VIP Nation's new policies state that one can buy a VIP package (that guarantees one a seat within the first 15 rows of a venue) through their website for around $300 USD but will not know one's actual seat until the day of the show. It is gathered from this new policy that this is to prevent resale of tickets to professional brokers who would then in turn make a huge profit at the band's expense. However, this is a huge gamble- one could ostensibly buy a VIP package and end up with a seat on the far aisle of the 15th row of an arena- a terrible view for the amount of money paid for it. This is quite different than the Time Machine Tour VIP packages that told one immediately where one's seat would be. This will not stand.
Sign the petition and tell VIP Nation you will NOT accept these new rules! By waiting until literally the last second to reveal one's seat locations, VIP Nation is making Rush's audience gamble on their seat. Anyone who has seen Rush in concert can tell you the enormous difference between second row center and 12th row on the aisle. By making concertgoers take this gigantic chance on seating, VIP Nation has forced many loyal, diehard fans to turn to brokers- the very action VIP Nation was perhaps trying to prevent in the first place.
If you agree that this backwards, illogical process should be reversed, please sign! Also join the Facebook group (Rush Fans AGAINST VIP Nation):
