knowing that, i totally did not understand the purpose of spending $2k in cd's to get to the first few positions in each city?

maybe first if you think attending the meet and greet is worth this? Even then, for having seen some of the meet and greets in the extras of the dvd's, we are talking fans lining up and the boys shaking their hand and say hi one by one, then leave. it is not like you get to hang out with them for any significant amount of time.


I felt pretty silly too and got mad several times at the process. I pretty much knew even by the slightest chance that I made it to #1 that I wouldn't be given a great deal of time to meet them. I'm ok with that. It has been a life long dream of mine, so even if its a smile and a handshake my dream will have come true :)

I think it's pretty awesome. Looking way forward to hearing about it/seeing pics from people.

Agreed. Good for you! Everyone's idea about what is acceptable in a 'meet and greet' and how much something is worth is subjective. I'll be looking from the outside waiting to hear all about it from you lucky ones! :)
As it happens, it happens here in this house...

Made it to #1 for my city, and received a message 10 days ago from Strobe Labs that said "Information will be coming your way in the next few days about details about your exclusive meet and greet with the band."

Haven't heard a peep from them since, and they haven't responded to a couple of emails I've sent them asking for information. Anyone else getting nervous about this whole thing? I'll be so disappointed, after all the work that went into getting to #1, if the meet and greet doesn't happen.

OMG you bought 93 cd's???? :eek: That's is madness!!! I felt silly for buying four albums! :D
What on earth are you going to do with 93 cd's? Congrats for winnng, though!

I have to wait until next week :( I've been listening to it on Spotify. I will have to take a pic with all of the cds. Haha :D

So I got an email from Strobe today(my husband and I have been on their asses). They said..."Congrats on getting #1, Depeche Mode will be contacting those who qualified for the meet and greet in due time, don't worry.- Thank you for your patience and congrats again!"


Not sure about all of this. I know I spent a SHIT ton of money to get to this point so I don't want to be effed around :(

I still haven't heard anything. This is so frustrating.

I really hope that they do the meet and greet for at least 20 on the list, a lot of people tried hard to be number 1, and i think as fans that would be a great reward.
