Something I just noticed in the wording that the event organizers changed without telling people:
This was the original ad for the VIP thing: http://www.blastwaves.com/Motorhead/VIP_...no_CA/1237.html
the main thing other than the change in price I noticed was that originally it said:
"Premium ticket to the show (within the first 15 rows)"
but now it says:
"One premium, reserved ticket in the first 15 rows of the reserved seating sections
So - the reserved seating sections can be anywhere and are unlikely to be in the first 15 rows now.
There are a few small other changes if you compare the old link with the current one.
I think these changes were made by the promoters so I don't think Motorhead or their management are to blame.
