I recently did the Meet & Greet at Grand Prairie, TX. I have some thoughts on it and would like to hear what others think about their M&G experience.
Briefly, the way the M&G went was we got to the concert hall 3 hours before the concert started. After around 45 minutes we were brought back for a photo with the band. They did the photos in fairly rapid succession. Then you cue back up to get autographs. When going through this line you have a chance to shake hands, talk for about 1 minute per band member. Then you collect your bag of awesome DT memorabilia and go to your seat - first three rows. I think I paid $350 for all this.
My overall thought on the experience is "worth it" and "will do it again." You get to hang out with other true fans and it is fun hearing about their experiences. Plus - to shake the hands of such masters of their craft as Mike, James, John, Jordan, and John is an honor.
With that said there is one piece of feedback that I would give in hopes that I can see what other people think and, maybe, even have the members of DT see. It would have been nice to have had something like a "social hour" with the band.
I did not actually count but I think there were around 80 people at the event. It seems like it would be feasible to have the members in a room where we could talk a bit with them or have some sort of Q&A with the band.
While it seems feasible, I do not pretend to understand the logistics of such a thing. Security might be a concern. I dont know. But, while I do feel like I got $350 of value out of the experience, that is not a small amount to pay for a concert. It would have been absolutely exceptional to get a little more face time.
