    Birmingham to Los Angeles - 2073 miles. To be fair, the reason for the trip was to visit friends I hadn't seen in too long, but the Tension show was certainly the catalyst for the dates I chose to visit.

    From Perth to Singapore - a five/six hour flight. Met some nice people and made very good friends.

    I've always been lucky enough to live near cities that are typical tour stops, so the farthest I've traveled was 150 miles from Flagstaff, Arizona to Phoenix for NINJA.

    I rode on a bus for 9 hours to be at Lolla last year so that I was at the first show back in the States. Then, while moving from Omaha to NYC, I stopped in Cleveland for a Tension show there. I dunno if that counts or not, as it was kinda on the way.

    I'll see shows 5 & 6 this summer. And I will have seen them in 6 different states. Which is amusing to me for whatever reason.

    São Paulo, Brazil, to NYC, around 4700 miles to see the Tension concert on Brooklyn last year.

    Of course I took a few days off to enjoy NYC, but the whole trip was definitely centered around the concert.

    [J'ai voulu aller à Paris l'été passé pour les voir-mais ça n'a pas marché.]

    Farthest would ~460 miles, Cleveland to New York for Wave Goodbye. I flew for that, though. Longest drive would be Cleveland to Chicago, same tour.

    Closest would be 1.2 miles for Year Zero when I was living in Melbourne CBD

    As a Canadian, travelling anywhere is pretty far! From Calgary, I've flown to Vancouver, Vegas, Toronto and Chicago to catch a number of shows.

    my longest distance was a 2 hours flight from Geneva to Copenhagen last spring.
    While I was doing the math, I discovered a nice function in the new Google Maps which allows you to calculate the distance between two or more points. Just right click >Measure Distance and create your path



    So in total I traveled 6888 km or 4280 miles (lol this map is a good example of the pointless things I do when I can't sleep at night, it's 4AM here).

    I usually can't afford to go to more than one show per tour and I usually live somewhere where there's a tour stop but my two farthest -
    1. I made it to two fragility shows. I lived in Fullerton, CA and saw them in San Diego. The other show was Anaheim which is the next town over in case you were wondering.
    2. Living in the Philadelphia area, I went to one of the NYC wave goodbye shows. Living in the same place I went to see HTDA in Harlem which is the same distance but that's not NIN and I saw Tension in Newark which wasn't as far.

    From Chicago to LA for Jimmy Kimmel and the Staples Center show on the most recent tour. Hollywood is a shit hole, oh man, but we had box seats at the Staples Center so that was all in all pretty great.

    Just broke my old record. New one is 555 km or 344 miles-ish. Long 7 hour Greyhound ride plus 3 hour drive from Vancouver to the festival site. Repeat about five days later.

    396 miles to San Antonio-also my first NIN show. Made it to Dallas to crash for the night. I am getting too old for these long ass overnight drives-but living in Oklahoma always makes for a 2+ hour drive.
