Drake Fans Are Pissed Over The Ticket Prices For His Tour With 21 Savage
Add another group of angry fans to the list of people who are shocked that late-stage capitalism has led to a monopoly over ticket sales and thus an ability to over-charge for concert tickets. But Taylor Swift‘s ticket snafu already led to Senate hearings, so the Drake fans will just have to be mad about it with no major political recompense. Fans are pissed that ticket prices for Drake’s new tour with 21 Savage are as much as $1000 a pop. I mean, this makes sense to me even outside of monopolistic corruption because Drake didn’t pay for that hideous multi-million-dollar mansion of his by charging two dollars for tickets and merchandise!
Carlos Santana Is Doing Well After Collapsing Onstage From Dehydration And Heat Exhaustion
Carlos Santana gave fans a scare last night when he collapsed on stage during a concert at the Pine Knob Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan. TMZ reports that the 74-year-old guitar legend passed out 4 or 5 songs into the show, right when he was about to play a song called, “Joy”. Apparently, Carlos realized something was off, sat down in front of the drums, and then collapsed backward. EMTs rushed to help, and staff blocked him from the audience with a large black tarp. Carlos managed to regain consciousness before he was taken to ER, and waved to fans as he was wheeled off the stage. Later, he took to Facebook to explain that he was doing well, he just “forgot to eat and drink water, so I dehydrated and passed out.” A rep told TMZ that Carlos was “overtaken by heat exhaustion and dehydration.” To quote the opening lines of the Santana and Rob Thomas 1999 mega-hit, Smooth, “man, it’s a hot one!” So, you know, stay hydrated.
Halsey Responded To Fans Who Walked Out Of Their Concert In Reaction To Pro-Choice Speech
It’s been a few days since a room full of crusty, out-of-touch, mostly male dickbags who no one elected but get to keep their asses planted on the bench for as long as they’d like to fuck over as many women and minorities as they can during their lifelong tenures decided that individual states can decide what people with uteruses can do with their own bodies. Obviously, people have strong feelings about it, and Halsey has never been one to back away from making their stance on issues known. At Halsey’s concert on Sunday night, the singer made comments condemning the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, spurring some people to walk out. When Halsey was made aware of this, they basically said that these people can kick rocks.

Post Malone Would Like You To Know That He Is NOT On Drugs
Here’s a novel concept: when you begin to stumble around in public, slurring your speech and falling down for no apparent reason, and just generally acting a (bigger) fool, people are going to take note. And they may even reach out with wild theories and unfounded diagnoses. Well, if you happen to be one of those people, Post Malone would like to talk to you.
24-year-old Post, who looks like the human equivalent of a broken, beer-soaked Etch-a-Sketch, recently lit up the internet after a series of concert performances where he exhibits all of the above behavior. And concertgoers, with video phones at the ready, have been trying to stage an intervention by circulating clips in the hopes that Post will notice. And notice, he did.
