a clever way to score a ticket.
In a viral post by netizen Jhocel Angeles Beckham, she revealed how her “friend” attempted to reconnect with her in order to get a free concert ticket.
In the caption of her post which has amassed over 25,000 shares on Facebook, Beckham wrote:
“Tagal na nating di nag uusap. Chat ako ng chat sayo dati, kinakamusta kita. Sine’seen mo lang ako. Tapos bigla kang mapapa’chat dahil sa Coldplay. Tama nga sila. Tama na iniwasan kita. Iwasan niyo po yung mga gantong klaseng kaibigan. Hindi po healthy.”
Beckham’s friend, whom she refused to identify, suddenly contacted her through Facebook Messenger recently. This move surprised Beckham as her pal has been ignoring her for quite some time. After exchanging messages, Beckham finally figured out why her friend was trying to reconnect with her.
Apparently, Beckham’s friend was inviting her to watch the Coldplay concert with her and her friends. The freeloading pal even had the guts to ask Beckham to pay for her ticket.
Seeing her friend’s real motive, Beckham declined to join her pal and said she wasn’t interested in watching the concert, which she found quite expensive.
Not surprisingly, their conversation didn’t end well as the freeloading pal even accused Beckham of being selfish.
“Di ako madamot haha. Inaaya mo ko sa lakad niyo ng friends mo which is di ko naman kilalala tapos ako manlilibre sayo? Haha Sa Kanila ka magpalibre para makanood ka ng concert ng coldplay?’
