Flo Brian - seriously? First of all people who pay good money are entitled to offer their opinion be it positive or negative. Second ZZ Top generally plays less than 90 minutes, they NEVER plays for 2 hours. Thirsd I am grateful these comments are posted, I bought a m&g package for Winnipeg and at least now I can prepare myself for the disappointment. If it turns out good then that will be an added bonus.
How far in advance did you get your email regarding your meet & greet times? I purchased for Winnipeg next week (March 13) and am still waiting some sort of email.
Well, I already bought the VIP package for an upcoming show, hope it is a bit friendlier?? I can understand no hand shaking, they can't afford to get sick while they are touring. I thought perhaps they would let us take a pic with our own camera, apparently not. Wish me luck, still looking forward to a fun time!
I am an avid ZZ Top fan, and just love the opportunity they continuously give, by playing the amount of gigs they do... I will see them at multiple venues in the same state, I am amazed on how they deliver...You would think during the same year and tour you would only get the same "Show" but you don't, it's always different and always equally great!!! Thank you ZZTop!!!
As for the many, many whiners here... How dare you? You get what you pay for, I am thankful they allow this opportunity to even exist, for $149 you receive EXACTLY what is advertised:
Q&A Session with ZZ Top ( May be limited to a few quick ones, I'd say write them down and be prepared, you can't expect a sit down interview, especially after a 2 hr concert, they spent all day getting to)
Photograph with ZZ Top ( You get a few shots right there with the guys, GREAT!!!)
ZZ Top Poster ( You get a poster!!!)
Commemorative VIP Laminate and Lanyard ( ANd a cool deal you can hang where ever to remind you of the day!!!)
Heck... I'd would assume they are tired and their hands are tired also...I can't make any excuses for their Mgr...But hey give the guys a break, you get what you pay for...
Again I hope they continue doing what they been doing for the last 40 yrs... Thank you for this opportunity and hope it continues in the future...
i wish i had read all these comments before i bought the meet and greet.everyone is dead on.the q&a consisted of 3 questions.i understand the no handshakes cause these guys make their living with their hands. that's ok.but not signing autographs for 20 people??inexcusable..5 days later the photos are'nt even posted yet when pablo swore they'd be up the nex day.so please save your money these guys are'nt worth it.just enjoy the show. i feel totally ripped off.
I wish I had read this as well. My buddy and I drove to Casino Rama after buying the Diamond passes what a joke. The show was great in the front row but very short an hour and half. Then the meet and greet we were jammed into a room and told by Pablo no autographs, or hand shakes. Then a bunch of high rollers from the casino got to come in for FREE and get there pictures taken first. Then we were rushed through its a photo and out you go.
So $150 extra for a photo laminate and poster. Why give us a poster if your not going to sign it or sign it prior to giving it to us with a bag it might rain. There were a few people at end of line came out with signed photos I think they worked for the radio station very disappointing. Nov 9th 2013 Casino Rama BUYER BEWARE
I was about to get on here to post the exact same thing! What a disappointment and huge let down!!!
I'm glad I read all these comments before buying the m&g package. That many people can't all be wrong.
I guess I should have read the blogs before purchasing the "VIP" package. Wife and I went to the show in Conhco, Ok in May. 2013. Expected alot more for my hard earned money. The show itself was great. Got the lanyards, poster and photo to rememeber the experince. The photo turned out very good. Recieved the poster right after the meet and greet.
Well thinking that the meet and greet would be different the second time around I bought the "VIP" package for the Austin, Texas (Oct 9th 2013) show. NOT!!! Got the poster before the show and had to carry it around the whole time.The photo didn't turn out very good due to the fact that they must have fired the photograper that did the photos for the Concho meet and greet.
Would I do or recoomend the "VIP package deal again - HELL NO!!!!
I would rather spent the extra bucks on front row tickets.
P.S. Why aren't there any dates on these blogs???
