i just added amanda's quote to the first post in this thread,
tweaked,
and reordered it some

no real new info

see
will there be a signing ? (aka meet-n-greet)

Len, i think the P.S bit added shouldn't have the first not in bold and should be if you are a first timer. Other than that, amazing post.

thanks!

in the ps:

there are two "if you are NOT a first timer ..."
then a "if you are a first timer ..."
but i'll make that larger

Thank you to Len for the write up, and to Amanda and Beth for there helpful points as well, but now I have a question. I understand completely that there will most likely be lots(hundreds?) of fans hoping to meet/have something signed, myself being one of them. Not to sound too terribly selfish, but is there any way to assure someone gets the chance to do so?

I am currently working on some tattoo pieces, some of you may have seen my finger tattoo's on twitter(Amanda actually mentioned me!!! I was soo happy to see that!!). Anyway, the fingers are just a start to what the full design is that I have in mind. Thing is, in my head I have this planned out with Brian's signature on top of my right hand, and Amanda's on my left, so I really want to try to assure that I can get this done at the Chicago show, but I'm really concerned about getting lost in the crowd and not getting the chance. Any suggestions other than what has already been mentioned?

seriously....if there be a signing Amanda and Brian will pay attention to each and every one of you in whatever unique way you present yourselves! the tattoos may possibly justify a "Hot" and a hug!

I know both Amanda and Brian want to sign, but with the size of these venues it can be very difficult.  I suspect there will be relatively few signings on this tour.  As a solo artist Amanda had the luxury of playing to relatively small audiences (usually 400 people or less) so meet and greets were much more manageable.  I do hope that the band will be able to meet some of you on tour, but I wanted to let you know that it might not happen so that if it doesn't you're not blindsided in the moment.

Don't worry, friend!  I think you were offering thoughtful, moderate encouragement, not creating false hopes. :)

I understand this, but I wrote Brian and Amanda a letter and I really want to get it to them.
If I give it to one of the merch people, do you think it will end up in their hands?
I'm going to the Kentucky show, if that helps.

again i can only answer from experience....but if handed to someone with integrity, it will indeed end up in the right hands and read....I have personally delivered several such notes from fans to Amanda in the past...not that i will be there as I live in the UK

For most of the shows, the best person to give things like that to is the merch girl Casey when she isn't busy. In Lexington, though, Amanda's assistant Superkate will be there, so you can give it to her. she's six feet tall and has long black dreadlocks--- you can't miss her.

Thank you!
I'm disappointed about not being able to meet them, but it's good to know that someone can get my letter to The Dolls.
It means a lot to me that they read it.
