Ok, I am reposting to this thread too from another thread -

I agree with all of you. I seriously consdered not renewing, which would have been easy since my credit card expiration date had changed, but I held out hope we'd get the pre-sales. Now I am only in it for the Frynds.

I joined the Joe Bonamassa fan club which was FREE!!!!!! so I could get pre-sales for his shows too. I signed up the same day that a presale was happening in a city I could get to and when I e-mailed them for the presale code, their fan club management sent it to me w/in 15 minutes! Now how's that for service!! I got 3rd row tickets about an hour and 15 minutes after the pre-sale started. I was a very happy rocker! The fans on that site, however, would not help a newbie out w/pre-sale codes - they kept spouting off about scalpers. I can appreciate that danger, but they were no help. So I opted out of getting e-mail updates from the postings and am just sticking to basic stuff. All for FREE, FREE, FREE!!!!

AA - are you reading us??? I did post on JB's fan club pages that the company who runs his site, was much more user friend and helpful than this fan club management.

So glad you asked this question. Is anyone else upset about getting the same T-Shirt for the third year? Questioned it last year but was oh well, I'll just give it to a friend of mine but for the third year in a row, come on, how hard is it to change the design on a T-shirt? When I sent Artist Arena an email about it, they basically told me I was SOL. I think it's time the band checked into new management for their fan club because this company is not representing the greatest band ever as they should be represented!

I wish I knew this before I joined today. But without joining you don't get the message board then you find out there's something fishy going on.

Has anyone considered contacting the boss of bosses Gary Haber?

If you want something done then contact the top dog:

I hear you guys. part of the reason i joined was for pre-sale opportunities and good seats. I bought Memphis tickets (31 August show) the second they went on sale and my only only choice was on the LAWN!! I am with several bands fan clubs and ALL of the other sites allow fan club members to have first dibs on great seats. Some casual fan off the street will have better tickets than me!

Someone mentioned backstage/VIP passes; that needs to be standardized. Most bands have a standard time alloted for 20-30 fans to come back stage for autographs and pictures every show..not just random ones.

If Artist Arena would just set some procedures in stone, and make being a fan club member somehow beneficial, everything would be fine.

Try contacting band management.

Vector Management
Ken Levitan and Ross Schilling
P.O. Box 120479. Nashville, TN 37212.
Phone: 615-269-6600

Tell Ross you'll wash & wax his pink Caddy for him.
That might help
But don't expect any changes because this has been going on for years.
I know, I've tried. I've beat my head into the wall too many times over this.
You fix it, I'll give you full credit.

I cannot bitch, they helped my frynd when he needed it most. Johnny too.
Wish I could talk about it.
That is all...

I'm Back You Bastards!
