[b]UPDATE:[/b] I just received this email from VIP Nation:
[i]Dear Dream Theater July 21 fans,
We have just been alerted that there has been a venue change for the Chester, PA show on July 21, 2012. It has been moved to Caesar’s in Atlantic City, NJ.
Your tickets have been transferred to the new venue and no further action is required on your part.
If you cannot make it to this new venue, please email us with your order ID number by Friday, July 13th at 3pm PST and we will give you a full refund.
YOUR VIP NATION TEAM[/i]
The thing that boggles my mind the most out of this whole situation is that the band has yet to say ANYTHING regarding the sudden change of venue.
I called VIP Nation yesterday and talked to somebody. Apparently they're still working with the new venue (Caesars) regarding seating. They told me to keep an eye out for an email. Yeah, well, the show is only 10 days away now!!!
[quote=Ytsejam58]Chester PA was the closest show that my dad was willing to go to. I finally convinced him to buy some tickets when I find out that It's been cancelled and replaced by Atlantic City. There's no way my dad's going to go to AC for a concert.
Come to Hershey sometime?[/quote]
I finally your pain, buddy. This sudden venue change really through me off-guard as well, and there has still been no official announcement regarding it.
Fortunately I'll still be able to attend the AC show, but I STILL haven't received any email from VIPNation about my ticket, and it's only 12 days away now!
For all you VIP ticket holders, I called VIP Nation today, and they said that they're still waiting to hear from the band's management about this situation. VERY unprofessional on the part of DT if you ask me. Not too happy right now.
Apparently, the show has been moved to Caesars in Atlantic City. http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/020048DCCD4D9D6B?artistid=744581&major...
I find it strange that the band has made NO official statement regarding this sudden venue change as of yet. I purchased my ticket through VIP Nation, and I've yet to receive any email from them. I'm a little irritated to say the least. I was really look forward to this show, as it was going to be my first time meeting the band.
