This must be the biggest event for us Eraserheads fans. If you do not agree with me, I believe you will not even read this post.
I know there have been a lot of blogs and news about this concert but this is nothing related to those posted earlier. I have no information on where to buy tickets…ok?
I am presently out of the country and will not be able to watch this concert; however, I just want to share my little opinion on how stupid people from the Department of Health and other anti smoking groups are…
The DOH and other groups have been against this concert from Day 1 it was announced, what was originally planned to be a free concert thanks to a big “event owner” is now an expensive concert with NO ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. It feels like we were left hanging waiting for information on where to get tickets.
As tobacco companies are not allowed to sponsor event such as concerts, this tobacco company “owned” the event and made it free to whoever is a part of their mailing list. If they planned to have a Christmas Party with a small local band as guests, will these people still be against it?
I have once attended a seminar offered for Free by a tobacco company before and believe me, they had free cigarettes all over the place. But since I do not smoke, I just went there for the Free Seminar. It was actually a win win situation for me since I have always believed that the best things in life are free!
As the story goes for the past few weeks, to get a free concert ticket, you need to be a part of a certain “mailing list”.
There are people who are now part of this “mailing list” who do not smoke and just wanted to have their hands on a Free Ticket. Entering this list may send you cigarette related mails regularly but if you think about it looking at the bigger picture, you can always have their messages deleted.
We have been receiving e-mails regarding Sex and Viagra and other stuff everyday thanks to spammers, what’s wrong if we receive mails from a tobacco company just to enter free events owned by them? Last time I checked, my GMAIL has more than 800 spam messages. Now we have to spend hard earned cash just to watch the Eraserheads concert.
To people in DOH and other anti-smoking groups, we do not buy Viagra and have sex with people thanks to the mails we receive so we will also not smoke even if this tobacco company sends us nutritional facts about their products.
All we want is a free concert.
Next time, do not use your DOH ID’s to enter the RED List, I don’t think they will approve your application; you should have used a driver’s license or maybe a Voter’s ID…
If you cannot watch a free concert thanks to your ID’s, don’t make too much noise about it. We’ll upload it in Youtube for you anyway.
To the Eraserheads, I know you won’t be able to read this post but if ever this reaches you. I have always been a fan. It’s hard to bury things that happened between you guys but we really appreciate the effort you are doing to pull this off for all of us fans.
