Singer-songwriter Apiwat "Stamp" Uaethavornsuk was immensely popular even before he started appearing as a coach on "The Voice", which has broadened his fan base further. People are prepared to get drastic for a chance to see him, along the lines of those



 

So heartbreak swept the land when Stamp had to cancel a much-anticipated concert last May, and there was misery every day that passed with no new date announced.
Let the bells ring and banners fly, though, because the wait is nearly over. The 30-year-old recently declared on Twitter that his “Stamp Krian Day” concert is set for next March 16. Ticket sales at CentralWorld on Wednesday had fans lining up early in the morning, the start of what would grow into a gigantic python of a queue. 
A high-school student who arrived early tweeted that she finally got her tickets at 2pm. Another woman joined the throng at 2 and scored her seats at 8. No one was complaining, though, because Stamp showed up in person to encourage the troops.
Needless to say, the show was sold out, but his label was ready with a second one, announced for 7pm on the same day. Tickets for that show are on sale today. Best of luck in the hunt. 
 
Rare sighting
 
Singer Tanakrit “Wan” Pannichawit and pimmadda borisuksupakorn have been an item for three years and yet the press rarely gets a photo of them together. Fortunately their friends Puri Hiranpruk and Alicha “Ann” Laisattruklai got married this week and photo ops abounded. 
They even answered reporters’ questions, a first for them as a pair. “So far so good!” Wan said of their relationship, notwithstanding its advanced age, but as to marriage, Pim said they’re still taking things a step at a time. 
Wan explained that they never appear on any magazine covers together, despite lucrative offers, because he’s “camera-shy and it’s hard enough when it’s just me. It would be really difficult posing with her!”
