Next year, Fear Factory will be taking off for a North American headlining tour. Accompanying the band are Static-X, Mushroomhead, and Dope.

While this tour is starting in a couple of months, band guitarist Dino Cazares wants to give his fans a heads up; specifically, a heads up for those who bought a VIP ticket.

Per a post of his over on Twitter, the Fear Factory guitarist shares that if you bought a VIP ticket and expect a meet and greet with the band – that is not part of the package.

However, Dino is more than happy to meet you over at the band’s merch table!

Per Dino’s tweet:

“If anyone bought VIP tix for the upcoming ‘Rise Of The Machine’ tour thinking they are for a FF meet n greet we never put any up for sale. I will be at the merch table every night for autograph/photos with the purchase of FF merch. It’s a much more affordable way to meet me”

This is a cool gesture on Dino’s behalf, given that some bands charge a lot of money for meet and greets, and the guy is down to say hi to you if you walk over to the band’s merch table.

A lot of folks probably intend on buying some form of merch while at a show, so now they get a photo with the Fear Factory member alongside their shirt or whatever. Dino has been vocal about the stresses of modern-day touring, so it’s neat that, despite that, he’s down to meet his fans for no extreme costs.

If you are interested in seeing Fear Factory live, you will find all the dates and locations associated with the band’s upcoming North American tour.
