Getting autographs from Al and the band

by catladyleeann » Mon Jul 11, 2016 8:39 pm

Would someone please tell me how to get autographs from Al and the band? I've read that we could wait by his bus, but I know that after the phenomenal show and the after party with the VIP group, they would have to be exhausted.

I have a space reserved on my arm for Al to sign, and will be going to get his signature tattooed immediately afterward. I am also planning to buy a few things that his band can sign.

I'll be seeing him this Friday in Biloxi, and it's my first whole concert of his that I'll see (I'm a late bloomer ^_^ ). I worked as an usher at the show in Mobile, so I couldn't hang out with the rest of the fans.

Any tips you can give me will be greatly appreciate. :accordion:
Well, this is it. This IS the last minute!

The only way to for sure meet Al and the band would be by getting VIP tickets. You can always wait by the bus, but it's never certain you'll get to meet them. I went to the June 24th show in Akron with my dad and we waited, but he left without signing anything because Suzanne and Nina were there. I think it's worth it to wait by the bus if you don't have VIP just in case he does. Hope this helps a bit. :)

VIP does NOT guarantee band access, only Al

Thank you both for responding so quickly. Believe me, if I had the funds to do the VIP Czar ticket, I would in a heartbeat. I only just found out he was coming back to the Gulf Coast so quickly. He was here in June! If I'd known, I would have definitely put in some major overtime in order to have the full experience. I will definitely be waiting patiently by his bus after the concert. Even though I live in Mobile and the concert is in Biloxi, it will be worth every minute of the drive home and to the tattoo shop if I can get him to sign my arm. I may get absolutely no sleep, because I have to work the next day. It won't matter; I work with wildlife, and I'll be flying higher than any of our raptors ever flew!

If you DO decide to wait by the bus, you may have a better chance of meeting the band than meeting Al.

I waited by the busses on Friday night. After about an hour I was about to turn around and leave( my friend who was with me had to get home to her kids and my husband was tired from a long day of working. I would have waited til the busses left if it was just me). As I was about to go I see Bermuda walking with some person and I told them wait and I ran to Bermuda and asked for his autograph. I asked him if Al was coming out to meet with us non VIP people and he said no so we knew then to leave. I have previously gotten Jim and Steve's autograph years ago on two separate occasions when they played at Kings Island. I still need to get Rubens and I have Al's but I have never seen him after a show so it's still on my bucket list.

Very exciting. I would have posted in the concert thread but no one seemed to care about his cincy stop but me

Thanks for the input, crazygurl14. That's so awesome that you got autographs from most of the guys. I'm hoping I'll get one from at least one of them. I'm like you, though, I won't mind staying by the bus til it leaves if there's a whisper of a chance that I will get to meet Al.
