Sure.

After what also happened in Manila, gotta say SCANDAL staff now needs to be more thorough in choosing promoters. Thinking

I am looking forward to getting whatever the promoters decide to send as a "special gift" but I must say that I got to stand there with Scandal and get my picture made, I got to see Scandal live (something I've dreamed of) and I got to buy swag at the Scandal show, so I've already got my money's worth and more. The only disappointing thing is I don't think the show was promoted and the crowd was quite small.

If I could swing it, I would love to go to Japan and see then with 10,000 people, but the fans in Dallas were great and the show was awesome. They rocked the house as if it were full to the max and that is worthy of respect right there. Some bands get lazy if the crowd is too small, but Scandal played it like it was Budokan just for us few.

Yeah! すごいね!I love this band. .wow.

Just know that 99% of their Japanese shows are *not* in front of 10,000 people. Most of them are like the Dallas show. I've been to four of their Japanese shows, including both the first Budokan show as well as shows (after that) that were actually smaller than their NYC show on this tour. Trust me - they're used to and perfectly fine with shows in front of a couple thousand people or even less. That's their bread and butter. 10,000 people is a huge and special show for them. Probably 1/3 of all those big shows that they've ever done have been made into DVD's, so it seems like they've done more than they have. (I'm not counting summer festival shows, which by nature are mostly going to be fans of other bands anyway.)

But back to being on topic, I just got my tracking number today... for a package I got on November 5th! So yeah, obviously these promoters are more than a little disorganized.

I just received my gift in the mail today. It surprised me, because they never sent me the e-mail with the tracking number. 

@spacecadet Judging by your situation, I guess I should expect that tracking number a few weeks from now. LOL.

The email I received last Monday said I would be receiving my gifts for BOTH Anaheim and SF in the mail soon. Well, I received that package this past Saturday and it only contained my gifts for Anaheim. Sigh. Can't say I'm surprised at all about their incompetency anymore, unfortunately lol Facepalm

Does the Japan side know how poorly things were handled here? Or do they not really care? (I don't expect them to do anything about it, but I would hope they might choose to partner with different people the next time they want to do shows in the US.)

Yes, they know all about it. They know that this was the promoter's fault and left them to take care of the mess they caused, so I'm sure they'll at least definitely go with a different promoter next time.

For what it’s worth to anyone.    I was at the Dallas show and just received this email response yesterday.

I think that Scandal might make a return appearance before they get all of these gifts out.

I finally got my VIP gift last night and I laughed out loud when I opened the package.  Even though I knew what it was going to be ahead of time I couldn't believe this is what $180+ airfare and hotel got me.  For me the whole point of the VIP was the opportunity to meet the band and take a photo.  That was well worth the cost.  I didn't really care if I got a gift, although something autographed would have been nice to frame.

But what was especially funny (and timely) for me was that I had just come home from a concert in which I got to randomly meet and talk to one of my favorite guitarists (Richie Kotzen), as well as Joey Kramer (Aerosmith), for no cost what-so-ever.   Perspective is everything.

Received my VIP gift from the Dallas show last night. Never received tracking number.

I mostly did VIP to ensure a good viewing spot, but these were some of the higher priced VIP tickets for shows I attend so I wish it was all executed better, unfortunate that the promotors promised a gift as part of the ticket package, completely dropped it on all US shows, then they barely cared to try to correct it / make up for it. Definitely hope this is the last time they use this promotor.

Anyway, the shows were amazing. And it was amazing meeting many of you in line at the three shows I attended on this tour. I look forward to sharing the experience the next time they come to North America.

Great news!  I got an email today notifying me of the VIP package I received two weeks ago.  Bang up job by the promoter, huh?

lol at least you got your package.

The email I got today contained the tracking number for my SF gift (which I never received and wondered why). When I checked the tracking info, the "addressee" (AKA me) was apparently deemed "unknown" by the post office and, after two weeks of being in limbo, was returned back to the sender in Georgia yesterday. Despite my receiving the gifts for the other 3 shows with no problem, they somehow had a problem sending me this one...

I finally got a tracking number email on Tuesday. When I went to check the status, the last update in the system was from Monday showing that the package was being returned to the sender due to incomplete address.

At least I know it isn't worth putting any effort into getting it sent again. 

I may have asked this before, but do we chalk this up to incompetence or just a lack of effort?

Both. Incompetence because the promoters "forgot" to give us the gifts in the first place + they're doing something wrong to have some gifts being returned to sender; lack of effort because of the ultra-low quality of these "gifts" and how slowly they're distributing them.

Also, at least(?) I'm not alone in having a gift being returned to sender. But this really shouldn't be happening in the first place.

So they had sent me the wrong amount for San Francisco so I sent them an email, to my surprise, finally they managed to send me the gift for the missing San Francisco and final Anaheim together. Save them a bit of international postage hah. So it completed my NY/SF/Anaheim gifts. Good luck everyone Happy

Merry Xmas!

Since I did say wayback when that I would post it, here's my write-up of the tour + a handful of pictures I shot, if anyone cares lol. Super late, I know, but I wanted to wait until this VIP gift debacle was settled. Can't believe how long it took. I finally got my final shipment on December 28th. -_-

Anyway!
