    Have you ever gotten something directly from the band/artist that you saw? Like drumsticks, guitar picks, set lists, a picture with the band, etc...

    I have gone to so many shows in my life so far and I've only gotten three things directly from a band/artist. In my case, all three were on the same night lol.

    On August 24th, 2008, I saw John Mayer w/ OneRepublic in Atlantic City, NJ. That night I got the lead singer of OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder, set list. Below is the set list:

    I also caught one of Ryan Tedder's and John Mayer's guitar picks when they were thrown. Ryan's was the black one, John's was the light blue one, as seen below:

    I have a huge collection of things from all the shows I've been to over the years (like PIT wristbands, promotional posters, even confetti that fell during a concert lol etc...), but these are the only things I got right from a band member.

    Anyone else have some luck at shows?

    When I went to Campus Invasion in 2008, I got a poster signed by all the acts and got to pose with members of The Spill Canvas, Kim from America's Next Top Model and Gabe from Cobra Starship.

    I will post pictures then.

    I've got Say Anythings setlist from the first time they played in Manchester and a guitar plec from Chad from NFG.

    I've also met both of the bands and got photos with each of them.

    Also, when Say Anything played in Liverpool with The Outline in Liverpool I met the guys from The Outline and got their CD signed.

    Other than that, I don't think I've gotten anything else. Apart from metting Gym Class Heroes. :)


    Edit: Chads plec is orange and has a picture of Ariel from The Little Mermaid on it. Guess he likes the red-heads :lol:

    I have met an extreme amount of bands. So I've got a lot of signatures. I've got photos with All Time Low, Blink 182, Sugarcult and Reel Big Fish. Possibly a few more but I can't remember.
    I caught Mike Herrera's from mxpx bass pick when I saw them. And I have like 8 picks from Tom and Mark from Blink 182 (I got to watch their show from the side of the stage and was allowed to go on stage afterwards and get them). Also when I met Shaun from Crowned King he gave me a badge thingy. Think that's it.
