Good afternoon Angel sisters, fans;
I am going to skip the loving introductions today as I am a bit agitated and hopefully this post can rectify my problem. I am hoping that it will because I have gotten absolutely nowhere with Trey's VIP team, no response from Treys Angels, and no response from Atlantic. I do understand that everyone is very busy arranging the itinerary and show details for the tour however since I am a member of this fan club, and a paying one at that it is only fair that someone hear my voice and address my concern.
When the Love faces tour information was first dropped ya'll know immediately I jumped at the opportunity because I have been trying to make it to at least 3 concerts previously and for each one, my plans were cancelled either due to work or illness. I was determined to be at this show REGARDLESS, and to get my opportunity to share in the experience that most of you have had which is meeting "My Favorite" artist Tremaine (Trey Songz) Neverson. As an artist, a fan, and a professional I felt it was important that I be there in support of him.
I purchased my airline tickets to go from FL to NY to attend that show. Then I discussed with another Angel her going as well. We missed the Angel Pre-Sale but were like okay Ticketmaster had posted that they would be selling VIP packages to NY on Jan 21st at 10:00am Est. I thought for sure we would be ok. The morning of the 21st I sat on ticketmaster's site waiting for the sale time so I could cop our tickets and be done. Starting at 9:55am there were issues with the site and every time I tried to search for the VIP package and seating I got an error message. This is when I started emailing Treys Angels and Trey's VIP Team. Maybe 3 or 4 hours after my email I received an email from Trey's VIP stating that all VIP was sold out. Needless to say I was pissed because by this time ticketmaster wasn't allowing regular seating purchase as well. (Several Angels also tried to purchase regular seating and had issues).
So, I paid Delta to change my flight from NY to Richmond VA (home) and linked up with the VA Angels for us to travel and attend the DC show together so I'm like okay cool. I go online and purchase 2 seats directly through the DAR Constitution Hall Box Office (Orchestera Left Row E) seats and paid $588.00 plus tax plus express delivery for these tickets that were originally priced at $75.00 JUST SO I COULD STILL BE THERE TO SEE AND REP FOR TREMAINE AND THE ANGELS. (I would go to the moon for him, and I would pay substantially but within reason)
Now just last night I get a call that ticketmaster has re-opened the availability for VIP for the DC show and get this...... It is only $100 more than what I paid for my 2 regular seats. Can you see my aggravation? Now I have to make the choice of do I keep the seats I have and miss the opportunity to meet my inspiration? OR do I put them up for sale and while waiting for a buyer potentially miss out on any available VIP left plus any regular seating if VIP is gone and I have given up my already purchased tickets?
This is so not fair. It is a HUGE gamble because I could potentially lose everything and not wind up at the show at all if all seating is sold out and I have sold my seats. I don't know what to do (smdh with tears in my eyes). I want to meet Tremaine so bad and tell him my many thanks, that I am left speechless and frazzled at the moment. I am already into this trip about $3000.00 between hotels, flights, tickets, spending cash, transportation, and the usual hair, nails, outfits for 2 people meaning me and the Angel I am taking. this was my gift to her for what she has done for me! And my thanks to Tremaine for what HE had done for me. Well, dream killed!
Does anyone have any suggestions? Does anyone have VIP that they want to sell? What do I do with the tickets that I have? What choice should I make? If it were just me I would take the gamble because meeting Tremaine is what is most important to me but I have the other Angel to think about.
Help me out sisters cuz I am at a loss. I emailed Atlantic and Treys Angels and they have not responded. I did get an e-mail from Trey's VIP and they were so impersonal in responding:
"Unfortunately there are no upgrades or upsells for VIP. As stated in the email the VIP was sold out at the time you initially inquired on Jan 21st. If issues arise such as credit card fraud etc those seats are opened back up by ticketmaster. Enjoy the show"
Where was the love or possibility of coming to a mutual resolution in that answer? Angels please help, fans alike please help.
