Meet and Greets on Rotting Christ’s North American Tour Will Be Free
Rotting Christ will not charge fans for meet and greets on the upcoming Devastation on the Nation tour of North America, which will also include Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant.
Says the band via social media:
“ROTTING CHRIST won’t accept any paying meet and greets in their upcoming USA-CANADA TOUR later this year. We will be there providing anything allowable to our fans because we are fans too!”
Accompanying this message was a band photo over which the words “FREE OF CHARGE — MEET & GREETS” have been placed.
Charging fans for meet and greets has become a regular occurrence in the modern music industry, with bands such as Tool charging fans as much as $500 for the honor.
What’s currently unclear is how Rotting Christ concertgoers will access these free meet and greets — no links to RSVP for any such event have been provided as of this writing. Maybe the band will just be hanging by their merch table before or after the show?
