Default Mike Tyson UK Dinner tour. Has anyone previously been???

I was interested in going.

The gold ticket package is £200 which is steeeep. It promises you a photo with Mike.

However i have heard a few things that are putting me off.

I heard he wont sign anything for you due to the auctions they have after and you only get a photo.

I also read that he actually bolted after only taking one photo in one of the previous dinners and every one who paid an extra £150 or so for the photo got shafted.

Has anyone been? What was it like? Did you get an autograph?

Funny thing is i met Tyson at Jet nightclub in Vegas last year but seeing i was out with my friends and he was too i shock his hand but didnt have a pen for an autograph and didn't want to bother him for a photo in a night club when he was with his lady.

SORRY MEANT TO PUT THIS IN THE OTHER FORUM.

That's always the case with these sort of things; the promoters won't let them do it even if they want to. Even more so here, presumably, as they are charity gigs and presumably the auctions are a major source of the money raised.

I know someone who went a Tyson dinner speech few years ago and said it was awesome. Think he paid around £500 for a ticket and got his pic with Tyson.

You know if he got an autograph?

I heard after one of the dinners a few people just went to his hotel and got pictures and autographs for free.

The £30 tix are stall tix. You only get a picture with him with the £200 ticket.

But i have heard people just walked upto his table and asked before and he said yes. I also heard he bailed after giving ONE of the many people who forked out for £300 a tick to get a picture.

Thank you to the person who said theyd call and ask.
