Q.  Hello Oracle!
Ive notice that some fans have more than one Xyloband on at a time. Is there a limit of how much you can have, do you to pay for the extra ones?

I'm glad you brought this up.
I went to the Emirates on Friday and Saturday nights. At the second show during Hurts Like Heaven I remembered that my Xyloband from the previous night was still in my possession and when I checked, there it was flashing away so I put it on.
I was wearing two but had only taken one per show.
I know other fans who have been to several shows wear their Xylobands from all gigs so it is hopefully that reason you see multiple ones adorning arms.
We hand Xylobands out on the way in (ONE per person) but they are not included in the ticket price so if you don't get one, it may be down to luck, timing or the unforgivable...
If anyone reading this has taken more than one on the way in to a show and seen people without - then shame on you if you did not give a Xyloband up to another fan in need. #justsaying
Please be fair and please share.

Q.  Hello,

I've been poking around the Oracle section and have come across many questions that refer to Xylo-bands. Can you explain what they are? I'm going to a show in August and I want to at least partially know what to expect.

Thank you (o:

Xylobands are wristbands with LED lights that flash and light up during certain songs. They are handed out as you enter the venue and are activated by radio control. All you do is wear it like a bracelet and wait for the show to start.

Q.  Good day to you oh wise and all-knowing Oracle ~

I was wondering if we should bring and wear our Xylo-bands to shows going forward in the future or were they just for this tour? We went to the Hollywood Bowl show on Friday and then brought them with us to the Weenie Roast on Saturday hoping they would come on but to no avail... alas they stayed quiet and dark... thus my question came to be... do we bring them with us to shows going forward? Thank you for your time.

If you're coming along to more than one show, you don't need to bring your xyloband as you will receive another. The reason it doesn't work once your outside the venue (apart from the odd rogue one) is they are activated during the show by radio control.
Please remove the batteries and recycle them if you can.

Q.  Hi Oracle!
I loved the interview with Jason Regler! It was very informative and interesting.
However, I have one question. Will the wristbands be used at all future shows? I'm going to the show in San Jose CA in April and I'm wondering if they might use them there. Also, will they cost anything?

I would say yes to that but if you want to follow Jason on twitter, he'll probably keep you updated. They are handed out as people arrive at no cost.
