Just saw on news saying that the Marina Bay Countdown organized by MediaCorp was cancel as the ticket sale was bad. Lol. I myself won't buy tickets just to countdown for new year. Besides, there's only Mediacorp artists performing and counting down, so I doubt people would even wanna buy the tickets just to see those Mediacorp stars.
I think it'll still work if they invite well-known singers or celebrities. Who will wanna buy tickets just to count down and see Mediacorp stars? Might as well countdown with your friends or go party.
