BSB are hardly the only ones to blame for this. I'll never blame them for their fervor to perform. Blame the radio station too if you're going to jump on the boys-- The boys did EVERYTHING in their power they could. Also, blame the DJ who said that BSB would be 80% of the set since they were the headlining act.

Fans always want more. We love seeing BSB sing live. They're obviously talented you can tell, and they'll do everything in their power they could, short of spending all night and into the wee hours of the morning at the venue.

I attended the BSB show Thursday night and wrote a letter to Kiss 95.7 asking them what had happened that night and who was to blame. They said that it was up to the BSB management on how long the boys would play. I told them that if that was the case why did they headline the concert BSB if they didn't even play longer then any of the other bands? I also mentioned how people traveled so far including the BSB and how it was just a waste of time for everybody but the performance the BSB put on was fantastic. Then Stan (from kiss) wrote back saying how he was sorry for the confusion and that they had nothing to do with it it was up to the webster and the BSB and that i should contact the BSB stating that i should complain to them because they obviously don't want to hear it. So i emailed him back and said to give me their information and i still have yet to hear back until i check my email at work on monday. Kiss was very rude and kept all responses short. I was also going to add about security there and how anyone could just walk in and out without being checked like i did. Anyone could have walked in their with a weapon and could have hurt someone. I will never attend any function of Kiss 95.7 or The Webster. Everything you stated in your article was perfect!!!! Including the part about Karmina. There sound check sounded great and i wanted to get their cd then i couldn't here a word they were saying when they were playing. So i didn't bother but i did purchase the Columbia Fields cd. I really would like a refund or they should come back and perform another concert or something.

Wow jughead, how old are YOU? I'm 41 and I can not WAIT for BSB to come to Miami. You don't like them, fine, but at least respect the talent, jerk. You're rude for no reason.

You mean respect the idolization of normal people because they're famous. Get a life Dee. A million people in this country can sing just as well as they can, but they got lucky and got the promotion.
