The recent uproar surrounding AR Rahman’s “Marakkuma Nenjam” concert in Chennai has left fans disheartened and disappointed. The concert, which was eagerly anticipated by thousands of Rahman’s admirers, turned into a nightmarish experience due to poor management. As fans took to social media to express their grievances, it brought to light an earlier incident where legendary music composer Ilayaraja had expressed his displeasure over ticket pricing issues during one of his own concerts. Ilayaraja’s remarks, once considered controversial, now provide valuable insights into the ongoing debate about concert management.
During one of his concerts, Ilayaraja candidly questioned the fairness of ticket pricing, much to the surprise of his audience. He asked, “Is it fair to buy a 500 rupee ticket and find people sitting in 10,000 rupee ticket seats?” At that time, his remarks generated controversy and discussions among fans and the media. However, in light of the recent issues faced by AR Rahman’s concertgoers, Ilayaraja’s concerns appear prescient.
The “Marakkuma Nenjam” concert, headlined by AR Rahman, was meant to be a memorable experience for his devoted fans. However, the reality was quite different. Reports flooded social media platforms, with attendees sharing tales of disappointment and frustration. The most prominent complaints included poor audio quality, overcrowding, lack of seating arrangements, and even some ticket holders being turned away at the gate. The hashtag #ARRConcert trended on social media, with fans expressing their anger and vowing not to attend future Rahman concerts.
In the wake of the AR Rahman concert fiasco, Ilayaraja’s earlier question regarding ticket pricing and fairness has resurfaced with renewed relevance. His point about the disparity between ticket prices and seating arrangements strikes a chord with what many AR Rahman fans experienced during the “Marakkuma Nenjam” concert. The frustration of fans who paid a significant amount for their tickets, only to be faced with poor organization and subpar experiences, mirrors the concerns Ilayaraja voiced in the past.
One of the key takeaways from Ilayaraja’s remarks is the significance of fair pricing for concert tickets. Fans invest their hard-earned money and time to attend concerts of their favorite artists, expecting an enjoyable and memorable experience in return. When ticket prices do not correspond with the quality of the experience provided, it leads to disappointment and frustration among attendees. This issue is not limited to a single artist; it pertains to the concert industry as a whole.

Concert organizers bear a significant responsibility in ensuring that fans get value for their money. Adequate seating arrangements, excellent audio quality, crowd management, and transparency in ticket distribution are all crucial aspects of a successful concert. When any of these elements fall short, it not only affects the fans’ experience but also reflects poorly on the reputation of the artist and the organizers themselves.
