I would like to ask for a favor- please stop asking and worrying about M&G. There is one thing to think about right now- do I want to purchase a ticket or do I want to purchase the bundle. And the one thing you can do to make sure you're pre-qualified for M&G is to purchase through pre-sale. Very simple. Also, please stop looking for further information. All events are still being built on the ticketing systems so there could be some incorrect and incomplete information floating around. All that you need to know right now is posted right here on the hustler club.
Now, if you ask me, the ticket + album, is the way to go. The price was factored only on the cost of the items contained in the bundle so it's way affordable. You won't get the album cheaper than you'll get it in this bundle... plus you'll get the october issue of AP, which you're going to want... and you get to attend the signing. The price is going to vary per date but the average price of a ticket is $22 and then the bundle will approximately be an additional $12 on top of the ticket price. Service fees are going to be the same no matter which you purchase.
Now, some answers to some frequently asked questions:
You are still eligible for M&G with the purchase of a regular ticket. And it doesn't matter where it's purchased, as long as it's purchased during pre-sale.
A regular ticket does not give you access to the signing.
The signing and the Hustler Meet & Greet are 2 separate events.
A regular ticket does not give you early entry or front of the line privileges.
The offers are the same no matter if your date is available via the hustler club ticketing page or hosted on ticketmaster.
The ticketing page is currently not linked properly for a reason. There is nothing to see there right now.
Now, on ticketmaster… the layout makes it seems confusing because they have to call the bundle a VIP package even though it isn't. So the VIP package is going to be the ticket + album bundle, the fan club pre-sale is going to be the regular event tickets. and the fan club bundle is the one thing that no one here needs to even pay attention to.
