Vaimai - From my understanding, the gold tickets bought through ticketek just get you better seating then the cheaper ones - and congratulations on actually having the tickets in your hand, I'm currently pulling my hair out over these satch platinum tickets.

It turns out i still havent been charged for my tickets - but apparently they tried taking payment for the tickets on saturday, but the card was declined - and the bank shows absolutely no history of anyone trying to charge to the card, so now i have to wait until tuesday morning before i can fix that up with them (Oh and also, noone from fanfire bothered to call and inform me of this credit card mishap). Furthermore, the tickets are still in my Mums name - even though i rang up back in september and had them changed over.

So yeah - In the end it will have been close to $1000 spend for 3 tickets, a whole bucketload of trouble, heaps of stress induced headaches and what looks to be crap seats....but still....I think it's gonna be worthit :P

See yas there....Hopefully :?

So Do I :D


My FanFire order also says the tickets were shipped on the 16th....
Weird, I thought we picked them up on the night.

Probably just the shirt etc and Credit Card billing. Starting to look a bit better now.

cheers,

DamoESP - Did they actually give you the tracking number?, mine just says the shipping date was the 16th November - which was friday australian time...and didnt really tell me any other details other then who it was sent through, and a generic tracking number that isnt really a tracking number

Any idea on how long it'll take to get from the US to Aus?

I posted exactly what they gave me. No tracking number or anything.

I have had stuff psoted from the US before..normally takes like 6 weeks..but that is normal post.

I would say when orders for this kinda stuff is shipped...only a week MAX..when I joined the Megadeth Fan Club..it only took a few days for my package to arrive once it was shipped..and that had a t-shirt and shit with it.

So yeah..hang tight till the end of this week I say.

Guys I love that everyone is keeping everyone up to date.
Now I am starting to get paranoid again.
I have actually moved from Frankston to Frankston and I hope nothing gets lost in the mail. :(
I was a little disappointed (if not greedy :wink: ) to find out I couldn't enter the Vai aftershow. I would've jumped on a Vai package before Satriani or Petrucci, it was only when we found out there wouldn't be one offered that we ran to Satriani.com.
Anyway I am pleasently suprised to find out it includes aftershow. :D
Does this mean all three acts will be together after the show?? 8)
Mikey, Mikey please tell me this is so. and make me one hell of a happy girl! :D 8)
Less than two weeks to go!!!!! :D 8)

:) coool - payment went through sometime this morning, and by the sounds of it i managed to get the name changed for the ticket pickup.

However, they said to bring the credit card along...strange, but anyways, Yaaay, now i just hope the shirts get here in time.

also, it is pretty awesome how everyone is giving updates on whats goin on, i also find it pretty ironic how this thread (mostly being about platinum packages) is the biggest thread available on any of the performers forums, and yet vai isnt actually doing a platinum package.

anyways, peace out
