I'm sure this will be met with some sort of complaint but I feel strongly that I should pass comment on the concert I attended on the above date. Normally, I wouldn't be attending a Dolly Parton concert but went with my best friend as she had tickets for her birthday. I was expecting an extravaganza, showbiz show. But sadly this was not the case. My friends husband spent over £100 per ticket. The 02 arena was almost full. I suspect most people paid via credit card thus getting themselves into further debt. I thought Ms Parton was a very sweet and talented musician but her show left a lot to be desired. There wasn't much singing and far too much talking. There wasn't any particular stage show apart from Ms Parton playing an array of instruments. To talk about her childhood poverty and to how rich she is now in my opinion was extremely distasteful particularly as London was very post riotting and remains in a deep recession. As a PR/Management company there needs to be some serious tweaking around Ms Partons so called show. The tickets were way overpriced for a performer who frankly, couldn't perform for value for money and in my opinion was unprofessional. Given Ms Partons nature and the impression she gives of herself I'm sure she would like to at least think about changing her approach to her performance.
I wish her all the luck and would hope that her ego (far more inflated than her chest) can be tamed somewhat and that her clear and obvious talent, is put out there more to appeal to her most ardent fans and audience who come out for an evening of showmanship, not a chat.
With kind regards
Please now remove me from this website. I couldn't find anywhere else to complain to. Thank you.
