Re: Cliff Richard Court Case

The BBC has announced this afternoon that they will not be appealing the judgement after advice from legal experts. They have issued a long statement.

Cliff Richard is to go on tour in the autumn. He says the tour will be best therapy after the court ordeal.

Re: Cliff Richard Court Case

Proof Cliff's reputation and finances have not be damaged?

The cheapest tickets for two is £143, the average seems to be over £200.

That's a cool £1m for a one night stand with Cliff at the Royal Albert Hall.

Re: Cliff Richard Court Case

I'm sure Cliff will get a significant amount per show, but of course the Royal Albert Hall doesn't come cheap; then there are the wages of the staff, back stage crew, and performers, (how many people will be working the show - 100 maybe? - could be more, if he uses an orchestra as well as a band) and a % for the ticket sellers and his management team. 

"Cheap", on the day tickets for a show in the west end will cost a minimum of £50 each.

 

That's entertainment!

Tens of thousands in costs not 100's of thousands....and there is more than one show day....he'll be raking it in..plus all the Cliff merchandise....posters, key rings, mugs, scarves, meet & greets, cliff wine, cliff tea clothes etc.

Re: Cliff Richard Court Case

And still not as much as a premiership footballer (and probably less than many other pop artists). Good luck to him.

Greedy ********

Shouldn't he be making some charitable donations?

Re: Cliff Richard Court Case

An odd attitude especially as we don't know how much he will earn from the tour. If the public is prepared to pay the price to see him and he puts on a show they enjoy he is entitled to his fee.

 

As for the cost of the production it is likely to be in the 100,000s of pounds. The public will demand more than Cliff standing on stage and singing into a microphone. For artists to tour successfully these days their shows must be spectacular.

Re: Cliff Richard Court Case

As far as I;m concerned he can shuffle off back to his island.

These God people make me sick.

He probably will - after the concerts.

 

I do feel sad that my mum won't get to see him again. At 90 and with Alzheimer's there is no way she could go or even remember him. But over the years she has seen him in concert 4 or 5 times and has never come away disappointed. Long may he bring some entertainment and happiness to his fans.

That cost will spread across numerous shows (£10,000 a show ?), checking the ticket sites the tour is not just the UK and some shows are already sold or only have a few tickets left. Will the judge take that into account when awarding damages, to me it doesn't look his reputation was overly damaged.

Are you sure? Here's one of Cliff's high production value shows. :grin:

@VileReynard And Mr Vile, for with such a post anyone must be trying to reveal himself  as such surely, he most probably does, given his beliefs.

 

What he, I, the PM  and Uncle Ton Cobley do in that use of money is private, and not for you or anyone else to question.

 

Shame on you!:angry:

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I really couldn't care less that a few people disapprove of me. :thumbsup:
