Changing Notes - AR Rahman's Concert - Free Passes from Times Of India



Times of India started their Chennai edition today(check this) and they've started off by giving away (awesome) complementary passes to AR Rahman's Chennai concert which is happening on the 20th of this month. The event is co-sponsored by TOI, they are giving away free passes in exchange for a little coupon in their paper ( yeah.. ), check the page 2 of today's(14/4/08) TOI for the coupon. btw the concert starts at 6.30 pm and is happening at the St. George school grounds opposite Pachaiyappa's College.

However, the passes are only for the standing gallery, so be prepared to stand for 3-4 hours continuously (and no, we are not complaining) if you want to use these free passes. Vijay and me have 6 tickets between us, we actually bought 4 extra TOI's for the coupons and at 2 bucks per pass, this must be the lowest priced AR Rahman concert night ticket ever.

And, about the passes; I think passes will be available for a few more days ( 2 more days at least). You just need to take the coupon to one of the 'Times space centers', there are over 25 such centers in Chennai, so finding one near your place shouldn't be tough. The list of all the 'Times space centers' is in the ad. And there is no limit to the number of coupons one can redeem - you get as many passes as the number of tear away coupons you submit.

So,

See you at the concert .. ;)

Edit: 16 April- There was a different ad in today's edition of TOI.

New requirements if you want to get these free passes today, you need to find a TOI team (they are stationed all over the city) near you and show them a copy of today's TOI to get your free pass. But here is the catch ' Only one pass per person', so you can't get passes by the bulk(i think). Too bad ..

Cheers.

where can we buy them ....

put details dude....

i mean not the standing gallery tickets.....

Guru said...

@Anon dude:

AFAIK regular tickets will not be sold for this event. Entry is only by 'invitation'.

So if you need better passes you need to ask around for sponsor passes from your contacts at any of the sponsoring companies.

Good luck ..

Oh man, too bad I missed an ARR concert...

I remember back in 2002 when he performed for the first time in Chennai in 10yrs (The "Unity of Light" for those of you who remember)

That was my first concert and was totally awesome...even if we did stand for 5hrs too.

Hope you had a blast dude!

Guru said...

Yea .. This was my first AR concert, had a great time..

This 'unity of light' concert is like an urban legend. Its said to be the best ever ARR concert ever.. And they call it the real deal..

For me if this concert was so 'wow' can't imagine how i would've felt bout' that.. Should find a video rip or at least a detailed review blogpost someplace..
