Review: The Gypsy Kings Concert at Al Shaheed Park

I had planned to go with some friends to this concert put we were all put off by the pricey (KD 40) tickets. A few people also brought to my attention that there was only one original Gypsy King still in the band. So I decided to give it a miss. Very fortunately, at the last minute, my darling niece called me up and said she had bought me a ticket to go with her to the concert. 
We got there on time, unlike many others who piled in during the performance obscuring some of the views of the band. Having paid KD 40 for a ticket one would hope that more of the prime seating would be available. Sadly, it was not and was kept guarded by annoying security personnel and guides who blocked the view most of the evening. Seriously, was it necessary to have blocked off so much freebie seating for so-called VIPS (no biggies, mostly ambassadors and LoYAC people)? 
Was it absolutely necessary for the security to lose their heads and come screaming at the audience to sit down whenever we got up to have a little dance on our spots? I mean really we are not in KG anymore.
However, we did not let that stop us from having a truly, great time and enjoying some fabulous music along with many other enthusiastic audience members. Shame on the ingrates who arrived late, left early or just went up and down for coffee, toilets or looking for people.

The band were amazingly talented and worth every fil, the organisation of the concert was disappointing and has serious flaws that need addressing.

Thank you, Gypsy Kings, come back soon, please.
