VIP Party Packages.... worth it?

Has anyone been to a show yet with VIP Party Package tickets? If so did you feel it was worth it? Im thinking about getting one for NYC but want to know if it's worth $700+ CDN

I have a couple party package tickets for Phoenix this Saturday. I didn't pay for them, and to be honest I don't think they would be worth the price. I'd rather pay less money and have GA, but of course I'm still really excited.

Of course I can let you know how everything goes.

Did VIP in San Jose night #1. Did RedZone on San Jose night 2. Would say I enjoyed RedZone more since there is way more energy as part of the GA crowd vs. VIP we were 12 rows up, side of stage. Crowd was less into in up there.

VIP dinner was decent, chicken, beef, pasta, potatoes, bread, salads, dessert,etc. 2 beers or wines for each person included. Out of approximately 250 people, they only raffled off 1 pair of backstage tour. Thought that could have been at least a few more.

Tour "gift" is actually pretty cool. A booklet with picks, autographs, copies of old setlists from War and Boy tour. Have not had a chance to read it in detail yet.

When I bought tix, VIP was what came up, I don't even recall selecting them intentionally. So I don't regret it, but for that money, I think it should include a backstage tour. I am doing VIP for Van Halen and it includes attending soundcheck and is about the same price with 2nd row seats.

We did get to see Edge, Larry and Bono before the show at the back of arena for some autographs. That was easily the highlight of the past 2 days.

Awesome. Thanks for the feedback. Interesting to know. I kind of agree. For $700 I think a meet and great or back stage tour should be included for sure. Would be great for the people who won the raffles

The Van Halen VIP packages, while far from cheap do seem to give a decent amount of swag, plus soundcheck with them should be quite cool.

Looks like pre printed autographs. Am I wrong?

Correct, pre-printed autographs.

Did your VIP pass allow you to go onto the floor? ... Or did you have to stay in your seats?
