    Aragon on Twitter said tickets are GA and will be “$99 plus applicable fees”.

    The Aragon Ballroom has a capacity of 5,000 & will be general admission (similar to the Wave Goodbye 2009 layout).

    So, I did a bad thing, and looked up flights for the show...


    IF there are still GA tickets available for online sale, I could actually maybe afford to fly to Chicago. But there's no way I could fly there just to stand in line, and then fly there again for the show.

    I can't make the in-person sale as I have to be somewhere else in the physical world during that time. Anyone going willing to buy 2 extra tickets for one or both shows?

    What I'm not sure on is this: the bottom of the nin tour page says "limited quantities of tickets will be available for sale via all normal ticket purchasing channels, including online, at a later date" while the ticketmaster page says "Limited quantities of tickets may be released via normal ticketing channels, subject to availability, at a later date to be announced." Will be available and may be released subject to availability are two different things.

    with the price point and the fact that i just bought the $175 bundle, i will definitely only be attending one of these shows. i really wish there was a $50 ticket level for this but i get why there's not.

    Anyone coming in from out of town to wait in line? I'm going to megabus up. Would love to hang out with some folks afterwards.

    I did chicago last year and it's not the closest now but if was a blast of a trip and I did not spend enough time there. I only went to riot the NIN was playing. If I can't get Memphis tix I will be trying online for this and or Dallas. This being ga helps its cause.

    If someone in Chicago is able to get 2 extra tickets, I would be forever grateful.

    For 99% I'm in for these two. Always wanted to do a gig in the US. Never been in Chicago and this is the best option for me (flight costs, duration flight, venue prices).

    Edit: flight + hotel booked prices are still cheap now.

    If anyone can get one extra ticket for each show at the Aragon I would appreciate it, as I haven't been in Chicago in a while, love the city and those dates are really only one of two options I have to possible attend this tour. If you are willing and able to help, PM me.
    Thanks,
    Joe

    These shows just keep tempting me, and really just because it's just a big GA pit. I was lucky enough to go here for the Wave Goodbye tour and those two nights were on the top of my "best show" list. Also, the food was great.

    Ok, I'll bite, if anyone is able to get an extra floor GA ticket for both dates, PM me. If not, and there aren't any floor GA tickets that make it to online sales, it just wasn't meant to be.

    I missed the Wave Goodbye show (something I'll never forgive myself for), so I need to make it to one of these shows somehow. If anyone is willing to get 2 extra GA/Floor tickets for either date, please PM me.

    I'm pretty sure GA covers the whole building, it's not split up into floor & balcony.

    I'd really love to make it to this show and be able to get all the way up front. I've only ever been able to see the shows in the past from like a mile a way, so never able to get the full effect of being that close. I saw The Dreaming (Stabbing Westward) at the Double Door a few years ago and was right up at the stage and was constantly getting crushed by the crowd behind me. Hoping for something like that again - it hurt so fucking good LOL! I cant even imagine that scenario with NIN and the better stage presence!

    Wasn't sure, figured since the prices are all the same that it was set up like that, but wanted to specify just in case.

    Where is the info about the line starting at 8AM? Not doubting that, just thinking there may be other important info I haven't read yet. I looked on the ticketmaster link in the first post, but didn't see that stated?

    This is such a terrible plan. I'm worried there will be fights and innocent people thrown out, especially with the Chicago scalper crew combined with this lack of a plan. Considering just waiting for the online sale.

    positive for this venue is, that all tickets are general admission and all standings. so, rare/good/special seats bought by scalpers is no issue.

    If anyone could pick me up 2 tix for either night, doesn’t matter which one, I would be eternally grateful. I’m from MN so i won’t be able to wait in line for the physical sale but I would pay back anyone who could get me those in full + interest for your trouble. PM me NIN friends!
