PEARL JAM TO INTRODUCE NEW TICKET DRAWING SYSTEM
This was e-mailed to all Ten Club members yesterday. Maybe I’ll finally get to sit up close unlike when I saw Pearl Jam in 2006 and 2009:
To kick off the New Year, Ten Club would like to introduce you all to our improved fan club ticket drawing system. We are excited about this new website feature and would like to invite all members active as of Sunday, January 6th to login and test it.
For your convenience you have one full week from today to participate in this test. The drawing entry period opens today, Jan 7th and closes Mon, Jan 14 at 10am pacific.
For this test, we created two faux tours to mimic how a Pearl Jam or Eddie Vedder ticket drawing would normally run. Just like a real fan club ticket drawing you will be asked to enter your credit card info in the billing section. Your card will only be authorized $1 for each of the shows you enter; however it will not be charged. The ticket test ends on January 14th at 10am Pacific. After that time your credit card authorization will be canceled and the held funds will be released back.
At the bottom of this email you will find step-by-step written instructions on how to take part in the new ticket system test, as well as a link to a “How To…” video. And there’s more…
New ticket drawing features include:
- Ticket drawing runs directly on the PearlJam.com site. - Ability to enter the drawing for shows in priority order (1st choice, 2nd choice, 3rd choice etc.)
- “My Tickets” page where you can view the status of your drawing entry at any point during or after the drawing.
- Ability to cancel or edit your drawing entries before the deadline.
Win Some Rare Merch!
To make this fun, we have included some rare hard-to-find merchandise items that will be given away during the test drawing. Once the drawing entry period has ended, the new ticket system will randomly draw one name for each of the 8 shows entered. Of those 8 winners, each will receive one of the merchandise items listed below assigned at random.
Mad Season re-issue 10” on purple vinyl (1 winner)
PJ20 12” on colored vinyl (2 winners)
Patagonia Refugio Backpack (2 winners)
Benaroya Hall Box set (2 winners)
Backspacer 12” on white vinyl (1 winner)
