SPECIAL COLLECTIVE ACTIVITIES

We remind to all LPFC members that if you wish to pay tribute to Laura with various activities, for example Flash mobs or something alike, you are ALWAYS required to inform the Official Fan Club about them.

TRIBUTE BANDS

We know about the existence of many Laura Pausini Tribute Bands.  First and foremost Laura and all of us with her are very happy that these bands are taking around the name Laura Pausini besides their own professionalism. The only comment we would like to point out is the question of the formalization. We know that some of the bands are using terms as ‘OFFICIAL’ or ‘UFFICIALE’ to define themselves as a band that we recognized.

We kindly request to the members subscribed to the Fan Club of the Tribute Bands dedicated to Laura to NOT to use terms as ‘OFFICIAL’ and ‘UFFICIALE’ associated with the name Laura Pausini on posters, invitations and on their websites or promotion material.

We confirm on behalf of Laura and the Fan Club all of our esteem and our support for your nowadays and future initiatives.

GENERAL RULES FOR ATTENDING THE SOUND CHECK

ONLY members of the Fan Club www.laura4u.com with valid subscription will have access to the sound check.

The performance of the sound check does not depend on the Fan Club. The sound check will be performed, wherever it is possible, before the Artist’s concert independently on the Artist’s presence and compatibly with the security protocols, the regulations and/or the technical and/or logistic issues and/or the measures of the competent authorities and the decisions made by the producers of Artist’s concerts. Sound check schedule may vary and is determined by the AUTHORIZATION of the Safety Commission and Public Assistance. Once the said Commission grants the authorization, members will be able to enter for the sound check. There will be a dedicated and reported entrance at the concert place (“Fan Club entrance”) where a person in charge of the Fan Club is going to oversee, monitor and handle the whole Fan Club entry process to the sound check completely independently. Any type of list and/or order entry written by members HAS NOT ANY value.

Members will attend the sound check from the purchased sector for matters of public order.

Members of the Laura Pausini Fan Club can participate to the sound check before the beginning of the concerts if they have in their hands a member card, which can be in printed or digital format (virtual card) and it has to be valid on the concert date, and a regular concert ticket. (We remind you that you can access to you virtual card at any moment in your personal area of the Website, you can show it both in printed and digital format and the virtual card has the same validity of the printed one)

UNDERAGE members (with valid membership card – or Virtual Card – which is valid in the date of the concert they chose + a regular concert ticket) can participate to the sound check accompanied by a parent or another adult person, as long as this person is in possession of a regular concert ticket.

DISABLED PEOPLE ENTRANCE

The reception and placing management to disabled people in the area assigned to them on the occasion of the concerts is a matter totally organized by the local organization, based on the judgment of the Safety Commission.
