I break my blog silence to complain about the outrageous ticket prices for the Pacquiao vs. Larios Mano a Mano fight this coming July 2. Sorry for this rant but this is unbelievably the most expensive prices ever for a live show in the Philippines! Tickets are available via ticketnet and was recently released last Monday, June 12. Check out these prices — totally outrageous at P31,680 for a ring side ticket and I thought before that the F4 concert with P20,000+ ring side ticket was already crazy at that time.
Mano A Mano, Pacquiao vs Larios
Pilipinas vs Mexico
Manny Pacquiao versus Oscar Larios
Venue: Araneta Coliseum
July 2, 2006 | Sunday at 8:00am
Seat and Price:
Patron (Reserved Seating) – 31, 680
Lower Box (Reserved Seating) – 21,120
Upper Box A (Reserved Seating) – 7, 920
Upper Box B (Free Seating) – 2,640
I can’t believe it myself and if you buy via credit card there is still a 5% surcharge. Inspite of this, I still bought two Upper Box B tickets at P2,772 as a gift for my dad on father’s day. He loves Manny. I was kinda guilty when he asked me for a SM cinema ticket for Manny’s last fight when he knocked out Morales last January 2006 and with all my powers, I was not able to get a ticket on the last minute. So this time around, I’m giving him the gift of watching Manny Pacquiao live in Manila. But still, the prices are unbelievably high and there were reports that general admin tickets are sold for P1,000 but manny wants to slice it down so that it could be affordable to the filipino people.
So how much would you pay for a world class fight of Manny Pacquiao live in Manila?
