Not what they paid for

"We were ripped off! After paying $40 per seat to see David Byrne at the pier in a show scheduled to start at 5 p.m., then listening to an hour and a half of amateur drumming, we were told he wouldn't even show until 9:45 p.m. One Reel should be embarrassed and owes a lot of people money!"

"It was very heartening to be at WOMAD, a festival that seeks to use music as a universal language to transcend the things that separate us and get people just to move, dance and enjoy being with one another in a spirit of friendship and happiness. Events such as this make me more hopeful than ever that the people of the world will recognize that, as Baha'i founder Baha'u'llah says, 'Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. ... The Earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.'"
