The Wolfies

July 18, 2009 by  

I’m a firm believer in healthy competition, and it looks like this here site – or at least those there forums – will have some shortly.

Wolfmother recently announced that they are launching a fan club, called The Wolfies – a term we have been using here and in the forums for years now to refer to the band’s fans. http://www.thewolfiesonline.com

Wolfies

At the moment, membership is restricted to those who buy a concert ticket. Which seems a bit daft to me because that’s instantly limiting membership to those areas the band is touring, ie Australia and a couple of parts of the US. Why not just charge a small fee to get in? I’m sure a few dozen forum members would happily pay a few bucks. Then again, they probably want to limit membership during the “trial” stage before rolling out to everyone.

It’ll be interesting to see how things turn out, particularly with the “members only forums”. Our forums just passed a thousand members, so they’ve got a bit of catching up to do =0)

Some of the other benefits though sound awesome, such as pre-sale tickets and ‘hanging out with the band. I’ll certainly be joining when the opportunity arises.

    I just feel hurt by this to be honest.. They are basically announcing a tour in every other part of the world before the UK.. HOWEVER ANDREW HAS CONFIRMED IT BY THE END OF THE YEAR!
    lets form a union.. the British Wolfies Association..
