World famous? Some bloke who sings in Italian and a talentless bimbo.

Thai Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn says that he is also looking at the non-financial benefits of the planned appearances of two world famous artists, Thai-born pop artist Lalisa

Ohhhh, the best one this year.

Put the money where it's needed, to those currently starving while you numbnuts spend it on lavish events and buying up subs, totally disgusted to say the least !

Why do so many on here see this as an either/or situation?

Another straw bobs past down the Chao Prayha river, just out of reach!

 

As I said before, about the only positive thing is that Signor Bocelli can sing jolly loudly, so even with proper social distancing everyone will still be able to hear him!

Explaining his logic, the minister said he might think differently from people who only consider financial gain, to determine whether a project is worthwhile, noting the 200 million baht price tag for the appearances of the two famous artists.

This man only sees money... pure BS, he doesn't give a rats behind about anything else.

Just how are Lisa and a fat opera singer going to inspire the young and disabled by singing ?

You might want to "google" Andrea Bochelli he's the blind opera singer, his now deceased friend was the rotund singer Pavarotti.

Inspire them to do what? Learn Italian while eating Buriram meatballs?

Money well spent then...

I see he might go down well with the visually impaired then but I though it was about encouraging tourists?

What could inspire disabled people is for them to be able to access almost anything, or even use footpaths. If you care about disabled people then you need lifts and ramps not just in BKK ! Oh and maybe singing lessons.

If you need inspiration by disabled persons, why not give more shows around the disabled olympians???? Taht are Thai people who can inspire.... Not a blind singer or a thai born singer from a girlish Korean group

First came the idiotic idea.

 

Now comes the rationalization, "We're doing it for the children".

 

Pro tip: open the schools, and maybe a tad less indoctrination.

 

Many on thai social media are clamoring for the money to be used more wisely, like vaccines.

 

But 200 mm does buy a lot of lipstick.

 

Standing out for New Year's celebrations is challenging. Sydney, Dubai, Paris, London, NYC all garner the press. Yes, Lalisa will get a ton of coverage, but will that break through?

Ok, I'm not even going into the discussion about any Artists, no alcohol, no tourists, etc... 

 

But most youngsters and their parents are living quiet on their limit right now. And the care for the Disabled is absolutely appalling to say the least! 

 

Put the money elsewhere!

Concerts at year end sort of goes against the words of out great leader re 'keeping your guard up. No alcohol, large groups or parties' etc.

That is without even discussing social distancing and making everyone stick to their 2 square meters.

And all crowds limited to no more than 500 people as mandated.

Fat opera singer...:? he has lost quite a lot of weight and although he is not Pavarotti ( who was quite heavy). he does have a reputation. As for the inspiration, it might take root in the fact that the guy is blind

Now, I am not saying that he will, nor that the price tag is justified

Who also speaks 5 languages 🤔

Not unusual and this has nothing to do with brains. It is a gift.

Not saying the girl is brainless as I do not know her, in every sense of the term
