 It is official: Rock legends Guns N’ Roses are coming to Singapore. They will play at the Changi Exhibition Centre on Feb 25, 2017. 

But watching the band will also cost fans a tidy sum.  General tickets cost $199, $298 and $568 each, while VIP packages cost $1,038, $1,393 and $2,063.

Some fans were disappointed with the price of the tickets. 

Facebook user Darren Yau commented on the Straits Times’ Facebook page: “How many will pay such exorbitant prices during this time when the economy is not doing well? Even when times are better, the prices are ridiculous.” 

Another user, Mark Matthew Njo, commented: “I’ll sell some guitars just to pay for the tickets.”
