|Feeling a bit ripped off at the moment as I purchased VIP ticket for MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA concert which included meet and greet . Excitement turned into rage as package was cancelled and then finding out that TICKETEK has competition where if you purchase ticket from them you enter a draw to win a meet and greet the band. |
Some last minute half hearted fan no date will win and me I'll miss out cause i cant enter
Rob you should be looking after the real international fans like myself who will not get to see you metal gods ever again NOT the corporate money hungry, Know absolutely nothing and no doubt dont give a flying F**** about you or metal. I forked out a weeks wage for a chance yet all I got was a signed photo (thanks Heaps) of the band which puts me in a catch 22 frame of mind.

|Daguerreotypes are cool. |

|That would have been super cool |
Very old school. That would show how long you've been a fan of Judas Priest.

|I think a daguerreotype would have been better! Half plate? Quarter even? Beuller? Beuller?|

|GUIDO THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA --I DON'T HAVE MUCH KNOWLEDGE ABOUT PIXELS AND RESOLUTIONS BUT I FEEL THAT AFTER PAYING THAT MUCH MONEY WE SHOULD'VE BEEN SENT A LOT BETTER PIC THAN WHAT WE WERE.|

|Ok, good enough place to post this one.|
VIP pictures...why they took pictures with such a nice camera and only posted the really low resolution versions is maddening. My own point and shoot camera would have been hundreds of times better than the 85k or so jpg they posted. I printed a 4 x 6 and 8 x 10. The larger one, of course, is pixilated as all get-out and even the 4 x 6 shows some defects when printed (yeah, I am a perfectionist). 4x6 isn't even the native resolution, though. However with no photo printer, I am stuck with Wal-lyworld.
Instead of playing with the many software options to come up with a better 8x10, I plan to scan that 4x6 at max resolution and make an 8x10 of THAT scan. Anyone else have thoughts on the subject?

Thanks "Where Am I"? (love your 'bio-notes', btw ... if only we could all do that, eh?)
Looks like there are "NO" VIP Meet & Greets left ... Hmmm, what to do?
Hubbie says to ask anyone on the site if they are willing to sell theirs for $$ big bucks $$. I laughed my head off, just b/c I know no-one would give them up -- well, I wouldn't anyway! (He really wants to go see those damn bunnies, I think...)
So ... still waiting to book the flight & hotel, etc. (There's still some tix if we decide to go.)
Here's the deal, are there a bunch of people going to the Vegas show who want to meet before and after for a rockin' JP party somewhere, anywhere, and all over the place?
I believe the fans are a huge part of Priest, having the best fans in the world -- and we would love to party with a bunch of you. That would make it all worth it. Let me know "what's up" ...

LOL @ tuba! I have a brand new faded cherry Gibson Flying V!!! Yeah, they can't sign my butt....not unless they know how to write REALLY small.
If anyone else is doing the VIP party in Vegas, buzz me. I'm going stag and don't really know anyone.

C.J. Graham is a casino manager at The Palms in Las Vegas, according to his website.
If you want to hunt for his autograph.
C.J. Graham was Jason Voorhees in Jason VI. Horror movie buffs going to see Judas Priest, here's your chance.
He's actually rather good looking so chances are he is gay.

|Why, don't they have whiskey in Vegas ... ??? |
Got flights & hotel all good to go, *if/when* we get some VIP Meet & Greets -- any suggestions?
(Lori, will send a PM with any details. Wonder who else would be there to hook-up with???)

|Don't know about your butt, but they sure wouldn't let me in with my tuba! |
While on the subject of the Meet and Greet, let me take the time here to give a public THANKS to my buddy, Guitardude. You (all y'all .... heh) were SO kind. I really hope to be able to repay that kindness someday. After all, not every day when one can have an experience like that and even rarer to be able to share it with a friend. Thank you, my bro. I was glad to have been able to share that experience with you. Now let's pick another city and do it again!!
