Here's my run down of VIP Packages (I got Reflection Section VIP in Montreal)

A week before the show I received an e-mai lwith instructins as to where to go and at what time. I was told to go to a certain entrance at 4:15 pm to check-in and should show up no later than 5:30 pm or else it would be closed. Shortly after I received an e-mail from UPS saying a shipment was on my way and it would arrive the day after the concert (annoying, but w.e).

So we showed up at the venue at 4 pm and there was already a huge line for VIP Reflection Section (probably 35 people in front of me). In total there were 71 people with this package. They started checking us in at 4:20 and were told to go upstairs after check in and wait in another line. You had to make sure to have ID since they had a "VIP list" and were checking off names. If you didn't have ID you couldn't get in. So make sure if it's under your dads name or something he is physically there to show ID or else you can't get in!!!! This was the case for one person in line... their dad had bought the tickets, used his name for information, but wasn't present to let his daughters in so they got kicked out and were just in normal line (bye bye 300$).

So I got checked in and given a braclet by around 4:45 and went upstairs to wait. There we waited till about 5:55 pm (lots of waiting) in that other line still outside the actual venue. They then guided us down to the section where everyone in front of us ran to the tip (which I didn't care about, I wanted main stage though that was a mistake lol).

Even with 71 people in VIP it wasn't super packed, there was still room around the main stage for people to stand right against. Even people with normal GA got good standing areas.

The merch came the next day, as scheduled by UPS. It included a hand numbered poster with the date and venue of the concert I attended, a ROAR towel, a random lanyard, Prism tote bag, and a small picture book (not tour book).

Hope this helped some people!

I had the Reflection Section VIP package for the Ottawa show. I also received an email with instructions for check in about a week before. And I also received my package the day after the show (yes, annoying - would've liked to receive it beforehand).

The only reason I got the VIP package is because I wanted tickets in the RS and I wasn't able to get regular RS tickets when they first went on sale.

I didn't end up doing the early check in. I might have done it had it in included the preshow party but couldn't be bothered waiting 5 hours until Katy came on - I'm not as young as I used to be :) I actually got to the venue at 7:30-8pm, right when Capital Cities was starting. My plan was to go to the RS just as they were finishing their set, hoping that some people would need to leave to go to the bathroom or get food. I ended up right at the tip of the main stage. There was only one person in front of me, so I was in the second row.

The RS was way more crowded during this tour than the GA during the California Dreams tour in 2011 which was disappointing, but understandable since she has gotten bigger since then. Oh yeah and my show was sold out (16,200 people).

The Australian VIP packs have food and drink vouchers in them. i dont even want to use them. I'm not going to move tbh. like it might be the one show I get to the tip. Australians are so competitive when it comes to people getting to the barrier. I dont want to move, therefor I'm not using my vouchers. haha

Stupid me only just realised...All this time I've been thinking, "cool, won't have to buy a tourbook because it's included in my VIP package"..... Now that I've re-read it, it says tour PHOTOBOOK, not programme. Blah. Oh well, shouldn't complain I guess :dreamboat:

EE in Barcelona includes a tote bag, tour book (don't know if the little one or the big one) poster of the show you're attending, a lanyard and a t-shirt/towel. that's the information Ticketmaster gave me about the VIP. All the VIP tickets include merch

EE in Hamburg has some stuff too. It has the dated lithograph... thingy... i think. i wanted something with my bday on it, so I made sure it came with something special when i got early entry... and it did. =P can't remember exactly.

btw guys if anyone want some VIP merch there are tones on ebay. I've seen Chicago shows up there... I know they have dates, but they're going for reasonable prices. one was $20. just in case anyone is interested.
