Fan Meeting Pre-Event at the Hard Rock Cafe!

On Friday, October 26 at 7pm, a group of early birds will be meeting at the Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas for dinner. This dinner was organized as an extra event in addition to the main Fan Meeting on October 27th. Each person in our group will be responsible to pay for their own meal and drinks. We have reserved dining space for our group and have made special arrangements with the sales staff to have some pretty awesome promotions for our group! Check it out:

-There will be a re-vamped Hard Rock Café menu designed especially for our group.
-The bartenders are going to create a special beverage for our group, with a-ha as the "theme" (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)! This drink will be available throughout the weekend at a special price just for us.
-We will be allowed to post signs or posters in our section of the restaurant to let other diners know who we are and that we came to Vegas to PARTY!
-We have also arranged to have one of the band member's autographed guitar (currently in HRC storage collecting dust--the truth hurts sometimes!) shipped to the Vegas property so that we can all gaze in awe.

And last, but not least;

We have arranged to have at least four a-ha songs play while we are at the restaurant! These songs will be digitally programmed into their play list for the evening. Based on survey responses from a-ha.com, the four songs that will be played are The Sun Always Shines on TV, Minor Earth, Major Sky, I've been Losing You and Velvet. Up to 300 other people will hear these songs (patrons, wait staff, visitors, etc.)!! The wait staff will be informed of our event ahead of time and told about the a-ha songs, so that they can answer any questions they may be asked by other patrons.

Thanks again for your time! Hope to see you there...
