I was clarifiying someone else's post. If you purchased your tickets within the first 48 you're fine. But the email confirming your purchase means nothing, everyone is going to get that no matter where they order the tickets from. Please read the first post of this thread, it spells out everything you need to know about the pre-sales.

Yes, you will be getting an e-mail with information when you line up and such. Unless 100 people managed to get tickets before 3:02, you are just fine! You guys have to have patience. There is still other tours happening and everything is done day by day. You will receive e-mails closer to the date so there is absolutely nothing to worry about right now. :)

The names will also probably be posted in the events section closer to the date in addition to you receiving an email, though the names typically go up before the emails go out :)

I don't know why you deleted my thread so I'll ask here <.<

When we go into Soundcheck, do they ask our names and cross them off on a list or something? If so, is it our SPCrew name or our real name?

Thanks!

The thread was deleted because all M&G/EE/Pre-sale questions are supposed to be asked in this thread to keep from cluttering up the boards.

Your real name is on the list I believe. I know here in the states they ask for ID from time to time. It's usually dependent on who's doing it and from venue to venue.

Sorry about that. And thank you!
I gave them my nick name "Mel" when my full name is Melanie which is on my ID.. I hope that doesn't change anything |:

Re: Pre-Sale/M&G/EE FAQ Thread.

PRE-SALE INFORMATION
-Pre sale starts 9/20, 3pm LOCAL VENUE TIME (meaning, 3pm in the time zone of the venue) and runs for 48 hours.
-EVERYONE who purchases a ticket via this pre-sale will gain access to Simple Plan's exclusive Sound Check Party & Early Entry into the venue. These perks are for SP Crew members ONLY.
-There are two packages for this tour. The first one being just a GA ticket to the event and the second being the Enhanced Ticket/Merch bundle which includes the following: A TICKET TO THE SHOW, AN SP CREW POSTER TO MATCH THE GYHO COVER ART, AN EXCLUSIVE SIMPLE PLAN PHOTO SET IN PHOTO SLEEVE, ONE SIMPLE PLAN T-SHIRT (TOUR DESIGN OF THE BANDS CHOICE IN ALTERNATE COLOR) AND A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD SENT TO YOU AFTER THE TOUR.[/i]

So anything you guys need clarification on?

I bought pre-sale ticket for MD show (26/11) on late Sep 29th. The tickets were not on sale until Sep 30 morning. As you wrote:

"-Pre sale starts 9/20, 3pm LOCAL VENUE TIME (meaning, 3pm in the time zone of the venue) and runs for 48 hours.
-EVERYONE who purchases a ticket via this pre-sale will gain access to Simple Plan's exclusive Sound Check Party & Early Entry into the venue. These perks are for SP Crew members ONLY."

In my case, I did not bought ticket within the first 48 hours of the pre-sale. I bought my ticket before it is on sale in public. So do I have a chance to access SCP/EE on the tour @Fillmore Maryland this 11/26?

Thanks for concerning:) Helpful topic :)

I've already answered this question, but if you purchased the tickets BEFORE the ticketing site changed over to where you needed to enter a username and password to access it, you will have qualified. If you needed to enter a username (simple) and password (plan), then you did not.

I know this is random, but I was thinking about it.

Do you guys anticipate that those who go to the soundcheck party will be sent back out (but then of course go in before everyone else)?

I went to MCR's soundcheck back in May, and what we did was go in at about 4 pm, watch soundcheck (we were all standing side by side), meet the band, then were ushered back out with everyone else, as we didn't necessarily have early entry.

But at the soundcheck for the show on the day after, soundcheck happened a little later than the day before, and those people stayed in the venue until doors.

I've never been to an SP soundcheck party though, and I know it may differ from past tours and other bands.

yeah i was wondering if i ma have to go back out too but i dont think i have to since, early entry must mean you enter first and you stay there right?

i can't wait

Just a quick question! Assuming I do have soundcheck/ee what do I need at the show? I know its early but if it's my laminate I'm going to have to start digging through boxes for it...

They do ask that you bring your laminate with you. But in the instance you don't photo ID and your email is usually enough.
