There's a dilemma?

Edit: I see the problem... However foos tour constantly and they always play pretty much the same set list. Pearl jam won't have played here for two year and they always mix it up a bit. Foos won't just play one date in the UK too.
Also I highly doubt they'd play the same date in London. Would be bad planning!

Jesus, the state of gigging these days. Pay a credit card company extra to have a Pimm's behind the stage.

Would we not all pay for a membership if FF did this? I'd be happy to if we got priority tickets, entry and special 'VIP areas' for shows.

Weezer have the same type of thing too and their fans get early entry to all of their shows. I think it costs around $50 per year and you get special merch included for joining too.

hell yes. I think this has been brought up a couple of times over the years. Hasn't happened though, sadly.

American Express gets you into the “ten club” golden circle, or so I’m told.

It doesn't. Sadly. Was the only option not on the list.

There's an American express presale today. I don't know why it's not been well publicised but we got six tickets earlier.

The ten club has a special section at the front. We've got general admittance for £84.50 and a preordered tshirt for £25.

I’d happily pay for a FF fan club if it meant extra privileges!

It’s not too bad getting tix where I am but I can imagine trying to get tickets in the UK would be a nightmare, blink and they’ve sold out. I know we get presale codes but then they’re all over the internet within moments.

Exactly! Social media is not good for pre-sale stress...

We were lucky in the UK that we had 3 pre-sales to work with for London Stadium 2018 and 2 for Manchester (Album pre-order/Email list/venue pre-sale), but it's still not fun!

A fan club would help a lot I think.
1/2 tickets per show, per membership, something like that.

Ive said this so many times but the pre-sale code thing could work so much better if it was an individual code and it doesnt need to be a paid membership. If when you signed up to the FF newsletter you were issued a membership number this could become your pre-sale code and if you had to provide a credit card number at sign up then any tickets bought under with the pre-sale code could be transacted straight to that card. That would stop people sharing codes if the code would take money from their account.
