Yeah this irks me.
Last UK tour. I met them in Glasgow, then the second time, in Manchester the security made all the fans form a line. My friend and I decided to go right to the back as we had already met them so was in no rush.
Then after Birmingham, the guys tour bus was behind venue gates. My group of friends and I decided that we weren’t even going to try and meet them because we had a MOE earlier in the day.
The fans by the gate were acting like it was 1997 again :/
When the guys finally came out some fans at the front got stuff signed and photos. But instead of moving along. They told the people behind to send their stuff forward and they would get it signed for them.
Thus taking away another persons chance to meet them. It’s really really selfish.
