Below is an official update from The Vampire Lestat Fan Club on the status of the TRU BLOOD & GOLD vampire ball in New Orleans. If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, do so now before they sell out!
We bring you now a little update on ticket sales and shipping for ‘Tru Blood and Gold’. Member ticket sales have been very good, with many new members planning their public debut this year! New Blood is the Truest Blood of All. So, when you see a new face at the Ball this year please take a moment to greet and welcome them. We have noticed also that many of our newest members are bringing fledgling friends with them, welcome them as well. The more the merrier! Tickets for the public will be released after August 31st and we recommend that you snatch them up if you plan to bring your costumed entourage to the most anticipated literary event of the Halloween Season! As a reminder, public tickets will be sold for the full face value of $35.oo. Members who have not purchased tickets yet may do so and receive their initial discount until tickets are sold out. Get your tickets soon, we don’t advise waiting.
The first wave of tickets that are eligible for shipping will be mailing soon so please be looking for your postal carrier at your door. All tickets that were eligible for shipping within the United States will require signature as proof of delivery. Tickets will only be shipped out once a week and no tickets will be mailed after the 15th of October to allow for delivery time. All other tickets must be picked up at the will call line on the night of the Ball.
Our special guests for ‘Tru Blood and Gold’ include Charlaine Harris, creator of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, and Gabrielle Faust, creator of the Eternal Vigilance series. Musical guests include Saints of Ruin, the Kinky Tuscaderos, and Marc Gunn. Join us at Republic New Orleans on October 30th to see them all! Dress to Impress!
While you are online getting your ‘Tru Blood and Gold’ tickets don’t forget to pick up tickets for the Wine Tasting Event to be held on the night before the Ball at Montreal’s Bistro in the French Quarter. This year the selection will include the option of an Absinthe Tasting to add to your evening of fun and frivolity! Tickets can be obtained through the same website as for the Ball and the Wine Tasting is a separate event requiring a separate ticket purchase. This is a more relaxed event with costumes optional/evening attire admired. Come drink the blood of the vine with us.
Don’t forget to check out our friends at Endless Night XII on Saturday night at the House of Blues for a Halloween Celebration you’ll surely enjoy! It’s a very different party with a lot of fun and familiar friends! DJ’s will spin your favorites for ‘An Evening in Versailles’ and you can dance the night into day. For more information on the Endless Night event we have a link for you: www.endlessnight.com
We look forward to seeing you all there!
