    VIP tix cost in the past

    Hey what did the VIP/Lolla lounge wrist bands cost last year?

    Moving this to the Tickets forum (and deleting all the stupid responses).

    Any helpful answers would be appreciated. I think they're approximately $1700/pair, but I'm not sure.

    I've never gotten VIP tix but I'm more or less aware of what you with them. But my question to those who have; is if they are worth it?

    EDIT: I mean, I would have to eat a lot of food and drink lots of beer to feel good about paying that much.
    Was that meant as irony, post-irony, sincerity, sarcasm, or sudden realization?

    It's worth it if $800 seems like a good price to:
    a. sit under an umbrella
    b. drink free beer and wine
    c. get a buffet laid out twice a day
    d. get shuttled from the North to the South stage in a golf cart
    e. pee in a toilet that's not a porta-potty
    f. potentially see someone famous

    Doesn't seem worth it to me.

    Plus, you miss out on the true experience, man...

    I am considering just for the free food/beer factor. I easily spent $100-$200 on food/drinks and I left the park hungry each day and sober 2/3 days.

    Plus I wouldn't mind not standing in H20 lines. You can always still leave the VIP area to watch from the mud pits.
    the correct answer is

    D. bring a knife and stab a player.

    g. have an express line into the park (in theory)

    Also, the alcohol has included Sailor Jerry's rum, Southern Comfort, and Tito's vodka. They even had Patron for a short period of time last year.

    The golf cart service may be worth it alone.

    I never really saw anyone famous unless you count Greg Kot.

    You'll need to get a wristband but there are people walking around checking IDs and giving them out (seriously they will be like the first people you see when you get into the park). Beer is expensive.

    edit: v v v This too.

    No more expensive than a beer in a metropolitan bar/sports arena. My complaint with alcohol is the lack of hard liquor.

    D. bring a knife and stab a player.

    Evidently you can sneak it in as I remember thousands of passed out Pearl Jam fans with empty bottles of whiskey next to them at 2 in the afternoon a few years back. That would definitely be cheaper than VIP.

    I'll offer $10, because even though I've heard of the Knife, I'm not the least bit familiar with the music, and because L&OSVU and CSI are reruns tomorrow night, so I won't be missing any new episodes of the shows.
