Gaga Fans Compete With 'Professional Queuers' for Tickets
Some Hong Kong fans of Lady Gaga were left disappointed yesterday after the first batch of tickets for a concert in the city were sold out within three hours at one outlet, the South China Morning Post reported.
Fans vied with “professional queuers” and ticket touts to secure bookings for the concert, according to the report. The tickets were available exclusively to American Express card holders, who were each restricted to eight, the Post said.
One unidentified woman said she was paid HK$70 ($9.03) an hour to stand in the queue and had been in line for 30 hours, according to the report. Ada Lau said she bought eight of the HK$1,580 tickets and immediately sold four at a 150 percent profit, the Post said.
Simon Clarke bought eight tickets for HK$480 each, as a surprise for his two sons, whom he said would be inspired by Lady Gaga, according to the Post. Clarke said he had asked the family’s domestic helper to stand in the queue from 6:30 a.m. to secure the tickets, it reported.

Britneys voice is very versatile.
She can reach very high and low notes.
Obviosuly shes not more talanted than Whitney was, but she does have an amazing voice, believe it or not. Her voice is more versatile than Gagas.
