From time to time, the Music City Texas Theater will present what we call "Super Shows" featuring mega-stars from the entertainment industry such as Jackson Browne, Don Henley and others. Presently, we have ongoing negotiations with Emmylou Harris, Jimmy Buffett and Joe Walsh, etc., but entertainers of this caliber are, understandably, in high demand and it is difficult to find availabilities in their touring schedule and negotiate a price we can afford. The tickets for these shows are usually $100 and up and sell out in just a few days. There are no set time frames for presenting these shows, as we will book them whenever they make themselves available, even if it falls on weekdays. We will always post these shows here on the website and, of course, our Patron donors have first shot at purchasing tickets before they go on sale to the general public. Due to the size of the theater, the amount of tickets that can be purchased by any individual may be limited, at the discretion of MCT, to avoid potential scalping and to allow more folks the opportunity to get tickets. The windows of opportunity for Patrons to purchase "Super Show" tickets are published and made known well in advance and are distributed in order, from the highest Patron level on down. Once the windows of opportunity for Patron ticket purchasing have passed, the remainder of tickets are offered for sale to the general public.
To become a Patron in order to get "first shot" at buying "Super Show" tickets within six months before a "Super Show," one must first become a "Flat" donor -- that is, signing up with a "flat yearly donation in full" at whichever level one chooses (see more info at the "Becoming a Patron" link on our home page).
After the initial first full year donation, Patrons wishing to continue their support can change status to "Sustaining Patrons" -- that is, to switch to a monthly donation to make it easier on one's pocketbook. We were forced to adopt this policy after our first "Super Show" as, unfortunately, there were those who signed up at the lowest level of Sustaining Patronship in order to get tickets, only to cancel their Patronship after the show, making only the first monthly donation payment. Being the honest folks that we are, this was a "loophole" that we overlooked, and therefore we were compelled to adopt the "Flat full year donation" policy in order to be fair to all, especially to those who have become Sustaining Patrons in earnest.
However, one can become a Sustaining Patron by signing up with only the first month's donation payment if they choose to sign up at least six months prior to any scheduled "Super Show" or if there are no scheduled "Super Shows" posted on our Schedule of Events.
We appreciate and value our Patrons highly, as they are the lifeblood of the Theater. We do our best to offer as many "perks" as possible to our Patrons, such as "free First Saturday of the Month" show tickets during the summer months, periodic Patron Appreciation Parties and any other benefits that we can come up with, including "meet and greets" with the artists. These benefits are offered to all levels of Patrons with the exception of "meet and greets" which are designated by the artists themselves, depending on the artist's time availability for such "meet and greets." However, we always encourage our artists to allow as much time as they can in order to accommodate as many of our Patrons as possible.
In cases where there is not time for the artists to meet and greet all of our Patrons, in an effort to be fair, we offer the opportunity to our highest Patron level first and then to the next level down and so forth, until the allowable time is used up. Whenever possible, we encourage the artists to come out after the show and allow everyone in the audience the opportunity to get autographs, pictures, signed CDs and merchandise.
