YG is offering to have dinner with fans before his upcoming concerts in Santa Ana, California, in exchange for $1,000. The dinner is described as including a five-star, three-course meal as well as an opportunity to take a photo with the rapper. Additionally, there will be an open bar and gentleman’s club waitresses.

“I said I would never come back to the observatory but here I am,” YG captioned a flyer for the concert on Instagram. “BDAY VIBES LIVE CONCERT put that shitt on & come Fuck with me. UPSCALE EVENT!” YG will be turning 33 years old on March 9. Ty Dolla Sign commented flame emojis on the post.

YG’s Concert

Fans online had mostly positive responses to the offer from YG. “I’m trippin if I pay a rack to have dinner with yg [two face with hand over mouth emoijs],” tweeted one person. Another joked, “[I’m] fashoo trynna see YG in march [weary face emoji] LMFAOO but the dinner date for 1,000 he better lemme eat his ass or sum [rolling eyes, two weary face emojis].” One more fan tweeted: “If I was a huge YG fan, I wouldn’t trip over that at all. It’s a gaudy purchase, but that’s a pretty cool experience for a thousand bucks.” The concerts are scheduled for March 10 and 12 at the Observatory in Santa Ana.

For the same price, Chris Brown was reportedly charging fans for a meet and greet with him in 2022. It was during his One of Them Ones Tour with Lil Baby. Brown defended the controversial price at the time on Instagram. “PSA!!! When artists (everyone) do concerts, they all have something called a VIP package. I haven’t done meet and greets in over 7 years…” Brown wrote. “I have the coolest fans on the planet…I appreciate the fuck outta them. These are memories that will last with them forever. Unlike most of these lame-ass artists that won’t make eye contact with the people who made it possible to even have a career. I only exist because these fans saw something in me I never thought was possible… So Ima go all out for my fans!!!”
