Progressive Nation 09 (Europe) Dream Theater, Opeth, Bigelf & Unexpect
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Tues      Oct 6th - Ahoy - Rotterdam, Netherlands  NEW!!!!!!


I was already afraid this would happen  Sad Although I'm sure a lot of people want to see the other bands besides DT, I just want to see Dream Theater.
I guess I have to wait and see if they come back to Holland with a headlining show, otherwise I think we might have to go to Gelsenkirchen in Germany.

No, it was a mix up... Weymolith made a correction on MP.com.

Still no italian date(s) but uh well, they will come... I'm still undecided however if seeing three bands I don't know / don't like and then 90 minutes of DT.... I'll make a decision closer to the gigs, after all, here DT haven't sold out a show yet and they get the biggest avalaible venue anyway, so... no need to hurry....

125 euro? Man this is too much. Don't they know about the recession? Fan zone ticket is quarter cheaper. No way...  Cry  Cry  Cry

It's always been that much... I've just figured that if i can meet them ONCE.... it's worth the $300-$350 it would cost me...

 Huh  Huh  I have always thought that making people pay to meet the band is a really rotten, elitist thing to do......why is it only people with money are allowed the oppportunity??  Instead, if what some people say, i.e.making more money is indeed NOT the movitation behind meet n' greets, why not offer a lottery to ticket purchasers who desire their names be entered and draw a few names each concert for a free meet n' greet??  That way everyone has an equal chance of being chosen and hard working fans wouldn't be required  spend to far to much money in addtion to skyrocketing ticket prices, money that, particulary in these hard economic times, is probably needed elsewhere.   I mean c'mon.....$300-$350 to meet a few people for 5 minutes max, get a photo that often times is not very good, a t-shirt and a badge??  That comes to about $43.00 per minute, when you include the fee for the pic and the price of the t-shirt......that's $2580.00 per hour.......I don't know that it is worth paying that much to meet anyone! 

While I know it can be a thrill to meet someone you admire, in the whole scheme of the world, don't you have a lot better, more lasting things you could use that kind of money for??  A new instrument??  Recording equipment??  A vacation for a week??  A semester at school? 

Ask some people who have paid for the meet n' greet packages......some have pretty horrific stories to tell......

There are bands who charge that for a ticket normally. I understand what you are saying...

but think about it like this, there are some of us who will be luck to even see the band once. It would be worth the money to at least have one dream fulfilled.

Hm. 

I agree with you Subu, believe me.  However you and I come from a different "school" or a different "era" if you will, where paying money to meet a band is really something that seems absurd.  I'm being very honest here.  I wouldn't at THIS AGE, pay the money.  I have a family and yes, I do have better things to spend $250-$400 on - especially for now that I am living in a one income household --- and hopefully, a vacation coming in 4 weeks! 

 I was also discouraged by my parents to NOT fall for that kind of thing.  Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I used to be GAGA 10000000000% over Def Leppard and Triumph, but to my dismay, and my upbringing, I really never even got to even SEE them in concert in their "Hay Day" (sp??)  let alone pay to meet them.  This kind of "promotion" really wasn't a huge thing in the 80's that I was exposed to.   I have to chuckle as my mom STILL uses the line:  "Why don't you just give ME the $xxxx(insert amount here) you spent for that concert ticket???  I raised you for 23 years, and I'll even give you FOOD for that money!  Heck, I even sing for you!"  LOL!!    Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy   I love my Mamma. 

There is a difference in thinking here for sure.  While I understand the desire to meet the band to tell them how much they are appreciated, and what not, I on the other hand, can't justify the money myself.   There are many factors that divide us as people.  Subu is just giving wisdom - and girlfriend is awesome at that.   Kiss Kiss She does it out of concern.  Remember, we were young once too!  We were fans of bands PRIOR to DT and had strong convictions for them. 

But, if this is something you REALLY want to do, just do it wisely; don't put YOURSELF out for it.  YOU w3, are more important here, in this scenario.  "Kay, darlin'?
