The shows I went to had a Q&A session ahead of time for an extra $10. Are you kidding me! What have we become in the Christian culture where we have to pay to ask a question!!! Ridiculous! What's next will they charge for a signature like old washed up athletes? I understand that it takes time to answer questions, but really. . .
One of the two shows I went to had the VIP or Preferred ticketing. The VIP tickets did include a meet and greet that was separate from the regular meet and greet after the show. However, we didn't attend that session. VIP was an extra $15 and provided early access to the venue, meet and greet, and seating on the first 2 rows. Preferred was $10 extra and provided a little later "early access" to the venue and seating in the first 5 rows. The other ticket options were general admission.
Being the mother of an autistic child, it was an easy way for us to get early access to the venue and make my child feel comfortable with the venue before the show started. This was important to us, and we were willng to pay the extra $15 in our situation. We could have called the church ahead of time and explained our situation, and I'm sure they would have come up with a solution at no additional cost to us. But, we preferred to pay the extra money and not draw attention to my daughter so that we could take things at more at her pace. We were happy that this option existed at the first show and wished it was an option at the 2nd show we went to the following night.
My experience both nights is that all of the artists met with anyone that wanted to meet them and ask a question. None of them made the fans feel rushed in asking questions. All were patient, kind and sincere. They didn't give short answers either. They really engaged with anyone that asked a question. So, in the end, everyone (VIP, Preffered, and General Admission tickets) got to meet the artists and ask questions if they wanted to.
Given the chance to do it all over again, we still would have gladly paid for the VIP tickets. Even if the extra money did not include the Q&A session (which we didn't actually go to) but only provided preferred seating, we would still pay it again.
