STAR VIP PACKAGE £140.25 (£127.50)
Transaction fee applicable *
On sale on Friday, 21 Oct 2016 at 10:00 AM
Ticket to the show
A unique opportunity to attend the sound check
You and Melanie C have your photo taken together
Collectible laminate + lanyard
VIP check in desk with host

Whew... Way to bleed the fans dry! Would love to meet Melanie but seriously, £140 to attend the sound check, get a photo with Mel and a collectible laminate? A bit stiff...
Oh well regular tickets for the London gig seem to be around £28.60 so that's good! What's the level to be at do people think? I would love a seat but it's unreserved :(

I hear you 100% - However, as VIP ticketing goes it's a very reasonable price to pay. Most VIP packages usually cost between £200-£600 and include dross such as 'special access to venue', 'on site staff', '10% merchandise coupon', 'on site refeshements' (usually some stale peanuts and a glass of flat Bucksfizz) and usually a poxy laminate of if they want to be posh ' commemorative pass'. If VIP packages do contain a meet and greet it's usually just a cattle hurdling excerise around the artist and rarely includes a photo opportunity.

As said, I hear you, it's still a lot of dosh but I think cross compared to similar ticket types it's very reasonably priced :)

Not always in my experience. I've noticed in the small print of many ticket packages photo opportunities are offered on a 'best endeavours' basis.

That's actually quite cheap to be there for a sound check and to meet her like that. I've seen meet & greets go for like $10,000 before.

140 pounds is nothing to attend the soundcheck and take a pic with Mel and the best seats. I bought VIP Beyhive tickets for Beyonce's concert (my bf is fan), 900 usd each, and all we got was a bag with a towel and cheap sunglasses, and good seats of course. So Mel's VIP tickets are really good!!

I hope she'll tell more dates soon as a tour of 5 concerts seems a little short.

Id like to go either Glasgow (never been there before) or London (Love that city!)
I had a fantastic experience with "an evening with Melanie C,'Sportys Forty' and a few gigs with The Sea Tour so Id love to see Melanie live one more time. Shes so good

I converted £ price in $ and it's not that bad ($223) usually it's higher and no chance of going to the souncheck. Ah if only I wasin the UK

Trying to decide if I can justify an extra £100 to go to the soundcheck and meet Melanie... would be cool. But where do you end up for the actual gig? Is there a specific area? Because I much prefer standing than sitting up on a balcony level, there's never as much of an atmosphere IMO...

Love the tour ad with the dates on though - they need to make this a poster! :love:

This is what I'd like to know. Because what if we'd be going with someone who dosen't have a VIP ticket, would we still be able to stand together for the actual show?
