Hello everyone, just joined today.

I Happened to notice yesterday that Vai is coming to do a show in the next town over in October, my wife and I are planning on going, and I'm seriously thinking about doing the Evo experience. I know every venue is probably different, but where do you go after its over? Do you get to go out to the floor or to your seats? Or do you need to go back and wait in line? The place it will be at is general admission, not assigned seating, so I'd like to get there plenty early to get close to the stage. My wife doesn't want to do the Evo experience so we would have to figure out where to meet up also and it would probably be hard for her to get to the stage after the doors open.

Do people bring guitars to have signed? I was thinking about bringing my Universe to have it signed, but I don't really want to go put it in the car after having it signed before the show in plain view and everyone around knowing there is a guitar sitting there in the car.

Usually, after the EVO Q&A, you get to attend the soundcheck, which means you'll be in before doors open to the general public. In some specific cases this may be different due to venue policy or something.

As for bringing your guitar to sign, check with the venue. I generally advice against it, and just bring the back cover or something. Not ever venue allows you to bring something that big into the hall, or arrange for a place to safely store it (or even exit and enter again to put it back in your car). If you do bring it, you do so at your own risk.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, it's probably better not to bring it, it isn't like I can replace a UV7PWH either. I assume it is ok to bring your camera? Are pictures allowed during soundcheck? How about during the show?

I was wondering about the picture thing too....can you take pics during the q+a, sound check etc. ? also, I was told when I bought 2 evo tickets today that I did NOT have to buy separate tickets for the show, that a ticket for the vip seating area on the floor is included. we want to do the evo thing then stand infront of the stage in the general admission area. I am confused now about whether or not I need to buy 2 more tickets for the show. you would think since I paid over $600 already, it would get us into the show.

Thanks for your help Jeroen!

I kind of have the same doubt as YtsEjaM-

I already have my tickets (evo&concert), my gf gave me the evo ticket as gift, she gave my name, so I think I just need to present an ID to receive my evo ticket the day of the concert right?

Sorry for bothering you with this, I know this is not your work :oops:

I recently brought my Jem to the EVO experience and there was no problem. But I live fairly close to the venue so I knew I had enough time to bring the guitar back home and return in time for the show. I wouldn't leave it in a car if I were you.

Can anyone shed some light on the camera policy? I'd like to bring my camera, but it is a DSLR so its not like I can just stick it in my pocket if they aren't allowed.

most places you will require a photo pass to use such a camera ..so unless you have one
I wouldn't bother .
I know this as I have had photo passes for many years now and seen countless people
removed from shows of cameras took off them until after the show.
