Taiwanese multi-hyphenate Jay Chou, who’s currently in the middle of his Carnival World Tour, recently held a concert in Hangzhou, China.
As with many Mandopop concerts, the organisers prepared fluorescent lightsticks for all the concertgoers, with the lightsticks being placed on the seats in the venue before the show started.
However, fans in the East and West blocks of the concert venue were in for a rude surprise when they entered the venue last Sunday (Nov 17).
All the seats in the two blocks had no lightsticks at all, while the other parts of the stadium were unaffected.
As fans took to social media to express their disappointment, other netizens revealed that the missing lightsticks were the result of a number of crooks, who had gained early access to the stadium. One even uploaded a picture of a man with a bag full of the concert’s lightsticks, claiming that the man had gathered them up to resell online.
Fans who attended concerts in other cities also chimed in with their own experiences, sharing that they had gone in to find that they didn't receive their lightsticks either, condemning the actions of the suspected thieves.
