Something i happen to notice is i have'nt heard the usual tales of fans meeting memebers of the Band before or after a show this time around. Maybe i am just missing these stories since i don't read too many post topics here...i don't know....but i have noticed no one has had much to say in this subject.

So out of curiousity, has anyone met one of the Bandmembers during this current Tour? This is for this Tour only...not the pre-tour shows in NJ or LA.

I'd like to hear about others adventures.....so please post if you have some honest experiences.

Wish I had something to report, but honestly I was more worried about getting lost going to the different cities than trying to meet them this go around..;-)

Heard the band is not doing the meet and greet "so much" this time around with fans.

True. In St. Paul the band were "running late" (which I believe, as the show started at least 15 minutes behind) and the meet & greet was cancelled. There were mostly radio people, but I met the guy who interviewed Brian for The Onion, and a lady who knew Brian from their being at a spa together. (Both were guests of Brian himself.)

It was also to dang cold to hang around at most of the venues to try and meet them. We waited around for a while in Chicago but had to leave as it was just way too cold.

They kicked us out fairly early in Chicago, Threatening to lock us in and tow our cars.

Just try talking to the crew guys before/after the show. Without even asking they told me exactly where they would be after the Milwaukee show and invited me to hang out. Sure enough, the guys were there - well, Brian and Roger were along with Danny and Jamie. Danny was REALLY wasted and was giving out his email address to everyone. LOL!!!

Did you get any pics?
I've heard of a few people meeting them at the hotel after the Milwaukee show. But that's about it, so far.

I'm surprised that they're not making more of an effort to "shmooze" with their fans during this "re-conquering of America" tour. It's a little disappointing. I was going to wait outside after the Atlanta show, but it was 39 degrees F.

Girls, you have to put out to the roadies in order to get a shot to meeting the band.

Things haven't changed that much since the 80s.

You don't actually have to "put-out" you just have to flirt a little. ;)

Also, if you are a chick it doesn't hurt to be somewhat skanky, and whored out....

For example:

Chain smoking
Fake Tanning
Beer in hand
Thong showing with a glimpse of your tramp stamp.

What's a tramp stamp??

That's the real slutty tatoo's the "virgins" here in the USA get on their lower backs and "accidently" show when they are bending over or reaching for something.

A tramp stamp gets you backstage faster than anything.


Having a smoking area in a restaurant is like having a pissing section in a swimming pool

Mr. Jingles, I beg to differ....that may be the stereotype to get passes and to be a "groupie" but believe me, it's not always the case.

I'd say a little luck and a whole lot of "being in the right place at the right time" makes all the difference in the world.

Not being a pest helps too....and not constantly in pursuit of gaining anything is also a plus.

Roadies are people too...respect them as such! :)
