10. What if someone else bought the package for me?

A. We advertise that VIP packages are non-transferable. However we understand that there are times when someone might purchase a package as a gift or on behalf of a family member or friend who does not have access to a credit card. Photo identification of the original package purchaser is required at the time of check-in. If the package has been purchased on your behalf, or given as a gift, then you MUST provide a letter of authorization from the original purchaser together with a photocopy of their photo ID, along with your own, enabling you to collect the package elements. Your signature will be required at the time of check-in to acknowledge that you have received the package elements. We discourage people to purchase VIP packages from unofficial sources. If a VIP package has been purchased from a site such as ebay (for example), unless you supply the above documentation at check-in, VIP Nation reserves the right to cancel the package including the concert ticket. These measures are taken in order to where possible prevent scalping.

11. What do I need on the day?  

A. Photo ID will be required on the day at check-in (or a copy of the original purchasers photo ID and a letter of authorisation) and any other items as specified in the VIP information email.

12. Can I bring a camera to the VIP party? 

A. Yes you can bring a camera to the VIP party, however you will need to abide by venue restrictions in terms of the camera being allowed into the auditorium. Professional cameras with detachable lenses are generally not allowed into auditoriums. 

13. Can I bring a camera to the meet & greet? 

A. The VIP information email will outline camera restrictions as it depends on the tour. Generally VIP Nation meet & greets will include the provision of a professional photographer to capture the photo opportunity. A link to those photos will generally be supplied within 48 hours.  If a professional photographer is included, no personal cameras may be brought into the meet & greet space. Smaller tours may request that VIP patrons bring their own cameras to have the VIP Representative take the photos on your behalf or for you to take a “selfie” with the artist.

14. Are tickets always included in VIP packages?

A.  No. Reserved seat or general admission tickets are not always included in the VIP package and care must be taken when purchasing to determine if entry into the concert is included or not. Some VIP packages are upgrades only and require the patron to already have a concert ticket.  

15. What if my concert tickets haven’t arrived before the show?

A. VIP Nation do not issue the concert tickets, it is all done through the ticketing agencies. We would suggest that you firstly check your ticketing receipt to see if you chose to have your tickets posted out or venue collect and then if you still are not sure what to do, contact the ticketing agency you purchased through.

16. What if I turn up late and miss the check-in period?

A. You will need to contact VIP Nation via email on the next working day to make arrangements to get the tour gifts. Any postage is at patron cost.
