Im not sure what’s up with those VIP NATION creatives who dream up what’s included in your VIP package when attending a concert. Having been a consumer of many of these VIP Packages…….the folks who put the program together need to be a little bit more creative when it comes to the “goodies” they usually throw in a cheap bag….coupled with the poorly catered food and “drink tickets.” All of a sudden the whole experience seems as watered down as a chocolatey Yoo-hoo.
The straw that broke the camel’s back was the VIP gift provided for Roger Water’s Us + Them tour. A huge box….that won’t fit anywhere except the attic or storage. What an environmental waste. To boot, a commemorative Us + Them coffee mug, and even “Made in America.” In addition to the mug, a commemorative ticket and lanyard sheik rapped in KINKOS plastic laminate. The 5 prints were all cool expect for the stark “US+Them” tour poster.
A couple of questions to the VIP Nation Producers:
- Why not REALLY print only a couple hundred commemorative tour shirts? Low hanging fruit.
- Get rid of the lanyard and cheap commemorative ticket lameness.
- Some other goodie bag suggestions could be a key chain; quality water bottle; special band patches to sew on clothes; decent back pack; USB thumb drives with special content.
