VIP FEEDBACK

Sun, Apr 22, 2012 at 12:22 PM

Hey all I wanna hear everyone's VIP experience feedback (good or bad) and would appreciate if we can keep them all in this thread.

This way if I have to direct anyone at Ground ctrl to this thread it will be easy and organized into one thread instead of scattered.

Thank You!
Dom

    I attended the Bossier City, LA concert. I bought the Gold VIP pass because the Silver package did not include the meet & greet. That is the way it was advertised. Yet why is it that Silver package ticket holders got to attended the meet & greet and have their photo taken? I love Godsmack's music. It was always my dream to see them in concert. I finally got my dream just to be disappointed with the meet & greet. There wasn't any meet & greet... just rush rush and hurry the hell up. Stand in this line, stand in that line. Get your stuff, have one thing signed, get back in line. The lady taking the photos was extremely rude. Majority of us standing in line were laughing and cutting up and talking amongst each other. I bought 2 VIP Gold packages at $180 a piece. I really felt it wasn't worth the price.

    On an ending note, I will say that Godsmack's stage performance is out of this world for a concert! They do put on an awesome show! But, sadly, I will not be buying a VIP package again. I'm hoping to catch a show on Sully's Avalon tour...... but no VIP package for me.

    and just to make a point elly. i would of done the vip but a friend brought my ticket for me and i did not think it was right to ask her to pay 100 dollars more.
    i agree with dom. i was lucky, right place right time for me.
    vip is easier

    I was very happy with the experience overall. My only request would be to email the details for when and where to meet at least a week in advance so people can plan. I was leaving from work and needed to let them know what time, but I didn't get the information until the night before the show.
    It turns to silence, a silence sometimes I can hear
    Internal violence, a struggle deep within
    What if
    What if I leave could I still breathe
    What if I breathe could I still be
    And if I leave would I be me
    What if, what if

    I strongly agree. Although I ended up missing a recent VIP, I still received the email notification (less than the promised 48 hours prior I might add).

    Reading the reviews here it seems like the meet time is normally at roughly 4:15 or so. Why not tell people that one week (or more) before with a caveat that the time may shift slightly and will be 100% confirmed 48 hours prior?

    For $160 we would be paying for them to send two emails rather than one. Seems reasonable to me.

    I bought VIP for Halestorm in July and have already received more emails and information from Artist Arena than I ever did from ground(ctrl). They've already sent me an email with a rough idea of when and where I should be... and the show is still 2 months away!

    where does one find the VIP for Halestorm? I can see tons of tour dates, but no info about that.

    ^ The Halestorm website in general (and Board and Event areas specifically) has to be one of the most confusing and cumbersome series of band pages ever. It's all there, it's just next to impossible to find anything and when you do the pages take too long to load. Their old site was simple, this new one is horrible.

    You have to register with Artist Arena HERE

    Once that's done, the VIP purchase is fairly simple (and incredibly inexpensive).

    Wow, I'm already registered, and I can't believe that price. OOOH, this is gonna be good. Theyr'e all through Texas the week of my birthday, so guess who's gonna see Halestorm again?

    That's funny. They're in Toronto the week of my birthday as well.
    I know!! The price is ridiculously cheap. mmmmmmmmm Lzzy Hale.

    Yes, I am going. Have already purchased the VIP Meet & Greet package (for only $45!!!!)

    Halestorm are a bit outside of my normal listening but I grew to really appreciate them when they released "Live In Philly".
    They're the real deal, no nonsense, straight up the middle, quality rock band.
    The musicianship and songwriting alone is enough for me to want to see them.

    And then there's Lzzy. 10 years from now people will still be talking about her. Mark my words.

    Yes, Gojira are great. I almost saw them open for Lamb Of God in 2007 but I got there a bit too late and totally missed Gojira's set. Oops.
    They're playing in Toronto this summer (with Lamb Of God again). Gonna try not to miss them this time around.

    omg, Sorry Dom. I have been murdering your VIP Feedback thread. Very very sorry.

    Halestorm's drummer is really good, real nice kid too. He adores Shannon! (I say kid cause he is a youngster, well compared to me that is).

    Seems I've missed out on quite a bit lately....been pre-occupied with work & haven't had chance to go online other than with cellphone, which is shitting the bed daily, and new one will arrive today. Halestorm VIP for $45? They kicked ass in the "Bing" and both Les and I would love to see them, either as opening band or headliner....
