Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman’s fans are angry and disappointed after his concert in Chennai, Marakkuma Nenjam, wasn’t managed properly. On Sunday, thousands of AR Rahman fans made their way to the attend the concert of the musician that took place on the outskirts of the city. While excited fans lined up outside the venue to witness the music maestro on stage, several fans took to X (previously known as Twitter) to reveal that the venue overbooked and many were not even allowed to enter concert premise despite holding a valid ticket. e
Upset fans took to the social media platform to share videos and pictures of fellow disappointed AR Rahman fans and slam the musician’s team for horrible mismanagement. “Fans who paid 2000 rupees tickets where unable to even enter the ARR concert place @arrahman,” a user on X posted, along with a video of the entry gates packed with fans. “Very badly organised concert. Waste of money. Energy. Felt a huge sense of betrayal. I was feeling so stressed than good vibes because of so many fights and shit that was going around! Unfair max was No proper sound!” added another.
“It was worst concert ever in the History #ARRahman #Scam2023 by #ACTC. Respect Humanity. 30 Years of the Fan in me died today Mr. #ARRAHMAN. #MarakkumaNenjam Marakkavey Mudiyathu. A performer in the stage can’t never see what’s happening at other areas just watch it,” another disappointed AR Rahman fan wrote.

There were dozens of people warning us not to get in. Apparently, in the chaotic milieu that followed, many had been pushed/shoved/stamped upon causing injury. The crowd was massive and there wasn’t an inch of space and in the claustrophobic environment, people started fainting.— Ranjitha (@ranjitha2) September 11, 2023
AR Rahman and the organisers are yet to comment on the incident.
