Wow, that is a great, fast and professional way to handle an unfortunate situation. Now- I wasn't there- but what seems like a highly unprofessional (bordering the bizarr) handeling of things by local reps and auths, seems to have been extremely swiftly and nicely made-up for by the band reps. That this sort of clean up can still be done - and this fast -despite dealing with a multitude of various biz godzillas, shows it's still possible to play by sound and rightous rules in today's business. Kudos to TP! (Now, just don't wait for LAFD to show up each time you feel like making honorable and independent decisions, sticking to your famous integrity. In fact - instead of putting out "fires" (not that this one couldn't have happened anyway, but still) - act preventive and ditch all the mf:s using the TP brand in dubious ways, pronto.)
Just one thing though that I'm curious about. I wasn't able myself to get tickets to any shows this year, due to an unclear cluster-f*** of HCC- issues, but I was under the impression that at least these ultra special and wonderful recidency shows was totally sold out and otherwise generously handed over for free to valued and/or social media company customers. Still, just now this clause cought my eye: Customers who purchased artist released tickets night of show at the venue must bring back their original ticket stub to the Fonda Theatre beginning Wednesday for a full refund. Wow. Does this actully mean there where tickets sold at the door?! If so - d*mn me for not flying to LA to give that a go. I didn't even dream it, given the rareness and purity of the occasion. This is the real deal, what playing live music is really all about, making the rest of it seem like business, poses and excuses - and there is tickets at the door?! It's a christmas miracle. In june. :) :/ Yay for more dates in coming years and a truley real and cool way of doing business!
OMG!! - when. the. time. comes.
why oh why was I so far away from that one?
man, those really are awesome photos. kudos
