Major Label Level
Registered: May 2007
I see pros but also cons of this as it disadvantages fans that are simply not able to afford to pay €20 a month even if P!nk is not currently doing anything.
Also it creates a one but major problem. What if a show (let's go big and say for example in London) is sold out, but then, out of nowhere, 50 (or even more) fans who pay this weekly amount to have a guaranteed access, shows up at the venue door? What will the organisers do? They can't kick out 50 people who bought tickets on regular sale, but they can't due to health & safety reasons just let in 50 extra people. An let's be honest, the venue/ticketmaster etc. won't be like "we need to sell 50 less tickets, as 50 people from P!nk's fanclub could show up..". Or worse, let's say, only two people would show up, and the venue would have 'lost' 48 tickets they could have easily sell in general sale. And then P!nk's team would not only have to deal with ticketmaster in London but basically around the world and each venue because they would never know how many and where would people with this pass show up. That is just not possible.
I think the easiest thing P!nk could do is fan pre-sale. People would easily sign up to her mailing list, and then before the tour goes on sale, people would get pre-sale code that they could use.
I do get frustrated with tickets to big shows (including P!nk) especially here because they sell out within hours (sometimes even minutes, but not (yet) with P!nk). For example, TTAL show was sold out here in five hours. But here, Ticketmaster is dumb, they have their own "sister site" and basically what unofficially Ticketmaster does is they put many tickets on their sister site and the prices are three or four times higher.
But, I mean, I was able to get tickets to see Adele in general sale.. so I hope I'll snatch one for P!nk too.
