I asked Abstract Logix and they say that they are selling just the regular version of the CD.
This should mean that there is no way of getting an aftershow pass if you order from them shouldn't it?
They're advertising and selling the regular CDs but saying there's a chance of getting an aftershow pass in them :?

Dear Steve Vai fan –



You are receiving this email because you recently ordered Steve’s new Sound Theories CD and t-shirt bundle from http://vai.seenon.com. Some of you have called or emailed because you have received only the t-shirt without the CD.



Please don’t be concerned! Your CD is on its way.




We received the t-shirts at our warehouse last week, before the new Sound Theories CD was ready to ship. Once we received the CDs at our warehouse, there was a delay in getting them shipped out to customers due to a last-minute change of the CD artwork, and the process of randomly inserting 2,500 passes into the CD cases. Unfortunately, some of the t-shirt orders started shipping out to customers before the CDs were ready to go with them. Please rest assured we are aware of the problem and we are expediting the CD to every customer whose t-shirt was shipped without the CD. All of those discs will be delivered by Monday at the latest.



The good news is that in order to get these CDs shipped out the door as quickly as possible, we’re not replacing the original artwork – your CD shipment will include both the original artwork and the new approved booklet, which makes your CD edition of Sound Theories a special collector’s item!



Thanks again for your patience and for your continued support.



All the best,

Customer Service

Yeah, I just got the same thing. Feeling better about it all now, but I'm sorry for you folks that won't get the chance for passes in time for the shows you are attending.

i think i know what the REAL problem was...
they randomly packed shirt sizes instead of after show passes, so they're having to redo the whole thing.

Well, I looked it up and it says "In process". What does that mean??! I was never even charged to begin with. Can you guys tell me when you were charged for the CDs???

Whatever happened, this is the messiest mess I've ever witnessed!

Got the same email...so I know I'll get the CD someday..and as someone said, I just have to sit on the dream to get a chance to win an aftershow pass.

To get a crappy extra booklet as a gift is not that great of an idea to cover this mess.

Lesson learned, I'll never order again at this place.

I'll report on the show tomorrow and let you know what happened (maybe we, French Parisian Screwed Fans, will burn the place as a welcome..who knows!)

The sound and show better be top notch..... :evil:

I bought the regular CD at store and love it, but I also want to get the limited edition CD for my collection !!
I don't really care about winning the aftershow pass since I can't go to any of the upcoming show.... and I can wait a few days for delivery.
Do I still have to pay high $$ for FedEx shipping ??? Why don't they have a standard shipping option ?? Too bad....

Well it's supposed to arrive by courier-hence the expense-but I have a feeling it'll still rely on a Royal Mail postie to stick it through our letter boxes!

Wonder if they cleared that with the Vai camp.
There was a reason why they had it re-printed...
It was not good enough to be distributed.
And they're still distributing them.
