In the transportation industry, it's first class vs. coach, the former providing excellent accommodations with more personal service, better entry times, and often better views, with the later having fewer frills and the bare necessities. In the entertainment industry, primary in the music/comedy concert and comic convention businesses, but also in the sports and museum/tourist attraction, a similar "class divide" usually exists, normally between General Admission (which frankly, isn't as much of a value as it once was) and more expensive VIP packages. The former tends to have average to nosebleed seats, fair to poor visibility of the featured performers, a very low chance of obtaining an autograph of the featured performer, and sometimes, lower parking privileges. VIP usually means seating in the first few rows, a better chance of meeting the artist in person and receiving an autograph, great visibility and sound, and in the case of tourist attractions, visiting certain exhibits or bonus tours that aren't available with general admission. VIP tickets are often more difficult to receive due to the die-hard fans that are quick to be fulfilling to go all out to have the experience of a lifetime for them.

The purpose of this topic is simply about your experiences and the different categories in terms of how you wished you had a VIP seat, were fine with the value of the GA ticket, or upgraded to VIP and didn't find it as special as you thought it would be, namely in the form of just a better seat. For example, sometimes you see conventions or tours with three, four, or five acts on the bill and you see something about a VIP package gives you the "chance" to meet them in person, and you were randomly chosen one rather the one of your choice.

When I go to a concert, I will pay for an orchestra seat. I usually sit about 10 rows from the front.

I'm usually very frugal, but I figure the singer is coming to my area once, and I have no idea when they'll come back, so I am fine paying for it just once. My limit is about $350.

I wanted to go to a Jennifer Lopez concert in Las Vegas, but orchestra seats were $800. HECK NO. Not for 2 hours. I don't care who it is.

I will NOT buy any VIP package because I don't want to meet any of them. It's like Adele said when she met her idol. She was disappointed. It's a real possibility and I don't want to be disappointed, so I'd rather not even meet them at all. Besides, the cost isn't worth it. Not at all.

I can't really get into the 'meet' VIP thing. They don't want to meet you, they are being paid to be polite - and aren't always polite. That sounds awful. In that moment it just seems weird and awkward. The distance is too far.
