As i mentioned in other thread, the golden state theater has been a client in the past, so theres a minor oppurtunity for me to film that performance. The owner really likes to shoot the events. Either way im super stoked. That place is quite tiny and has great acoustics. Downtown monterey is so small i coupd imagine traffoc being derailed just for the lines that form naturally at trent shows.

Seeing as Coachella is streamed live on Youtube, live recordings of this tour are guaranteed - though does anyone know a good way to rip the live youtube streams? I don't want to rely on Coachella's "best of" not including HTDA.

Alright, anyone who's ever been to The Vic in Chicago. How does that place work? Is it like The Aragon where it's all GA including the Balcony or do shows typically have Reserved Balcony seating and GA Floor?

Looks like I will be heading to Boston. Wooooo!!!

As for modlife handling their presale ticketing, I am not a huge fanof theirs. I am hoping that they will be able to handle the traffic.

The main balcony is normally general admission, but it is pretty cramped/steep and has seats. I’m not sure about the side little balconies. On the plus side the acoustics are not too bad there. In my opinion it is a much better experience than the Aragon, but it is 1/4 the size too.

Its really nice this is coming to monterey... i was begining to think i wasnt going to see them on this round. Kind of odd to think of trent in a seat only venue but... any of you guys heading out here?

Yeah my first concert in Chicago was at the Vic Theater, it was Jonsi in 2010 and there isn't a bad spot to see the band in the whole venue in my opinion. The stage is elevated enough that people on the floor all the way in the back can see what's going on and the venue is small enough that those in the balcony feel close enough. It's almost hard to explain.

I may not be fully behind this project but the idea of seeing Trent Reznor live again in such an intimate venue is really exciting as well. May have to look into this for next week when they go on sale....

....though I'm even more interested in all these cryptic possible hints at NIN live again as well.

Has anyone seen a show at the Sound Academy (Toronto)? I have read quite a few bad reviews. This will be the only show I can make it to so I will be going regardless. Hopefully someone will have something good to say about the place. I haven't been able to find the capacity of the place either?

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but it's an ugly venue. I'm actually very disappointed that this was the venue chosen for TOR, but I won't complain too much as there are a bunch of factors that go into these decisions.

The SA now generally employs a two tier ticket system (GA/VIP). VIP allows you to the upper balcony where it is easier to get drinks and has actual sloped seating. Either way, it won't stop the general terrible acoustics of the SA.

Here's hoping HTDA's team can figure out a way to deliver the best sound I've heard out of the SA ever.

Well, I'll just have to hope against hope to get in on the general public sale. Can't do the presale, because I may very well be on tour with someone else by the end of April. Wouldn't want to buy a ticket I can't use. Poo.

Thanks for the info. It won't keep me from making the 4 hour trip from Michigan since I have faith TR can still pull off a great show. The NIN crew did manage to make the Aargon ballroom in Chicago sound good.

Question about the balcony: If I purchased the VIP tickets, it sounds like I would at the very least be able to see the stage better. Have you noticed that the acoustics are any worse up in the balcony or about the same?


Edit : I just noticed a couple of people are already voicing their concerns about the venue to Rob on twitter. It must be pretty bad.

AgentofChaos
02-22-2013, 11:43 AM
For any Toronto concert-goer, the Sound Academy has been the kiss of death for some time now. Book anywhere but there is pretty much the motto. I will say that they have done some renovations and made some improvements (it used to be MUCH worse, if you can believe that). Problem is, they either have by far the cheapest contracts and/or the best booking agent in the world, as they basically get all of the best non arena shows in the city now. As a result I'm forced to go there much more than I would like, and it's a shame too because in the summer it's an awesome view of the city and nice to be down by the water. They also have ideal smoking conditions for a toker like myself. A few bands have managed to surpass the acoustic issues since they've opened it up a bit more, TV on the Radio being one of them. I've also seen pretty decent shows from Queens and Them Crooked Vultures there, as well as Deftones, M83, and Alexisonfire.

At the end of the day, of course I would have preferred the highly underrated and vastly underused Kool Haus, and this is far from ideal but it's manageable. Just don't expect to be able to move around much, don't drink or use the bathroom (no soap no hope you touch your dick you wash your hands! if you've ever taken a piss there you will get that joke), don't expect to be able to go out to your car to dump any merch/poster (so fucking stupid), and expect for it to be filled with way more people than it can be expected to reasonably hold for that kind of venue, and you'll make it through just fine. Sometimes the hate for the building becomes larger than life, but it's really just another poorly thought out venue. I think if they didn't book SOO many shows and gave some other places a shot at some decent acts, their reputation wouldn't be nearly as bad. That, and if they sold a lot less tickets (or if you are seeing an act that won't sell out), as I've also been there when they cut the floor in half and it is a million fucking times better that way.

Not sure about time yet, but I'm positive it will be through Modlife. From the tour site:

"We're working with a new partner, Modlife, for HTDA ticketing, merch, and album sales. We think this will lead to a better purchasing experience all around."

It sucks that the NJ show is right outside NYC, because to get to either one would cost as much, if not more, than the ticket itself. I mean, I should be glad I could potentially get there with a combination of train and bus, but it's just not going to happen.
Good luck to everyone else. :)

Noon = midday = 12:00pm

Local Time = Whatever timezone the venue on sale is in. Example: Boston is EST therefore those tickets will go on sale at 12:00pm EST.

Doing math is hard. ;)

A couple of Twitter updates from the band:

"We're finalizing extensive presale details. Presales begin tomorrow at noon local time, except Pomona, which begins March 7th."

"You'll need a free HTDA account for presale tix. If you pre-ordered the album you already have one. If not, sign up: https://modlife.com/store/create_account.php … (https://t.co/acR8YzHG6B) "

Oh, duh. That makes sense. Chicago isn't listed yet. But yes, as I recall from past shows, we probably won't need to pay those additional fees on top of the original ticket price. So that's a plus. Looks like I can guess about $30 per ticket.

* We do not guarantee tickets to additional shows which could be added after the official tour announcement, but we will generate an opportunity for HTDA members to reserve tickets if possible. Information will be posted on our website if and when this happens.
* All ticket sales are final. No refunds. No exchanges. No name transfers. No exceptions. Please do not purchase tickets for a show you are not certain you can attend.
* Reselling or "handing off" of HTDA tickets will result in the revocation of all future registered member privileges directly from HTDA/Modlife. If the registered HTDA member does not use the ticket to immediately enter the venue with his or her party, the terms of sale have been violated and the tickets forfeited without a refund.
SEATING
* For venues with reserved seating, seat locations are revealed after the ticket pre-sale period concludes when Modlife posts final seat locations to the purchasing member's HTDA account.
* HTDA reserves the best publicly available seats in the house for HTDA member tickets, for reserved seating venues that's starting from the first rows on the floor and extending back - you can be assured that your seats will be within the best 8% of publicly available tickets.
* HTDA reserved seating tickets are allocated by the day/time the pre-sale ticketing order was placed.
DISTRIBUTION
* Tickets will be distributed at the venue box office on the day of the show only. We will not mail your tickets in advance of the show. No exceptions.
* For general admission shows, registered members who purchase through this HTDA pre-sale will be allowed early entry with their party 15 minutes before doors open to the general public.
* For reserved seating shows, ticket locations are pre-determined so arriving at the box office early will not increase your chances of better seats.
* You must show a valid government-issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, school ID, etc.) to collect your tickets at the box office. No exceptions.
* The HTDA/Modlife member whose account was used to purchase the tickets must be present to collect the tickets on the day of the show. No exceptions.
* THERE WILL BE NO WILL CALL NAME CHANGES FOR ANY SHOWS.
If you have any technical problems with the pre-sale process, please contact support at htda@modlife.com. Your e-mail will be answered in the order it was received.

Nope. Had a ticket in the cart for Toronto. It said you could "Continue shopping." So I decided to try to add an Apollo ticket instead of checking out (bad idea). Tried to add an Apollo ticket, but the system added ANOTHER Toronto ticket instead. Beautiful.

Then the system wouldn't let me remove the extra Toronto ticket from the cart. So I decided to check out anyway. Gave me a credit card error. Sent me back, and then said it was sold out. FFS

Surprised and sorry to see so many people had problems. I got 2 for the NJ show and didn't even feel like I was going at a blistering pace, but I always have good luck with these presales, getting a pair of tix to NIN @ the Bowery Ballroom proved that. The disclaimer on the site said that they can only sell 8% of tix, so if it is a 2000 seat venue thats only 160 tix not to mention that people were buying in pairs of 2 and 4 this time, hope everyone has better luck when this comes to NIN tix in the (near) future.

For those who are disappointed, assuming what the small text says is true... the amount of pre-sale tickets they had available is somewhere between 5-10% of the total tickets.

I hate to be the optimistic one, but I think Friday may be easier (and less frustrating given that TM holds onto the tics while you pay).

The issue with that is people would add them to their cart, then leave them there until their cart expired in ten minutes. Then ten minutes later there were tickets available again for a moment, until someone snapped them up. I'm guessing that's what they're trying to avoid with this system.

Hopefully they will make all the necessary tweaks before the NIN presales go live. Good luck everyone trying for public onsale.

ON FACEBOOK

Presales begin in less than an hour for New York, New Jersey, Boston, and Toronto shows. Followed by Chicago, then Denver, then the California shows. Be sure to read the instructions and make sure you have a free HTDA account set up prior to presale time:http://tour.destroyangels.com/ (http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Ftour.destroyangels.com%2F&h=xAQF4A8eQ&s=1)

Remember, the presales are only for a small portion of tickets that we have direct access to, so don't worry if you miss out; you'll still be able to purchase tickets. Once a presale has sold out, we'll immediately activate the general on-sale "buy" button on our tour page, directing you to purchase tickets from the venue ticketing system.

So you think people who type slower should be discriminated against?

I had them in my cart for less than two minutes before it updated as no longer available. If you can't checkout in ten minutes, and someone else is sitting there F5ing away, then yes, they should get the damn tickets. On one of the NIN shows I got in after about 40 minutes of sitting on the site F5ing. Perceverence rewarded.

Sorry you didn't get pre-sale tickets. My post was merely pointing out that ticketing comes down to timing and luck. TR has always paid mindful attention to his fans regarding ticketing. I don't think there is more that they could be doing or I believe TR would have had it done. You used to actually have to go to the box office or a physical ticketing outlet and get in an actual queue to get tickets. Whoever was in front in line got the tickets, whoever was in back didn't. No one should have to tell you to pay for them "NOW", it is implicit.

Not only did TR encourage everyone to make an account and get their affairs in order, but he also hinted at the tickets being available at another ticketing outlet for presale (and provided links to their site on the live presale page). Not to mention that public on sale is the day after tomorrow. That is three opportunities to get tickets. Back in the day you used to only have one. Not to mention all the safe guards he is putting in place to keep the tickets in the hands of fans. What more do you want from the man? He can't be a pioneer every flawed industry. Timing and luck. Good luck to you.

I would like to thank the ETS members from Eastern Time Zone for their ticket buying advice. I had no problems getting a pair of tickets for Chicago. To the Mountain and Pacific Time Zone ETSers, make sure you are logged in and have all your account info up to date and make sure your credit card number is memorized ;)

Have your credit card number copy and pasted and ready to go. :-)

rorycash- you don't need to garble his balls either, jesus. there were some inherent flaws with the system here and it's valid to point them out- some people were ready to pay immediately, but still couldn't check out their tickets from in their cart due to severe site lag. honestly, that's the one good thing about ticketmaster- those tickets are reserved until you pay or you blow it.

Gladcarrot! Thanks again for the Aragon boots man!

I, like many others, had two tickets in my cart but was unable to purchase them. After refreshing for a handful of minutes I realized that the "Presale" button on the left said "Sold Out." So I clicked on the "On Sale" button to the right, and BAM!, I've got a pair of tickets through Jam Productions. Unfortunately I won't be the first in at The Vic, but I will be the first of the non NIN presales.

@frankie teardrop (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/members/889-frankie-teardrop) I didn't experience any site lag myself. Refreshed exactly at noon. Added one show to my cart, continued shopping, added the next show to the cart and checked out. I understand that others might not have had the same experience. I had missed out on a different pre-sale today as I mentioned. I attribute it to timing. I understand that the importance of feedback to facilitate change. Feedback doesn't only need to be negative. Stating some positive feedback doesn't mean I'm garbling his balls. The system was designed to sell tickets. They sold. We can continue the discussion via PM if you wish. Some people might want to stay on topic.

In the digital age payment means securing the sale. I have crap that sits in my Amazon cart for a rainy day. Until I've paid it isn't mine and if Amazon runs out of stock I'm out of luck. Tickets are just the same. It is a luxury to have Ticketmaster hold tickets for you while you finish the transaction, and they charge dearly for it.

My post wasn't meant as boastful, solely as a counterbalance of positive feedback to all the negative feedback.

Sorry you didn't get pre-sale tickets. My post was merely pointing out that ticketing comes down to timing and luck. TR has always paid mindful attention to his fans regarding ticketing. I don't think there is more that they could be doing or I believe TR would have had it done. You used to actually have to go to the box office or a physical ticketing outlet and get in an actual queue to get tickets. Whoever was in front in line got the tickets, whoever was in back didn't. No one should have to tell you to pay for them "NOW", it is implicit.

Not only did TR encourage everyone to make an account and get their affairs in order, but he also hinted at the tickets being available at another ticketing outlet for presale (and provided links to their site on the live presale page). Not to mention that public on sale is the day after tomorrow. That is three opportunities to get tickets. Back in the day you used to only have one. Not to mention all the safe guards he is putting in place to keep the tickets in the hands of fans. What more do you want from the man? He can't be a pioneer every flawed industry. Timing and luck. Good luck to you.

No worries! I never once aimed my critique at HTDA or TR. It was at Modlife. I'm not complaining as so much recommending a fix to the system, or the inclusion of that note in the fine print to let people know that it's a first pay-first served basis.

Many people assumed the ticketing system worked similar to that of Ticketmaster and took their time once the tickets were in the cart. A little heads up next time around could hopefully steer a few angry commenters into a shoulder shrug of being too slow.

I work with IT design and was just commenting on what I figured was a flaw in the payment process. Consider it a constructive critique to Modlife, not to HTDA.

(Oh and I snagged two from the other outlet, at an additional $25 bucks mind you)

@rorycash (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=534) - positive feedback doesn't mean boasting about your luck and constantly praising trent for his innovative thinking, especially given the primary source of frustration is an obvious flaw in the modlife system that should be addressed. it has nothing to do with TR or the band, which is why i found it a bit bizarre for you to bring that into the discussion.

you're one of the few who had luck, while the majority had issues. i'm glad it worked out for you honestly. it didn't for a lot of people and the obvious problem was selling tickets out from under people's carts. that is a problem and should be addressed. maybe my word choice was a bit harsh but you're in the minority of issueless people so that doesn't necessarily qualify a successful ticketing system. it's one thing for no tickets to be available- it's another entirely when you have them secured and can't get to the payment screen without them being sold out from under you. just to be clear i didn't hesitate at all once they were in my cart and this still happened.

and that's the last i'll write on that, as i just got two tickets thanks to @halo33 (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=376) via ticketmaster. i still can't seem to pull anything up if i go there myself, but bless!

I give the band a lot of credit for having the regular ticket venues put up their tickets after the presales sold out. Clearly they knew they didn't have a lot of tickets and didn't want anyone to be disappointed today. Well played HTDA.

I am extremely disappointed in modlife but I knew they sucked going into this. I just didn't know they sucked this bad. No worries, I got a ticket so I'm happy. I do worry about the chaos that will be NIN presales through modlife.

Well obviously these tickets weren't "secured" or you would've been able to purchase them. Also, perhaps it's a good time to stop and wonder how many of us would've even had tickets in our cart if this system was run in a manner in which the tickets were held for a period of time once in the cart.

of course, @LexTron6K (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=1620) . it's obvious there were very few tickets. my point is simply this: i find it considerably less frustrating to be told there are no tickets available at all then being able to easily put two in your cart, get to the billing page, and then find out that you don't have them after all, especially when you throw site lag into the equation. that's all.

I'm still a bit confused how this works. The tickets I bought through the venue's reseller were billed as 'presale'. So do they come with the same perks as the Modlife ones? Or is it a separate presale? Will I still get quickly ushered inside the venue after I pick mine up? Maybe I should contact Modlife.

This was posted on the nin forums today for what it's worth. 02/19/13 6:39 PMslykememberJoined: 02/19/13Posts: 1Hello all - I figured I would share a little info with everyone regarding a possible NIN tour. Nothing is set in stone, but I'll just say that a NIN fan presale ticketing demo site has recently been created (I have seen it for myself). It's fully functional and lists three 2013 tour dates for testing purposes. It even lists details such as - your name will be custom printed on the ticket, will be held at will call, and that you and your guest will be wrist-banded and escorted immediately into the venue (in the interest of keeping tickets in the hands of our fans). Also, a separate page for How To Destroy Angels has recently been created as well. Trust me, I was quite shocked by this. I was at the 2009 Bowery show and thought that was it. Then again, dozens of bands have called it quits, only to reunite down the road. Again, this is speculation on my part, with evidence showing that (I can only assume) someone from the band/mgmt is working with this popular ticket presale company for a possible tour. I will say this - These pages are created as demos, and I have yet to come across one that didn't eventually go live. But then again, the demo could have been ordered just in case, and ends there. We'll see.

Thanks! Guys - for real: I was just about to buy for this show, too, until I thought I'd be spending too much. Have at it!

I just hope all goes well with the Pomona pre-sale since I've now passed on the SF and LV shows. If I can't get tickets to Pomona, I'm going to be really upset with my decision.

What was the point of doing a presale through modlife for 8% of the tickets? Seems almost pointless to me

I'm sure that's the maximum they're allowed to have, in their contracts (with venues? booking agents? i dunno who exactly.)

ive got to get rid of 2 GA tickets for the wellmont theater and ill sell to anyone for $10 less than face to help with the service fee's.

i bought tix immediately not realizing i already have tix for the les claypool duo de twang show that night already. so i grabbed tix for the apollo instead and now have extras. ive been around the board forever, i wouldn't dare rip anyone off. let me know, thanks.

Almost all presales that bands do are no more than 10 percent of the total venue. It is just that there are very few when the venue holds less than 3k people.

Are they printing names on tickets this time around or did you manage to get tix from Ticketmaster?

i got it through the wellmont sale and my name is on it but it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket you'll be asked to show ID proving it. i could contact them about it if you're interested.

they're print at home btw, so they're already in hand. no will call.

Theres a lot of presales where they sell everything outright and just have to have a formal onsale the following day. Bands dont always make these decisions. Trent is just able to negotiate these things because of who he is. Theres a lot of artists who dont even know how much tickets to their shows cost and are shocked sometimes about it.


A lot of the venues hold just around 1,000. Regency in SF holds 1100. HOB Boston is probably 1,000. Fox Pomona is 1700. Paramount in Denver is 1800 give or take. Golden State theatre in Monterey is just under 1000. The Pearl depending on the set up can be 1200 or 2300. So if its 8% of 1000 for example, HTDA sold 80 tickets give or take for some of these shows.

Glad I could help. There was certainly some weirdness today, and I really hope they work out all these kinks for the impending NIN tour. Was a good test run I guess.

I'd double check with the venue. I think if your name is printed on the ticket it might require a matching ID at the door.

halo33 you are a life saver! I couldn't get them any other way - was shut out of pre-sale and couldn't get in later from HDTA or Ticketmaster. Probably the worst seats I've ever had to see Trent but still so much better than nothing. Thank you! Eternally grateful.

Or maybe not many people knowing about the TM/LN ticket sales being live already and thinking that they're up on Friday 10am local time. I know that if I weren't an ETS regular and checking the boards and discussions, I wouldn't have known that tix for the shows were already up at TM/LN. Just my thoughts.

the tickets were bought through the wellmont theater ticket link not the HTDA presale. after calling them today they said as long as the tickets are in hand they will not be checking any names to ID's. only when picking up will call tickets do you need a matching ID.

moral of the story - still have 2 GA for wellmont i have to sell that i'll give for face minus the service fees ($100). let me know.

so I guess Apollo was already sold out before the general sale even began? lovely. guess its time to go to the scalpers. I know I'm just ranting about the obvious here, but things like this really suck the fun out of going to concerts.

I didn't manage to get ticket during the pre sale (I was messing up), but when the general sale started (directly after the pre sale) I managed to get a balcony ticket.

So, Chicago sold out during the pre-sale I take it? It was never listed on Ticketmaster and now the HDA site says it's completely sold out.

I'm not sure how you compete against the curious coincidence of the general sale selling out immediately followed by hundreds of tickets going up for 2-3x the cost on StubHub

These sites are not reliable. Ticketmaster keeps tickets in your cart while you checkout. These other sites always crash.

Does anyone else think it's strange that this tour (Denver specifically) hasn't sold out twice over by now? I wasn't able to get presale tix, but I did get a pretty decent pair 20 minutes later. That same day after I got off work, I decided to check to see what was available and to my surprise, I was able to grab a pair in the 5th row! I looked again today and there are still some great tickets left. So what gives? Did the NIN announcement hurt sales or are people just genuinely lackadaisical about the whole HTDA tour? I really don't get it seeing as Chicago and NY sold out with the quickness. The argument that Denver is a small market doesn't cut it either, with Boston and CA shows still with availability. I don't get it. Any ideas???
