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.

This almost happened to me!! Hahaha I really think that it’s a trick they named it similar to Paramore hahaha A day after Paramore got sold out, SM tickets started to sell this concert. Why would they name it #PaMore? Riiight?? https://t.co/W1RNyEajLg

mas masakit pa pala yung maling ticket mabili mo kesa sa maubusan ka ng ticket imbes na paramore naging #pamore

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.
Unang-una, hindi gawain ng kampo ni Regine mangloko para makabenta ng ticket sa concert. Pag sinabing Regine Velasquez, 'matic na bebenta talaga!

Hey, not to point the katangahan. Pero sinubukan ko din naman bumili ng Paramore tickets na yan para sa kaibigan ko. Pero sorry ha hindi kasi ako tatanga tanga para magkamali. Yung #PaMORE at Paramore Tour Four malayo sa isa't isa mula spelling hanggang categories choices.

Nako ah baka maging issue pa na ginagamit ng PaMORE ang Paramore para makabenta. TANGA lang ang bibili ng paMORE ticket dahil akala ay sa Paramore yon! Wag kami.
