1. Pictures & video taping will be allowed at all events. Try to avoid
getting in band member’s faces with flashes, though… for close ups,
use 1,000 speed or higher film and no flash. Distant flashes are fine,
however please be considerate others who are trying to enjoy the shows.

2. Under 21’s…. please call ahead and double-check each venue’s
policy, in case of any last minute changes or additions!

3. Peter will be glad to sign autographs, take pictures with you,
etc… as will all of the guys. But PLEASE, please remember… these
guys will be on a week long tour… they are going to be getting pretty
tired as it goes on. Just use a little common sense & courtesy when
approaching the guys. If they look like they are taking a few minutes
breather, let them have their quiet time. I promise that you will get
plenty of opportunities to talk with them without overwhelming them!

4. The guys will be bringing some of their merchandise with them on the
tour. T-shirts, and more will be available for purchase. Approximate
prices (cash only): shirts $15-20, ball caps $10, sun visors $7, CD’s
