Meet and Greet misleads ZZ Top's fans

Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 4:22 PM By: SherriD

First of all, concert was awesome! We bought the diamond package for ZZ Topp's show at the Fox Theater in Bakersfield, Ca. VERY disappointed...not allowed to: shake hands or talk to the band and ABSOLUTELY no asking the band to autograph ANYTHING!! It was NOT a meet and greet, but a photo op only!!! So, if anyone else buys the diamond package do not expect anything other than a very quick photo with the band and a quick out the door ya go! BUYER BEWARE is right!!! They didn't even take our names down when they took our picture, so I have no idea how they're going to know where to mail our picture to!!!

    Couldn't agree more. I hope someone from the band reads this and not just some guys who maintain the website!

    I NEVER criticized their show!!! They were awesome!! All I was trying to do was inform people that might expect to shake hands or say hi or to get an autograph that we were told right beforehand in a speech from their management none of that was allowed. ZZ Top acted very kind and smiled at us. I couldn't refuse to even tell them they were awesome!! I even got a smile and thank you from them!! :)

    Does anyone know when we are supposed to receive our signed lithographs from the concert on August 14th in Bakersfield, Ca?

    Yeah, it really does sound like everyone who got the Diamond package got scammed!

    I love the band, but if the autographs on the posters are fake and the meet and greet is only a photo op (VIP package promises a meet and greet AND a photo), that is fraud. The show was great, but I haven't gotten my poster and I only got 10 secs standing by the band for the photo. I suggest a class action law suit alleging fraud and breach of contract. Perhaps that would get someone's attention.
