According to the petition the same exact scenario happened two years ago.
Apparently, feedback was given back then to the management of the Singapore Sports Hub. No improvements were seen since then and according to the petition the Singapore Sports Hub gave the same template response upon receiving feedback again.
“We as consumers should not just keep quiet about this. Obviously, feedback was given but fallen on deaf ears. We paid for it, expecting quality but it was way below quality. Even 7th month Getai has better standard'” added the petition.”
Goh also wrote on the Singapore Sports Hub on the petition. “Hi, I think it’s time we stand up for ourselves because the Sports Hub won’t, the media won’t, the organiser won’t. We are consumers, we have the rights to receive quality products that we paid for. We should voice it out together, and get things right.”
In 2014, when Jay Chou had his concert at the Sports Hub, there was also a problem of a leaking roof.
The complaints also sound very similar to public complaints made after the Sing50 concert held at the National Stadium in August 2015. A faction of fans also made the same complaints after the Madonna concert earlier this year.
It is also quite clear that Taylor Swift also chose to have two days in the Singapore Indoor Stadium instead of one day at the National Stadium for the same fear of not being able to ensure that the speakers and audio facilities would match her vocal performance.
Is there anything which the management of the Singapore Sports Hub led by its CEO Manu Sawhney can get right these days?
The petition post-Jay Chou concert comes just days after what seemed like a mass exodus of senior management and mid-level personnel from the embarrassing project.
Only last month, it was made known that a computer glitch caused the non-appearance of the national flag during the pledge taking ceremony during the National Day parade.
With so many teething problems despite being in operations for more than two years, it has left many wondering could there be a new low for the project?
