    LOL you wouldn't have thought it, with all this pre-ticket anxiety. Believe it or not I've done this before four times.

    Do you have any idea how long (and bloody) that queue would have been had there not been an online sale?. Felt like half of Europe wanted that ticket.

    Got my local t-shirt printers to knock me up a t-shirt - cost 15. Fittingly, the end product is a track off the album. "Disappointed". It turns out they've sold me a t-shirt and stuck on some designs, rather than making a proper tshirt like you'd buy at a gig. Hopefully it'll look a bit better after a couple of washes...anyway, this was what I had done:-

    That is awful.

    I am embarrassed for you,and for myself when I'm inevitably going to be seen near you.

    Unless it significantly shapes up in the next 12 days, I won't be wearing it at the gig, believe me!

    Dude you went to a t-shirt printing shop. They printed something on top of your shirt. What did you expect?

    Better than that!! Where do you suggest I go apart from a t-shirt printing shop? Serious question.

    No t-shirt printing shop will do anything other than print your image onto a t-shirt. The key is to find something that doesn't look as gross. E.g. text is better than a massive dense picture.

    Yep, have subsequently thought the text looks ok, it's the shiny shiny pictures that are the issue. You live and learn...

    Just praying this is my only NIN related disappointment in the next 24 hours...

    Now, where's that petrol can....

    Will happily trade a tshirt design of your choice for a chance to buy a ticket for the scala.

    ^^^And this is why it's had to be a nin.com only ticket sale.

    Not sure how to take that...!

    Bloody glad it is, but still agree that they should have stopped sign up to nin.com until the sale had passed, to stop opportunists getting in there. Might not be a popular opinion, but hey, if you were that much of a fan.....

    What about those of us whose accounts are ancient/never used? The last time I used nin.com was to buy tickets in 2009. I had no idea what I signed up with...

    To what end? The point is to ensure that whoever buys the ticket attends the show, not to make it available to an elite few only.

    Will the pre-sale link go up on tour.nin.com? This is my first time buying tickets like this. Wouldn't want to miss the link when it hits in 21 minutes.

    Maybe so, but there'll still be casual fans signing up on the off chance, and almost certainly taking tickets out of the hands of people like us how inhabit these boards on a daily basis. Doesn't seem right to me.

    Scorpius - I take your point, but knowing that NIN do a lot of presales through the NIN.com site, and knowing they've started touring again, you'd think that you'd have maybe taken a couple of minutes a few weeks ago, to sign up again as this'll be more on your radar than the casual fan who happens to see it mentioned on nme.com or wherever, and signs up on the day. This is a bit unique admittedly, as it's one of the few, if not the only NIN shows to be sold only through NIN.com.

    Opinions will vary, no biggie.

    Got my pc and laptop side by side logged in in case one of them is shite at the vital moment!

    Anyway, to everyone on here who's trying - good luck!!
