Clockwork Angels VIP package merchandise finally shipping

Mon, Oct 29, 2012@6:21PM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 10/29@6:59PM: Reader thedigitalman also received his VIP package merchandise today and sent along these photos.

VIP ticket packages for the North American leg of Rush's current Clockwork Angels tour were sold through VIP Nation rather than Live Nation as they were on the Time Machine tour. The ticket packages once again cost in the $300 range and included a variety of Rush tour merchandise and a VIP ticket guaranteed to be in the first 15 rows. The big difference this go-around was that ticketbuyers were not made aware of the exact location of their seat until the day of the show, with the best seats going to those who bought their tickets first. Regarding the merchandise portion of the packages, they initially promised that package buyers would receive the swag before the date of the show, but just like on the Time Machine tour there were unexpected delays in putting the packages together. The delays were so bad this time that I've only now finally started receiving reports of fans receiving their merchandise - well over half way into the tour. Reader Andy had bought a VIP ticket package for opening night in Manchester and received his package merchandise just today. So it's anticipated that VIP Nation is shipping out the packages for each show in chronological order. Andy also sent along this photo of the contents of the package which include a black Clockwork Angels tour shirt (design on front only), a collectible Clockwork Angels tour poster (numbered, limited), a tour program, a Rush explosion tote bag, and a set of official guitar picks. Also included is a commemorative tour laminate that was given out to fans when they picked up their tickets.
