The Company Behind JUDAS PRIEST VIP Experience

Paid, Inc.. From their corp background:

During this same time period the Company began hosting an increasing number of autograph signings and also started engaging in the business of hosting celebrity websites. This new venture began with athletes and quickly moved to provide fan community services for music artists, celebrities, and entertainers. The athlete websites started to grow and with a roster of great football and baseball players like Doug Flutie, Tim Wakefield, and Bronson Arroyo, new athletes/clients were signing up with Paid every month. In 2004, the Company signed a contract to host Aerosmith's Official Fan community, www.AeroForceOne.com, and a new age of Paid's business began to evolve. Soon afterwards Paid began to sign other music clients and celebrities and now hosts such artists as The Cars, Patti LaBelle, DMC and Rockapella.

Paid now provides a multitude of services for their celebrity clientele including video production, merchandising, ticketing, fan experience programs, community development, management, marketing and sponsorships. Paid's philosphy of great products and customer service continues today as they continue to grow and become a leader in the celebrity services industry.
