Simon and Garfunkel are to visit and perform in Australia. Wouldn't they be in their seventies? Can people still sing in their seventies? Not terribly well I would have thought. Performing at Rod Laver Arena here. A seat with an impeded view, $100. Isn't any seat more than twenty metres away impeded?
Liza Minnelli is to visit our fair shores too, also to perform. I wouldn't mind seeing her perform. She is only 64. $100 to sit in a monster tennis court. No mention of impeded seat, but I'll give it a miss thanks.
We seem to get regular visits from Joan Rivers. Gosh, she is 76.
There are many I could add to the list, but what do the above have in common?
They all come from the Democratic Socialist Republic of the United States, a country of hundreds of millions of people. Why do they want to come and perform in a pissy little country of a mere twenty million? The weather?
You tell me! We have to pay someone in their prime, such as Tiger Woods, many millions of dollars just to come here. How many $$$ were paid to one P. Hilton. Am I on the right path here?
