Celebs’ Greedy Meet-and-Greet Business
When I was a teenager, if you wanted to meet your musical idol backstage after a concert, there were only two ways to go about it — to win a competition, or to sneak past the burly security guards into their dressing room. Now, however, if you have money then pretty much anything is possible. It appear that a very lucrative ‘meet-and-greet’ industry has grown up around celebs like Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Madonna etc.
Check out the highest meet-and-greets of celebs:
She caused controversy when she asked for $ 1730 for meet-and-greet tickets on her 2009 tour — a big jump from her 2003 tour when they were $ 450. Only ten fans were allowed to meet the star before each one and they had to observe a ‘no hugging’ rule.
Tickets for VIP meet-and-greets on their current tour of North America were on sale through concert promoters Live Nation for $ 360, but are all sold out. Ticket Agency USA is offering a meet-and-greet with the boys when they play in Dallas on June 23 — for $ 1820 per ticket. That will enable fans to attend the band’s soundcheck, take home a gift and a commemorative laminated pass, meet the band and have their photograph taken with them.
The 18-year-old has an army of devoted fans, and while meet-and-greet tickets are said to be on offer for $ 550, they are sold out. Fans who want to meet their idol in October in LA will have to pay $ 3000 (!) for a single ticket via event specialist American Ticket Broker — cheap compared to meeting him in Minneapolis this October for an eye-watering $ 4300.
She so rarely holds meet-and-greets that there is a single ticket available for her Hyde Park date in July. The cost? $ 1890. It includes a ‘guaranteed photo’ with the star and one signed item.
The American pop princess offers meet-and-greets to competition winners and those who purchase the VIP package on sale for £319 — which includes a gift bag, laminated pass, free parking and a photo opportunity.
Meet-and-greet packages are available on his tour. You can say Hello to the soul star — and pick up a commemorative laminated pass and a gift in September in Dublin for $ 640.
Fans can buy tickets for special Platinum Package meet-and-greet backstage after-shows for her solo A Million Lights tour. The package includes a photo with Cheryl, a gift, a commemorative laminated pass and an autograph, all for $ 550.
Britney released some meet-and-greet tickets on her Femme Fatale tour in 2011, for which one fan paid $ 1000 for one in Jacksonville, Florida, and declared herself thrilled with the experience which included a photo opportunity and signed merchandise.
I knew that a lot of modern celebrities charged fans to meet them, but I never knew the prices of those packages so seeing the prices has disgusted me. How horrid do you have to be to charge people to meet you because you’re such a star when they make you a star? I disagree with the way fans act, but still! Fans buy their music, their concert tickets, their merchandise, all that nonsense but those celebrities that they give riches to, STILL want to charge them to meet them? Sorry but this is horrifying me because it’s just so wrong to treat other people like they are inferior to you in such a way especially when most are just teenagers or children! Most of the celebrities that charge for meet and greet packages have tacky song lyrics about partying etc. Sickening!
