Motley Crue fans have accused promoters of trying to milk fans for money with VIP Meet & Greet packages for the band’s summer 2020 stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett. They also discussed past meet and greets.
Stacebabe posted on Reddit, “Wild side is $4.5k!!! No way in hell!!” Jedifire wrote, “I didn’t pay, I was the plus one for a friend of mine who bought Nikki’s stage played bass. I don’t know what the price was, and my understanding was there were only two per show in the tour, but we got to spend about 10-15 minutes alone talking with Nikki (and photographer and assistant).
This was done I believe after the whole band meet and greet but I will say that it was nice to have an I rushed conversation with Nikki. That might be a better option for some of he is offering something similar in this tour. Sorry about rambling, I’ve had a few beers.”
Nikki Sixx called out a ‘punk’ on the Motley Crue tour. Androidcoma chimed in, “It’s not worth the $1500+, just from experience seeing other bands do it, it’s super quick, super impersonal, and the price this time around is flat out absurd vs if it was a few hundred bucks.
It’s definitely priced for the older crowd or anyone that’s well off that can afford it, ’cause it’s straight up luxury to pay that much just to get a quick photo and some things signed.
DHFatty commented, “From what I hear it’s awful. You take a picture and you’re shuffled out and then the next person comes in.” TimBarrows1994 said, “Damn really ? I was seriously about to pull the trigger..”
DHfatty said, “That’s what I heard from the farewell tour. Yeah don’t. I would just buy regular tickets honestly. Unless you want to just be able to be in their presence, 99.9% sure you don’t get to have any kind of casual conversation with them. And if I remember correctly, the meet and greet is at their discretion so if 1 of them doesn’t want to do it, they sit it out and you get a pic with 3 members.” Vince Neil ‘struggling’ to sing with Motley Crue was detailed by a big name recently.
