Mariah Carey recently announced that she will be touring South Africa next year in April. I’m still considering whether or not I should attend. For us folk in small cities such as The Bay, concert tickets for international artists are the cheap part. If you want to see your favourite international artist you have to take leave, travel to the nearest city (normally Cape Town), get accommodation, meals and all those extras. So seeing your favourite artist could end up costing a few thousand.
I love Mariah, but I am still living in hope that Britney Spears will tour South Africa in the near future, so I will decide in January or February (if there are tickets left) if I will go.
In October Lionel Richie announced that he will be touring South Africa, and boy was I excited when he said that The Bay will be included. My mother was so excited for it. I planned on surprising her and my father with tickets as Christmas presents. Unfortunately last week, he cancelled his PE concert in place of another one in Johannesburg. The cancellation was very hushed, but I speculate ticket sales weren’t up to par with the rest of the country. It’s all very sad, but if that is the case, then from a business point of view it’s understandable.
Anyway, this Tunesday is about Christmas songs, and unless you’ve been living in a cave, you’ll know that Mariah has one of the best Christmas CDs ever created. The festive season officially starts when stores start playing it (and Boney M of course). Also I have the need to clarify that my song choice is not a hint to anyone in specific, I just really like All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
