Eventually the time will come where group letter will be called to line up.
Groups will be called a few at a time with ultimates to go after them. You will be led into an area where the guys are waiting for you to hug them, say hi, hug them again, bite their leg if you did VIP inyou remember Robo saying it was fair playetc. After minutes, they will call for photos. Take your places, take your 2 photos and you'll be asked to walk out.
You'll pick up your gift bags on the way out. Ultimates will get roughly 5 minutes give or take. Normally you get 2 solo photos with the guys but the longer the tour goes, the longer the ultimate gets so some have been lucky to get 10 photos or more.
Props are no longer allowed. Only those with the Total Package deal will have it in "their dressing room. You are asked to check in your camera, but I normally don't. I know there have been a few lost souls who have done that only for their cameras to vanish so I don't take that risk and just keep it in my bag. You will be asked to leave your bag on a table when you walk into to meet the guys and someone will be on duty watching them so I find that to be a safer alternative.
Don't expect to have deep conversations with the guys overall. Same idea as to when you bought your package during any pre sale or general sale. About sneaking stuff in: The longer answer is: Depending who the bodyguards are, do so at your own peril.
I managed to get Donnie's sock signed in by tying it around my leg. I had people ask me later "what was with the bandage under your dress? Now that we settled into the tour, let's go over some of the changes that have been encountered. Specifically, what you NO longer get for the merchandise for Total Packages. I did speak to one of the hosts and the short version is It's about the vendors who lose their cut on the sales and as a result, something had to be done.
As a compromise, total package people are getting 2 T shirts valued at 35 dollars each and can be taken to merchandise to be exchanged for something of that value. I just gave away the shirts and bought the jersey, so if anyone has been successful in that exchange, I would love to hear from you. The wording has been changed to reflect that.
A bit annoying, but meh. I have heard nothing about the framed photos being sent to you but with all the candid shots being taken during Total Package time, it's not something I'm worried about.
They do mingle about and you can get to speak to each of them for a bit. Total Package photo groups are normally but the smaller the overall group, the more likelihood that you may end up with a solo group picture with them such as the case in Louisville.
I am about 5'6" and the stage came to JUST under my eyes. The "petals" or "pods" were about a foot lower. It was a bit hard being that close as I was straining my neck to look up and depending which NKOTBer you're trying to track, a bit hard if they're on the other side of the stage. But thankfully, I end up with the seat that is directly in front Donnie has to stand or kneel for songs so I did do an ultimate this year. If you have an ultimate, you will be assigned a group when you sign in.
While I won't share what transpired partially because it was a blur stress levels was bad due to traffic and partially some of it was too personal to share, I don't regret it.
Don't even expect 5 minutes which some were under the impression. You have the number of the hosts in your email, use it. You have the power to tweet VIPNation, do it and get your followers to help you. Someone is still living in Now about the after parties. They will do their best to have them on site this year at most venues based on that ad with a certain nerd yelling at you he needs to stop being that pretty but I digress. The cost is bucks. It's easier to pick up your pass from them up before the show starts at the VIP Nation check in.
The only guarantee of WHO will show up is Donnie. This includes a photo op.
NKOTB VIP - The NKOTB Fan Experience
This does NOT mean a meet and greet. You go in with minimum 2 or 4 per group depending how many members are there. No time to hug everyone. They seem to arrive at roughly and stay until 1 am or Some may mingle, others may stay on the stage. Once you're photos are done continue down the line greeting the guys. After that you're all done. You can't take anything in with you into the photo area so no cameras, purses, phones, stuff for them to sign, etc.
There are typically 10 available for each show depending on the type of event. Specialty, one off shows tend to have more available than the traditional 10 that a tour offers.
Keep in mind, they are very difficult to get! Ultimates usually go in after all of the photo groups are done. You will line up in the order that was assigned. When it is your turn you will go through the curtain.
Danny is usually the first to greet you. On The Main Event tour, the girl before you was finishing up with the last guy while you started. They seemed to move you down the line from guy to guy saying hi and taking photos. Depending on the photographer you may also get candid shots.
When you get to the middle, the guys usually call for a group photo and then continue to move you down the line. When you're nearing the end, the next girl would usually start.
