Elton John: Fans entitled to partial refund after Auckland concert cut short

Brian from New Lynn

Sir Elton John fans who attended Sunday's Auckland show cut short after the superstar became ill could be entitled to partial refunds, Consumer NZ says. And as fans for tomorrow night's rescheduled show scramble to change their plans, Jetstar said this morning they will move flights free … View moreSir Elton John fans who attended Sunday's Auckland show cut short after the superstar became ill could be entitled to partial refunds, Consumer NZ says. And as fans for tomorrow night's rescheduled show scramble to change their plans, Jetstar said this morning they will move flights free of charge. But some customers were already out of pocket, having been told they had to pay to rebook. John, 72, left the stage in tears about two thirds of the way through Sunday's Mt Smart performance as his voice deserted him. Medical staff rushed to give John, suffering from walking pneumonia, oxygen on stage as he told them he felt dizzy. He eventually had to end the show after hammering out 16 of the 25 songs on his set list. The next Auckland show has been rescheduled from tonight to Wednesday. Thursday's remains the same.
Concert promoter Michael Chugg said those who attended the performance won't get a refund for the shortened performance as John "played over two hours". But Consumer NZ's head of research Jessica Wilson told Newstalk ZB's Mike Hosking this morning that as fans only saw about two thirds of the promised set list, they could be in for a partial refund. "It is a contract. People have bought tickets to an event, the advertiser promised a full Elton John concert, and they only got part of it, they could get a partial refund. People should only pay for what they receive." There was precedent in that concertgoers received refunds when a headline act pulled out from a multi-artist bill, she said.
Her advice was for disgruntled fans to go back to the ticket agent, and if that was not successful they could take their case to the disputes tribunal. "If you have forked out several hundred dollars in the expectation this could be the last chance you get to see Elton John, and you did not get that experience, you might likely think it is worth pursuing." Any refund could be proportional to the experience not received, so in this case about a third, Wilson said. According to the Ticketmaster website, all sales were final and there were no refunds, exchanges or cancellations except when required by law. People can also submit a refund request through the website. Air New Zealand said it has introduced special fare flexibility to those affected by the rescheduling of the Tuesday show. "As a gesture of goodwill, Air New Zealand is offering customers affected by this change the opportunity to defer travel plans by one day without cost by calling its contact centre," Air New Zealand said in a statement. "The airline will waive any service fees or fare difference associated with moving the booking."
Passengers who no longer want to travel can choose to the hold the value of their fare in credit for up to 12 months. Service fees will be waived but any fare difference will apply. And a Jetstar spokesperson said this morning that anyone with a ticket for the rescheduled gig could move their flight free of charge. But earlier, a fan, Lorraine, told she and her husband had initially been informed by Jetstar they had to cover the cost of rescheduling their return flights from Wellington themselves, which was about $900. Instead, they forfeited the return flights and purchased two new ones for about $300, but also had to pay for an extra night's accommodation and take another day off work. "My husband phoned them yesterday, as soon as we found out. They said we would have to pay for the transfer. "There will be a lot of people who had to change flights yesterday... and paid that extra money. They should have [announced it] straight away." John, who had earlier needed medical assistance while on stage, broke down in tears on Sunday evening and needed to be assisted from the stage after attempting to launch into Daniel. Walking pneumonia is an infection caused by bacteria that primarily affects an individual's lower and upper respiratory tract. The condition is not as severe as the other forms of pneumonia and in most cases hospitalisation and bed rest are not required for recovery. It goes unnoticed and feels similar to the common cold for most individuals. Fans praised John's work ethic on social media, thanking him for giving the performance all he had. "Sir Elton John, what a great concert," wrote one. "Very sad to see you leave but the concert was amazing, you did the best you could." John later reached out to fans, thanking them for their support and saying he was upset that he could not complete the show. "I played and sang my heart out, until my voice could sing no more. I'm disappointed, deeply upset and sorry. I gave it all I had. Thank you so much for your extraordinary support and all the love you showed me during tonight's performance. I am eternally grateful."

Almost half of NZ students not attending school regularly

Brian from New Lynn

Ministry of Education data provided voluntarily by 2184 schools for Term 2 last year showed one in five children missed the last day of term and the lowest attendance was on Fridays and Mondays. Associate Education Minister Tracey Martin says it's not a good look and improvement must be made. … View moreMinistry of Education data provided voluntarily by 2184 schools for Term 2 last year showed one in five children missed the last day of term and the lowest attendance was on Fridays and Mondays. Associate Education Minister Tracey Martin says it's not a good look and improvement must be made. "That Friday, that child might miss the connecting piece to the next piece of learning which puts them behind their peers - it's important," she told. "Every day that school is open, children should be at school - it's the message we send to children about how important their education is." Greenmeadows Intermediate School principal Cathy Chalmers says regular attendance has been declining at her Manurewa school for the last five years. Students can only miss four days of school a term to maintain regular attendance. "It's becoming more common for parents to take advantage of cheaper airfares to take holidays during term time," Ms Chalmers says. "If it's a long weekend we have a much higher number of students away on the Friday of the long weekend as parents take advantage to get away early."
Ms Chalmers says students who don't attend school regularly don't have the opportunity to have consistency in their learning, which is needed to maintain achievement levels. The data showed 58 per cent of students attended school regularly, compared to 64 per cent in 2018, and 70 per cent in 2015. "Three-quarters of justified absence cases were reportedly due to illness. Just over half of unjustified absence cases were recorded truancies or unable to be explained," a data summary from the Ministry of Education states. "Although regular attendance has declined across all demographics since 2015, the largest declines have been seen across year levels 1-8 and among Māori and Pacific students." All schools will be asked to record attendance data for the whole year to build a better understanding of the issue. In the meantime, the Government has announced a pilot programme for Kawerau and South Auckland, which sees groups of schools have control over how to deal with truancy in their areas, including the ability to hire local attendance officers. The decision to change from district attendance officers to contracted providers was made under the previous Government in 2013. Ms Chalmers says having the contracted organisation not based in the community was an issue, so she supports the new pilot structure.
"It just makes that direct link between schools and the families. It will help build relationships with those families," she says. "Schools will have ownership over the delivery of the attendance service, which perhaps currently we don't have as much as what we'd like to have." The pilot has started in Kawerau and will start in April in South Auckland, running through until December 2021. "This will allow time to collect good information. A full evaluation will be undertaken during 2021.
