I have Oct 13 VIP ticket, but NO emails from PPark!

Like many of you, I bought my Paisley Park VIP ticket for October 13 to coincide with the tribute concert. I bought a roundtrip flight from Boston and 2 nights hotel. The last email I got from Paisley Park was about the disappointing City Counsel vote and to stay tuned.

I later read about the 3 day permits online, which included Oct 14 tour. I've gotten no email from PP about this. So I emailed them yesterday afternoon, kindly requesting to be placed in a Oct 14 tour (if that was my only option) before my flight departs that night for home. As of tonight I've received no reply.

I'm sure they're scrambling - but come on. So far they've taken my money and provided no word about reschudeling or refund.

Am I alone here?

I hope you are able to go on that day the Oct 14. I thought you can just go any of the three days I didnt know you have to be put on a list. I havent heard anyone else having issues of having a hard time with the upcoming tours.

there are many others who are having the same problem and no one is getting any response.

here's contact information for the company that is managing Paisley Park, maybe contact them with questions about rescheduling:

My ticket was for 7th, when they sent me an email with a code to buy another ticket , the 14 th was no longer available. Sorry. I can't believe I'm not going cry

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

that's terrible, hang in there. maybe the management company is thinking they will be able to honor tickets after all? i heard a rumor that the City Council might grant approval as early as next week, but that was a rumor.

i am hoping these snafus won't reflect badly on Prince, his legacy, and the long-term viability of the museum project

There was a notice with a link and code telling people that there will be refunds. The code was to repurchase new tickets on one of the 3 selected dates. Oct 6, 8 or 14th. First come, First serve basis.

I too had VIP tickets for Oct 13th. I will receive a refund. I had to repurchase but all I could get were general admission which makes me so mad. The VIP tickets were sold out in a matter of 5 minutes. It also annoys me that only 5 people were in the 9 am VIP schedule. Anyway, I managed to snag 9:30 am GA tickets for Oct 14th. My flight departs 12:40pm, same day, so,I hope they are on time.

They also said there will be future dates.
[Edited 10/6/16 20:14pm]

They also said refunds will take 5 to 7 days, so check your bank or credit card statements.

Update: After getting no reply to my first email from PP, I emailed them again this morning and finally received a reply with a special link to rebook a tour. THANK GOD I was able to at least buy a GA tour on October 14 at 3:30pm, but the VIP tix were sold out. I feel very angry about how this was handled. The tour ends at 4:40pm and I will literally have to RACE to the airport during Friday rush hour to catch my 7:30pm flight home. I feel very sad that I won't be allowed to have a photo taken of myself inside Paisley Park as I originally would have since I bought a VIP ticket on the 13th. But I guess I have to accept reality, and adjust my mindset.
