I am selling one ticket to the "Weird Al" Yankovic concert tomorrow, June 6th, at Foxwoods Resort Casino in CT. Show time is at 4:00pm.
I'm only charging $68, which is the actual price I paid for the ticket and online service fee.
Anyone interested in buying 1 ticket to the 4pm show?

Hello, everyone. I'll be attending the 8 PM show. If anyone is interested in an impromptu meet up I'd be down to say hello and mingle. Gotta share in the pre-show hype.

My point was that nobody is going to pay that price if meeting Al was not part of the deal. The money your paying is for the show in the first five rows and a meet with Al. I don't think if you were going to two meets in one day that you would care that much about missing one pre-show party. They will probably be the exact same sure, I was just saying that if I had bought tickets to two shows that day, I would go to both shows and just not attend the second pre-party. I'm willing to bet in this case that the venue will become aware people were planning on going to both and will just give you your second shirt and package after the second show or whatever. Anyways, as judgmental as that may be or seem, it's only my opinion. No way I would let one pre-show party be a reason to miss a Weird Al concert that would be going on at the same time. Like I said, I bet the venue would make it right. If not, get your money back or start a RIOT!! Joking obviously, but for that price I would.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

As far as I know, the folks on this forum who had tickets to both shows only had VIP for the second show. If they skip the pre-show party, as you suggested, they wouldn't attend any pre-show party at all.
I did not buy the Czar VIP package, but if I did, I would want to get everything I paid for, including the pre-show party.

This exactly. I think Yankomaniac is confused and believes that people have VIP for both shows, which isn't the case.

I just got my confirmation email, check in for the 8PM VIP is at 5PM, sorry for those of you in the 4PM show, sounds like that will be a problem.

I just got my email too. I guess I'll go enjoy as much of the concert I can for the 4PM show and then go to the pre-party around 6. That's not too bad. I wish I knew exactly what the pre-party consisted of so I could plan accordingly. If it's just standing around talking after getting the merchandise, I can go a little later.

For anyone interested, here is what the email said:

I kinda feel the same way about the party, I'm all about free food, not so much about chit chat with strangers (no offense to anyone here), but I paid to be there, so I'm going.
