How much are the tickets for? And is this going to be a proper concert or just an opening act to the race?

I agree what Mike Vallance wrote.

Britney Spears Concert - describing it as 'Breath taking' is very interesting. Just glad we didn't have to part with any hard earned AED for that one. At least Cold Play can actually sing and produce music.......
