Annas’ Concert In Paris - Ακύρωση

Η τρίτη συναυλία που θα έδινε η Άννα στην Ευρώπη στο Le Grand Rex στο Παρίσι, ακυρώθηκε από την προηγούμενη πέμπτη. Μάθαμε το γεγονός την ίδια μέρα γι’αυτο και δεν αναφέραμε οτιδήποτε για την συγκεκριμένη συναυλία όπως κάναμε για τις άλλες δυο συναυλίες στο Amsterdam και Brussels (περιμέναμε απλά διότι τίποτα δεν ήταν σίγουρο). Οι οργανωτές μιλούσαν για ακύρωση, για αλλαγή ημερομηνίας, και για αλλαγή ημερομηνίας και θεάτρου. Τελικά προτίμησαν την ακύρωση της συναυλίας προς το παρόν και αφήνουν ανοιχτό το ενδεχόμενο για προγραμματισμό κάποιας άλλης συναυλίας στο μέλλον, στην Ευρώπη.

Οι λόγοι για την ακύρωση αναφέρθηκε ότι είναι τεχνικοί αφού είναι πολύ δύσκολη η μεταφορά και το στήσιμο όλου του σκηνικού του σόου σε λίγες ώρες από τις Brussels στο Παρίσι. Για άλλη μια φορά ο κακός προγραμματισμός γίνετε η αιτία για να ακυρωθεί μια συναυλία της Αννας.

The concert of Anna Vissi in Paris has been cancelled last Thursday. The people who are organising the Europe concerts of Anna Vissi had three options: To cancel the concert, to change date of the concert, or to change date and venue for he concert. They finally decide to cancel the concert, and they leave open the possibility that they will organise another concert in the near future in Europe.

The reason for the cancellation is technical, since is very difficult to move the whole scene of the show from Brussels to Paris in just few hours.

Hello from Switzerland!
We (4 persons) are very disappointed, you can't imaging. Also because we've already paid for the train tickets and accommodation.
What an organization, you didn't know that you need more than one day to move the whole scene?
Oh, this is typical greek....
What else can I say!

you can try he brussels concert

The company organizing the concerts decided to cancel the concert in paris.
They were suppose to find and rent music equipment in paris but unfortunately they couldn't since this is a pick period. It is impossible to bring evrything from brussels to paris and setup everything in few hours.

we had tickets for paris too, but we are going to brussels.

cheers

Nowadays even huge shows travel easy. As for the Anna Vissi show, it's not that big of a big show to begin with and the distance between Brussels and Paris is less than 4 hours. The real reason of the cancellation is not the lack of appropriate time to mount the sets on the stage of the Grand Rex. The cancellation is simply due to the fact that not enough tickets were sold to justify the production cost. The sales were not there, no more no less. I am sorry for the people who had to pay for travel fair and hotel accomodations in Paris. Some of that money is not refundable and asking them to change plans at the very last moment is neither fair, neither the solution to their problem. Instead of prompting them to Brussels or Amsterdam, the best thing to do would be to apologise to them for the enormous inconvenience they were submitted to.
Excusez-nous, nous sommes vraiment desoles de toute cette inconvenience.

Hello again from switzerland!
Thank you for yours answers. I hope you will have fun in brussels. We can't come.
I can't rebooking, because then I should pay 100%. So, we are going to stay in paris. Do you know a good restaurant around the grand rex, because our hotel is near there? Or maybe, another event, that we should not miss?

I had tickets for Paris concert too. I already had book flights, because i'm from Portugal. About accomodation i can cancel it, but not airplane flights. There goes 120 Euros for nothing....
Very poor organization. They just knew this 1 week before the show????????? Now they should pay me all the things that i already had to pay to go to the concert.
I'm very sad and disapointed about all this. I'm a big fan of Anna Vissi. I would like so much that this words arrive to Anna Vissi. She sould be ashamed of her poor concert organization.
I don't know what else to say, all this is very sad. Why don't they bring the equipement by train??? It's only 1h30 minutes from Brusseles to Paris. What is more frustrating is that they should know this when they were scheduling the shows right? How stupid is that organization???????????????

techno25000 said...

The only thing i can do now is resecheduling my flights to another date. Maybe i'll change them to see Robert concert at Olympia 4th February 2008, but even so, i have to pay 50 euros tax to resechudule the flights.
:(

techno25000 said...

I bought tickets to row B in the orchestra seats.
All for nothing :(

techno25000 said...

I will have to return my ticket to francebillet.com. Will they pay me postage costs???? The postage cost of receiving the ticket and for returning it too?

Anonymous said...

why don't you go to paris and then go to brussels concert from paris as you said is very near.

;)
just giving some sugestions

Anonymous said...

What are you talking about? As if these people have not spent enough money already. If I am not mistaken there were only 200 seats available in Brussels. Imagine if all the people who had tickets for Paris arranged to go to Brussels and were able to buy tickets. That means that either someone on this site was lying about the number of seats available in Brussels or that, once again, the promoters wete able to issue more tickets and add more seats to the Cirque Royal. I suppose that's common to the Anna Vissi concerts. All shows are sold out but the very last moment the promoters stretch the theaters to fit more people as if they are made of velcro. Please!!!! Don't treat us this way, we are not idiots.

Run people, run. There are still seats available for the Brussels concert. Jesus Christ blessed the tickets and they multiplied. It's miracle, it's a miracle!!!!!

i'm not going to Brussels because my flight was to Paris. I was just going to stay for one night from 8th to 9th October. Changing it is likely very exensive right now. Anyway, tickets to Brusseles right now, if available, must be very bad seats. My seat in Paris was in row B.

techno25000 said...

Why didn't they see this situation earlier?????????????????????????? Are they stupid or what????? Is it the first time Anna Vissi is performing??????????????? What about her??? she doesn't say something about this???? How about apologies or something ?????????????? I'm sorry but this situation is really surreal and unbleievable.

Techno25000,
You are absolutely right to be angry. That shows extremely bad career management and complete lack of respect towards the fans. I am amazed at some people's attitude on this site. You spend money, you get out of your way to go and see Anna Vissi and when the show gets cancelled instead of an apology all they have to say is "That's OK, spend some more money and travel to Brussels instead". That's unacceptable. I am sorry for this kind of poor response. This is not coming from people who are going through the same ordeal you are going through. If they had spent and lost money themselves they wouldn't be saying this kind of nonsense. I think that Anna Vissi should make a statement to all her fans and officially apologise for the huge inconvenience. This is not the first time this is happening. It happened again during her recent US tour.

Let me tell you what you should expect to see in Amsterdam and Brussels. An orchestra of 10 musicians and in the middle of the stage a podium with three steps on which Anna Vissi will first appear enveloped by smoke. Once she comes down those steps there is nothing else. Don't expect any big musical numbers. That's nonsense. That's a very small show.

the organizers apologizes too all that they bought tickets for Paris.

Anna Vissi have nothing to do with it.

Thanks

I can't believe it!Really!I'm travelling from another country just for the concert and what happened???All the money taht I spent for train and accommodation has gone to the wind!Anna was my favourite greek singer but now I would say: NO RESPECT FOR HER!!! Typically greek!!!So disappointed,Anna!!Do something! Make the concert on the 9th Oct!

Anonymous said...

in all concerts, all around the world, there is always a posibility that the concerts are canceled...

so don't blame anyone. the organizers have already apologise and there is nothing else they can do.

we hope that they will organize some more concerts in europe soon.

I know, let's go all fly to South Africa. I'm sure Anna herself would not mind paying all flights for Paris ticket buyers.
And since we are all just a litttllleee anngrryy with her it would be better for her to get us all seats in the very front row, and with a nice dinner before the show and a party after the show, and 2 nights stay in a 5 stars hotel right near where she's going to sing. What do you think? :)

techno25000 said...

To Anonymus from Turkey:
You are right when you say "in all concerts, all around the world, there is always a posibility that the concerts are canceled".
Ok, that's true but, i'm sorry to say, that we have all to blame her organizers. If they already knew that there was no possibility to move the equipment in one day, why didn't they cancel the show earlier, or postponed it? They only knew this one week for the show to happens?

I'm not going to say anything more about this. It's very sad and unprofessional that's all.

Like you say, let's hope she do more concerts in Europe in the near future.

the better thing i think it will be a parisian promotion for anna to try to make again a live here , but not in a too big stage!!

With promotion, it will be more easy to sold out...and who will tell me that i m false?!

If she or her company want it they can make it..on the other way I am sure that everobody will see her in Greece or Cyprus or somewhere in Europe in the next futur ..

Is not only her faut, come on guys..

Keep Still Vissi On ^^

Hello guys!
Well,I'm from Bulgaria but now I'm in Paris-I came here specially for the concert.Of course I'm disappointed too but I think that if somebody really reads this site,Anna Vissi must make some concerts near Greece-Bulgaria,Serbia etc.People from Anna's team should really think of that because she has a lot of fans there!!!
Good luck,Anna!
