Hey all,
Received my packages yesterday and I'm not completely happy. The only thing is the tote bag. It's just a fancy grocery bag. I was in the 4th row in front of Geddy so that was ok. Next time I'm going to spend the money on a meet and greet. I hope there will be a next time.

OK Edmontoners and travelers, a couple of us are going to meet at the Flow Lounge and Grill link at around 5 for a pre show meet up if anyone would like to join us. It is walking distance to the venue. I hope to meet you there! Barb

Ugh...hearing these comments about VIP Nation leaves me worried-the way my luck is going these days...I'll find out that I'm in row 15 behind the tallest man in the world. On the other hand...Rush is touring-the guys are healthy, the new album is incredible and either setlist is going to have a live song from PW (my all time favorite album). So...everything is awesome. I can't wait to hear The Wreckers live.

E-mailed tix@musictoday about the presale tickets. They said "Our presale tickets ship on the same day that we receive them from the box office which is approximately 2 weeks prior to the event. Once tickets ship you will receive an email confirmation of your shipment."

Is there any Meet and Greet info?

No tickets as yet...I received my Seattle tickets in just a few days. But no need to worry just yet I don't think, many people in different FB groups have also been saying they haven't received their tickets for other venues either...

This is the response I received from VIP Nation.

VIP Nation and Live Nation Platinum are entirely different companies with different ticketing holds, offers, programs, amenities, employees, buildings, etc. We have nothing to do with them and vice versa. Your seats will not be based around their customers, but will be based around the other VIP Nation customers who purchased prior to you.

Thank you,


What a bunch of crap, for lack of better word, don't you all think? Last VIPs I buy.

This is the message I sent to VIP Nation tonight.
I purchased 2 Rush VIP packages (Order ID:0000749082) for the Edmonton show not knowing seat locations. Now I see "Official Platinum Seats" available for the floor 3rd row seats 39-40 and the 4th row seats 7-8. My question is, since I made my order early to get the best seat available (first 15 rows) will I have better seats or will the Platinum seats be better because of the extra $100 charge? Logically my tickets should be better because I ordered them almost a week ago.
VIP Nation FAQ
14. When is my order filled? How are tickets assigned?
Tickets are allocated according to the time and day you placed your order. It doesn't matter if you're first or last in line on the day of the show...your ticket locations are already pre-determined based on when you placed your order.
I thank you in advance for your prompt response.

I'll let you all know if I get an answer.

#6 I don't have a similar story, but as I said I also bought VIP's for Toronto and Houston and will also be quite choked if I am not within the first 5 rows. For both I purchased them within the first minute, so we'll see. I tried yesterday to help a friend, I went on for the Toronto general sales, he just wanted to be on the floor somewhere. We both tried for over an hour and no floor seats were available. There were of course Platinum's, I saw as close as row 3, they all sold out, and a few minutes later more became available. What a scam, it seems they hold seats and release them as Platinum's when they see the popularity. Not fair in my opinion. Shelling out the big bucks (again) on Platinum's for Seattle tomorrow (as nothing better than 20th row for presales), wish me luck...
