Some Filipino fans of the American rock band Paramore are upset that they had bought tickets for the wrong concert scheduled for the same month.

Instead of tickets for “Paramore Tour Four” scheduled on February 18 next year, they discovered that the tickets they had purchased turned out to be for the similar-sounding #PaMore concert of OPM artists Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Martin Nievera and Erik Santos scheduled on February 10.

Both concerts have been booked in the same venue: the Mall of Asia Arena.

As tweeted by several Twitter users, several people apparently made the mistake of buying #PaMore tickets when they intended to buy tickets for the Paramore concert. As of posting time, there are no reports as to whether or not the supposedly mistakenly purchased “#PaMore” tickets were replaced with the “Paramore Tour Four” tickets.

Fans of Regine and the “#PaMore” concert, however, fought back and castigated the supposed victims for not carefully looking at their tickets before making their purchase.
