Australia is Spoiled for True Blood Events This Year

Posted on the 19 July 2012 by Truebloodnetcom @truebloodnet

Boy are Australians in for a treat this year in relation to True Blood events! Not only do we have the Hub Productions convention occurring at the end of this month, but a second convention is also booked for the end of the year. Not to mention the awesome True Blood-inspired Halloween party that Seamus O’Toole’s holds every year in Melbourne…

Firstly, for those of you who ordered tickets for the Tru Blood 2 convention, Carissa from Hub Productions has verified that due to a printing issue, tickets will now be collected from the venue – so make sure you bring your photo ID for collection. So far, Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) and Charlaine Harris (Author of the Southern Vampire Mysteries series that inspired HBO’s True Blood) are the only confirmed guests but negotiations are still under way and there should be a final announcement shortly.

If you are unable to make the Tru Blood 2 convention, why not aim for the one being run by First Contact Conventions: Full Blood. $120 will get you entry unlimited access to all areas of the convention. $500 will get you VIP tickets which includes a seat in the first two rows of the Q & A sessions with the stars, exclusive access to the VIP Chill Out room, a ticket to the Club Fangtasia Halloween party and so much more. Full details can be found here. So who are the guests for this event? The confirmed actors so far are: Kristin Bauer (Pam), Tara Buck (Ginger), Kevin Alejandro (Jesus) and Lauren Bowles (Holly). Wow – what a line up!

Finally, we come to Club Fangtasia, the awesome True Blood-inspired Halloween party that Seamus O’Toole’s runs every year in Melbourne. This year it will be a little different — there will be True Blood actors attending! Unfortunately, all the VIP tickets for this event are sold out, but if you are really lucky, you might be able to snap up one of the few remaining general admission tickets here. While this ticket means you can’t hang out all night with your fave True Blood stars in the VIP room, you will still be able to see them during the night when they come downstairs for the auctions and other special appearances.

So who has tickets for any of these events yet? Let me know in the comments below. Also, what questions would you like me to ask Sam and Charlaine?
