Amanda said they were doing the signing in Lexington because they had never played there before.

They didn't do a signing in St. Louis last night though. Although, I did talk to Brian some after the show by the tour bus.

Ah, meeting them was great.
I gave them my letter and they let me get pictures.
And I got my poster and CD signed.

They did a real short meet in the alley by the Vic in Chicago. Amanda said she was exhausted and didn't have alot of time. Amazing show!! A night I will never forget!

I kinda got the feeling they were planning a second encore (house-lights stayed off when they left the stage.... Amanda came out a minute later with a couple of announcements) but when they finished encore#1, half the audience bolted for the doors..... So they probably had an unexpected 5-10 minutes to kill....

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

Yeah I was kinda thinkin that too. Then standing in the lobby security said they would not be doing a signing and I was crushed, but decided to hang out outside for a bit and did happen to catch both of them outside. Amanda recognized my finger tattoo's and said "It's you!!!" as she grabbed me and gave me a kiss. I was in heaven. The she signed my hand and I got Brian to sign the other one, and they were both tattoo'd on by the end of the night.

I was excited in hopes of getting something signed after the show as well.  I waited in that long ass merch line for what seemed like 30 minutes and was hoping that Amanda and Brian would magically appear at the table and sign things.  I bought my $80 in merch and waded into the only direction possible, out of the venue.  I was crushed, thinking that I had no chance at getting an autograph.  Outside the venue I overheard someone say "Hey, look at those hardcore fans waiting by the alley, heh" so I proceeded to join the alley group to chat and wait it out :P

it has been really helpful reading this topic, and thank you to all who contributed to it. i wanted to ask again though in fear of things being different now that Amanda is touring different venues with the GTO. i've never seen her live (even though i had planned to two times in the past - fingers crossed this will be the lucky time!) and i was wondering if it'd be better to wait outside the venue really early when she probably will be arriving for her soundcheck. this is the way i've met many of my idols in the past. anyone knows how many hours before the show does amanda do her soundcheck? i wouldn't want to monopolise her time just a picture would do for me.

maybe someone can post their experiences here after the european tour begins in october. looking forward to any feedback though

btw, i'm travelling from greece to austria for the Nov 5th show.

Also very interested in anybody's experiences. I am penny-pinching so I can take girlfriend to the Toronto show as an anniversary present. Hundreds of miles and dollars will be travelled and spent (though Greece-to-Austria person before me has a better story). The show itself will be awesome, but getting to her meet Amanda and the band would be a stunning experience.

I've been to 3 GTO shows (two in the Europe tour last year, and the London show in June), and managed to meet her and the band every time, but not always organised. The UK shows last August/September (apart from London, due to the venue), she did organised meet and greets. She didn't come out in London but we managed to quickly say hi and be hugged and kissed by the tourbus before she left. The show in June this year, the venue told everyone to leave pretty much straight away, so we did, but about 10 minutes later Amanda jut popped out the front, spent about 20-30 minutes with the 15-20 people that were around, and then proceeded to party on the rooftop.

I guess it's mostly down to the venue and whether they're strict with kicking people out or not.

As for soundcheck, last year's London show she turned up about 2pm-ish? but this year it was probably about 4 or 5 I think. However, she had been doing press all day, and the soundcheck ended up running over, cos she was late. But whether she stays to chat when she turns up will depend on how much time she has, and also how many people are around.

I guess my best advice is to just go for it. Turn up early. If you get to meet Amanda and the band, then great. If you don't, then at least you'll be at the front of the queue and have an awesome spot :3 and then hang around afterwards - if she doesn't have time to stay, then c'est la vie, but you'll never know unless you try ;)

Hope this is helpful in some way!

it helps in every way. i will try to be there as early as i can hoping for the best, but at this point even making it to the show will be great for me.

i need 2 merge this in. -len

for Amanda this asymmetry is not exhausting, but invigorating.

Amanda has no fans.  just many friends.

contact with her is a gift she cherishes.
making it more from yourself is icing on that gift.
though she appreciates that icing.
Amanda much prefer the gift of yourself to anything physical. 
she often tours with minimal luggage & doesn't have space for added stuff.

talking substantially about music, especially clueing her into a new group she hasn't heard of is appreciated.  one of her best friends started this way.

as is discussing how to mother.  e.g. how it's different in your state or country.

if you can, treat her as you would an interesting stranger, you want to know better.
