    So I went to the meet & greet in Melbourne tonight and was not satisfied at all.
    First they tell you to get there no later than 6pm the have you sitting there till 7:40 when they take you to meet Nicki but we were waiting for another hour now being 8:40 and keep in mind that she is meant to be on stage at 8:30 because of this we didn't get an autograph all we got was a photo which you had to get taken with someone else and then they hurried you on out the door straight away so all up we got about 20 seconds with her.
    For $250 I wouldn't waste my money. I could've just waited at the gate and got a photo and probably an autograph.

    Also they state that you will get early entry in to the venue and because we had floor tickets we thought that would be great as we could get up the front but we ended up at the back because everyone was already in the stadium.

    I was so excited to meet Nicki but everything just felt rushed once that time actually came.
    I must say that the concert was amazing as I knew it would be

    Wow, that sounds like a terrible experience, that really sucks. You should bring up a complaint or something with Grnd Ctrl. I would not be happy with that. I've heard other people with bad M&G experiences which I think is awful because you are paying them a buttload of money!!

    Also, I really want to be front row, so that really sucks!! I think M&Gs are better when they are done after the show unfortunately...it really sucks when these people don't even take the fans who are paying the $$$ into account :/

    Wow, very disappointing. Did you get to take a picture with your own camera or do they take it for you and send it to you later?

    Yeah it was terrible. I spoke to a lot of the people from the meet & greet and they're going to complain to ground ctrl. I believe that if your running late then you either move it till after the show or make more time as we know from her twitter that she arrived at the arena at 4pm.
    I can only blame the people running it as they had no clue what was going on.

    The head of security said we had to put our phones away & cameras away, that we weren't allowed to hug her. Once we got the photo they then told you to move on.

    WILL DEFINITELY BE COMPLAINING TO GROUNDCTRL!!!!

    Yeah I totally would! So you didn't even hug her? Was your photo taken by a photographer? I hope the M&Gs aren't that disorganised at every other date :/ You should seriously complain since you didn't get everything that was listed because the organisers seem a tad incompetent. I think that's ridiculous! Especially because of how much you pay!! :/

    Worst thing EVER

    I went to the Sydney show, Meet and Greet, we met her AFTER the show when she was tired and just didn't care, spent 10 seconds with her, got 2 photo's they only uploaded 1.. The other, she was bending over, and i was touching her bum, and they didn't upload it!!!!

    We asked if she would sign my album, and we didn't actually see her sign it, they took it into a totally different room, and it just wiped off once we got it back! They were all so rude to us, like it was our fault they were behind! Kept telling us to hurry up, and 'Get out of the room once your photo is taken' i couldn't even see my friend meet her!

    All in all, one of the worst concerts ive been too, I had such high expectations for you Nicki, and i absolutely am shattered that my Idol let me down, ill always love your music, but you as an artist, i have lost respect.

    When I did mine for the Femme Fatale Tour it was similar to what @Tacka experienced. We made groups of 4, which makes for an awkward photo whenever you don't know the others, but the people we were with were in our row (it was all reserved seating) so what was ok. She didn't really embrace ppl just had her arms around us, and kinda patted you on the back but I went all in and wouldn't give her the chance to do that to me . We got our photos done by one of the organizers, and then it was uploaded to http://mypinkfriday.com/media/photos/6641

    As for the time we got with Nicki for signings etc, it was all about what you do with your time. If your spazzing and crying like some of the girls that I saw come out....only got under 5 mins....for 4 ppl. My group was closer to the end and we were loud, talkative friendly ones so we got about 15 mins. One of the guys in our group was making good convo with one of her entourage (no it wasn't SB) so Nicki took a few mins to just stand back and watch them talk and make little comments with us. We got quite q few autographs done too. We each got our lanyard signed, and the girl had a magazine signed. I had one of the tour books from Britney's Meet & Greet so I asked her to add her signature on it. I also made a shirt that had both of them on it so she signed across it as well.

    @simonvenekeo I must say I'm very jealous of your experience.
    Even if someone was going to cry and spazz out meeting her they didn't get the chance as they just didn't care about anyone they just wanted everyone in and out as fast as possible cause she was running so late.

    @scottyxo are you going to write in to ground ctrl??

    MELBOURNE MEET AND GREET

    Sat, May 19, 2012 at 4:10 AM By: izabelle

     I paid $500 for my mum and I to meet Nicki Minaj, get a boob signing (or any part of your body signed), early entry into the venue, a VIP pass and a lithograph artwork (which we will get in the mail). 

    Unfortunately, all we got last night (along with 50-60 others) out of our $500 was a pass around our neck and ONE photo paired up with someone, which took 5-10 seconds. Luckily I was with my mum, otherwise I would have been with a stranger in the shot. 

    It started when box office didn't know a thing about our VIP passes. We had to be there no later than 6PM. We finally got out passes at about 6PM, which instructed we would all be collected from the internal VIP box office at 7:30 PM. What is meant to take place 'generally 2 hours before the show' had us waiting around for about two hours. We were finally taken to another room about about 8PM. 

    Her head of security briefed us and laid out rules: you will greet her with empty hands. You will meet her, get a photo and a chat, and get your skin signed. It will be a great experience for you all and you will have a lot of fun. They put a stop to objects being signed as people in the past had been rocking up with 10 albums, which is fair enough. He said that Nicki was due onstage at no later than 8:30. He told us he would be back in 2 minutes with Nicki. 

    About half an hour later someone from her team said 'we don't have enough time so we will be taking photos in pairs' which was the start of the anger process for many people. The whole VIP package was marketed with a photo showing a girl and Nicki in a close embrace, smiling for the camera. 

    Everyone could sense something was wrong when security were chatting outside of the room at about  8:40. At the worst we were expecting to be told to come back after the show.

    At about that time we were told all we could get was a quick photo and that's it. Nicki was due onstage 10 minutes ago.

    Everyone got a photo in doubles. We approached her, said 'hi' and I told her that I loved her. And she said to every pair 'thanks for coming and enjoy the show'. Then we had to leave the room immediately. 

    To give you an idea of how fast the process was, Nicki was onstage and had sung her first song before we got to our seat.

    I left her a copy of my drawing on a table. I tweeted her after the show and said that my details were on the back if she wanted to send me something signed. Needless to say I didn't and wont get a response.

    Nicki was very beautiful, in her own way. She is very small and like a little doll.

    So for $500 mum and I missed the support act, the talented Timomatic, got sore aching legs from waiting around because they didn't seat us all in a room, missed Nickis first song, and got a fucking VIP pass to hang around our necks.

    The concert itself was not absolutely amazing. She sung to backing tracks which I expected, but it seen her constantly holding the microphone at anywhere but her mouth, letting the track do the work. An hour set with no encore made us feel like we were even robbed with out Ticketek tickets.

    I am yet to email the 'organisers' and demand at least 90% of my money back, as many others will do, as all of us were very angry. 

    Did I mention that we were not told where or how or when we would receive our photos? 

    Last nights experience was not a pleasant one. I had been looking forward to it for many months. Instead it has left me feeling upset that rich people can rob hardworking people who paid for that experience. There were two kids waiting to meet her. I am embarrassed in myself for buying the passes.

    Her head of security told us When we were briefed that 'meeting Nicki is not a right, it's a privilege.' Unfortunately none of her team and Nicki herself don't realise it was our right to get what we paid for.

    I cannot discourage everyone enough who reads this to never waste your money on meet and greets. You will get more out of waiting at the airport for your favourite star. You will have a better chance of receiving more by being in standing and catching a towel or being pulled up onstage.

    I also went to the Melbourne M&G and was quite disheartened at how it was organised. I thought I would at least be able to get my album signed but obviously not. My friend and I bought her a koala bear dressed up in a tutu and a blonde wig (IT WAS SO CUTE) and we had to sit it on the table and point to the present and say it was from us. I tweeted to her to make sure that she got it but i doubt i will also get a reply.

    It was such a shame as I had also been looking forward to this for months, only to be slapped in the face so to speak.

    And I cannot even find the photos anywhere. :(

    Wow, all these stories are unbelievable. You would think "VIP" was meant to be at least somewhat of a pleasant experience. That is REALLY unacceptable that you had to double up on the pictures.. who the hell wants to get a picture with a stranger if they are going alone???

    I'm really sorry for all those who had to do it but I hope they get it together by the time the show reaches the US.
