Hi!

Just saw a videao from the Bucharest show a few days ago. Seems there was a lady in the front row showing several banners to Jon.
They said

1. We Made It Front Row without passes, the only fair way.

2. The New Passes divide your fans. Stand as one undivided.

3. I gotta stand up for what I believe.

4. Sorry No Confetti, Captain Crash Has No Reason To Party Anymore

5. BJ fans are loyal.. or rich? Loyalty should be Priceless

6. I'm Shot Through The Heart and You're To Blame

After the 6. banner she earned Jons middle finger, heīs giving her the bird...

Seems this lady (Rebeca) is wellknown? Does anyone here knows her?
Why so many people seems to know her? Iīm just curious.
What do you think about that?

Hereīs the u tube link:

Yes she is well known to many fans and BJ staff.

Not going to touch this one at all, except to say I do not agree at all with Rebekka's opinions or actions...not only at this concert, but for a few weeks leading up to this show...and if she was my employee, I definitely would have fired her too!!!

Interesting, your post suggests she is a disgruntled ex-employee.

Yes, she was working for the fanclub and let go by Matt. Since then, she has said her say, many times. From what I have heard lately, she was causing problems for a long time. Until finally enough was enough and Matt let her go.

Tell me about it!! I like how he shrugs just after giving her the finger. For me, I would be like what?? and then awwwww. I think he is the only one that I would accept it from. You haven't lived until you have received Jon's salute!!

All the other banners, Jon gave a great reaction. He even laughed at some and she laughed back. There were 6 banners in total. This was at the very last banner and by this stage, I think Jon had enough with the banners.

As far as I'm concerned...she's just proving Matt was right in firing her. I'm sure she won't get any references from them :) I'm with Jon...ooloo <-giving finger (ha-ha-ha).

I believe there is a misunderstanding and some confusion.

This was the first tour ever that BSWJBJ has given official status to the list keepers and decided to "hire" a person to act as the liason. That person was Rebekka. It has now reverted to Nick a BSWJBJ staff member who travels with the tour.

On the LH tour, BSWJBJ did recognize the list/numbering system, but it was not done under official status. Rebekka did run the lineup/numbering lists at some previous shows on some previous tours, but it was done as a fan with no official status and not as an employee of BSWJBJ.

So yes she did "work" some previous shows on previous tours, but with offical status and not as an employee of BSWJBJ.

Yes, I think you are right. I know she was on the shows in LH tour, may be under official status.

For the most part, UK/EU shows are general admission on the field...with three different areas Diamond Circle, Gold Circle, General Admission.

BSWJBJ members who buy tickets directly from BSWJBJ get early access into the venues before people who are not fan club members.

The different groups form lineups to get into the venue. Some will camp out overnight...for more than one day. I think they started for today's show in Udine Italy three days ago.

In order to keep things fair and organized, they have a system in place. When people arrive, they sign their name on the list and get a number put on their hand. They then wait and enter the stadiums based on the number they are on the list.

There are restrictions set down as to how long they can leave the lineup for to get food/drink/bathroom/showers. If they are gone past the limits set they lose their place in line.

wow, thank you for your answers, itīs very interesting!!

But I do also not realy understand whats the problem of the lady...

ok, obviously she donīt like the system now with golden circle, diamont circle etc and she claims that the ticket prices are to high....

but she donīt need to go there if she donīt like it and she donīt need to pay a show if she thinks itīs to expensive... or does she think sheīs the speaker of other fans?

Wow i didn't notice that at all the first time i watched it.Rather funny to see Jon react like that,i guess it'd be awful to be in his position reading those banners whilst performing.He didn't look happy!!
