Thanks so much to everyone who has purchased tickets to the upcoming 8123 Tour in Brazil! We are really excited to be heading back!
As you may know, if you bought your tickets within the first week that they went on sale, you received guaranteed entry to our free meet & greet happening the day of each show.
Ticket sales were a lot higher than expected - and we are really excited to be able to meet so many of you! For that reason, security and the venue will be enforcing some guidelines to make the meet & greets run smoothly in a limited time frame and ensure everyone has a chance to participate.
We’ll have a photographer on site who will be taking photos during the meet & greet. The photos will be done in groups of ten and we’ll be posting them all online after the shows so you can download a copy of your photo. If you come with a group of friends, we will make sure you are in the same group! Individual photos (including on personal cameras and cell phones) will not be permitted due to time limitations.
We will not be able to sign personal items – however everyone who attends will receive a signed poster by the entire band! The poster will be exclusive and not available anywhere else.
We would love to be able to spend more time hanging with everyone, but to ensure that everybody gets a poster and photo we will be forced to make the meet & greet fairly quick.
It’s important to us as a band to be able to keep these meet & greets free – we understand you already pay for our music and your ticket to the show and we don’t think you should have to pay to meet us as well.
Additional details including times will be sent to you via the email address provided when you purchased your tickets. Thank you so much for your support! See you soon Brazil!
Hello South America! (And yes, we mean South America!) We wanted to reach out to clear up some issues regarding The 8123 Tour – South America.
Over the last two years, we have been attempting to come back to Brazil, Chile, and Argentina – as well as other countries we have yet to visit. As some of you know, it has been very difficult to find promoters that are interested in bringing us to your cities.
In January, we were contacted by a company based in Brazil (X-Live) who wanted to bring us over to play some shows. We worked out the details, confirmed the tour and began searching for more shows in Chile and Argentina. We had some early conversations with other promoters in different countries but after several months, we could not find anyone that was willing to confirm a show in either country.
We wanted to personally reach out and apologize for misleading everyone by calling this a “South American” tour. At the time of the announcement, we thought we would be announcing more shows throughout the rest of South America. However, that unfortunately did not happen.
We would like to make it very clear that we have not given up! We are already reaching out to more promoters and hope to be back in Argentina, Chile and several more South American countries as soon as possible.
Thank you all for supporting this band and we hope you can understand that we would love nothing more than to come and play in your country!
