A few weeks before the Fall Tour began an email was sent out asking for volunteers to hand out stickers for Gregg's new album. The lucky few who were chosen for each show were to receive some fairly significant incentives for doing so.

Not certain if this was the same for all shows or just the one that I attended, but the only sticker I received was one that I grabbed myself from the merchandise table. Not a single volunteer was in sight before, during, or after the show.

Again I'm not trying to call anyone out, but rather express my disappointment in the lack of follow through by some volunteers.

My wife and I were handing them out at the Tower in Philly after the show and will be again at Gregg's show at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA on December 28th 2010. Show time at 8pm! Get tickets now, they are very affordable (less than $40 and it's a great venue) He plays there almost every year and it's always a great show.

And get those stickers out there people! I left some at Gallery of Sound stores in Wilkes-Barre & Scranton PA so look there too if you didn't get one at a show.

I was at the Atlantic City show @ Trump Taj Mahal and handed out a boat load of stickers.

Got to see so many smiling happy ABB faces as they left the show - and that alone to me was worth volunteering.

I stood at the exit to the casino from the beginning of the encore and pretty much stayed there until the place emptied out.
Not sure what show(s) you were at but I for one did my job and considered it an honor to represent a small piece of
Gregg's new Album - Low Country Blues.

I was handed stickers at the first 2 Boston shows. Not sure if there were folks passing them out after the 3rd show.

I think a pre-release autographed copy of the CD and some other stuff. Can't remember, It was posted in another thread or maybe it was a peach-o-gram.

Saw you guys at the Philly show, I did not get a chance to stop by b/c i was running late getting ready for photos at the beginning and I was trying to beat the rush on the way out. Did not even grab a sticker. Oh well, I will be handing out at the Lancaster show anyway .

I got a sticker in my CD of the show in AC.

It has since disappeared.

I do remember reading the back, saying to stick somewhere unusual and take a picture and post it.
The person with the most unusual would get a deluxe signed package of the new album, etc,

this was in an email a few weeks ago. You can print the sticker image and put it somewhere too:

You’ll be able to get the stickers at the shows, or you can download the image and print your own:
http://www.greggallman.com/images/gaf/ga_lcb_sticker.tif for a high resolution TIF image, or
http://www.greggallman.com/images/gaf/ga_lcb_sticker.jpg for a pretty darn good JPG!
