Pink Fan Told They Needed To Spend $120 On Concert Ticket For Newborn, Internet Left Divided

An Australian family’s excitement to attend Pink’s concert in Sydney took a surprising turn when they were informed that their nine-week-old baby would need a $120 ticket to join them. The family, who had been fans of Pink and had purchased their concert tickets early in 2023, did not anticipate the arrival of their newest family member would lead to such a peculiar predicament.

Pink, renowned for her electrifying performances and global hits, is touring the world with her Summer Carnival tour. The tour’s stop at Sydney’s Accor Stadium was highly anticipated by the family, who had not envisioned their concert outing would involve a ticketing debate over their newborn.

When one family member reached out to the stadium via Facebook Messenger to inquire about bringing a nappy bag, the response was unexpected. They were informed that every attendee, regardless of age, needed a ticket. This left the family bewildered, as their infant would not occupy a seat and would instead be in a carrier.

Despite the family’s argument highlighting the impracticality of purchasing a seat for a baby who would not use it, the stadium’s initial stance was firm, citing the promoter’s age policy. This policy didn’t resonate well with the family, who found it unreasonable to charge for a baby who would essentially be a lap infant throughout the concert.

The situation took a turn when the family’s story gained attention. Accor Stadium revisited their decision, allowing the baby to attend the concert without a ticket. They even offered the family upgraded seats and convenient parking, turning a frustrating scenario into a “wonderful outcome,” as described by the family member involved.

This incident opens a broader conversation about age policies at concerts and events. While Accor Stadium’s website states that children under three may attend most sporting events for free, the policy for concerts remains less clear. This ambiguity led to an unexpected challenge for the family, highlighting the need for clearer policies regarding young attendees at entertainment events.

Pink, a mother herself, is yet to comment on the situation. However, the family believes she would support their view, advocating for more family-friendly policies at her concerts. This story not only underscores the unexpected dilemmas families can face in the entertainment world but also demonstrates how public discourse can lead to positive change, ensuring that even the youngest fans can enjoy the magic of live music.
