I'd happily pay 100 euros or more to see Brian and Roger perform a charity gig for fans with all proceeds going to the MPT. But sponsoring a digital star or something on a three year old website, no thanks.

It's just a donation, Pim. The sponsoring of the star is only making it more attractive for some people to donate - and being able to leave a message "for Freddie". Usually, a donation means giving something for a cause you believe in without getting something in return. Buying a ticket to see a well known artist perform is not an act of selfless giving. The selfless giving is done by the artist performing for free :-)

The MPT could have a simple paypal link for donations but unfortunately, they do not have one - just the "sponsor the star"  version.


I do not want any google ads here.

Somebody has to pay much better attention to that website.  It's really a bad message to have it so out of date.  I know for a fact that it affects donations becasue a few months ago I visited it with the intention of contributing.  When I was met with 2 and 3 year old material I faltered and then left.
