    Just sent out my email also. VIP GA TICKETS HERE I COME. I cant believe that they are doing a Saturday show! I was just on the phone with my mother yesterday jokingly telling her to send a text message to Jesus asking that Trent Reznor would do a Saturday show. lol *faints*

    When were you able to purchase the VIP tickets for the other shows? Was it the day of the presale?

    Three nights of NIN in Vegas? I'm so stoked! However, am I the only one nervous that the set lists for all 3 shows will damn near be identical? That would not be cool.

    Last years shows averaged 18 to 20 songs with like 30 different songs total though out. I see at least a few songs getting switched. I am really thinking of just pretending the latter 2 show do not exist and never looking at the set list,lol. Either way, expecting to have my mind blown no matter what. It will be the first time I have seen a NIN show in that small of a venue. The Starlight in KC only held about 7k for the NINJA tour though.

    The Joint is a fantastic venue! The acoustics are amazing. Your mind will be blown for sure.

    In somewhat related news, reports of mass suicides among Vegas ticket scalpers

    This is really the only way to go. I tend to look at set lists from other shows and become enraged. The two shows I went to last year didnít include Somewhat Damaged and I was upset

    As long as thereís a couple different songs a night and maybe a debut or two of things not played last year from NTAE and Add Violence (Not Anymore and Dear World are both begging for it) then Iíll be happy with the sets. 3 nights of NIN in a relatively small venue in under a week is a dream come true for me. If any show is likely to get weirder with it set-wise, this is probably it, but regardless Iím just so excited. I went from thinking Iíd see no NIN shows this summer to planning on seeing 3. This is too expensive and ridiculous and impulsive and I donít care, I know itíll feel worth it at the end.

    The thought of driving out of Vegas Saturday morning knowing thereís another nin show that night makes my brain hurt a little. I may have to convince my boyfriend to drive back after the show. My concern is the same as others - the set list is not that different from show to show. However, thereís nothing I enjoy more than a nin show so Iím torn.

    I know this is a great venue acoustically but has anyone else had a bad experience in terms of the crowd? When i saw them here during Tension it was easily one of the worst crowd experiences of my life. Maybe itís the partly obnoxious Vegas drunks but I was pretty frustrated.

    I was front and center in October, and the crowd was great.

    Same. It was one of the easiest rail experiences I've had (in terms of physical comfort).

    how early did you have to get there to get rail? Also, for you rail masters, what do you do about your water/alcohol situation? Or is that a sacrifice that must be made in order to obtain rail?

    I rolled in around noon and was maybe the 15th person. But then upgraded my ticket from there.

    There will be about 50 VIP tickets that get early entry. So you'll be behind that group of people no matter what, unless you have a VIP ticket.

    I had a couple of beers in the afternoon and then just waited until the show.

    I get there early (I need to keep some secrets...). I do not drink any alcohol on concert days. However, although I do enjoy drinks (absinthe and Irish Whisky are my favs!), even when going to a "regular" concert (non-NIN, non-GA and/or non-rail), I just don't drink for a variety of reasons that I won't bore people with.

    Water of course is another thing. Water is really important when sitting out (especially, say all day in Bakersfield, CA weather last July). It's a judgment call when to stop drinking water to not need to use the restroom. My rule of thumb is usually to start reducing substantially by 2 p.m. and then by 3 or 4, nothing but a few sips. Last actual bathroom run depends on when security is saying they are going to let people in. What is hard is no water available when at the rail as it gets really hot sometimes and there is really no way to purchase any water (or anything else) when up on the rail. I really don't get why at some places (like the Joint) they can't have a server come down front to sell water between the opener and main act.

    Also, it's important to learn about the venue. At some, it's really not possible to go walk somewhere mid-day for food or water, so packing food may be necessary. Cushions to sit on are nice too, if you are able to get them back out to a vehicle or hotel room before entering the venue.

    Looking so forward to the Vegas shows!

    Ticket secured for Saturday! Just double-checked nintourhistory, and this will be my first time seeing two full NIN shows back to back (I'm not counting the Jimmy Kimmel Live mini-concert). I may actually decide to chill on the Saturday show and just watch from a comfortable spot... though I'm sure once I'm in the venue my instincts to get as close to the stage as possible will kick in.

    If it requires convincing, then he's not the man for you!

    Give him a hundred bucks and tell him to go to Palamino. You get a show and so does he.
