Im so fucking there! I knew they would play a London gig, Love the Scala, its about the same size as the legendary (sadly deceased) London Astoria.
Tickets will sell out in about 20 seconds. This is going to be a hard one to get tickets for.
Astoria gigs sold out in 5 minutes in 2005, so this probably wont be much different.
Wonder if there will be any sightings of Alan Moulder and Flood?!

Awesome news! Nice small venue!

wiki says about 1500 cap, but that must be the whole venue because there is no way you'd get 1500 people in that main room. can't be more that 700?

its hard to tell from the pictures and i've never been there but it looks pretty small (http://www.scala-london.co.uk/scala/photographs.php#). Possibly even smaller than the Electric factory in Philly where I saw them last. Just hope I can get off work at a decent time..

Okay, this would be the best birthday ever ever ever, but (here comes my old friend, reality) fuck them. Announcing it 2 weeks before the whole event after I spent my well saved money on my holiday in Berlin... No cheap flights. Booking accommodation in the last second, in fucking London, is not the best either.

Next year, next year!

Man, I am so ready for this show but I know I'm going to spend the next 48 hours feeling anxious about whether I'll get tickets or not. How do things like this work, is it a case of just being logged in and ready to go at 5pm and hoping for the best? If we're all clicking on 'purchase' at the same time, how does it work out who will get a ticket and who wont?

This is what I mean; will they allocate it to the people with the highest bandwith/fastest internet connection, or is it just random? And will the 'on-sale' button just appear on the tour.nin.com site at 5pm, or will you have to refresh? Argh, ticket stress!

Just checked my account settings - all good
As I'll be at work I booked a meeting room from 16:30 so I'm not bothered by folk and their stupid questions (haha)
Got a workmate to attend this 'supposed meeting' to help me out

I'll worry about changing flights and asking for another day off if I'm successful. One step at a time...

This should be limited to existing members of the site only, close the new registrations for a short while and for people who registered prior to 2010 or something.

I only say this as I registered in 2007 (part of the Spiral membership) so Its a very biased comment.

Its going to be some rush at 5PM.

I was standing outside the Astoria the whole night from 3am to get those tickets... there was no online sale only the astoria box office which opened at 9am .... that was a fun evening-morning outside the venue :)

More importantly - the tickets are name tagged using your NIN.com details and picked up using your driving license/passport, so there will me NO touting or reselling. The terms and conditions seem to state that if you buy TWO tickets - then BOTH people are expected to attend to pick up the tickets. If both people do NOT turn up, the tickets will NOT be released.

Got my local t-shirt printers to knock me up a t-shirt - cost 15. Fittingly, the end product is a track off the album. "Disappointed". It turns out they've sold me a t-shirt and stuck on some designs, rather than making a proper tshirt like you'd buy at a gig. Hopefully it'll look a bit better after a couple of washes...anyway, this was what I had done:-

Maybe so, but there'll still be casual fans signing up on the off chance, and almost certainly taking tickets out of the hands of people like us how inhabit these boards on a daily basis. Doesn't seem right to me.

Scorpius - I take your point, but knowing that NIN do a lot of presales through the NIN.com site, and knowing they've started touring again, you'd think that you'd have maybe taken a couple of minutes a few weeks ago, to sign up again as this'll be more on your radar than the casual fan who happens to see it mentioned on nme.com or wherever, and signs up on the day. This is a bit unique admittedly, as it's one of the few, if not the only NIN shows to be sold only through NIN.com.

Opinions will vary, no biggie.

Got my pc and laptop side by side logged in in case one of them is shite at the vital moment!

Anyway, to everyone on here who's trying - good luck!!

You know each ticket is unique to the buyer. You can't buy four hoping you'll get one unless they're all on the same account. Please don't do this unless you know you all want to go, because the tickets can't be resold.

If you live locally and couldn't get in, it might be worth turning up at the venue anyway. There'll be people turning up without their plus ones, or forgetting the IDs or whatever.

Massive bloody sigh. I knew we were in for trouble when they posted it on the official Facebook page - just the word in the community via the NIN.com news item and account emails would have sold the place out, without advertising to millions of assorted douchbags (I'm sure most of them are perfectly nice and not remotely Hitleresque people, but it makes me feel better to think of them thusly). I desperately wanted to go - aside from being my first NIN show, it would have been my first proper concert ever. Full stop.

No - your entire party must be with you at the time you pick up your NIN.com presale tickets as they will be checked against ID's and scanned right away as you enter the venue.

I still can't quite believe what happened. It's weird that nobody else I know (even Internet-know) got tickets.

There is a very minor chance that my +1 cannot make it now... I will update in due course but it may be available to some lucky ETSer.

The question is, who do you choose as your plus 1? I will gladly pay the ticket price and a night of drinks for us both!

I'll match that and throw in a 'steak meal' (to quote Del Trotter!).:D

It's not that strange for a venue's capacity to vary depending on the configuration setup. They'll definitely have to put a barricade up, for one.

I booked tickets for this show without asking for another day off, I didn't want to jinx anything...

So I bought my Line Manager a coffee and a muffin today then I asked for the day off, it seems to have done the trick! When I told her what it was for she just laughed at me (seriously, she laughed AT me), she must think I'm a total joke! LMAO! I have the BEST line manager! *grin*

I would have been properly fucked and in tears had she said no!

Now I can properly get excited for this! (and grit my teeth and curse at the charges for changing my flight)

8 days to go!!!

i expect it's more for continuing festivals, i can't see they'd break the setlist pattern for one show, and as a press event.

The venue has an odd config actually... whatever you do don't drink too much before the gig (if you where lucky enough to get a ticket) as the toilets are 2 flights of stairs away, so a wee break during the show will mean it will be impossible to get back to where you were standing. I actually don't like the venue much but I would trade my left nut for a ticket... maybe. ;-) I tried... and like so many failed. I think I have just about recovered from trying...just. :eek:

To add insult to injury... Green Day just announced a pre reading/leeds show.... at the 4000 cap. Brixton Academy. I would have far preferred NIN to play there to be honest.

Is anyone actually planning to head down (or up) to London in the hope of being a plus 1? I understand names are on the tickets for the leading party!?

It would be a 3 hour train trip for me, with, work at 9AM (first train out at 5AM).

The insult to injury would be, missing out twice, however, if I don't take the chance am I kicking myself afterwards...

Kinda over the fact that I didn't get tickets. Would have been cool, but I went into it knowing the likelihood of snagging tickets was pretty low. Fingers crossed for a 2014 Brixton date/dates.

I have a feeling this will be a warm up for Tension too. The site you purchased the tickets from had a not so subtle "Nine Inch Nails: Tension 2013" header.

I'm sure there will be other dates in London in the future but I still get a little pang of disappointment every time i read this thread.. ah well, at least the proper tension tour tickets won't be such a crap shoot.

I wouldn't hold my breath... the Tension production is scaled for arenas, it's not even going to fit in a club like that. And they wouldn't ship it all the way across the ocean just for a warmup when the tour is in the states...

We should form a Reading and Leeds- couldn't get Scala tickets so I'm not going to let it piss me off group!

I think Trent just wanted to play an intimate show for the fans, to try out how certain songs work live and to make everyone who didn't get a ticket jealous enough so they'll buy a ticket the next time NIN plays the UK. Doing a Tension warm-up show, mid-tour in an entirely different setting wouldn't make much sense.

I have no sympathy for the people that are saying 'now i gotta pay to change flights', or 'cutting it close to get back to XXX' ... i live 15 min from Scala and didn't tickets! :(

I might hang out there for the day (like 10,000 others) and hope for a 'random +1 needed'.

/rant off - i'm just jealous! i know that all the people that make the special exceptions to get to the concert will feel extra special for having pulled it off! Enjoy and i'll be looking for the videos after the show.

They don't necessarily need the entire Tension 2013 production to play the same songs they'll be playing for the Tension tour in an intimate club setting though, do they? Seems like a really good idea to me, and the "Surprise!" nature of the announcement gives me hope. Well, not really, because i didn't get tickets, but still..yeah.

I know what you are saying, it must be frustrating to be 15 mins away. It's a shame in a way it's not a touch bigger. It's almost like double the size and we would have all got in (the die hard fans). Something will come along next year or year after. I'm thinking Leeds will be good, the light show looks impressive and a festival feel might be cool. I've always seen NIN in arenas.

Common songs, however, doesn't make it a Tension tour warm-up show... anymore than a common setlist would make it a Wave Goodbye club tour extension.

08-13-2013, 09:55 PM
Well then... But does that mean 800 tickets were available or was it less??
perhaps they limited the capacity for this show to 800 in order to make room for some production? just a thought..

If by "production" you mean an iPad screen then sure, because that's basically all you can fit onto that stage.

Yeah the only UK mainland NIN dates are reading & leeds, which are 90 for a day ticket - I interpret this scala thing as one for the fans

Just thinking how amazing it would be if Trent did a run of 5 nights at the scala or similar. The format will be interesting. I'm wondering or this will be live on Zane (Radio 1) or something. Can't picture a film crew but can imagine a radio stream.

Interesting, however, surely out of 800 tickets there is only going to be something like 10% made available? Would they re open sales for such a small quantity?? I understand no money is being made from this so they do need to 'max' it out.
