hey Guys at HQ, thank you so much for putting on the show in St. Louis last night. i do have one question that i am hoping could be answered. last night Me and my Fiance went expecting this VIP experience to be an awesome thing, apart from the acoustic set (which Rocked, definitely one of the highlights of the night), we were a little disappointed. the ticketmaster offer said the there would be 'a drink concierge (sp?)' (which didn't exist) and after the set, we had to fight our way though the crowd to get a good look at the stage (which by the time we finally got there we were both a little frustrated). i know nothing can be perfect and there is always someone complaining about something, but i was going to offer the suggestion that in the future, the wings of the stage could be reserved for those people with the VIP tickets to allow them access to the stage, i know it would be hard to enforce and 'unfair' but at the same time it wasn't fair to us having to fight our way to spot to enjoy the show. For members of the Choir that are considering an upgrade or buying the package, it was a great experience, but purchase the 'regular seats', that way you have good seats without to many issues.

Has this issue been addressed by anyone in the EC camp at all?

I have VIP tickets for Mpls tomorrow. I am very nervous that this is not going to be a good experience. I thought that the amount of money I spent would guarantee a good spot and not having to fight to get a view.Hope EC camp replies.

The Mohegan Sun shows seem to have a pit up front but the rest of the floor are seats... Guess it depends on the venue

So glad I'm not the only one who feels they got the short end of the stick on the "VIP seats." When I spent my money, I thought I was paying for awesome RESERVED seats or spots in the pit area. What I paid for was a two song concert (which

Worse spots than us. I am a huge Eric fan (seen him 7 times now) but unless they get this fixed I strongly encourage people to skip the VIP experience if you want pit seats to secure a good spot or buy regular seats and then upgrade your

Package. And c'mon if you pay $240 and don't even get to meet him, he could at least sign the poster! Great show as always, my favorite artist. But just feel like those that are running his show either don't care or are unorganized.

Absolutely NOTHING VIP about this experience! I was one of your biggest fans until Saturday night! No more of your concerts for me or merchandise! I can't believe you allow your biggest supporters to be ripped off so bad! What a shame!

Last tour the posters were autographed and it was $50 cheaper. STL was a bit different being that the whole floor was GA. If you had vip pit at a show with floor seat then you are just at the back of the pit not the whole floor.

jubnem_cc

I understand, from what I've read, that those who attend the 2song acoustic show have to then leave the area and get in line for the GA Pit, leaving the VIP ticket holders at the back of the GA floor. The floor in Charleston, is HUGE. What happened to the promise of seating in the first 15 rows of the pit? If there are no actual rows of seats, will there be a roped off area for VIP ticket holders? Hoping to get what we paid for, can anyone from EC's HQ respond please?

In STL, there were NO seats on the floor, it was all pit. We had to stand all the way back in front of the sound booth. We tried to cram in closer but you couldn't see anything and people were very rude, lots of pushing and shoving

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 7:49am

There is no roped off section for VIP. It's to each their own. We complained to the girl running the VIP and she just said "well you did get a 2 song acoustic show" but we would also have like to have a decent spot for the concert too

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 7:51am

We actually were standing by a lady who won a meet n greet from the fan club but had to miss the acoustic show in order to do the m&g. That really didn't seem fair. She paid to see that performance too. We felt bad for her.

jubnem_cc
Sep 15 8:35am

Surely this could be an easy fix. I'm sorry you had to stand in the back. Is the 2 song acoustic portion in a separate location, or do you just have to leave the pit area after that part to go get in another line?

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 9:45am

Our VIP was in the bar they have at Scott trade on the floor where the special boxes are. We were given no direction on where to go therefore it took even longer to get down to the pit. They just need a designated area in the pit for VIP

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 9:49am

And it's not so much there was a line to get down there, it was since Dwight had already started playing the pit was filled up. I would have much rather had a seat getting in there so late.

usmarine4life77

why is it so hard to get a decent ticket to the Oct 18th show for Philly @ Wells Fargo Center? All the good seats are on Stubhub for 3x the value. Any tricks to get better seats than nosebleeds? Thanks.

If you mean insider pit, director of Scott trade said that they had people handing bands out for those to random people in the nosebleed section. Also saw a girl that had one that was given to them when they picked up their tix @ willcall

Has any of the shows had the Choir Loft yet? If so, has anyone sat there or seen it and have an opinion about what they are like?

we bought last minute tickets to st.louis and were right side behind the stage and I loved it I don't know if these are loft seats but eric and the band worked the whole stage and there was a screen up so u could see the front side stage

Thanks John! I saw your pics and they look awesome! I think ours will be just a little farther to the left behind the stage. They are front row in the "Choir Loft" so I am hopeful!

Would you say every seat even behind him have good seats

Wondering if I should skip the VIP experience in order to assure a good pit spot. I heard terrible reviews from VIP members from the previous 3 concerts. I as well don't want to be screwed in the back of the pit at Minny. I assumed the two inside pits were for VIP. I guess they are randomized throughout the venue. What do you guys think?

We are in Omaha and we are skipping the two song set to get next to the stage. We are not to happy about it but we want 2 hours of Eric not 2 songs then crappy seat for the night.

Sep 14 8:27pm

The acoustic was awesome BUT having to stand at the back of the pit for the whole show sucked. I feel for the money there should be a designated spot for VIP in the put, it's not fair. Thankfully I'm going to KC in Dec too and have just pit

if you have the money for two shows, then do it, the acoustic set was an awesome experience but overall, it wasn't as fun as we thought it would be, we are both thankful that we have floor seats for the show in Memphis

Skip it. Just buy GA seat and be first in line. VIP means nothing once you get to the actual concert.

Does anyone know at what time does the Box Office at the Target Center in Minneapolis open to pick up pre-ordered tickets for the show on the 16th? Please and thank you!

If it says Still Processing, you still have a chance! It will either say "Accepted" or 'Not Accepted". You will get an email either way. Good luck!

Anyone write down the setlist?

kseabaugh76

Just a warning to VIP pit ticket holders. There is NO special area for you on the floor. The acoustic performance was amazing...BUT getting in that pit so late (about halfway thru Dwight) meant we couldn't get anywhere near the stage. In order to get any kind if a view we stood back by the sound booth. Don't get me wrong...AMAZING performance, just had a crappy view. I think as much as we pay for the VIP there should be some kind of area for those ticket holders. We are at a disadvantage to get a good spot in the pit in order to see the acoustic performance. Also for those wondering about the insider pit, we spoke to the manger of the venue who said they give those to random people up in the nosebleed section. But we also spoke to a VIP person that had a special arm band at check in for that section too. I'm assuming random vip tickets get chosen for that. Concert was great! Can't wait to see him again in Kansas City and hoping for a much closer spot in the pit next time!

Did you miss most of the opening acts since you did the 2 song VIP? I read that some people did not make it to the show until halfway through Dwight. Did Eric come out right after Dwight? Having PIT tickets would you skip the 2 Song VIP?

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 8:35am

We got down there about halfway thru Dwight. I don't think I would have skipped the acoustic, I feel we paid for it & it was amazing even if it was only a few min. I'm going to KC in Dec so I do have a chance to get closer for that show

bvaughn_cc
Sep 15 8:33am

And sacrifice the VIP 2 song for better spots in the PIT? I am really bumed that I am reading all this and people that have VIP PIT missed opening acts and did not get a good spot for the main show!!

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 8:44am

I just feel they should have a designated area for the VIP ticket holders so they get a decent spot when they get down there. We did not have an option to buy seats with VIP otherwise we would have done that

bvaughn_cc
Sep 15 9:17am

We are going to the Louisville, KY Show on the 25th. I think that the GA pit is seperate from the floor seats at this venue. I guess that is all I can hope for that the GA PIT is seperate and the entire floor is not GA.

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 9:52am

Ya I'm going to Kansas City in Dec & it appears that the pit is much smaller there so I'm assuming there are seats. We aren't doing VIP for that one so we can get there early and hopefully get a good spot. Entire floor was pit in STL

kjhelbing787
Sep 15 11:42am

@kseabaugh76, did you happen to go to his show with George Strait in Kansas City last January? I did, they had seats assigned there- with the VIP package, but cost was 500.I would rather pay the 500 and have guaranteed seat. How about you?

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 11:50am

No I wanted to go to that show so bad though! Yes paying VIP with actual seats would be way better for sure!

Have you talked much with CID Entertainment? They are very responsive every time I have talked with them. I think we all should let them know what we want, I think they can make it happen.

Sep 15 12:01pm

I haven't yet but my entire group was going to email them. We spoke to the director if Scott Trade too. He came over to talk to a couple that had a print out of SEATS they paid for in the pit area. He proceeded to tell us he had nothing but

kseabaugh76
Sep 15 12:19pm

Spot to stand in. It also kinda sucked to midge opening acts but I get that part really can't be helped I suppose. Loved the acoustic performance but would have also loved a great spot in the pit as well

kjhelbing787
Sep 15 12:18pm

I think fan feedback is very important to the people at CID, as much as I have talked to them, I believe they truly care. Tell them what your experience was like, maybe they can make it right.

Sep 15 2:42pm

Oh that's terrible. If you want pics give me your email and I will be happy to send you some of mine. I may have been in the back of the pit but I do have a heck of a zoom lens on my camera lol

kjhelbing787
Sep 15 2:47pm

That's so awesome of you to offer!! kjhelbing787@gmail.com When I finally got a chance to look at all my pictures I realized my memory card was gone, I AM CRUSHED over it. During the last few minutes of the concert is when it happened.

kjhelbing787
Sep 15 2:50pm

My phone had 5 pics and one 5 sec. video of the last song he played, which were saved to the device. I put a new memory card in right before the show and set the camera to save to the card.
