Tool Fan Talks About His $500 VIP Experience
We love tossin' out free concert tickets and getting you backstage for those "money can't buy experiences" with the bands. Well sometimes money CAN buy you some time with your favorite artists. I've heard many different opinions on this subject.
This week is #tooluary for me, where I see my favorite group #tool perform 3 times in one week in the great state of #Texas ! This is from last #halloween talking with the drummer, #dannycarey , at the #toolvip event before #monstermashaz . Favorite living musician and all around great guy. Can't wait for the shows! #monstermashaz2015 @monstermashaz
Here are some other examples:
In 2014, Miley Cyrus charged $950 for a meet and greet package
Kiss is charging $1,000
Often times (but sometimes not) these VIP packages will have additional treats like upgraded tickets, band merchandise etc.
Do you think it's fair for the artist or band to charge large amounts of money for fans to meet them, after they've already purchased a ticket to see them live? Are the prices fair or too high? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page.
