FANS FANS FANS!!!!!!!!!!!
So we are in the final stages of developing our Fan Club. It’s going to be ready before the record comes out. Here’s what takes so much time. I’ve been reading your responses on twitter and I am so sorry that some of you got shut out of tickets for our US tour in July. I am truly sorry that there are scalpers at the waiting for these shows. But we can’t stop them, because we can’t find them before they get the tickets, it’s a flawed system but avoiding Ticketmaster is NOT the right solution… just read PJ20 the book and you’ll see what happens when you try to do a big tour by yourself. Fake tickets, out of the way venues, unsafe set ups. We can’t put our fans at risk. Ticketmaster isn’t in favor of scalpers either, they don’t make any extra money on them, in fact they try to stop them.
The reason we can’t just put it up immediately is we have to talk to the ticket vendors and work out a percentage of the tickets that we can hold for our fans, we’re trying to hold as many as we can, but we can only do so much at our level. But know that we have you’re concerns in mind and we are doing the very best we can to bring you tickets at the best price and at the best convenience for you all.
We’re having the whole website overhauled now for a brand new look and that’s when we’ll have the fan club go up. So please, please sit tight, and remember we’re doing a small tour only in the beginning, we’ll be doing bigger venues and more dates all over the world, so if you happened to miss out, you will get another chance to see us, with plenty of tickets to go around.
And as always, we’re not some huge rock and roll band who has forgotten about the very people who put us where we are, and that’s you… the fans. So know that as you are upset, I’m sitting up at night freaking out at everyone trying to find the very best way to make the fan club work with everything and most importantly that you all get tickets at a fair price, without you having to jump through hoops to get them.
Thank you all for hanging in there!
