    I bought tickets for show in Helsinki 16.4. I just don't understand how are they going to delivery the tickets? The email I got was confusing and what I'd like to know is that is the ticket going to come on post or should I pick it from somewhere? I should be on the soundcheckparty group and I just don't understand anything about this. Where is my ticket?

    PLEASE HELP the show is on 2weeks and I need to know what should I doD:

oh and you know what? seb tweeted my day after the show! the tweet was "I remember you girl !" and then Pierre tweeted me "cool photo" when I tweeted photo of that show! omg I nearly fainted

yes they definitely are! I asked Pierre if I can hug him, he was like "sure" and smiled at me. I rushed to him and hugged as hard as I could, he was like "ooouch" and started laughing♥ omgomgog I freaked out and started crying.... I can imagine it's hard to take me serious when I get over-emotional, means very often XD . but I just have seen many dreams about SP and even though my dreams are pretty wild I was _never able to imagine him to smile&laugh&hug me. like seriously. and to be honest it was unbelievable to see them really, know it sounds stupid but before that I kinda had a feeling that they aren't real, I mean ofc I knew they were, but if you know what I'm talking about. it felt like I was just dreaming until they actually were in front of me and I got to hug them!

I promise next time I'll come to say hi! I guess it was because of language (you don't speak Finnish do you?), I'm really not good at English and I'm always scared that when I open my mouth I just don't find the words and then other people stare at me like ".....excuse me?" :D and I was so nervous anyway that even speaking Finnish was hard XD but next time I'll definitely say hi

awwww I'm really glad to hear you had such a great meeting with them. They really are the sweetest guys ever.
I had a great time, too. Always good to see them :)
No, I didn't see you :( No need to be shy, to contrary belief I'm actually really nice ;) next time just come and say hello :D

I had a great time! I felt sorry too because we had so little time, but for me it was the first touch with simple plan, so it felt the biggest deal in the world just to be with them like 10minutes. I got signatures for my t-shirt from all of them, I got pictures with Pierre, Seb, Chuck and David (picture is really fuzzy but still) and I got to hug all of them except Jeff! It was the best day of my life♥ omg I cried so much, I can't wait to get them back here

How was it for you? I saw you at the venue but I was too shy to come around and say hi, and you seemed that you didn't notice me so:)

XXX_007's picture

So, did you have a great time?
I feel kinda sorry for you that they were running so late and it wasn't possible anymore to do soundcheck but at least you did get to meet them :) how was it for you?

llisa's picture

okay, thank you so much♥, now I promise (to try...) not to worry anymore. I'm TERRIBLE with this I know I'm sorry and I'd really love to focus on being excited but this is who I am when I'm waiting for something important..... I just can't be excited without worrying at the same time.

But yes, now I'll try to sleep. I'll have to imagine that tomorrow is just a regular monday.....how is that even possible.

XXX_007's picture

No, you absolutely don't have to worry! Please trust me with this, okay? :)
NO ONE that pre-ordered has their ticket yet. So there are a bunch of other people (including myself) that will have to get it at the box office. Maybe it's not open before soundcheck but you will get in anyway and then later on go get your ticket. Please believe me when I say that everything will work out just fine. No more worries, excitement only!!! :D

llisa's picture

Hey, you said that I won't need ticket for soundcheck but the email I got says that I need it? D: Should I get worried again or what? Is it possible that the box office doesn't open for the soundcheck and I can't get in 'cause I don't have my ticket?

HELP. AGAIN.

XXX_007's picture

Yeah, you have to be a SPC member for that and had to buy pre-sale tickets/fill out a form to be able to attend.

TheCarihuela's picture

Have to jump in here... oh. You really have to be SPC member to get to the soundcheck party? :S

XXX_007's picture

Hey!
Really happy for you that you finally get to see them :) That it's your first show ever makes the whole thing even more special.

Awesome! I heard that about another show, too. So I guess it's really save to say we'll be going to soundcheck :D

haha you probably won't get much sleep. But that's ok...you'll still be full of energy for sure.
Just a bit over a week left!!!

llisa's picture

Yey! OMG IM SO EXCITED!

Yep I haven't been at any shows ever, not SP shows but not even any other 'cause I haven't had any other fav band since I met SP and with my allowance I haven't even been able to travel all around Finland to see bands I'm not even interested. SP coming to Finland now, when I'm able to go and see it too, is something I've been waiting for YEARS and now it's really happening.......ohmy I'm going to cry.

Yes I think you're coming if you bought your ticket through pre-sale, because that SPC dude, Jill was her name I think, emailed me about my question and said that everybody who bought ticket through pre-sale are going to get there(: so it's pretty sure that we both are, but still I can't wait they to release the final list 'cause that will make this even more true

HOW CAN I SLEEP THE NIGHT BEFORE THE SHOW♥

XXX_007's picture

Nope, not gonna call anywhere or do anything at all. I've been to a few shows where I had bought pre-sale tickets and everything worked out.

It's your first show? I see how that can make you nervous and you wanna be sure everything will be perfect :) Trust me, it will be fine and I'm glad that I can help.

I guess I will have soundcheck, too. They haven't released the names yet but I don't think there are too many finnish SPC members?

So now, stop worrying and just be excited :D I'll see you there!

llisa's picture

Yeah I'm terrible at worrying! When something is really important to me, MORE than really important, I can't help always feeling that everything goes wrong.

Oh you have no idea how much better you made me feel with this! So you aren't going to take calls anywhere or anything, just get there and pick up the ticket and trust it'll be there? Maybe that's the way I'll handle this too. OMG what a relief that you'll be there too, so that I'm not the only one and alone with this if you know what I mean! My first concert ever, stressing my ass ofXD

If we'll see that would be awesome (and knowing that you're there is a big relief what comes to this ticket thing). Are you going to be at the soundcheck party? If so, we'll meet there:)

Uhm, usually the name on the list is the one from the SPCrew member who bought it. I THINK it should be your name since it was bought through your SPC account (even though it's your dad's credit card) but I'm not sure. But once you get the email it should be fine. I didn't mean for you to worry, I'm sure everything will work out just fine :)
The box office is definitely at the venue! AA doesn't send emails for that...tickets will be there believe me :)
I tell you what. I'll be at that show too...if you want see if you can find me and I'll try and help you get the ticket seeing I will have to get mine too :)

llisa's picture

My ticket is on my dad's name. Is that a problem? He will pick the ticket with his ID picture but he will not be on the venue. So when the guy comes with a list of names, is it the name of the buyer of the ticket (=my dad) or what? Omg now I'm getting so worried about this, where do they take those names? Does it help that I will have the soundcheckparty email + SPC pass with me?

I phoned to The Circus (arena where the concert is) but they said that they don't know anything about those tickets and there will maybe be someone to give them to us but they don't know. And that I should contact AA but I have tried and they dont answer my email. So the box office (I know already how stupid this sounds like but I'm new to this and I don't understand anything), where it actually is? In front of the doors? In the same area as the arena, or can it be far away like in other street? I'm so scared that I can't find the tickets/they don't have them and I cant entryD:

How can I make sure that the tickets absolutely sure even are there? Does AA send some sort of email about this later or do I just have to hope for the best?

XXX_007's picture

Alright :)
It all really depends on when the box office opens. If it is open already whenever you get there (morning / afternoon) just go and pick your ticket up already...should it open just before venue doors open that night it will go something like this:
When you get to the venue you will form a seperate line of SPCrew members. Before soundcheck someone will come to you with a list of names. Everyone on that list will be granted access to soundcheck. Security will bring you inside, the guys will play a few songs then will come down for pictures. After that, depending on the venue people, you will either have to go back outside or you can stay inside. Then once box office is opened collect your ticket (like everyone else will have to) and wait till you will be let in for early entry :)
I hope I could help. Let me know if it wasn't clear enough and I'll try to explain it better. :)

So actually what I have to do is just pick the ticket from the box office and then what? Can I pick it up couple hours before the show? Do I have to show it to someone before getting in to arena or what? sorry I'm so stupid but this is new for me.

Could you explain the whole thing step by step? I'd be SO thankful.

As far as I remember it was pick up for the Helsinki show. You won't need the ticket for soundcheck yet but before early entry you and everybody else will have to get the ticket from the box office.
