Okay! Signed by the ARTIST! So I'll still get one to have it signed by the guys :) Might be a rip-off, but it's gig specific and one of the best ways to remember the show/meeting the guys. That and a shirt :)

Maybe a couple magnets...

Austin - did they come in a pre-packaged combo? Or was it like a "deal" type thing, like "Get a shirt, poster and magnet for $50" promo type thing?

Nope, sorry Kelly, each was individual. That would be the perfect fan pack though. Then again, they'd have to charge maybe $5 less to offset the redundancy lof paying the same price as you would normally.

Awesome, Halokiti! :)

Yep, $50 is what I had planned to spend so it's perfect!

Did you guys buy before the show? I wonder how early they'll let us in? I wonder if I'll even be able to get one for the late show? Surely there'll be 300 more for the second show.....???

Laura if you want to send me the money before the show I'll pick up whatever souvenirs you want before the early show :) It says on the Fox website that seating begins 60 minutes before the show, I'm not ENTIRELY sure if that's the earliest we'll be allowed in the venue or not...but BadAtom and I are planning on getting there right around 7 pm (60 minutes before the early show).

That goes for anyone else too - anyone who wants Detroit merch let me know :)

Atom- you're going to bring game discs for them, right? :D
Why don't you have them sign one of yours?

I was going to bring my season 2 box since, after you slide J & B off, it's a nice clear field for them to sign...you could do that- free. :wink:

Kelly- I'll let you know if I want to go that route.....I really want to see things for myself and pick out myself. (I'm kind anal... :oops: ) What if I don't like the poster? Thanks for the offer- if I do take you up on it, I can meet you somewhere before you head downtown. :thanks:

The peeps from the other late show.....did they get equal amounts of merchandise to buy, I wonder?

They only had 300 total posters in Philly for 2 shows. NY had 300 of one poster, then 350 of the other for 2 shows. Granted, Radio City is like 6,500 seating.

I did see/hear that a certain size, of a certain shirt was sold out at Philly at the start of the second show.

Hmmmm, our venue seats 5,120-something and the first show is sold out and I'd bet the 11 pm is close.

I'm going to have to do some sleuthing.....

:thanks: Cuse!

Will probably be 300-350 posters for Detroit, since both shows are on the same day (only one poster). It didn't seem like the posters were selling a lot, but you never know. The poster could be so awesome that everyone wants one. Most people aren't big enough fans to spend $20-$30, though.

If you wear an odd sized shirt, I'd definitely try to get those early.

Laura, I actually did bring the CDs with the games on them, but I wouldn't have the guys sign them - I'd give 'em to them! I'm really not big on the whole autograph thing, although I was thinking about printing out a large size version of the game posters I made and have them sign those. Everyone's determined to have them sign something for me! :)

Well I figure - who knows when we will have this chance again! Might as well get an autograph and picture :)

No, no....I knew you were giving them copies of your game- but that since you came up with it, one of your own copies might also be a cool thing for you to have signed as a keepsake. :)

I get the "not big on autographs" thing. I'm not planning on having them sign anything. It would be enough just to meet them. That would mean more to me than an autograph. Though I might try to get a picture in.
