View Full Version : What's the longest and farthest distance you have traveled to see Nine Inch Nails?

This question occurred to me after reading Hazekiah's posts about following Marilyn Manson for about an entire tour. I also wondered if this would also belong in the Nine Inch Nails section, but thought of making do with this section for now, as it's about attending NIN concerts.

As for me, I suppose the farthest for me was the second NIN show I've attended at Nikon at the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York. And well, it would be rather interesting to see what would be said from somebody that saw Nine Inch Nails as much as Hazekiah saw Marilyn Manson. I also suppose that the NIN Tour History site would be very useful for this topic.

@Hazekiah (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=1162) - I thought that you'd like this topic as well.

Nothing crazy. Just Philly to Barclays in Brooklyn for Tension. Would travel though without a doubt if they didn't do Philly shows.

Probably the 9 hour flight (5437 miles) to LA. But I know lots of people that have travelled to the UK from Australia and vice versa.

Driving to Charlotte is the worst in my opinion.

About 3.5 hours via ferry, bus and sky train.

This summer will be my longest. 6hr greyhound then meet a friend and 2/3 hr drive to the festival ground.

I took 2 greyhound busses (before wifi) 12 hours one way for a NIN weekend. With my 8 inch mohawk up.
I also bussed from Philly to Buffalo (11 hour bus) then catch a ride with my Buffalo friend up to Toronto (another 2 or so hours), and then drove to Cleveland (about 3 hours) for the next show, then bussed back to Philly to take a train up to Newark (2 hours) right after the Cleveland show. I am bussing up to drive up to Toronto again in July.

As long as NIN plays Toronto and I live in Philly, I'll be making that trip. Because going to a show is awesome, but going with awesome NIN friends is the best.

Flew from Chicago, IL to St Paul,MN for the Tension tour opener since that was the cheapest option for me to see a Tension show since there wasn't a Chicago date.

I've driven from Tucson, AZ to Vegas to see NIN and to see HTDA. To date, and out of the hundreds of concerts I have seen, these are the only times I have traveled to another state for a concert.

Flew from Chicago to LAX then we drove down to Palm Desert. Twice. So that's 2000 miles to LA, then another 120 miles to Palm Desert.

I also flew from Chicago to Toronto, saw a show there, then drove to Montreal for a show there. But that wasn't as far as California, natch.

The people jumping ponds (aka going overseas for shows) will likely have the longest distance per concert. (Think I just posted the obvious, duhhhhrrr...)

To to add a twist to this thread: last time I slept in my own bed after a a NIN show was the summer 2006 tour. :/ Milwaukee sucks as far as music scene goes, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
So that's 8 years and at least 7 tours ago (depending on what you count as a "tour").

I drove 10 hours to see a chicago show once. Solo. Had never been to the city, and I had nothing else going on so I was like why the fuck not. Outside of that, I usually max out at 5 hours. Anything farther than that and I'm throwing in the towel.

I've had a couple plans that fell through to go to amsterdam over the years sadly, so I guess the farthest distance flying would be Vegas, but that was kind of a I'm fuckin going to vegas right now because I need to type situation, and the show was a happy coincidence.

In September 1995, I flew from Chicago to Philly for the Outside/Dissonance tour stop in Camden. However, it's probably necessary to caveat that my father lived in Philly at the time, and given I was a high school freshman, the trip certainly would not have happened without the parental angle.

Not to hijack the thread, but I think it would also be sort of interesting to hear the shortest distance people have had to travel for a show.

When the Wave Goodbye club shows were announced, I was hoping for the possibility of a Roseland Ballroom (RIP!) date here in NYC, for at that time my apartment literally looked directly out over the roof of the venue. While that wish went unfulfilled, the 0.7 mile walk over to Terminal 5 was a pretty nice consolation prize.

My first time was in 1991, driving with some friends from Tampa to Orlando (85 miles / 136 km). When 1994 rolled around, it seemed natural to go from Tampa to Jacksonville (200 miles / 322 km), but I wasn't able to go from Jacksonville to Miami (344 miles / 553 km) because of work.

I missed out on the Florida club shows in 1995 due to ticket buying logistics, so when I found out about the NIN/Bowie show in Atlanta - it didn't seem like such an absurd idea to drive from Tampa to catch that show (456 miles / 734 km). That's when I think I caught the bug.

When I moved to Atlanta in 1999, it was easier to travel since I wasn't headquartered in the middle of a peninsula and it was the hub city of a major airline. So, I flew from Atlanta to Amsterdam (4395 miles / 7074 km) to catch six European shows.

When NIN announced tour dates in 2007 and were planning to hit one of my favorite places to visit (plus made it super-simple to purchase tickets) it was a no-brainer to fly from Atlanta to Tokyo (6844 miles / 11015 km) to catch six shows in Japan.

If we turn it around, the shortest distance I've had for a show was in 2005 from my place in Atlanta to the Tabernacle (6.3 miles / 10.13 km). You can see the rest of my tour insanity here. (http://nintourhistory.com/profile.php?userid=95)

All the shows I saw from 1999 to 2009 (except sonisphere festival) were in London when I worked there so I went to the gig after work, so the distance would be a tube journey or two. With hindsight I wish I had been more adventurous and caught a few shows in mainland Europe. I certainly could have afforded it from 2005 - 2007 as i didn't have kids and had quite a well paid job, but I just didn't have the mindset of travelling for gigs, spoiled by living in London and feeling everyone should come to me

Birmingham to Los Angeles - 2073 miles. To be fair, the reason for the trip was to visit friends I hadn't seen in too long, but the Tension show was certainly the catalyst for the dates I chose to visit.

I rode on a bus for 9 hours to be at Lolla last year so that I was at the first show back in the States. Then, while moving from Omaha to NYC, I stopped in Cleveland for a Tension show there. I dunno if that counts or not, as it was kinda on the way.

I'll see shows 5 & 6 this summer. And I will have seen them in 6 different states. Which is amusing to me for whatever reason.

Of course I took a few days off to enjoy NYC, but the whole trip was definitely centered around the concert.

my longest distance was a 2 hours flight from Geneva to Copenhagen last spring.
While I was doing the math, I discovered a nice function in the new Google Maps which allows you to calculate the distance between two or more points. Just right click >Measure Distance and create your path

http://i.imgur.com/ycijxwp.jpg

So in total I traveled 6888 km or 4280 miles (lol this map is a good example of the pointless things I do when I can't sleep at night, it's 4AM here).

I usually can't afford to go to more than one show per tour and I usually live somewhere where there's a tour stop but my two farthest -
1. I made it to two fragility shows. I lived in Fullerton, CA and saw them in San Diego. The other show was Anaheim which is the next town over in case you were wondering.
2. Living in the Philadelphia area, I went to one of the NYC wave goodbye shows. Living in the same place I went to see HTDA in Harlem which is the same distance but that's not NIN and I saw Tension in Newark which wasn't as far.

580 kilometers (or 360 miles, an almost six-hour drive in each direction) from Toronto to Grand Rapids, Michigan. But @Dingerz (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=1034) was driving, and she's way more hardcore about doing this, haha. Just a few days before that I went solo to Kanata, Ontario, which is about two thirds as far, but kind of in the opposite direction. Both shows were on the same tour: Lights in the Sky Over North America, second leg, with Boris opening. I was just out of school, underemployed, and had a lot of free time. Ah, memories!

Also did Cleveland in 2005, which is about the same driving distance, but that was part of a longer trip with other stuff planned on either side of the show... had a good time, but I was basically using the sightseeing as an excuse to get a lift and see NIN/QotSA/Autolux.

However because of a massive fuck-up with NIN VIP tickets at the Atlanta NINJA show, NIN management gave quite a few of us amazing seats, put everyone on a bus to get there, let us watch the mic check, and treated us to a meet and greet to get things signed. It was an awesome night! Their management was amazing!

I'll cheat a little bit on this one. In 2005, I was in Switzerland for work, but I decided to extend my stay for the Greenfield Festival in Interlaken (June 24th, 2005). So technically, the distance was 4,000 Miles (from Princeton, NJ). The performance got cancelled day-of when "Die Toten Hosen's" stage props destroyed all of NIN's guitars during a thunderstorm.

I've only seen NIN six times, unfortunately (I will never understand how people can afford to follow a band around the country and see them like 10 times on one tour) so mine isn't too impressive. However, the last time they toured, I caught the St. Paul, MN show, flew out to Portland, OR to attend that show with a friend who lives there, and then planned a vacation in Chicago around the Tinley Park date, so I saw them three times in the course of a year.

Quite a lot. When they came here in Brazil, I had to fly 1100 Miles from my city to São Paulo. Then I went to Berlin, Cardiff, London and Barcelona for the following 2014 tour. Hopefully next year they'll do an UK Tour again so I might see if I can go to every gig, as they've played Somewhat Damaged in the only concert I didn't catch.

I live in a Minneapolis suburb and I have seen them of course here, WI, and IA. I have also seen them in L.A., Winnipeg, Vegas, New Jersey, and New York. I try to find the places where they are playing numerous shows close together so I can see more than one during a vacation.

Winnipeg

Woo-Hoo, Winnipeg! LOL.
I'm unfortunate to have to call that my home town. Least I don't live there anymore though.
Problem with Winnipeg is, I get this urge to go back every couple of years, but once I do and spend more than 2 days, I've had my Winnipeg fill and can't wait to get out and I'm good for a few more years again.

What show in Winnipeg did you see? Was it the 2005 one from the [With_Teeth] tour? I remember there were some guys in the spiral meet & greet/soundcheck that came up from Minneapolis for that show. That was probably one of my highlight NIN moments, was attending that M&G and getting to meet TR. Guess I can't hate on Winnipeg too much then!

Furthest for me would be Vancouver to Chicago for Lollapalooza 2013, which according to google is: 1773 miles / 2853.37 km is the flight distance between these two places

late night bonnaroo 09 but to be honest i traveled there bc phish were playing late night.

getting NIN late night that year as well was an excellent bonus

I've flown from MSP (Minneapolis, MN) to PDX (Portland, OR) see see them, but I have a few friends that live out there and planned my visit around the tour. I flew out to Chicago to see the NIN|SG tour in 2014 and I'm driving down to Chicago again this September for RiotFest. All of the other times were in Minneapolis or St. Paul though.

Nothing too crazy, 14 hour drive once or twice to Vancouver, made a weekend out of it. The rest of the trips were only a few hours drive to the next province or nearby city. That's fun stuff, and I hope to get the chance to do it more :) Edit: I've seen NIN 9 times so far and only 3 of those times were in my city, it's been a lot of great memories road tripping to other places to see them live, some great winter storms we had to pass through in the mountains as well. All well worth it!

I've seen NIN 6 times: Minneapolis in 2000, St. Paul in 2005, Minneapolis in 2008, St. Paul in 2013, Portland in 2013, and Tinley Park (Chicago) in 2014. My 7th time will be Chicago (RiotFest) this year and if they announce a full blown tour in 2018, I'll probably catch two shows on that tour as well.

Curious, to everyone in the US: have you gone to multiple NIN shows but never seen them in your home state? I can't be the only one. 15 shows, 0 in NY.

Let's see. Furthest was LA from MN(almost 2k miles driving), followed by Winnipeg (1k miles). Longest was following from Wisconson to Idaho to Nebraska. Nebraska was brutal and by far my favorite show. Rail on every concert, and Nebraska left my whole chest and stomach a bruised mess. Shortest of course minneapolis and St Paul shows.

Plenty of local shows with the highlight being the Downward Spiral in its entirety at Webster but furthest was going from NYC/CT to Brixton Academy Year Zero show in London.

My furthest was going from the UK to Las Vegas in 2008 for a NIN 'lights in the sky' show and a mini holiday. I remember it snowed when I was there which was kinda weird.

In my 17 years of show going, I have never wanted to see any band as much as NIN. I saw them 6 months ago and will have seen them 6 times by the end of July 2018. I am from Ohio and I'm going to Europe for vacation and stopping through Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin. Was always planning to do the Berlin show (my cousin lives there) and NIN will be in Paris when I am so it works out. I'm so excited.

The trip is still yet to come... but It's in the planning phase currently. So, come June 20th, the furthest I would have traveled for NIN will be this European vacation.
So far I have tickets for London on June 22nd and Paris for June 25th.

Vancouver to London distance is 7,573 km.
Vancouver to Paris is 7,916 km

These will be shows #19 and 20 for me.
I must be out of my mind!

It is historically proven that Europe always gets the best songs/setlists so.... Don't let me down TR!

I’ve kind of been all over the area I live in (Los Angeles). Vegas several times and once in Mountain View, ca.
The farthest was actually Los Angeles to Paris in 2007. It was kind of a joke with my friends but ended up going and it was a wonderful experience.

Yeah, it's so much quicker and easier to go to Toronto/Hamilton Ontario, or even Ohio and PA, than it is to see a NYC show. And like most people, the rest of the state is largely ignored.

1st time seeing NIN was 2005. Did Durham (UK) to Paris which was 546 miles.
Last year did Durham to NYC for Panorama which was 3337 miles.
Going to Czech Republic for Aerodrome this month, 1051 miles.
Trying to magic up the cash for either Osaka or Bangkok but they're looking unlikely.

Haven't done it yet, but NIN is playing in Atlanta the day after my birthday, and my organization's national conference is being held in a hotel just over a mile away that weekend, so I'll be flying in to Atlanta from San Diego and seeing them at the Fox Theater about 4 hours after I get off the plane. Gonna be a great birthday present.

Has anyone seen a show at the Fox Theater before? It looks like it's got pretty decent views even in the cheap seats.

Whilst i haven't personally travelled far, i did befriend a nice women in the que to the London Scala show in 2014 who's travelled all the way from Australia for the show! I helped her get a nice spot to the side of the stage in-front on a side rail with little crowd push, i like to think she appreciated that after all that travel!

Going from ATL to Vegas for the two nights at the end of the month. This will be the second time I have flown to Vegas for a NIN show at the Hard Rock. Aside from that, flew to Louisville to see them at Louder than Life, which was cancelled so we ended up driving from Louisville to Nashville for the Saturday night show instead.

Really excited to go to see them in Vegas. Im also still considering finding tickets to two shows in New Orleans, but I'm not sure it's in my budget.
