The VIP details this time around havent been fully disclosed. Last tour they had a meet and greet tour with picture included, now THAT was rare. They generally do M&G outside of Japan, but autograph sessions are super rare

VIP is available.  The package includes: Ticket to the show, early entry and an exclusive gift.

When you go to the Select Tickets section there are options for VIP, General Admission and Early Bird (which I am assuming is GA but a limited amount at this price).

Thank you for the code, btw.

I can't even get to purchase tickets yet Cry
It's just saying it'll be available May 8.

We'll be there, everytime we hang out we are far too many people so having a meetup specifically will be impossible due to no area that allows so many people at once lol. Meet us in line for the show, get talking, then go with a group to eat/drink to wherever you decide to go Happy

So like what is the likelihood of a meet and greet actually happening? I'm still on the fence if I should do VIP or not and a meet and greet would be one of the few reasons I would be able to convince myself to spend the extra money on it (this is mostly due to budgeting restraints).

In america that is

When a band/artist gets popular it gets very rare to do meet and greet. Here in Japan, once they get too popular, its too hard to do any autograph sessions etc.

I follow other artists from debut and the progression tends to be:
Spoiler:

Meet and greet type events:
1. Autograph events/chance for chat.
2. Hand shake events/chance for a chat.
3. Hi 5 events, little chance of talking, get a word in only.
4. Hand out of photo/postcard etc. 
<----- Scandal around +/- here.
5. Lottery chance for meet and greet. <-- Scandal did this for CDs at the prefecture tour for some venues.
6. No meet and greet at all.
(The whole cheki photos taking usually is for idols, totally different marketing)

Free live:
1. Just turn up at record store/outdoor venue etc. small crowd. No need to purchase CD etc. Crowd usually 50 or so people.
2. Purchase CD, get randomly allocated attendance ticket. 250 or so?
3. Purchase CD, randomly allocated attendance ticket for special area, limited. 100 or so. (outside special area free to watch but much further away)
4. No need for purchase large outdoor venue, just need to get there first and wait possibly half a day or so.
<----- Scandal around +/- here.
5. Purchase CD/fan club, Actual free event at a venue.

Autographs:
1. Purchase CD and get it personally signed, may even allow for you to specify name/message.
2. Purchase CD and get it handed out to you by the artist.
3. Purchase CD and its given out/posted by record store.
4. Purchase CD and get a lottery chance of getting autograph or not.  <-- Scandal is here with the stickers in their standard regular edition CDs.
5. But then occasionally when the autographs get too rare highly demanded an artist might with a release sign 100s of posters for a live or autograph guaranteed with pre-order. Most probably to cool of auction prices etc.
6. No longer doing autographs :p

Scandal has gotten to the point where the last couple of release events were for handing out of postcards only. The last hi five event (for everyone, not a lottery) I recall was at Kawasaki for the release of Yellow because Mami was sick and so the free live event became a talk show and hi 5 event for everyone, originally it was a lottery for a few fans to meet and greet them. Last Scandal free live was at Zepp Tokyo.

For autographs of course there are exceptions, like when Rina did a girls event at Feedback! shop. Of course there are other promotions etc.

For things like TV recording, you are generally there just to watch as audience, you can not bring items to sign and there will not be a meet and greet. (Exception I did go to one recording, only because there was about 20 of us, they gave us a minute or so asked us a few questions etc.)

Hi, I went to the LA & Anaheim shows in 2015 and VIP consisted of:
-Early entry to the venue
-One photo with the band, where you handed your camera/cell phone to one of the staff who took it.
-One pre-autographed poster, received at the end of the show.

He was wondering about what happens in the US, though.


Noodles did answer Devon4's question correctly: they will only sign stuff of your choice in the US if at an anime convention.

I think he might have already known what perks were included last time since he was asking if it will happen this time.

The answer is, quite simply, that we currently have no idea. There has been no mention so far that M&G is included, since the two shows whose VIP tickets have gone on sale so far (SF and Anaheim) technically mention that "early entry and an exclusive gift" are currently the only VIP perks.

We can speculate all we want on if M&G will possibly be added, but we honestly can only wait and see at this point.

Get the vip if you want early entry, and let everything else work itself out. Won’t do anyone any good to keep speculating about meet and greet/ handshake autograph and etc. I’m sure as information is announced it will be relayed here.

Did they allow "normal" cameras at the US shows last time around? I would love to be able to bring my mirrorless DSLR (it's small for a DSLR, but obviously bigger than a cell phone), especially if they do have a M&G.

I remember seeing a lot of great photos from that tour so I assumed they did, as has become standard at most shows in the US. But since they're a Japanese band, I want to make sure. I'm pretty sure it's up to the band at most US venues whether to allow cameras.

You're correct that at most US venues it's usually up to the band to allow cameras, and normal cameras were in fact allowed at the LA and Anaheim shows on their world tour (Mexico as well). Not at the Chicago one, though, since that was part of an anime convention and there's almost always a no-picture policy.

I would be leery about bringing a mirrorless camera, though, as the lenses are detachable. Most if not all venues here like to state that "any camera with a detachable lens" is considered to be a "pro" camera and therefore do not allow cameras like that to be brought in unless you have a photo pass. To be sure, you should try contacting the venue ahead of time to ask them about their policy on mirrorless cameras.

As someone who frequently attends anime con concerts I will add that it’s not /always/ no pictures at every con as the company who brings the artists is in charge of that. Most of those companies don’t allow photos which is why it seems like it’s always true.

In the earlier posts there was code that was needed for early ticket purchase. Was that venue specific? I don’t want to be scrabbling looking for a code tomorrow for the Dallas concert.
