“What A Girl Wants” Is Lower Ticket Prices And Less Drama For The Millennium Tour
Right now my timeline is a mess of those debating about the revelations unveiled in the Surviving R. Kelly documentary and my peers from high school trying to figure out if tickets to the Millennium Tour featuring B2K and Pretty Ricky fit into their household budget.
Pre-sale tickets for the nationwide tour starting in March went on sale officially Friday morning, but when fans tried to get a sneak peak of prices earlier this week, what they discovered were tickets ranging anywhere from $300-$605 and they responded in one collective, “Uh-uh”.
The prices were in fact from third-party re-sellers. As a routine concert goer, I must say it is routine for third-party sellers to double and triple original ticket prices for profit when reselling. But even at around $100 a pop, I don’t know how I feel about shelling out the price of a decent meal for two at Cheesecake Factory for a group who currently aren’t even following each other on social media. In fact, B2K appears to have some very grown man drama going on.
Moniece Slaughter, the mother of B2K member Dreux “Lil’ Fizz” Pierre Frédéric’s son and castmate on VH1’s Love and Hip-Hop: Hollywood recently accused Apryl Jones, mother of Omarion’s children of being involved in a romantic relationship. Slaughter, Jones and Fizz traded insults in a collection of Instagram live sessions in which Slaughter threatened to take her child’s father back to court regarding support and Jones defending herself stating that she and Fizz are simply “best friends” despite seeming to get close while vacationing during the holidays.
Jones maintains that despite the drama, the show will still go on:
“They signed contracts, so me nor Moniece can ruin the f**king tour.”
And according to VividSeats.com those third-party sellers won’t get in the way of fans’ velour track suit and bedazzled bandanna dreams either. Seats in my hometown of Philadelphia are starting off at a mere $70, so go ahead and “Bump, Bump, Bump” your little hearts away.
