Superstars Of Tomorrow Chapter 442
Indeed, many people closely followed any news of Fang Zhao's graduation concert. Not everyone was Fang Zhao's fan, but they definitely had to attend the concert!
If they couldn't get an invitation letter, they would have to snatch others' admission tickets!
Graduation Concerts in the past by Twelve Tones advanced students were also full houses, but many seats were filled up by behind the scenes staff or other students. Generally, the public didn't pay too much attention. This time, Fang Zhao's graduation concert was different. After all, the concert details had yet to be announced, but the quota had already been filled.
People who had been camping on HuangArt's official platform to purchase tickets were dumbfounded as they stared at the large "sold out" on their screens.
Personnel from HuangArt already found it difficult to procure tickets, let alone people from other schools.
Silver Wing's side was allocated ten admission tickets because Fang Zhao was signed to them. However, it was still too little compared to how many Silver Wing personnel were interested in attending. Those who weren't allocated tickets had to find other means to obtain entry.
At a corner of the company, a few popular celebrities were currently having a hushed discussion.
"Aren't you in acting? What do you want admission tickets for?"
"Have you heard of being proficient in both acting and singing? I want to understand more on being a singer-actor."
"Only ten admission tickets? Is it really not hunger marketing by HuangArt?" someone asked.
Others stared at him as though he was stupid.
"Do you have some misunderstanding regarding 'God-level Advanced Course'?"
"Do you know what sort of people the mentors and teachers of this advanced course are?!"
"HuangArt allocated the majority of invitations to various big shots within the art circles from different continents. Therefore, there are limited spaces. Even Fang Zhao wouldn't have too many for himself. The company has already done very well to be able to obtain ten tickets. Look at other Yanzhou entertainment companies. They'll need to struggle to get even five!"
"If you can't get admission, you can try asking invitees who aren't planning on attending."
"Other people might be able to get this sort of invitation, but I reckon it would be difficult for this concert."
Zaro hadn't gotten sufficient headlines and attention from the All-star Match. The data and numbers were out. He was still doing fine in Leizhou, but his publicity on other continents had fallen. Thus, Leizhou netizens routinely ridiculed him.
After arguing with netizens online, he posted: Just you all wait and see!
And after that, it was really waiting.
People waited and waited, but there were no signs of activity.
Citizens of Leizhou knew that the Za-dog was rather forgetful. He could hold grudges for a long time, but he also frequently forgot other things he didn't deem important.
Just as Zaro was drafting a plan to get back against those netizens, he received a message from Chu Bo. Chu Bo wanted to attend Fang Zhao's graduation concert.
After going through his friend circles, Zaro found that Barbara and Mitisy had actually gotten their hands on admission tickets!
How could he fall behind when it came to this?!
Zaro immediately made a call to Fang Zhao and shamelessly asked for an admission ticket before running off to flaunt it to Woo Tianhao.
Woo Tianhao was busy with other matters recently and couldn't go join the fun even if he wanted to. In his delight, Zaro forgot all about the "You all just wait and see" matter. Instead, he went to make plans with Chu Bo for Fang Zhao's graduation concert.
Many people in each continent paid attention to news regarding Fang Zhao's graduation concert. In the past, Great-grandfather Fang wouldn't ignore this kind of news. But this time, he didn't only follow it online; he experienced it personally as well!
Decked in artsy attire and armed with a new walking stick, he arrived at HuangArt together with Great-grandmother Fang.
Although they had arrived earlier, they spent a few days visiting old friends because Great-grandfather Fang felt that Fang Zhao would surely be very busy. Thus, he didn't let Fang Zhao worry about them and only headed to HuangArt on the day of the graduation concert.
"You do what you have to. We know how to get there!"
After sending Fang Zhao a short message telling Fang Zhao not to worry about them, the two elders tidied their appearance in front of a mirror before calling a cab to HuangArt.
During graduation season, HuangArt would specially promote a few outstanding graduate students. HuangArt had special spots to publicize those in the advanced course. A large floating screen cycled through a display of brief descriptions and notices of forecasted works of the current batch of Twelve Tones graduates.
Fang Zhao's neighbor Will had an art exhibition, while Fang Zhao had his concert.
The two elders stood before the billboard screen and took many photos and videos to share with their friends online.
"Have you seen this?! So many impressive people, and my Little Zhao is the youngest!"
After chuckling and bragging, the smile on Great-grandfather Fang's face gradually dimmed when he saw the publicity shots of other students on the large screen.
"Say, after spending a year here, do you think Little Zhao has… has… has that?"
Great-grandfather Fang gave Great-grandmother Fang a "you-know-what" look.
As someone who kept up-to-date on news in the entertainment circles, Great-grandfather Fang had never seen Fang Zhao having any scandals or links with other female celebrities.
Most of Fang Zhao's class were old enough to be his parents or grandparents, so they were eliminated. If classmates weren't suitable, then what about fans?
"I heard that there are many young female students clamoring to get a chance to attend his concert."
The two elders arrived at the concert hall. They didn't enter, but instead loitered in the rest area outside the hall to observe other early arrivals to the concert.
"What do you think?"
"I feel that one won't do."
"Hey, old woman, look at the one in the corner…"
"I feel that way too."
"Perhaps some celebrity?"
"Wait, let me search… she's really a celebrity, but she's already married."
The two old Fang's either discussed quietly or communicated through text. It wouldn't be too nice if others heard what they were saying.
As they were discussing, a black ball rolled to their feet.
Great-grandfather Fang picked up the black ball and squeezed it. It felt rather nice.
Great-grandfather Fang beamed when he saw a little boy run over.
"Little friend, is this your ball?"
"Yes! It's called 'Little Riches'."
Great-grandfather Fang currently had no resistance against kids. His wrinkles were all creased from smiling. His gaze followed that little kid, and he saw the kid run over to the side of a young lady.
That young lady even smiled when Great-grandfather Fang looked over. Then, she pulled on the kid's hand and led him away.
Great-grandfather Fang's smile froze. He had a dazed look in his eyes.
So many years had passed. He had forgotten what that person looked like, but at that moment, he suddenly remembered.
Many years ago, Great-grandfather and Great-grandmother Fang had taken part in a military campaign when they had been on the Sirius. However, many people in that military campaign had signed confidentiality clauses. Even now, they couldn't mention it casually.
The personnel on the Sirius had been nearly wiped out back then. It was only thanks to timely reinforcements that they had been able to escape. The one leading the reinforcement team had been a woman.
What he remembered clearly wasn't that person's appearance, but the scene where the lady had ripped apart an armed battle droid with her bare hands.
Ah. Torn apart.
Great-grandfather Fang still felt the psychological trauma of that scene even today.
Senior officers explained that the rescue team were using exoskeleton suits that increased their power, but Great-grandfather Fang's psychological trauma never lessened. As someone who had personally witnessed the scene in close quarters, Great-grandfather Fang had always believed that there was more to it.
Great-grandfather Fang coughed lightly as he came back to his senses. His daze had lasted a little too long, and he didn't want his wife to misunderstand. Heh, that old woman just loved to get jealous.
Great-grandfather Fang was preparing an explanation as he turned his head and discovered Great-grandmother Fang staring intently in the direction those two were leaving in.
Great-grandfather Fang: "…"
"What are you looking at?! There's nothing to see! Let's go! The concert is about to start!" Great-grandfather Fang pulled Great-grandmother Fang towards the hall.
"Hey, old man, that person looks a little like…"
"No! You don't remember!"
"A descendant of an old friend?"
"Who cares who she is. Mind your own business!"
