X Factor tour branded a rip off
Parents of some youngsters attending The X Factor live tour have branded the show a money making scheme trying to squeeze cash from kids, reports The Sun.
Having already splashed out £37.50 for tickets to see the show, some mum and dads were angry that they were then facing hefty mobile phone bills too, when massive screens at the show invited fans to text competition entries to win a chance to meet the show’s stars.
After seeing the show at London’s O2 one livid fan told The Sun: ‘I felt it was too much, given how much we’d already paid for tickets.
Another parent said it was ‘outrageous’ and further commented that this was in addition to feeling that it didn’t appear ‘like much had been spent on the show’.
X Factor winner, James Arthur continues to tour with Jahmene Douglas, Ella Henderson, District3, Christopher Maloney, Rylan Clark and Union J until the end of February.
A spokesperson for the tour pointed out that entry to the competition was not compulsory.
