After surprising fans with an Axl Rose/Slash reunion for this year’s Coachella Festival, Guns N’ Roses announced two warm-up shows in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena. The 20,000 seat venue is completely sold out with almost four months until the shows.
General admission ranged from $79.50 to $350.00, the latter being level one and floor seating. However, here’s where things get really outrageous: VIP packages ranged from $649.00 to a whopping $2,500.
Well, at least you get to meet Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, right? Wrong. The $2,500 package, dubbed “The Signature VIP Experience,” does not include a meet and greet feature, nor do any of the lesser priced packages.
Let’s take a look what you get with the priciest VIP package, stripped of all the fancy language on the ticket website. These VIPs receive one reserved lower level ticket in the first ten rows, an autographed silkscreened tour poster, a photo on stage before the show, a backstage tour, VIP lounge with refreshments and a host, a separate priority check-in entrance, and a gift bag with some goodies. Also, if you still have some change leftover after dropping almost $3,000 on the ticket, you get a special, skip-the-line merch shopping opportunity.
The other packages include bits and pieces of the signature package. Take a look at the full list here.
