passes and prizes

Important information about prizes/donations contributed by Trooper:

VIP Passes

A VIP pass entitles you to free admission to the Trooper performance of your choice, and the opportunity to personally meet the band members back stage and hang out with them. *Some exceptions may apply. Pass is not valid for private or corporate functions, or venues and events which insist on restricted access, maximum security, and/or pre-screening (e.g. Olympics, Calgary Stampede, PNE Vancouver).

Please note that Trooper's tour schedule results from the hiring of the band by venues and events across the country, and that is what determines where they perform and on what dates. Trooper is not involved in whether a show is private, adults only, or restricted access - these are factors that the people paying for and hosting the show understandably get to decide. Therefore it is impossible for Trooper to predict who may win any contest/auction/draw to which passes have been donated, or when the band may be hired to perform at a show close to the recipient.

Pass has no cash value. Pass does not include travel or accommodations, or any compensation for same. You may transfer ownership to another recipient if you choose, but a pass can be redeemed only once. There is no expiry date.

To redeem, please contact business [at] trooper.com at least a week in advance of the show date, state which show you wish to attend, and quote the confirmation number given on the prize certificate. Failure to notify us at least in a week in advance might make it impossible to arrange for your VIP attendance on your requested date.

Other items

A merchandise prize includes the cost of shipping to your location of choice. All autographs are guaranteed authentic. Item can not be exchanged, refunded, or redeemed for cash value.
