    Default VIP tickets?

    Has anyone here done the soundcheck 'front row' experience on previous tours? More importantly can they recommend it?

    Are you permitted to take photos and how long does it typically last? What sort of time would you need to be at the venue before etc. does Dave actually even do soundchecks!!

    I realise there is no hint of it in the description but has anyone 'met' (however briefly) the band or got an autograph?

    I wish they would do something like the Kiss meet and greets!

    I did the VIP experience at the Biloxi, MS show in September 2004. I got to watch Ed right in front of me and shook his hand as he left the stage. Well worth the $$ spent.

    Did the VIP in 2012 Vegas and LA.
    Dave is not at sound check.
    No autographs form anyone in the band.
    Sound check is great to see...
    No camera's no videos.
    Security is very strict & keeps a eye on everyone.

    The one time I did VIP in Greensboro NC on the first Roth/Wolf tour nobody was allowed in soundcheck because on opening night someone apparently was an asshole and Ed shut it down. I guess it its a wall of security now between you and the band and they got it figured out. There's no meet and greet you might meet a band member in the halls on the tour of the stage. The food is less than gourmet considering what you pay the bar is good. I won't do it ever again but I'm glad I did it once. My group did meet DLR in the hall.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    What's the best way to address questions concerning VIP packages?

    I need to know details on parking and soundcheck timing as I'm attending with 2 kids.

    I've been trying to contact a venue concerning this matter (I already purchased the tickets) with no success. Any suggestion?

    When I bought my VIP tickets for Bonner Springs, KS I got an email back form Ticketmaster saying they would inform me later regarding the details. I have not received anything yet. Has anyone received info on where to go and when?

    I did VIP as well, though my date isn't until Aug 1
    They say 2-3 days prior to the event you'll get an email from On the List Presents (VIP@OTLPresents.com) for instructions and the VIP tickets can only be picked up at the VIP area. You can also call at 877-484-7858

    Hope this helps, maybe check your spam folder

    I got the front row package for Pittsburgh. Received an email 3 weeks ago requesting the size of the hoodie that comes in the package. So far, that's it.
