    So I’ve never been able to get in the pit at a NIN show. I know that back in the day it would be pretty rough, but how about now? I know a lot of us are “old” now, so I’m hoping it has tamed some so I can get a chance to work my way up front, at least for a song or two...

    Cold and Black and Infinite Fall Tour - 2018 Live Tour Discussion

    So, there are tons of dates on the docket this year. TRís previous interviews discussed only playing a limited amount of shows every year for the next few years. Then the latest interview he already sounds like heís going to be ready to give it an extended break after this year. Itís almost as if he fell into the same previous trap of booking more shows than what he really wanted to do and now weíre going to be left wondering when nin will be back around again, if ever. Just an observation that I donít really think he knows what he wants to do about touring.

    well, after the Friday and Saturday tickets sold out, I got four for each of the two remaining days.
    I'm not sure if I'll be going to both, but I had some friends ask if I could get them some if possible. If they don't take them, I'll offer them up for face value on here.

    Also, I stood in line for nearly nine hours. NINE hours.

    I know people. Just like when I hinted at this whole thing the day before it was announced.

    Yeah, he sounded kind of pissy in that interview. Probably due to all the festivals all over different countries and continents. But hey, gotta show up to work to bring home the paycheck too.

    to be fair, I did get along with the people around me in the crowd... but by the time we were eight hours deep, everyone was pretty spent. The food truck sold out of water, and I was so fucking dehydrated I started getting a Charlie horse in my side... and I'm pretty sure I'm sunburnt as hell.

    This was the coolest thing I’ve done for a band in a while. Had a great time, met great people.

    I Spent too much because I truly believe this might be the last “major” NIN tour. Not sure Trent will be able to do this much longer. Remember how bad his voice was shot for LITS? Wonder how what the performance on the end of the leg will be like.

    seeing photos of the ticket queues I spotted a Slip T shirt (the one with the red line across the breast) and I remembered I really liked but could never find one in L. Never mind!

    It worked.
    When I saw that the bullshit we were subjected to today was trending on twitter, that's when I realized what you said. The unspoken reason he did this was to hopefully generate publicity/buzz ON THE BACKS of us diehards. But not for our benefit, but rather for the masses he has trouble reaching now. So yeah it def. worked, but it's not right that we had to be experimented on (and suffer insane wait times) to get that result.

    You know what makes that even more insulting? These decisions are never made all herky jerky the day of a ticket on-sale. That goes for any group. These added shows are always known to be part of the plan (or at least potential plan) much earlier in the process by both band mgmt & the promoter, but they hold the info back from us so the announced show(s) sell out first.

    They could easily run up to Toronto or Montreal after NYC and before Boston.

    Evidently they were selling tix in LA up until 6p. People on Reddit stating they got in line at 830 and left at 530/6

    What exactly was fun for you? Taking over 4 hours from the 10am start to get tickets is just plain unacceptable. That's what I went through, and there were people who had it far, far worse behind me.

    Hopefully this experiment dies after this weekend, but if Trent does do it again, they need to have an agreement with the promoter for many, many more people working the box office, and they need to try and move the early people along in their purchases quicker for the non-GA shows. The people earlier in the day at Radio City had a myriad of great seat options, and as such I think alot of them took their time (which is understandable considering how long they waited overnight). But that time started snowballing down the line, and grinded forward line movement to a halt. Really a garbage way to do an on-sale, and all to just get people talking about NIN on social media imo.

    Based on the 9999999 comments on fb about this, it sounds like this is turning into a total shitshow. Tons of people commenting the NIN thread ranting and raving at how horrible this is, waiting in line for 10 hours, driving 400 miles, only to not end up getting tickets etc....Dont think this is going to work at all

    Y'know, it was definitely an ordeal, and there was a lot of commiserating griping amongst strangers... and the lack of water was an issue... also, I think most people didn't quite realize what they were signing up for (I sure as fuck didn't).

    That said, it was a unique experience. It was a glimpse of a bygone era from when we didn't have everything at our fingertips, and fuck it, I made it. Sure, at the time, I was thinking to myself "Jesus Christ, I shoulda just bought a scalped ticket." But now, these things are gold, and I feel like I earned them.

    As a scalper deterrent, it isn't set up quite right unfortunately... the crew in front of me was already plotting on how to have the tickets they were buying "pay for themselves and then some." I kept my opinion to myself on that. There were a lot of good ideas going on there, but sure, it coulda been pulled off a bit more successfully... I guess it's to be expected that you'll have some hiccups when you're trying to resurrect inconvenience for nostalgia that only a portion of the crowd appreciates.

    Really though, this coulda worked with a bit more immediate payoff included, and at least twice the number of ticket vendors. There were some kiosks with headphones, food trucks, the photo op was cute... but really, let's look at efficiency. I sat there for nine hours, and even then, by that point only two of the four dates had sold out (and the Friday gig sold out RIGHT BEFORE I got to the vendor). The venue is 3700 capacity. You should be prepared to sell more than 14800 tickets within 9 hours.

    Maybe even do something like the way In N Out Burger handles long lines... have some guy walk up to the people parked in line and take their order, swipe their card, and then hand them a ticket for them to pick up their order. We still would have been there for a LONG time, we'd have gotten the experience. Ironically, I think a lot of the amenities and flair was overlooked because people were so focused on just maintaining their position in line. It felt like a cross between a dash of hardcore nostalgia and the worst day at the DMV ever.
