Jan 20, Here is the information from NKOTB about VIP tickets for The Main Event Tour: NKOTB - The Main Event VIP Program VIP Ticket Packages.
Once you're inside, there is a pre-party. Typically you get drink tickets which are good for beer or wine.
Depending on the venue there may also be snacks. Once it's time for the photo op, it's best to line up in the order the guys are standing in. The most efficient way to handle your time is to walk in, hug the guys and say hi as you go down the line.
Once you get to your guy you stop. They will take 2 photos and more than likely will take them if you're ready or not! Once you're photos are done continue down the line greeting the guys. After that you're all done. You can't take anything in with you into the photo area so no cameras, purses, phones, stuff for them to sign, etc.
There are typically 10 available for each show depending on the type of event. Specialty, one off shows tend to have more available than the traditional 10 that a tour offers. Keep in mind, they are very difficult to get! Ultimates usually go in after all of the photo groups are done.
You will line up in the order that was assigned. Only managed to snag one during the Full Service sale, had to buy the other during the regular sale. Based on my experience, your ticket IS determined by when you bought so the sooner the better. So if you have the basic green one, it's not that one.
However if you know what the code is which I'm NOT giving out I need to keep some things to myself! So how easy it is to snag one? It's just like real estate: Smaller cities will be less of an issue.
Then there are the ultimates: So yeah, you're paying 40 bucks for slightly better odds. Sadly, several people like myself have had problems landing an ultimate: You can't move ahead, you can't go back and if you call, VIPNation can't help you as there are too many people logged in at the same time. I did this for 3 people, and none have had an issue, it's more to dissuade people from just buying the upgrade alone.
After months and months of waiting When you arrive at the venue, you will be checked in to get your laminate with a letter on the back indicating your group and your ticket the ticket will NOT be sent to you, so you know it's not a Ground Control event.
If you show up solo with no group, they will place you in one with an open slot to fill. So if you want to stand next to Joey that badly, you're better off pre planning. Look for people on the BN forums or online.
You get someone out of nowhere who also wants to stand by Donnie and you have to start negotiating with them that they're going with someone else.
That happened to me out of the few times I finally had Donnie for one photo op. Not fun, but him saying "Yikes, you're getting blocked" was sweet. Who wants that headache? Once you pass through, you will have the chance to eat, drink, be merry, etc.
NKOTB News: April
I suggest eat a decent meal before going. Eventually the time will come where group letter will be called to line up. Groups will be called a few at a time with ultimates to go after them. You will be led into an area where the guys are waiting for you to hug them, say hi, hug them again, bite their leg if you did VIP inyou remember Robo saying it was fair playetc.
After minutes, they will call for photos. Take your places, take your 2 photos and you'll be asked to walk out. You'll pick up your gift bags on the way out. Ultimates will get roughly 5 minutes give or take.
Normally you get 2 solo photos with the guys but the longer the tour goes, the longer the ultimate gets so some have been lucky to get 10 photos or more. Props are no longer allowed.
Only those with the Total Package deal will have it in "their dressing room. You are asked to check in your camera, but I normally don't.NKOTB 2012 backstage Rotterdam
I know there have been a few lost souls who have done that only for their cameras to vanish so I don't take that risk and just keep it in my bag. You will be asked to leave your bag on a table when you walk into to meet the guys and someone will be on duty watching them so I find that to be a safer alternative. Don't expect to have deep conversations with the guys overall.

Same idea as to when you bought your package during any pre sale or general sale. About sneaking stuff in: The longer answer is: Depending who the bodyguards are, do so at your own peril. I managed to get Donnie's sock signed in by tying it around my leg. I had people ask me later "what was with the bandage under your dress? Now that we settled into the tour, let's go over some of the changes that have been encountered.
Specifically, what you NO longer get for the merchandise for Total Packages. I did speak to one of the hosts and the short version is It's about the vendors who lose their cut on the sales and as a result, something had to be done. As a compromise, total package people are getting 2 T shirts valued at 35 dollars each and can be taken to merchandise to be exchanged for something of that value.
I just gave away the shirts and bought the jersey, so if anyone has been successful in that exchange, I would love to hear from you. The wording has been changed to reflect that. A bit annoying, but meh. I have heard nothing about the framed photos being sent to you but with all the candid shots being taken during Total Package time, it's not something I'm worried about.
