MTV presents TMF rebranded as VIVA.The launch date is Monday 26 October from 4pm. Viva boasts new episodes of The Hills and Pants Off Dance Off. There’s also a brand new racing car show called Slips that’s hosted by Huey Morgan which will see two aspiring racing drivers pimp their vehicles and then race each other, think legal drag race and true to the illegal drag race subculture rules the winner takes home both cars. X factor winner and chart topper Alexandra Burke will present as well as performing tracks from her new album. As I was at the taping of VIVA live at MTV I can confirm that she really is a brilliant vocal talent and a true performer. Alexandra performed Hallelujah and They don’t know and Bad Boys in that order.
I have managed to secure myself tickets for Beyonce, Kanye West et al however when attempting to buy Jay-Z tickets this is never a successful transaction. After failing to obtain tickets for the Roundhouse, more tickets for the Alexandra Palace, 4th November show were on sale. I was ready from 8.45am with credit card in hand, heart beat racing while I was simultaneously attempting to book online and talk to the ticket master agent. After completing the online search form there were no tickets, thinking I had been clever I waited on the phone operative to search for my tickets. Only for him to tell me that the one hundred VIP tickets that were being released this morning had sold out. What is a real fan supposed to do?
