      Which of the VIP packages include admission to the sound check?  Is it only the top level or the top two?  I've never been to a sound check and want to get there this time!  I'm not seeing any information about VIP packages yet on Paul's website or TicketMaster.  I want to be geared up and ready to go on July 10 at 10 AM!

        Hot Sound Package which last year cost $1600, and Front Row (sides only) which was $2100. There was a 2nd Row Package which for some reason did not include soundcheck. Anybody remember if it included anything else like the dinner and swag?

        VIP Gold and Silver do not include soundcheck.

          2nd row had merch only. No dinner or soundcheck.

            I wonder if one has to be a verfied fan to buy a VIP ticket?

              Probably. ☹️

                 I've gotten VIP tickets to Elton without getting a Verified Fan code so they appear to be separate things, but I don't know for sure how this one will be run.

                  Bob, do you have any idea?

                    Thanks, everyone, for the info!  Sounds like Hot Sound is the way to go.  Am I right that the sound check usually takes place at about 5 PM?  Or is earlier?

                      Don't know for certain but I think if you've got the cash to pay for VIP, you're in - no codes or fan verification required. Also, I don't think the VIP tickets sell out quite as quickly as the standard ones.

                        Yes, 5 or 5:30, but you MUST arrive no later than 4 pm to get checked in. Bring ticket and I.D. (Name must match - in other words, the person who bought the tickets must be there)   P.S. For Hot Sound, I have gotten either 3rd or 4th Row Center all 3 times.

                          Just a thought for any one considering shelling out big bucks for front row VIP or soundcheck tickets...You may want to find out if Paul is eliminating that small rising stage in front for this tour. In my opinion it's not worth paying that much even if you have the means if you are essentially 10 rows from the main stage in the first row.Of course if just being in for the soundcheck is your desire, go for it!

                            Good question, it doesn't specify on TM or on SLOTix.

                              Well for Verified Fan it is Ticketmaster: https://verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/paulmccartney

                              So...wouldn’t it probably be Ticketmaster for all? In all my Hot Sound and regular tickets with Macca since 2002, I have used TM. (Except 2017 which was AXS)

                                It is TM. I meant that SLOTix' site does not say anything about needing a Verified Fan code to purchase a package.

                                  Where can I find VIP ticket information for the UK dates?

                                    there: https://www.eventtravel.com/paul-mccartney-tickets-2018?agentCodeWeblink=AF2074

                                      does anyone know if TM limits the VIP packages to UK residents? It says that they mail the ticket package "in advance" - and I live in Asia but want to go to a UK show

                                        I think that everybody can have a vip package, i never buy one myself but it seems that they were a lot of foreigners in the first row seats reserved to those packages in the last concert where I went.

                                          thanks. yeah, i was just wondering if they will not ship ticket packages outside of the UK for some reason...

                                            Does anyone have recommendations on what to do if you want good seats but without soundcheck? Is it still worth getting VIP tickets?
