return to the 'burgh

While checking my e-mail during my lunch break, I discovered a most surprising message from the Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls:
The Asylum Tour, Fall 2010: "The Door," On Sale Now!

Dearest Plague Rats, all N. American Fall 2010 tour dates will go on sale at 3 PM local time on the 21st of July. These will go fast, so stake your claim HERE!!! Don't miss the show PlayBoy touted, and Kerrang Magazine gave 5 stars!

The first venue on the bill? Mr. Small's Theater in Millvale, PA. I was shocked that Emilie Autumn had decided to come back to Pittsburgh for a show- her show was by no means sold out the last time. When MCR didn't sell out a show in Pittsburgh and the band got food poisoning two venues before they hit the 'burgh, they canceled their Pittsburgh date and rescheduled the venue before they were supposed to go to the Steel City for the day that they were supposed to be in Pittsburgh.

And yet here was the proof that, despite less than perfect attendance at her last gig at Mr. Small's, EA will not abandon her PR following in the 'burgh to try something that may be more profitable.

I jumped on my cell phone, called up a friend, and asked him to order two tickets for the show at 3 p.m. on the dot, as I was still at work and I didn't think the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania would appreciate my ordering tickets to a Victorian industrial burlesque show on their computer. He very kindly ordered the VIP package.

A Musical Tea Party with EA

Along with the tour dates above, we are again pleased to make Asylum VIP packages available! For a very small number of people per show, EA is offering what is most definitely the most amazing fan experience yet!

For the price of $75, thirty-five people per show date will have the opportunity to purchase the Asylum VIP Package, elevating you to Official Asylum Inmate status. Inmates will receive:

» 1 concert ticket

» 1 hand-signed and numbered limited edition lithograph art print of EA's "Plague Rat" painting

» 1 admission to a pre-show private "Inmates Only" classical violin concert featuring twenty minutes of live music by Bach and other great composers performed for you by EA

» 1 "Meet & Greet" session with EA, including autograph signing and photo opportunity

» 1 commemorative "Asylum Inmate" concert laminate

» Be the first to try a hot cup of the new Asylum Tea as you listen to the violin performance (feel free to bring your own teacup)

» Permission to remain inside the venue after the VIP session, insuring your prime spot at the front of the stage
So guess who now has the chance to have tea with the musician who inspired this blog?


My little sister Jordan will be attending as well. Her reaction to the news was similar to the one I had when I first found out EA would perform at Mr. Small's last December.
