Concerts are now allowed after the government has relaxed the Covid-19 SOPs. Just last month, Malaysians have been passionate to grab their hands on Justin Bieber’s concert that is set to be held in October.
Recently, Malaysian singer-songwriter Aina Abdul has announced that tickets for her concert, which will be happening at Istana Budaya on 25 and 26 June, is available for sale. The tickets are priced from RM113 and go all the way up to RM1,247.
However, it appears that some Malaysians think that her tickets were unaffordable.
The tickets that are priced at RM113 had already been fully sold, while the next cheapest tickets are priced at RM519.
On Twitter, many criticised the singer-songwriter for her ticket pricing. “Aina’s concert at Istana Budaya is damn expensive. The gap from the cheapest to the next is more than 50%,” a netizen said.

“Aina Abdul, who are you again? Yuna’s live at Istana Budaya was way more affordable,” another netizen commented.
Meanwhile, several of her fans have defended Aina and said that her tickets are actually reasonably priced. Many pointed out that Aina is a solo artist who is not tied to a company, thus she has not receive any sponsorships.
Talk about vanue, istana budaya lagi mahal drpd axiata arena tau. Belum masuk technical equipment support, crew engineer, event/stage crew and etc. For me ticket ni mahal sbb vanue bukan sebab the artist. It will bring u different atmosphere concert vibe kalau dekat theater hall.— J (@holycraptt) April 25, 2022
“It’s worth it. Aina has not received any sponsorship and Aina does everything by herself. She moves with her crew. All of her songs are made by herself. She’s a singer, composer and songwriter. She made a name for herself.” a fan said.
“She is a solo artist without a company… She is super talented,” another netizen said.
