@purplegodess: Thank you! I will go do that right away. (Although I don't think I will win, I will buy the ticket anyways.) Edit: Oh, I did not fully understand the rules but now I do. I thought we could have any song cover. Oh well.

So, I was at Kalafina's concert last night in Tokyo. Wow. I'm so very pleased we are able to bring them to ACen this year, especially with the full band. It just wouldn't be the same without the whole group there. Everyone is in for an incredible treat.

Also got to meet the girls after the concert. They are so incredibly nice! I can't wait to play host to them back in Chicago!

Regarding autographs, the management would like to conduct the autograph session after the concert Friday night. What that most likely means is that we will have their autograph session back at the Hyatt (about an hour after the show) in some probably very large room that is also set up with Kalafina merchandise sales. No word yet on ways to guarantee an autograph, though.

There is not, and I do not expect there to be prior to the convention. Are you looking for something specific? I would guess that they would have albums, perhaps DVDs and BDs of concerts, and other goods like t-shirts and branded items. Please also note that all disks would be imports, so expect to pay higher prices for those than you would for American disks.

When we order Kalafina tickets as a group, will all of us get confirmation emails? Will there be something in our accounts confirming we have Kalafina tickets?

So if we purchase tickets, will they be linked directly to our badge name and only the badgeholder will be able to go? Or will we be able to transfer them to another ACen attendee after we receive them in case for some reason we can't go?

(first time where I'm going to attempt going to a concert at a con, trying to keep all my options open in case a schedule conflict w. something else rears its ugly head)

Sorry I didn't catch this earlier, the main person purchasing the ticket will get the confirmation email/invoice notice.

Tickets, like badges are non transferable and non refundable.

Will there be ticket stubs or will it be concert access linked to our badges with no stubs of any kind?

Curious because I frame posters and ticket stubs from concerts I've been too.

They are traditional concert tickets. The theatre is printing them.

Okay, so you promised no server problems, and yet I can't even get pages to load. Times out over and over again.

Where is the link to purchase? Is it even up yet? I thought you guys said you had this handled.

As of now... I'm not showing a link at the home page, musical guests, concerts, or otherwise. Server problems I can work with, but this stings

Hoping to hear something soon. I can imagine some people requested time away from work specifically for this, only to have the servers crash and no link be available.

For those of you still having issues, the link is in the events section on the left menu bar.

Also finally got tickets. If you choose a section and an HTTP error happens, it might be you have to many tickets for that section. I picked a different section and it went through, slowly. You're going to have to move fast in order to complete in five minutes, as slow as the server is.

Some people on Facebook are saying they already know where their seats are, bragging about VIP passes/autograph sessions, which I saw none of when I was in for tickets. Not sure if they're full of it or not.

Edit: Wrong site

My dad and I were both trying and he managed to secure section 103...at least we hope. He selected it, but there is no info about which seat is nor does it even say the section in his confirmation. We got tickets as soon as it refreshed and the link was available and they were purchased at 13:01. At this time it still says that section 103 is available...so I hope it's really not sold out and not just overbooking tickets or something. I would have thought that would be the first section to sell out. I'm really worried that something is going to go wrong...I don't know why but I have that feeling. I hope I'm wrong.

Secondly DAMN THAT WAS A STRESSFUL HOUR! I have to go to work soon so I had no idea if the website would be up by the time I have to leave for work. Gotta say as good as the communication and experience has been for my first ACen visit, I feel like the ball was really dropped there. I tried to warn that this was going to happen. I KNEW it would happen. Sure, this may not have happened during any other concerts so far...but those bands WEREN'T KALAFINA! I'm just glad its over and I hope nothing else goes wrong...now I need some alcohol to calm me down after that super stressful hour...whew...

Edit: Part of it wasn't all ACen's fault too because my brother was riding his bike to his midterm at college and his chain broke, so I had to go pick him up and drive him to school so he could make it on time for his midterm. I was super worried that I would miss on the best tickets during that time. Luckily me dad managed to register us through his account though.
