Tickets for 2008 UAAP Cheerdance Competition??

I went to Araneta Coliseum yesterday for the following reasons:

– to buy tickets for 2008 UAAP Cheerdance Competition this Sunday, September 7
– to claim my (2) free tickets of Al Jarreu and George Benson concert this Monday, September 8, after being chosen as Ticketnet registrant of the month.

Unfortunately, tickets for this year’s UAAP Cheerdance is SOLDOUT!!!


Supposedly, I will buy 3 upper box tickets for me, Kat and Rio. There were many students who were also asking about the tickets but gets dissapointed like us when they knew that there were no more available tickets for sale. Tickets selling started last Monday, September 1. Scalpers are everywhere selling the tickets thrice the price!!! If you are desperate enough to watch, scalpers is one of your last option. Ticketnet will be selling tickets on Sunday before the event. Many students will go to Araneta for sure to wait for these standing tickets in Upper Box A & B. I’m still not losing hope, still looking for tickets to buy through friends. I still want to watch the Cheerdance Competition even though it may mean ending up in General Admission seats.

On the other hand, I was able to claim the prize from Ticketnet: (2) free lowerbox tickets in  the Al Jarreu and George Benson concert. I couldn’t believe that they cost P4,725 each!

Thanks Ticketnet!!!



I join online promos or contests if I want to but I believed that I’m not that lucky when it comes to those things until this morning when Mr. Jose Bigornia, Creative Head of the Araneta Group, e-mailed me that I was chosen as the lucky TicketNet registrant of the month (July) and I won two (2) tickets to the AL JARREAU & GEORGE BENSON concert to be held on September 8 at the Big Dome. When I went to Ticketnet’s website, I even saw my name there displayed.

As far as I remember, I registered in Ticketnet a month ago. I saw the post of its promo in Boy Kuripot’s blog in I was really surprised and happy that I was chosen and given free tickets. I’ll be enjoying this concert of jazz music from Al Jarreau & George Benson.

If you want to win tickets like I did, register at

Thanks Ticketnet!!!
