Last Saturday I went to see Deadmau5 for the Cube v3 tour. I bought a ticket in advance but it was a regular GA ticket. I really wanted the VIP meet & greet ticket but I didn’t have the money at the time and they sold out fast. I joined the Deadmau5 forum and found someone willing to sell one to me. I was pretty ecstatic. The VIP ticket included priority entry into the venue, first access to merchandise, a tour on stage to see the cube up close and personal, an autograph and picture with Deadmau5, and access to the pit. I gave my GA ticket to someone but I had also bought a pit ticket because I didn’t think I’d be able to get a VIP ticket. I tried to sell it but nobody bought it. Since the VIP ticket was expensive, I started a GoFundMe and raised $100 from other fans. I really appreciated everyone’s generosity and kindness.
Anyway, I bought a tour shirt, pin and glow ears. After the tour on stage, I was waiting to do the meet & greet. I was nervous and had a drink to calm me down a little. While waiting in line to meet him, I got beer spilled all over me which I wasn’t happy about. My socks and shoes were soaked. I didn’t have anything to dry off with so I just dealt with it. I was next in line to meet him. He was nice and pretty cool. There wasn’t much time to talk but I told him I’ve been a fan for around 10 years and asked how that was going for me and asked me where I was from, I told him I’m from here now but am originally from Pennsylvania. He said something about the heat here and I said I preferred the heat over the cold. He signed my VIP pass and we took a quick picture. I thanked him and went through the doors to the pit area for the show. It was of course awesome. It was a great night and I’m glad I got to have this experience. Yesterday I got the picture with him and I look pretty terrible because of all the weight gain from medications. Oh well. I’m trying to focus on the experience and how fun it all was. I posted my signed lanyard on the forum and Deadmau5 himself commented saying hi again which was pretty cool.
Here are some pictures I took:
