Celine Dion’s Filipino fans are truly excited to finally see her perform iconic ballads this coming July19-20 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

But some fans’ felt their anticipation die down when they heard the prices of the concert ticket. On SM Tickets, the lowest price (General admission) is at P2,640 while the SVIP ticket price is at P35,380.

Joed Serrano, the concert’s producer, explained that the ticket prices are expected to be a bit costly because it’s Celine’s first concert in the country.

He shared with Push, “Mahal talaga. Kasi, siguro, dahil si Celine Dion first time pupunta.” [It’s really expensive because it’s the first time Celine Dion will be here.]

“Yung mga local, kahit taun-taon silang mag-concert, okey lang. Yung kay Celine, minsan lang kaya ganun yung presyo,” Serrano added. [Other local artists can make concerts every year here, with Celine it’s a rare chance so that’s why the prices are like that.]

Celine Dion shared her excitement over her upcoming Asian Tour. She earlier stated, “I can’t wait to perform for you.”
