    About 3,500 miles each way. Went from Boston to Paris (twice), Amsterdam (3 times), Los Angeles (3 times), and then 30+ shows over the years here in the Northeast

    About 350 miles for NIN (Sioux Falls to St. Paul, for Tension and Fragility back in the day. It was like 200 or so down to Council Bluffs during LITS), but I drove almost 600 miles to Milwaukee from Sioux Falls to see Ministry back in 2003. WELL WELL worth it!

    Whenever they hit Toronto and not Montreal, I take a road trip by bus, usually about 5 hours between each city.

    4992 miles (air): Wave Goodbye club tour, 2009. I somehow got tickets to all 10 venues. But I missed the two shows in Chicago because I got the "NINflu" in NYC. Spent the whole time in Chicago in my hotel room bed.

    2587 miles (driving): Tension tour. I took two weeks to travel with my friend from France. Home/Montreal/Toronto/Cleveland/Pittsburgh/Boston/Uncasville/Brooklyn/D.C./University Park/home (We skipped Detroit. I had the NiNflu again...)

    204 miles, from Leesburg to West Palm Beach Florida. Not a long distance compared to what a lot of other people have gone, but definitely far for myself and quite the drive to sit through.

    580 kilometers (or 360 miles, an almost six-hour drive in each direction) from Toronto to Grand Rapids, Michigan. But @Dingerz was driving, and she's way more hardcore about doing this, haha. Just a few days before that I went solo to Kanata, Ontario, which is about two thirds as far, but kind of in the opposite direction. Both shows were on the same tour: Lights in the Sky Over North America, second leg, with Boris opening. I was just out of school, underemployed, and had a lot of free time. Ah, memories!

    Also did Cleveland in 2005, which is about the same driving distance, but that was part of a longer trip with other stuff planned on either side of the show... had a good time, but I was basically using the sightseeing as an excuse to get a lift and see NIN/QotSA/Autolux.

    Not too far. From Atlanta to Charlotte. However because of a massive fuck-up with NIN VIP tickets at the Atlanta NINJA show, NIN management gave quite a few of us amazing seats, put everyone on a bus to get there, let us watch the mic check, and treated us to a meet and greet to get things signed. It was an awesome night! Their management was amazing!

    Lansing, Michigan to..

    -Atlanta 2000 for a joint trip that also involved seeing The Cure a couple days prior.
    - And Coachella 2005 but planned on going regardless of NIN being on the lineup that year. Was just a really nice bonus.

    All my other shows have been in state (except Toledo 2008 but that doesn't really count)

    I was there too. I didn't ride the bus. We had a blast. That sound check was amazing.

    ETA: i went from atlanta to denver (1200 miles) in 2008 to see them at Red Rocks. I had 4th row thanks to nin.com presale.

    Almost 2,000 miles driven over night from Kirksville Mo to Indio Cali for Coachella 05 with a stop over in the grand canyon.

    Everything sold out so quick for the club tour, my friends and I felt we had no choice. What a beautiful decision it was. We bought with teeth at a best buy on the way home and didn't stop listening until we took the keys from the jeep.

    Driven from San Francisco to LA twice (wave goodbye and tension). About 330 miles. Super worth it both times (I love visiting la anyway).

    Went from SoCal to Vegas in 2013 for both nights at the Hard Rock Hotel and then back to Vegas in 2014 at Planet Hollywood. I've also seen them in LA, Chula Vista, San Diego, Anaheim & Irvine(all about 15 minutes to 90 minutes away from me)

    Melbourne Australia to Dublin Ireland

    I was living out there and coincided a trip home with their gig in Marley Park. There was no way I was missing a rare Irish performance.

    I'll cheat a little bit on this one. In 2005, I was in Switzerland for work, but I decided to extend my stay for the Greenfield Festival in Interlaken (June 24th, 2005). So technically, the distance was 4,000 Miles (from Princeton, NJ). The performance got cancelled day-of when "Die Toten Hosen's" stage props destroyed all of NIN's guitars during a thunderstorm.

    I've only seen NIN six times, unfortunately (I will never understand how people can afford to follow a band around the country and see them like 10 times on one tour) so mine isn't too impressive. However, the last time they toured, I caught the St. Paul, MN show, flew out to Portland, OR to attend that show with a friend who lives there, and then planned a vacation in Chicago around the Tinley Park date, so I saw them three times in the course of a year.

    NIN really don't have much luck at European festivals do they? That really sucks

    For me it was going from LA to Fresno in 2005 for the kick off of the With Teeth tour. It was totally worth it.

    I've travelled to New Zealand from Australia for a few tours now. Plan on doing it again, once they come back out to this neck of the woods.

    Last time my friend (who came over to Australia for shows, then I went back with her) and I went from Auckland to Wellington and then on to Christchurch. Heaps of flights, missing flights also...but it was worth it!
