Legal action has been initiated by a Malaysian lawyer against the concert organizers of K-pop group Blackpink’s recent show in Kuala Lumpur.
Nas Rahman, who took to his Twitter and TikTok accounts to make the announcement, decided to pursue legal recourse after unsuccessful negotiations with Live Nation and Go Live, the organizers involved.
In his statement, Nas Rahman stated, “After a series of negotiations, both parties did not reach an agreement… I have filed a lawsuit against Live Nation and Go Live in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court.”
Nas had purchased two tickets priced at RM488 each upon learning about the highly anticipated concert, which took place at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium as part of the Born Pink World Tour.
On the day of the gig, when looking for his seats, he realized that one of them did not exist. As a result, Nas had to watch the two-hour concert on some stairs.
It’s worth noting that Nas wasn’t the only individual facing issues at the event.
Several other concertgoers voiced complaints regarding missing seats despite having made the necessary payments, while others expressed frustration over obstructed views caused by high walls and fences.
Shortly after the concert, Nas, who operates his own legal firm, sent a letter of demand to the organizers, requesting a refund and “some” form of compensation.
Unfortunately, a mutually agreeable resolution couldn’t be reached, prompting Nas to file a lawsuit at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court, which handles civil claims ranging from RM100,000 to RM1 million.
Nas clarified his motives for taking legal action, emphasizing that it wasn’t solely about monetary concerns.
He stated, “The reason I believe action must be taken is not because of money. If I allow this issue to go on, it may happen to others in the future, and I don’t want it to happen to anyone again.”
Nas further expressed his aspiration, saying, “It does not matter if I win or lose the case. I hope that I can show all concert organizers that their responsibilities lie with their customers.”
