Promoter Comments on Jakarta Show

Date: July 16, 2002

The Straits Times has posted an article regarding the slew of upcoming concerts in Asia, which includes, of course, several Cranberries gigs. Here's a Cran-related snippet from the article:


MORE WILLING TO TRAVEL

INDUSTRY players credit a relaxation of post-911 travel phobia for the return of Western artistes.

Promoters are also willing to take the risk because Singaporeans are travelling less during the slump and spending more on concerts, they say.

Says Sistic's Mr Tan: 'They still need entertainment to relieve stress, and being discerning spenders, Singaporeans tend to save up to afford tickets to concerts by popular artistes or those they perceive as good.'

Promoters Adrian Hobbs of M2 (Diana Krall), and Michael Hosking, managing director of Midas Entertainment, say the tour plans of artistes also account for the increasing arrivals over the next six months.

Mr Hosking, whose company is bringing in Blue, notes that The Cranberries are headlining a festival in Jakarta for US$500,000 (S$880,000). 'Since the group is already flying all the way to Asia, the thinking is that they might as well perform here,' he says.
