    I emailed Ground Ctrl today and asked when I should be getting mine. I had a Diamond Package at the Nashville show on June 30. Here is their reply:

    I got mine a couple days ago related to the Estero (Fort Myers) Florida show of June 15.

    The signatures are all in the same silver marker and are signed BFG, Frank and Dusty.

    IMO, the signatures on this poster do not match up very well to the signed posters uploaded on this site from fans who attended Manchester, NH or Atlantic City, NJ. The FRANK signature is totally different.

    Here's THAT thread...

    Yeah, I hate to break it to you, but I've got a lot of stuffed signed in person by them and those signatures don't look real. None of them seem to match up - again, just my opinion.

    I am not sure how to upload a picture of my poster on this site but I just got it 8/27 from the 6/18 show in Des Moines. Signatures are all in silver like the pictures above. The only difference is the F in Frank is connected at the bottom (as if the pen was never lifted from the the vertical line to the horizontal line crossing it).

    Not a single one of these look anything like the poster from earlier in the tour ( nor any of the autographs that can be seen on Ebay or Google Images. I highly doubt that any of the signatures would pass PSA authentication.

    I plan to call tomorrow and voice my concerns of the validity of any of the "autographs" but I'm guessing that they will just say "Those are the posters the band sent us". Seems like a bunch of BS...why wouldn't you give the VIPs posters on the spot? Too many questions and nobody will give an answer.

    Please let me know what you find out. Im doing the VIP experience next week in Maine. If they pull the same thing (posters will be mailed) I'm going to pull this picture up on my phone and let em have it...

    I talked with a girl at Ground Control yesterday for about 15 minutes. She explained that they had to wait for the band manager to send them the posters, which creates the delay for Ground Control getting them out to the VIPs. I explained to her the situation with the different signatures and advised her to check out these forum posts to see the pictures because anyone that looks at them can see that they aren't even close. She said that she was going to pass the message along to her superiors. Then she said that she didn't know what they could really do since they send out what they get from the band manager, so Ground Control assumes what they send to be authentic. I replied that I bought the VIP package from GC, therefore GC owes me the autographed poster I paid for. And it will be GC's responsibility to address this situation with the band manager. I don't know if they will follow through, so I plan to keep calling until I feel like they have addressed the situation and I get some answers.

    If you are going to a show, there is a girl that kind of runs the Meet & Greet session and takes all the pictures. She will have you all in a group to explain the process before the band comes out. I suggest bringing this issue up to her while in front of the whole group. If enough people are aware of the situation, then maybe something will get done about it.

    There is a new thread under the VIP section of the forum titled "Autograph Posters are Fake" that I have links to this thread with the picture of these posters as well as a link to an item on Ebay that was authenticated by PSA on 5/1/12.

    Please share this with any and everyone that you can. Hopefully we can get some resolve.
    Please follow up with any info you get from shows.

    So Dan, what happened? Same thing in Boise on the 21st. We were told we'd get an email with the details. No email, no poster, guess I'm lucky I figured out where the photo was. Bullshit!

    I have not returned to this site since I was shipped the OBVIOUS FAKED autographs of the band after last summer's VIP experience I had at Estero, Florida of which I then posted above in this thread.

    I was later contacted by another member who told me that he was sent THREE PHONIES all signed exactly the same way - faked! That member asked for my personal information (which I provided) to be included in his remarks to the proper authorities in requesting that his/her fraudulent 'autographs' be made right.

    I have not heard back from that person about any results gained by actions taken. However, I see now that it is well known and accepted that fake autographs were passed off as legit and sent to VIP experience ticket holders and that at least some have been made right.

    I post again here that I know I was sent a litho with forged band signatures and demand that Ground Control make things right. I have just sent them an email stating the same. I will not support this band again if I am not made whole. Thank you. ZZ Top - get better management.

    Ground (ctrl) - the event promoter and company that runs this website has deleted most of the treads regarding this issue. Thankfully, I have screen shots of the threads and the topics regarding this. This is not over.

    Ground Control is jerking me off too. Once any of us left the meet and greet without a signed litho, they broke their contract to us (since it was not stated we would receive the litho's at a later date) If this drags on I am more than willing to gather all pissed off fans for a class action law suit. They are dead to rights.
