Just for discussion, I'm going to respond here with the other side of the coin, as someone who attended 2 meet and greets last year in the US. First, I have no idea how the seating is in Brussels - are there assigned seats, or is it a "run for the barrier" type of show? It seems that from the European reviews I read, you all try to secure your spots at the front. Well, for many of the shows here (including 3 that I attended last year), you have to buy your specific seats, and there is no way to get up front unless you buy from a ticket broker, which can cost a fortune. I also wanted to secure my spot in the front.
In the case of the VIP packages last year, although it was great to meet the band and get a photo (and gift bag as well), the main reason I got the package was for the tickets. The VIP packages were not strictly a purchase of a quick meet and the photo - you were purchasing the tickets as well!I had front row both times, and the last show in Chicago was especially worth it, since I don't know if I"ll have the chance to see them again. This was the show with Michael Schenker, and my seats were in the front row, center, with no barrier, leaning on the stage. After seeing some of the videos, I even remember Len commenting on how she couldn't believe the amount of space that I had at my seat. I don't know how I'd feel about it if it was general admission seating, but for me, it was a fabulous night. Fun with fans before the concert, a quick meeting with the band, some "souvenirs" (including a t-shirt that my son wears all the time ) and great seats for the concert, up close and personal. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and for me it was a completely positive experience. I think it's been portrayed by some on here as completely negative (like Cristy who kept calling it a travesty) but I didn't feel that way at all.
