Pellow's Protest Angers Devoted Fans

WET WET WET frontman MARTI PELLOW enraged fans who had paid for the privilege of meeting him backstage, by telling them how much he hates 'meet and greets'.

The LOVE IS ALL AROUND singer told the devoted followers, who had paid $285 (GBP150) each to meet the Scottish band, that "these things are the f**king bane of my life".

His comments came shortly before a concert at the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena in England on Saturday (04DEC04).

Fan JOHN SCOTT says, "I paid GBP300 for the special tickets for my wife and me.

"He was bang out of order. The rest of the band were lovely and they looked embarrassed by his behaviour.

"Marti spoiled the whole day for us."

I believe this refers to the event called a 'Soundcheck Experience'. It was not sold as a 'meet & greet' and the booking information gave no promise that those attending could expect to meet the band. As its title suggests, the event allowed ticketholders to attend the soundcheck before that evening's concert.It included some fingerfood in a hospitality room and a free programme. Other fans who attended say that it was clear to them that Marti's complaint was about a problem with his earpiece and was not directed at fans.
