And I was just starting to like the guy..
As everyone knows, teens typically have access to a few thousand dollars that they can use to purchase a selfie with one of their idols. Because Justin Bieber’s a cool guy, he’s giving his fans an opportunity to spend that extra cash.
Tickets for Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour are available for pre-sale right now, and fans are not happy with the steep price tags attached to its VIP packages — particularly the $2,000 Ultimate #Purpose Experience, which gets you a picture with Biebs and (probably) credit card debt.
To be fair, you do get more than just a selfie out of the deal. In addition to a concert ticket and a backstage tour, the premium package includes a Purpose World Tour plaque engraved with your name, just like you’ve always dreamed of. You also just get to feel good about supporting Bieber’s tenuous grasp on reality. This is basically charity…except it’s not tax deductible, so you’re still actually paying $2000 for a selfie.
If you’re on a budget, try the “I’ll Show You” VIP #Purpose Experience bundle for $925. It’s a steal, coming in just under $1000 before taxes and Ticketmaster fees. This will get you a group photo with Biebs — but there are no details about just how many people will be in that group.
For $325, you can get the The “Where Are You Now” VIP #Purpose Experience, which is basically just a good spot at the show and a merch bundle.
So. In closing. I want to meet the Biebs, so I am going to start a gofundme page raise $2000 so I can ask Justin if he can sing some Lamb Of God and if I can get him to throw up the horns in picture.
Live Long And Prosper.
