I agree it is really odd to have so many things strike out. You need to send something to mgmt., if I read your story and worked for the band I'd hook you up. You deserve something for all your effort 1000!


Maybe send an email to Anthem  and explain what you sent and where you sent it, and tell them that everything you sent got returned to you unsigned.  Ask them why.

Maybe they will send you something to compensate.  :)

Tread lightly....I once emailed Anthem about this subject and got flamed in TRF for mentioning it.

Exactly....I think some people have made it their life's work to be the band's "protectors". I think they already have their own mommies and daddies, thank you. :lol:

I just read that they didn't sign anything at The Forum. So I guess people who sent their stuff there got them back unsigned?  Did anyone here get something signed from there?

Did anyone here call LA first to see if they would forward items to the band?
I did. Talked to someone there that said they would forward to the tour manager, but that was all they could guarantee. But, figured it was a longshot anyways since it was the last night. Phoenix also said that they forward when contacted via email, but that didn't work either. I think sometimes it is just chance based on who is working there at the time.

May do that. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yeah, I even put "Thanks Liam!" on the ends of that LA Forum Priority Mail box I sent. I tried everything I could think of..... :-)

Not sure why they did not sign anything. I tried to make it easy and simple with the packaging? No Tape no fuss. I mentioned in a previous post the ready post mailers from the post office were perfect for LPs and the return could easily fold.
I struck out on the back side of the tour as well. I tried my best to get snakes and arrows autographed. I sent it through an autograph agent. I sent it to vegas returned unsigned. I sent it to the forum and it was RTS. The album I sent to Phoenix was returned unsigned. I did get power windows back from Irvine.
Im really surprised they did not sign anything. I have 11 albums signed over past two tours

I think at some point, maybe they just called it a day, or put some limit on the number of things they'd sign at each show.  It's also possible they just didn't have time at every show to sign every item sent, especially if they got there later than usual, for example.  I wrestled with the decision this tour, and ultimately decided not to send anything, since they were gracious enough to hook me up last tour.  With so many fans getting the word that they have done this, I figured they might get overwhelmed with stuff, especially with everyone thinking, "this will probably be my last chance."  It may be that simple.  They had concerts to play; it wasn't a book signing tour.  At some point they have to sound check, eat and perform for 3 hours.  That said, it must be heartbreaking to try and try with no success after they signed so much for others here.  I was fully convinced my hemi booklet was lost forever, and it made me miserable seeing all the other signed things from the same show weeks before it finally limped into my mailbox, looking like it was brought back in the mouth of a great white shark.

Yes, I am sure they got a lot more requests this tour than any previous tours. I am so grateful for the two album covers they all signed for me and don't plan to send anything to them again should they decide to even do a small tour. Definitely don't want to be greedy. :)

Anyway, this is all the more reason to go out and get a frame for my Rolling Stone magazine.  I am really grateful that they all autographed it, and I got it back immediately after the show.  The Rush gods were on my side.  :lol: :cool: :angel:

I'm sure they were busy and wanted to see certain people and enjoy the potential last show as much as possible. Remember, the autographs are a free and generous perk, not part of the show.

It's nice that they're willing to do that.
