So disappointed in our seats at the Vegas Manadalay Bay show! I purchased my tickets the day they went on presale through the fan club. We were in row V (row 22!) and there was a very large pit area. I asked everyone around us and rows ahead of us and most had purchased their tickets through Ticketmaster during public sale, some just a few months ago, and they were 10+ rows in front of us?! So I could have gotten better seats if I had purchased through Tickmaster on the day they went on sale to the public???!!! Where's the benefit of being a fan club member? There were other fan club members around us (some in front, some in back of us) and they were really disappointed too as this was also the worst seats that had every gotten through a fan club presale. I specifically join fan clubs for the presale as we spend a lot of time & money going to shows, and want good tickets. I am in everyone's fan club that I go to shows and I think EC has the worst fan club ever! This fan club says it offers Meet & Greets and presale tickets? Really??? One redeeming factor is that this fan club has some pretty incredible members and we were lucky enough to meet and spend some time with them at the pre show party at the Border Grill and we had a blast with them! That was the highlight of our trip.
Im sorry to hear this. I have never purchased seats without knowing 100% where I am sitting. I am super nervous about my seats for next weeks show but the seating chart during purchase showed the seats being reserved for fan club members. So I know I will be happy. Dont give up on this fan club. I have been in many fan clubs and this one is the best! He is so sweet and really cares for his fans. Trust me is must have been the venue that you went to b.c all fan club seats I have gotten have been AWESOME! Minus Jason Aldeans. I will not be renewing my fan club with him. I have better luck on public sale.
Those are fantastic seats!!! Lucky! :)
My Fan club seats ended up being third row center. I can't complain about that! :)
I uderstand what everyone is saying about the casino holding seats for their own use for high rollers etc but everyone I asked that were 10+ rows in front of us told me they had bought tickets on ticketmaster during public sale. No one said they were given tickets through Mandalay so i'm still mad! lol If fan club can't guarantee at least first 10 rows for fan club at a venue they shouldnt offer presale tickets for that venue. I would have gotten VIP tickets but there was none at Mandalay.
But I'm not gonna complain anymore about this, the show was fantastic!
I lived in Vegas for 2 years and it was impossible to get any great seats even if you were a fan of anyone. All the casinos keep them for their own use.
casino shows are ALWAYS going to be difficult to get the best seats for as many times the casino has seats reserved for high rollers and patrons of the casino first and foremost. many times, artists won't even have fan club seats available at casino venues because of that. the fact that he had fan club seats at all for this show is amazing. that sucks for sure, but seeing him is better than the alternative.
Bridgette, I was so sad for you and the other Choir members – those seats were definitely not fan club caliber seats! I would have been very upset as well. Plus, there was a lot of crazy going on back there, especially the Georgia boys with their apple pie moonshine! That stuff was potent. But the show was fantastic! We just barely made it to the LA show on Sunday night (bad traffic from Vegas to LA - six hours!) – show was fantastic as usual, and then went to taping of Jay Leno Tonight Show on Monday night to see Kip Moore, and tomorrow night EC again in Anaheim.
I was in pit but my sister-in-law and hubby got bad seats too they were just a few rows down from you. Very disappointing! Thety wanted to go back outside and see if they could get better seats from scalpers. you are rite highlight was our time at Broder Grill with Gia and friends,Scott, Michelle and the resst of you! Best time ever, I havwen't had that much fun in a long time! Thanks to all you crazies! No wonder Vegas motto is "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" lol!
Im sorry you were that far back. Sometimes it is just venue dependent..what the venue decides to give to the fan club, I would have been upset too though. Hope you enjoyed the show....
That's kind of shocking to hear normally he has all the best seats up front for the fan club presales. I'm sorry it didn't work out that way at your show and they put everyone in the back. Def not how it should be I've had that happen to me a few times through jason aldean's presales it was all nosebleed seats or seats way in the back on the floor so i never signed up for his club again but so far (knock on wood) i've only gotten pit tickets through erics site. Don't ever expect to get a meet and greet in this fanclub BUT be really excited if it ever happens. Don't give up on the fanclub just yet maybe they just messed up for that show...
