Title: VIP IE limited edition tour gift. what are your thoughts?
Post by: lemonPOP on July 04, 2015, 10:26:50 PM
I just received my vip limited tour gift for purchasing vip tickets.   It comes with some great highlights of all there tours, guitar picks, mini posters a bass drum head impact patch.  My son loved his and I think it's cool.  I haven't heard any discussion here about it.  I was curious what others thought.   Good enough or not?

Which VIP package did you purchase?

I've heard about the gift but didn't know really what was in it.

They were included with my vip ticket purchase.   I got two of them with two tickets.   I payed 240 each ticket.   I wasn't sure what to expect but I am pleased.  Can't figure how to post pics.  It also comes with a piece of the stage deck.  My son thought that was a cool part in particular.

I can't figure out how to post pictures.   It's driving me crazy.   Also my tickets was for Denver show and a cheaper vip than some offered on u2.com so the L.A shows one was mentioning was more expensive.

Not sure if some of you are being sarcastic or not.   IF so I have no reason or time to come on here and make things up.  Certainly I am not the only one that received the gift.  It has three pics with symbols on them, light bulb,  ie, and u2.  Also comes with a silver like concert ticket that is framed.  I decided to open mine because I have no intention of selling it.  The cool thing for me is the mini posters of all the tours and it has two patch like stickers of elevation and 360 tours.  It could have been made different though.   It's in a binder like book that makes it difficult to turn the page without damaging the page.  Overall it's wonderful and wish they would do this more often.   Also mine is numbered 12051 and 12052( something around there)  out of 29,999

From what I've read, I think you were probably sitting next to people who paid $300 for just the ticket, so you got a pretty good deal!

I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I have one of those packages for Paris so was keen to see what was in it.

Thanks!

I don't understand.  How did you get all that for only $240 when some of us here paid $300 just for a ticket??  Where did you purchase it and what show is the ticket for?

It was the Denver show and it was at the end.  So don't be to upset.   I bought them from u2.com and like I said the 300 tickets were better tickets,  but I didn't know at the time I was going to be at the end.  Still a good deal but tickets were going from 100 the night before close to my seats.   The seating chart is a whole other discussion.   However I am excited to receive two of these.  My son who is 12 has now seen them 4 times and he loves the gift.  The vip prices were different at each venue I believe.

The $240 VIP tickets were at the arena ends, where you wouldn't have a great view of the big screen. Not sure if they were behind the stage or right on the e-stage. I thought about buying one but didn't - now I wish I had!

Thanks for the explanation.  Despite where the seats were it's a pretty good deal.  I didn't even know u2.com was offering it.  I should pay more attention!

So I've done VIP for other bands and really thought it was a rip. It was a way to get in the pit...but thought the gift would add to the value.  It did not.. Crappy poster, laminated tag, and not great t-shirt.
This looks so worth it. I would have been thrilled to have that stuff...
