Warped Tour questions (in description)?
On MeetGreet tickets/passes...These come out at the time that the ticket go on sales,
HOWEVER these MeetGreets cost A LOT more than regular tickets and are available in a limited number.......
Also, sometimes(depending on the artist or group), these MG tickets
are offered FIRST to members of official fan clubs or ONLY OFFERED to members
of official fan clubs. You won't know if these MEETGREET tickets are even available
until the tickets officially go on sale.
ALSO NOT ALL concerts will have these MeetGreet Tickets available, it depends
on the artist and the promoters of the concerts.
Again, you won't know if there are MeetGreet tickets even available on this
concert you want to go to.
If you can't find them for sale at the box office or thru an online place like
ticketmaster.com it is more likely that MG are not even being offer at the
concert event you want to go to.
On the subject of backstage passes.....
One thing backstage passes are NOT SOLD at the box office or thru any
online ticket place like Ticketmaster. Or sold on any website for that matter.
You either have to be working with the band or the concert or know someone personally that is connected directly to the band, promoters or the concert....
or personally know a member of the band..
There are FOUR WAYS to get a backstage pass. From somebody that posted this information here on Yahoo Answers in the past. That is really knowledgeable
on this subjectsome editing of my NYC experience on this.
You must KNOW someone connected with the band or tour, more like a relative that works for the band/concert/promoters. Or, if you are lucky have a friend or a neighbor that has a relative that works for the band or the promoters directly. Or somebody you personally knows that
works for the band or promoters directly that has these connections.
Be a news reporter. You would have to be one connected to your local newspaper or local TV/radio news team. Also, people that are internet news bloggers very rarely get these unless they are very well know in the news industry. I have seen a few teens that get a website
and claim they are a news blogger (Sorry, that just don't cut it).
Also, the news people can't just show up with their news crew and be let
in backstage. They have to arrange this in advance. Especially these days.
A local radio station will sometime have a backstage pass or two of the concert
and offer it as a promotional prize.
Either you have to be the 7th or 10th or 12th caller.
Or hope that the entry form you filled out gets picked out by the radio DJ or whoever they
have in a random drawing at the radio station.
Sometimes a person will have one and will sell it on EBAY online auction or Craigslist
and EXPECT to pay REALLY BIG DOLLARS (like hundreds or thousands) for one.
You have to be careful when buying these from these websites. Some people I have seen
that show up at a concert and pay $300.00 and more on one only to learn that
the backstage pass they bought is nothing but a laminated fake that someone made on
his home computer that security can easily spot.
Some of these backstage passes have bar codes or security strips on
them, depending on the agents and promoters.
On some concerts the promoters will give a backstage pass to a person. Sometime these backstage passes are not transferable. If the person is not the name on the ID code
on this backstage pass they could be in some trouble.
Those are the ONLY WAY you will get a backstage pass legally.
Thank the Lord for the copypaste option on IExplorer so I don't have to type the
above information again when people ask this question.
