Default Mickís Meet and Greets

I got an email yesterday about meet and greets being available. $600 + fees apiece. Has anyone here done this before? Is it worth it?

I know things are a little bit contentious around here right now but Iím looking for honest opinions and reviews. so if it all possible, no name calling here. Thanks in advance.

In that past, I paid about that amount for a Meet'n'Greet with Mick. However, it came with a ticket.

You get a bag of stuff, but it's not really that great. I think the "big item" in the bag this time is a scarf, so that tells you something. For me, it was a drum head, which is pretty useless.

The Q&A is about 20 minutes. He is friendly and answers questions in an open manner. Unfortunately, the questions from audience members are usually not that interesting. I tried to think of an example and I seriously cannot remember one single question that was asked. It would be cool if you could get him to talk about Lindsey's firing, but I kind of doubt that is going to be allowed.

The best part is getting to take a picture with him. For that brief time, you get a moment with him. You can have a private word with him. However, that "moment" is about 60 seconds.

If you really, really want to meet a member of Fleetwood Mac, this is your best bet. He's the only one that does this. Otherwise, I do not think it is worth it without a ticket.

I never got paying money to meet a celebrity. I've met Mick in person and oh boy is it a let down.

I will pay someone to ask a real question why he prevented Bob Welch from being inducted in the Rock N Roll hall of fame.
He loves those lame questions from casual fans. This one would possibly give you the death stare

Any takers?

Thanks.

Iím curious about what the scarf looks like but no $600 curious haha. And
Iím not so desperate to meet Mick, itís just that heís one step from the rest of the band, and an old partner/drug buddy of Stevieís, so thatís what the appeal is. Iíd also like to see the view from the stage.

I would be asking for either details about Lindsay or whatever crazy cocaine story he would share. My guess though, is that he would probably share neither one.

Nathan, if the money isn't a stretch for you
then I say go for it. You never know if this
is your only chance. I had a little time with
him (for free) and he was nice.

I'll refrain from commenting on what's going
on now since you asked.

Read Mick's first book about the crazy cocaine stories

Thanks. It wouldnít be a stretch except I already have a front row center ticket. So now to add another $600+fees makes me want to start typing his name with a dollar sign or whatever in it too.

the view from the stage is probably the best part of experience. of course, everybody would buy those m&gs in the past since they would come with good tix in first 5 rows. no doubt that he won't sell many now.

we were also discussing it here, someone asked the same question: http://ledge.fleetwoodmac.net/showpo...5&postcount=10

I suspect any questions about lB will be off limits.

But this is how it was back in 2013-2015. There was no off limit questions but it was hard to get your questions answered too.
after doing a few of these, most people would just pick up their tix and skip meeting Mick.

I met him at one of his book signings, which was not totally free because I bought his book though it was not required. I got a photo with him but he was rather disengaged (with me at least, and some others) but then was very engaged with people who told him they'd been to his restaurant and such, a couple people seemed to maybe know him 3rd or 4th hand (connections thru friends of friends kind of thing). Surprisingly he didn't seem bothered by being asked to sign bunches of albums...

I wouldn't say it was a "letdown" but frankly rather underwhelming.

Honestly--If I could meet any of them--Lindsey and John--I think you'd have the most "real" conversations. Stevie would be entertaining no doubt, and that would be fun...just because. But over a few beers--L&J

Thought I'd share this, which I saw on Instagram. Obviously take from it what you will.

mambrosiamusicIím curious @brianlarsenmusic will you be attending this tour sans Lindsey?
brianlarsenmusic@mambrosiamusic the short answer is that I donít know. The long answer is that I dearly love both Christine and Lindsey and have a personal relationship with both of them. Chris is the sweetest person Iíve ever met and she even went flowers to my wedding. Lindsey has been nothing but totally supportive of me and weíve gone out to some amazing lounges in Atlanta, Sydney, and beyond. Theyíre both incredible people that I love very much. Chris had nothing to do with whatís currently going on and Iíll leave it at that. Meeting Stevie was an interesting experience because of the way she manages to command all the attention in the room but I have no relationship with her. Met Mick many times and couldnít care less. John is nice but shy. But Lindsey and Chris have both been nothing shy of amazing and totally generous to me. So if I go, Iíll be doing it solely for Chris. That said, I feel a strong alliance towards Lindsey overall and am in close contact with his people about all this. Thatís the best clarity I can provide. But yes, if you have to be stranded on an island with two Fleetwood Mac members, make it Chris and Lindsey. They are the kindest people youíd ever want to meet and have treated me like their own family for years now. I donít know what else to say.

I saw that--It's interesting no doubt. I love Christine--really I do. But I am so torn given the current situation and how she hung Lindsey out post Buck/McVie Someone on another thread mentioned they see Christine/ John bailing after the US leg wraps up....honestly, given what Brian said, may not be a stretch. I don't see this tour having a global reach. I just don't
But for now....Beers with John and Lindsey
