i think you have to give it another year to see if things get better, without doubt they have struggled this year, i got all the tickets for the shows ive wanted, maybe i would have even without the links , still think the white T shirt sucks and 7+ months and waiting for the 7" is a bummer, I dont want to loose my number 11 membership so i will re-new and hope for better next year.

Honestly, if they up the perks then i'd probably join. As others pointed out, the t-shirt was ugly and they're still waiting on the 7". I don't exactly consider the 45 RPM club print a perk when you had to drop another $30 or whatever it costs. As for tickets, unless they go back to playing clubs, there really is no reason to join. I got 2 tickets to the Stone Pony show for $15/piece on stubhub and I assume the pier 26 show will also drop below face since it hasn't sold out on ticketmaster. Also, instead of having fans spam their friends on social media sites to get tickets, they should set aside however many they have to give away and just randomly select club members. It's kind of amazing how bad they messed up the fan club.

I agree with this. It's the first year, there are bound to be f*ck-ups. And yeah I'm number 6 so I definitely don't want to lose my number either! I mean they're likely at best breaking even with cost of the club so it's not like they can just give us a bunch more stuff but, I hope in the future they use things like the red bull thing back in march and just make it first come first serve for the club or let small groups into sound check occasionally. Basically give us an advantage with stuff they were gonna do anyway so it's not costing them money.

Exactly. More perks that don't cost anything would be nice.

Does the band run the fan club or do the knuckleheads at Infinite Merch run it? It seems like the Infinite Merch guys have to much shit on their plates to also do this fan club thing properly. And if the band is at the helm then they really screwed the pooch. Maybe this fan club thing should have been put on hold until the time came to do it right. Oh well.

I found that in the UK at least there where a LOT of presales, I got tickets on Live nation two days before the normal sale and I think there was a seetickets presale if your signed to thier mailing list, I don't want to give up the membership...you never know it may be great if they sort it out!
Iv never had an issue getting tickets so I am just waiting for the perks to actually happen (7") At the moment it has not been worth it, but it is the 1st year so I am gonig to give it a chance Smile

still waiting patiently. this fan club must be run by the government given how inefficient it has been. that's my only guess.

I think the whole thing has been really lame. Several intersting UK events had no fan club provision. In fact, since the switch to Universal everything has been a bit lame and samey, as if nobody needs to try that hard anymore.

The ticket part of the club is a joke. The band is in their decline, they are only going to play smaller shows.

I was only in the club for the 7" (never had trouble getting tix for their shows before). You can pay $20 just for the pre-sale bonuses or whatever, but seriously there is no point. There will be no problem getting tickets for their shows this year.

Well honestly did anyone of you believe they can even finance the fanclub package with only $25? Only the shipping costs probably more and they also have to produce the vinyl and the shirt. And pay the people who handle the fanclub, or El Jefe who did the Vinyl design etc. etc.

So $40 is way more realistic for what they offer.
