I still haven't bought my train ticket yet from San Diego to LA and if the signing is going to be on any day other than august 1st i have to change hotels around since i wasn't planning on leaving San Diego until the 31st and trying to find a good cheap hotel NOW is going to be nearly impossible. I'm sorry I dont mean to sound so pissed i'm just irritated that we were told a week before the live about the dates when its pretty much impossible to make changes to travel plans.


-------------------

From what Ai told me, she said that and I quote, "Possibly not on August 1st." So, that means it could either be on the 30th or 31st. If you're able to, and are in a hurry to book a hotel, I'd recommend to find something for those two days. That is, if you're able to. Unfortunately, I don't know when Ai will give me the rest of the information. You pretty much know everything I do at this point. Good luck in trying to find something.

Jazmin,

I wasn't directing my comment to either you or Tracy, as I know you both have worked hard for this tour. In addition, I know full-well that hundreds of people are traveling from all over to see the San Francisco show. Honestly, I really hate having to post information that tells people, "I'm sorry you can't meet HYDE/VAMPS even though it's your life's goal to do so." It really, really, really sucks having to do that, especially since I know what this means to people - to us.

When I told the guest user that we should be grateful that VAMPS have chosen to come to the U.S. in the first place, I did so because it's true. It's understandable that people are going to be angry and there is nothing that I can do to prevent that. Rather, I am trying to remind people that we are ALL lucky to have them come to the U.S., and even more fortunate if we're able to even go to a concert. Many people are not even able to do that. So, in some sense, these "autograph sessions" should just be considered an added bonus and an incentive for those who've not yet purchased tickets, to do so. As you may already know, west coast tickets aren't selling, so hopefully this autograph session will "motivate" people to purchase the tickets. I really appreciate your concerns and I am not without understanding of yours' (and many others') situation. I hope you'll be able to work something out so that you are in fact able to attend the session.

- Heather

Yeah, this sucks big time. But I've gotten over the fact that I won't be able to attend. I just hope LA works out better for me and everyone else. Because I AM eternally grateful that I will get to see VAMPS perform.....eternally poor, too, after this tour......lol

I guess the irony of the situation is that those of us who have been busting our asses to help promote VAMPS won't be able to attend but the "unmotivated" fan will. That is what stings big time. And I realize that they have schedules, plans are tough to make, etc. Just like everyone else who is emotionally wounded. But we just need to vent. And you know that and no one is blaming anyone because that is just the way things worked out.

Ok...so maybe I'm not over it as much as I thought... :) .....just pass the bottle of iodine please.

Now, I am over it.....perspective here....I am sure there are people who are reading this forum who cannot attend even one show while I am selling my soul to the credit card company to attend 4. They are thinking that they would be happy to attend even one concert, let alone a meet and greet. I am disappointed, yes. But I am also blessed and thankful that I get to see VAMPS at all.

I said that only because that is what was stated...that's why I put it in quotes. The idea of the meet and greet was to motivate people to purchase tickets for the slow selling shows. I was not trying to offend anyone....sorry if I did.

While I'm at it.....I also did not mean to sound as if some people deserved more than others because of the promotion that they have done. I hope it didn't come across that way. We ALL get what we deserve and that is to see VAMPS live.

RE: UPDATE: S.F. Autograph session
The ONLY reason I'm bitching *pardon the language* is because they wait until ONE WEEK and TWO days before announcing this. All the others are the DAY OF the concert so what makes San Francisco so special? I mean I'm happy to get to see Kazu in concert but damn...I knew there was a reason I wasn't getting excited over the meetgreet/autograph session. Good planning. You cannot tell me they knew about these before they were announced. When I mean THEY I mean the "promoters" I CANNOT just drop down an extra $250 just to change my NON REFUNDABLE flight ticket. Sorry some of us have jobs and/or don't have the money. Thanks for telling us so close to the date.

Sorry I'm just angry and not just the autograph session. Normal crap has went on in my life today and this just added fuel to the fire.
I'm not mad at VAMPS it is not their doing.

You've already read my frustrations....lol

I think it is just we are all so disappointed. And we need to vent.

The promoters may not have thought about all of this before hand. We all bought our tickets within the first 15 minutes that they went on sale. So the hard-core group was covered. Managment/promoters needed to reel in more fish. So they thought up the meet and greets. They were not announced until much later on....and then it keeps coming in pieces.We still don't know about the LA M & G.

So it really is short notice for them to get all of the paperwork and advertising done for these considering when all of this started. Our big gripe is when it is happening because we have to travel and cannot afford to change plans. But if that is truly when the store/band could connect then we are stuck with it.

Well I think it would make sense to have it the day of the concert because then VAMPS would have time to rest some before having to deal with the masses. But...what can we do!? I don't think it is management that has much to do with the autograph sessions dates. But I'm not sure.
