The stars are cashing in on fan VIP experiences, and Dua Lipa charges a steep £ 1,800.

THEY say: don’t meet your heroes, especially when you have to pay for it.


We shared yesterday how Wayne Rooney charges fans £ 450 for a VIP show.

Wayne Rooney charges fans £ 450 for a VIP show

The ticket price included a meeting with the Derby County manager at a Manchester hotel, an autographed T-shirt, a complimentary drink, a three-course dinner, a souvenir photo, and luxury seats to listen to his speech.


But angry fans didn’t buy expensive tickets, and one said, “Not at that price.”

He’s not the only celebrity handing out VIP packages to his fans, and some are more expensive than others.


From Dua Lipa to Gemma Collins, Katy Docherty represents the celebrity meeting league.

Dua Lipa – £ 1842

TICKETS for Dua’s solo performances aren’t cheap, but the pop star has definitely put a lot of money into her VIP Future Nostalgia tour.

Fans pay to be invited to a pre-concert “house party” that takes place at the venue.


The package includes a dance lesson from a professional choreographer, access to a glamorous crew, and a group photo with the 26-year-old star herself.

Paid clients even get the opportunity to dance with the levitating singer, but only if they participate in advance and win the competition.

Justin Bieber – £ 900

Justin’s arrangements to meet and greet on his Justice world tour come with the promise of “memories of a lifetime.”


But you better remember that the experience of dating the singer Baby comes with a big caveat.

If you are alone, you will need to take a photo with three other random people.

Experience pays for a backstage tour and photo with the heartthrob himself.

However, if you are alone, you will need to take a photo with three other random people as Justin will not be taking one-on-one shots.

Arnold Schwarzenegger – £ 745

The TERMINATOR star will return … to the NEC in Birmingham in September.

And you can shell out nearly a thousand to meet him and attend a 60 minute Q&A session.

But fans who pay for a premium signed photo don’t have to worry about bringing their own pen as the pictures will be signed in gold ink.

If that’s not thoughtful enough, the photo is even framed, saving you the hassle of shopping.

Alicia Keys – £ 628

Fans of THE Fallin ‘singer will be delighted to know that for over £ 600 they can take a look at the star’s collection of memorabilia.

Of course, the package includes a photo of the woman herself, but players will also have the option to pose for the show with an Alicia Keys theme in the background.

For over £ 600, fans can take a look at Alicia Keys' memorabilia collection.

If that wasn’t enough for a happy shot, there is also a vague props photo booth that they can enjoy.

Then, when you get home, you can brush up on your knowledge of Alicia Keys with a signed copy of her autobiography.

Steps – £ 375

The STEPS reunion tour meet and greet offers, also known as Step’Tacular Upgrade Packages, are what to expect from the band.

For your money, you’ll get a meet and greet experience, an exclusive Q&A session, and a signed program from teenyboppers.

But the cherry on top for fans may be the knowledge that they will also receive a collectible STEPS strap.

Blue – £ 349

This year’s BLUE Heart and Soul tour gives fans the opportunity to take photos next to their 2000 dream boats with a DSLR camera or iPhone.

But not just some old Apple phone – or, God forbid, Nokia – you will be removed with just a “premium iPhone.”

You will only be withdrawn from "premium iphone"

In the context, organizers point out that if Covid lifts its ugly head again, the group will be protected by an “antivirus plexiglass screen” while you take your photo.

Ronan Keating – £ 240

LIFE is a roller coaster and therefore we are booking a meet and greet for the Boyzone singer tour.

Despite being called the Twenty Twenty Tour, concert dates are actually set for 2022 but have since been pushed back.

The VIP package will set you back £ 240 on top of the original £ 45 ticket.

If all of this wasn’t confusing enough, the VIP package will cost you £ 240 – on top of your original £ 45 ticket.

Ronan’s saving grace, however, is that he offers a professional post-chat fan photo shoot as well as a very ambiguous “merchandise.”
Everything is very mysterious.

Gary Neville – £ 150

Fans can pay to be photographed with the favorite Manchester United ahead of the live interview.

His sold-out “An Evening with Gary Neville” event at a hotel in Northampton offers a brilliant Superstar Platinum package.

As an added bonus, Gary, 46, will sign whatever you bring from home as part of the deal.

What do you say?

Well, apparently, the former England defender, and now the co-owner of the second league club “Salford City” puts an end to the signing of the “paintings”.

So don’t even think about taking your Monet and Caravaggio with you.

Gemma Collins – £ 115

Former Towie star throws a one-woman show in April and offers fans the opportunity to get to know her better before the curtain goes up.

GC’s “Ultimate Divaship Package” on Big Night Out promises “a pleasant VIP experience before performing with the GC itself.”

You will be able to remember this event with a signed A5 photo with Gemma.

How intimate remains to be seen.

But you will be able to remember this event with a signed A5 photo with Gemma, 40 years old.

And you can carry it in your big GC bag.

PAW Patrol – £ 68

IF some moms or dads are wondering how their little ones can watch PAW Patrol, the live show is the answer.

This year, Peppa Pig’s rival dogs will tour the UK with their Race To The Rescue show.

With the VIP (Very Important Pup) seats offered, you can get even closer to the superhero rescue dogs.

And after the show, your little ones will be able to take pictures with giant costumed creatures, as well as with the main character Ryder.

Ricky Hatton – £ 60

FORMER boxing champion Ricky, 43, offers fans the opportunity to buy 30 minutes of his time ahead of a live broadcast in Northampton.

Sean Ryder – £ 50

The VIP experience from the Happy Mondays frontman allows fans to take photos with the Madchester badge.

The eccentric singer, now a UFO hunter, toured the country, giving the interview “An Evening with …”.

More expensive tickets also promise a Q&A session with 59-year-old Sean, who once claimed cycling cured him of his heroin and cocaine addiction.

But do not expect a deep and meaningful conversation – you have only one question allotted to you.

Presumably damage prevention.
