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.

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.

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). [emoji4]

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'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!

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.

Most definitely wont be able to make it to the physical presale. But if there are any tickets left that go on sale online, I'll purchase one. Or if someone on ETS is willing to sell a spare. Even if I am able to get a ticket, still gotta figure out a way to get there. 7-12 hour Greyhound bus ride YAAAY!! no but I have no other option cause I am waaayy to broke right now to buy plane ticket. I admit, I am being a bit greedy since I will be attending the 6/15 and 6/16 Vegas shows. So if I don't get to make it to this show, I'll accept that. Que SerŠ, SerŠ.:rolleyes:

This fucking sucks for me. Firstly there's a bunch of asshole public transportation issues to get from where I live in the suburbs to the Aragon, and that would be a huge thing on its own just trying to get there with my disability. But, the Aragon is GA only, and because of a shitload of extremely invasive leg surgeries I've had the past few years on both legs (external fixators going through bone and all to fix a birth defect), I'm still trying to learn how to walk. There's absolutely no way I could stand for a whole show.

I called Aragon and they said that since it's GA only, they don't have ADA "seats" but that once I arrive I've just have to request for assistance to show me where to go... which is apparently on the second floor???? DOes anyone else have experience with wheelchairs or walkers at the Aragon? I mean I hope there are elevators or something because I don't see how else this is happening lol. I think I could manage with a walker too with a fold down seat on it, but at this point I don't fucking know. My mobility is just so limited and I'm never sure day to day how it's going to be. It's hard to explain to anyone who has never had to learn how to re-walk, completely differently, on your whole foot instead of just your tiptoes for 27 years.

And back to Aragon, since I can't get to the box office, I just have to sit here and hope and pray with all my black heart and soul that the NIN gods will smile down upon me for me to be able to score a ticket to even have a possibility to get into this venue to see this show. God damn. I don't think NIN could have made this any more stressful for me than it is right now.

Oh and on top if it, I don't have the $99 to spend right this second on a ticket, so even trying to get a kind ETSer to get one ticket for one show for me I wouldn't be able to pay back for a bit (ASAP of course but don't blame you for not taking my word for it lol)

So bummed I had to miss Riot Fest last year because I was laid up with this surgery and now I'll probably have to miss this, too, because of my legs still not able to walk and stand well. :/ sorry for the pity party but I'm seriously so bummed out.


Anyways, I just want to say good luck to all those going to the IRL presales, I hope you get the tickets you want! (except for in Chicago please leave me some for one of the shows okay please thanks ;))

Update! m0reta was super kind enough to scour the internet for me, I was getting all sorts of conflicting info but this all sounds promising! http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/threads/4537-Cold-and-Black-and-Infinite-Fall-Tour-2018-Live-Tour-Discussion?p=408598#post408598

it looks like if you're in a wheelchair there is an elevator to bring you up to the handicap seating area, and also that other areas are accessible as well. This takes tons of weight off my shoulders. Also that the wording from NIN seems to be that the online sales will definitely have ADA tickets. Whew. Calmed down for now hahaha. Cannot thank m0reta enough <3 and I hope this info might help someone else.

"This venue is an all General Admission venue. Patrons requesting accessible seating should purchase a regular General Admission ticket."

This is a terrible plan. I feel like I'm going to show up at 8am and there will be a line 300 people deep because they realized in the morning that they needed a better plan. Idiotic.

On the more optimistic side, I think tickets for Chicago will be selling at face after the initial hysteria dies down. Aragon is a big hall and the NIN draw at these prices with a lot of other cities getting shows may be less than insane.

Should we put together a text or messaging group for the ETS fans in Chicago?

I'm not expecting to get there until 7:45 but would be nice to get an update from someone who is there much earlier to know if there is a pre-line line. I'm guessing there are also some people who won't get there until later and would like to know when it sells out.

Okay I have another update. Aragon Ballroom actually DMed me on Twitter:

Tweet from Aragon:
DM us your name and contact information and we’ll have someone reach out to you to help facilitate your purchase.

My response DM (my details taken out of course haha):
Hi, thank you so much for this help!! I assume you would be contacting me tomorrow (a later date is fine too, I'm just very confused I'm sure you understand.)

Name
Street
City, State, ZIP
Cell: 867-5309
Email (preferred): *@gmail.com


Wheelchair preferred, but I can bring my own wheelchair but would definitely need wheelchair accessibility (or if not, I have a walker that has a fold down seat that doesn't get in the way, if this would be easier. I'm still healing from crazy leg surgery with reconstructing bones and stuff so I can only do limited walking before needing to sit.)


This is my first time needing these kinds of accommodations and I just feel like a terrible burden. But Nine Inch Nails is my absolute favorite so I'd be devastated if I couldn't go to one of the shows. ANYWAY so sorry for filling your DM. Just wanted to make sure you have any info you needed.


Thank you very much for this! So much appreciated.



I haven't heard back yet but this is all sounding really promising so far! And again I hope this helps any other people who might need some assistance for this show!

Best way to be sure is give them a call on Monday?

My mind has been frazzled all day but I did give them a call earlier and they said that since I can't make it to the box office, the leftover tickets might online, and if I got a ticket on there, when I get to the venue, to let them know I need special assistance. All in all it sounds like it might work out maybe, if I hopefully get that DM from them on Twitter where they said they'd help me get a ticket.

lol literally at this point just wheel me into a corner and I would be perfectly fine, I just neeeed to be at one of these shows. :/

also, i think it's ironic that part of the point of this "physical world" presale is to get people to interact with each other, and my social anxiety is flaring up so bad this morning that i think i'm going to just have headphones on and ignore everyone :(

This is fucking bullshit. Let's see.. Let's tell all the fans that they cannot line up until 8 and then let's just let all the scalping assholes line up hours before that anyways..

I thought for sure they would go with the old lottery method from when you actually had to go get tickets in person. That's what made lining up at a specific time work.

*Note* I'm not lumping in the early sitters that want to actually buy tickets for themselves with the scalping asshats

I just hope they have space for me at just one of them. I'm super embarrassed, I've never had to ask for special wheelchair accommodations before, and I'm just really nervous and ashamed and all I want is to see my favorite band at least once more.

Not sure but I don’t think so. I’ve heard people that were in the back of the line were able to get tickets just fine. Not sure if they stopped selling at 3, or stopped allowing new people in line at 3.

I kept an eye on StubHub and the prices dropped steadily through the day- they’re under $200 now and they started around $250 I think. My guess is they didn’t sell out yet but that’s just going by the secondary market.

Five hours of total driving, four hours in line, one panicked phone call to my bank, and one very patient girlfriend later..I got my tickets to all three shows. Apologies to anyone/everyone for not being able to snag extras.

I have to say, that sorta sucked. I'm so glad I got there when I did, because that video of the line in full is both amazing and terrifying. I think I would have preferred a mad dash to the front of the line at 8am like I thought it was going to be..because I was pissed at the amount of people in front of me at 7:15am already. I didn't even know there was a listening station; as soon as I got my tickets I mostly wanted to GTF outta there.

The parking and driving in Chicago is bonkers; I don't know how you people do it!

Back on track: I've never done a thing like this where I've seen a band play a few nights in a row (tried with Tool about a decade ago, but they cancelled the second show.) Very excited to see the differences in each set and what surprises Trent will pull out. Also, I may be able to finally see 'The Day the World Went Away' live. I've seen NIN seven times now and still haven't seen that one track!

Ha, that area of Chicago isn't even bad for driving/parking. You should visit the loop.

I agree with you. I'm fine since I scored all 3 shows and the weather was bearable. I got there at 5:30 so no traffic and I found parking. I know some people are excited about making new friends in line (it's good to talk to each other even when you're not forced to spend half a day together) but it was a huge time/energy investment. If it had been 40 degrees or 100 degrees (like it was in PHX) I think there would be a lot more complaints from Chicago.

I really hope this was a one-time thing.

Yeah, I know what you mean, but I'm have a pretty heavy case of FOMO right now and I was eyeballing two auctions on eBay yesterday and one of them is gone today. I really want to get tickets for the Saturday show so that I only have to take one day off from work and considering how many people were in line for Chicago, I doubt there's a great deal left over. Plus, once (if) they go on sale online, the demand will still he high enough that they'll sell out whatever small amount remains like immediately. I just don't know how long I should wait.

Sooo…. here is ho it when down for me.

I got to Aragon at about 3:30am Saturday and posted up in line behind some homeless guys that where recruited by a scalper (FUCK THE SCALPER WHO EXPLOITED THEM!). I was like 15ish. Then more people showed up. We talked about previous show we've been to, great conversation. The guy behind me that showed up on his bike, was surprised I was 40ysold and that I remember buying tickets this way back in the early 90's. It was rainy but we survived\ held each other place as we had to attend to our parking and pissing. I told them (the guys behind me) that I would be letting my wife's homegirl cut in because if it wasn't for her I would have missed out on the white Bad Witch vinyl.

Day finally broke and so did the rain (for the most part) and one guy knew one of the livenation security guys so we had some what of an inside scope on what to expect. The line shifted to the west side of the L train and then my wife's home girl, Jen and her boyfriend showed up (they brought "friendship beers" lol but we where tired from the long night and beer would have shut us down.) Their was a lot of speculation on if we could get four ticket max or four ticket per show. Then a livenation guy walked by announcing a third date. We all freaked the FUCK out. The bar near by opened and I left to piss. A dude in the restroom was on the phone giving bad info and in my friendly manner I called out what was going on and he corrected what he was saying. (maybe that was too much info.) My phone was blowing up with text messages so I headed back and found that the line finally moved back to Aragon.

I reclaimed my spot (Thanks Jen!!!) and the mood picked up. We learned that the line had grown insanely, it stretch from the Argon west to Broadway and up to Foster (if you know Chicago that is a little bit of a hike.) Twitter was blowing up with info of the other locations and we finally moved in to get tickets!!!! It was awesome, I scored four ticket to each night, 12 tickets total. My crew will be able to fill out that no problem, but if something go wrong I know their are peeps here would couldn't be there so I will hook you up AT FACE VALUE!!! (I'll keep this info posted, @snichols will get first dibs as we have PM'd back and forth on this.) I then went over to the merch table and copped the shirt, lithlo (#401), and slipmat. On the way out I met a guy who got lithlo #402 he said we are poster brothers, lol! I called my homies, specifically my buddy back in FL and told him what the FUCK was up. Initially he just wanted to come up for one night but homie changed gears and was stoked we can go all three nights.

Looking forward to see my line homies at the shows in OCT.

in all my years of concert going waiting is 100% the right move. unless you need them in high volume (5+) there is absolutley no reason you should pay up 6 months in advance. 99% of the time i wait until day of to buy my tix.

i always wear a helmet, don't listen to music while i ride (much to my dismay), and obey as many traffic laws as i possibly can while also making sure i don't cause any accidents or even inconveniences to anyone else on the road. but it's still terrifying a lot of the time. the general apathy people have toward one another is astounding.

I have another update! Jane from LiveNation called me and told me that they apologize for the delay but that the presales had them swamped on Saturday (which is absolutely true and I completely understand and don't blame them! lol). They said they do have ADA tickets held for me to purchase, but that because of "management" (not sure who they mean by this) they aren't allowed to sell them until the rest of the tickets go on sale (that sounds to me like there will be more tickets for sure for these shows, everyone! Don't blame me if wrong I'm just inferring based on what she said....)

So, she said she will email me, and I just got that email, and to reply to the email with my info and the number of tickets and the show(s) I want to go to and she/they will process my order as soon as they are able. Here is the email she sent:

Hi Staci,

Here’s my email. Please send me at your earliest convenience your information and as soon as we are able to, we I’ll process your order. Most likely it will not be processed until next week but I’ll let you know when it is.

Thanks
Jane

So, things are still looking good! If a bit sketchy to send my card info through email...... but it's NIN and I must. So, email sent, one ADA ticket for the 10/27 Saturday show requested, and I'll let you all know how it turns out! Thanks for the support here guys, I've been freaking out wondering if this can even happen for me and so embarrassed that I actually need an ADA ticket when I used to do rail, damn surgeries.

I hope to see a bunch of you guys there!!!! ❤️

I just called the aragon box office, the man said none of the shows have sold out yet and tickets will go on sale later this week at the box office and on-line. He would not give me a specific day. I asked if he knew what percentage of tickets were still available for the shows and he just there are a lot of tickets still available. Hopefully this is true.

I just think it's weird that they would do this for a GA venue. Like yeah it makes sense to do the IRL presales for the venues with seats for sure, but it's a bit silly to do it for the GA-only ones. (is there a special line for the NIN presales this time around or is everyone just first come first serve when lining up and entering the venue? because if the people from the IRL presale don't enter first then there really wasn't much of a point at all to do the presale other than buying merch... haha) But I am jealous of the merch that I wish I could've been there to buy! But then again, my bank account is quite happy that it didn't work out that way for me :p

This is the week of my third vacation week, so I might catch one of these shows, as well, even if the prime tickets are gone by the time I get one. I've been to this theater quite a bit. Deep, careful planning months in advance I can do. Short notice when I work are just not made for my life. So I missed out on the big event, but at least I might actually get a show this year. That's something!

For your sake, I hope the pre-sale tickets are some kind of early venue entry. Even though I realize the Physical World thing was more of an experience/event on its own, it would kinda suck to have traveled hours and waited in line for even more hours just to end up half way back in the pit the day of with online ticket people up in the front.

I was tempted to try to get tickets to these shows, but I have to save all my money now to drive out to Colorado, so I really shouldn't.

I was only planning on hitting a Red Rocks show, but after seeing them at the Aragon for Wave Goodbye in 2009, I dunno if I'll be able to resist. If I can get a ticket for like $105 then I just might have to.

Man, it's been almost TEN years since the Wave Goodbye Aragon shows? God. What an awesome venue that was.

nope, balcony is GA too and i'm hoping to get a good spot up there. i have chronic pain issues and standing at shows for too long really fucks me up. i want to be able to enjoy NIN, not feel like i'm 80 years old :p

i'm really looking forward to this. i'm still mad at myself for missing wave goodbye and, while the aragon doesn't have the best sound for rock shows, it's still a beautiful venue, and seeing NIN indoors (as opposed to at riot fest) will be lovely.

I'm incredibly excited by this. I might also try to get a good balcony spot. The last show there, I had too many tickets in my car (very 1st world problem there) and had to run back to get the right one, and was stuck in a really bad spot behind some people who were not even interested in the band I was seeing. I just want to be with people who actually appreciate the music. Also, I just really thought about it, today, and it's been since January of 1990 since I saw The Jesus and Mary Chain. I'm really looking forward to this.

Are you telling me that if I don't get there early enough, they'll MAKE me go up in the balcony? If that's the case (for those who've seen NIN at this venue before), how early is early enough to avoid the balcony?

I saw one of the Wave Goodbye shows at Aragon. I got inside shortly before the show started (read: not early) and managed to make my way to the middle of the floor. Granted, it's been almost 9 years but I don't recall anyone being forced to the balcony.

In fact I don't recall this ever being the case in any venue unless my ticket was specifically for the balcony.

I also don't recall that being the case. There was open seating up in the balcony, but the GA area pretty much covered everything. It can get hard to see/navigate if you get there too late, but I don't think anyone was directed anywhere specific. I even went back and forth between the balcony and the floor one of the two nights and didn't have any issues.

Hey! I'm new here, hello everyone.

Anyway, I also have my tickets for Aragon. I'm going on Saturday. Since it's my first time seeing NIN I would've loved to go a second night, but my account didn't permit it. While I wasn't a fan of the in person event, I'm still glad I have tickets even though they are going on sale tomorrow online. It's nice to avoid those TM fees for once. My plan is to see the show from the balcony too. The last time I was at Aragon that's where I was and I loved it. Had a great view of everything.

Well, I mean, I could have stayed downstairs, but it was way in the back and I couldn't see or hear much of anything, so I went upstairs. I originally got there early enough (this was VNV Nation) at a couple hours before the show. I haven't been to Chicago for NIN before, but most places I have been to, the line up has started a few hour to several hours before the show.

Gotcha. This will be my 3rd time traveling to Chicago for NIN. The previous two were at an outdoor amphitheater and an outdoor festival (Riot Fest), so this will be a bit different than those.

It'll be fun being able to have some variety for the shows this fall in terms of what I feel like doing. I'm not a huge dude, so I usually don't like to get too close to the front since it's chaos up there. Not that I can't handle it, it's just something I only do sometimes when I haven't seen the artist in forever. I've seen NIN 7 times, and I'm going to all three shows, so I feel like for one of them I might just sit in the balcony and enjoy it from a distance. I suppose it depends on the stage production and how intricate that is. I'll probably rotate where I hang out each night though just for some variety. Can't wait.

Also, Chicago natives should recommend me some places to eat - I'll be there for a few nights.

these are all within a reasonable distance of the aragon, most of them have vegan and/or gluten-free options

favorite diner - pick me up cafe (open late)
favorite vegan restaurant - kal'ish
favorite pizza (from before i went vegan) - fat chris' (detroit deep dish style)
favorite breakfast/brunch - tweet (second place goes to bang bang pie & biscuits)
favorite mexican restaurant - garcia's (go to the one in lincoln square, aka the fun one, NOT the one on lawrence, aka the sad one)
favorite ice cream shop - george's (if you're into comics, there's a comic shop behind it!)
favorite coffee shop - groundswell (there are a couple, i prefer the one on damen, everyone's super nice)

Got on line around 10:00 and made it to the box office at 4:00. Glad it was overcast and chilly so sunburn was minimal (always a concern as a pale skinned person). One guy with Live Nation said there was coffee and food when we reached our destination but that was gone and there were only a few shirts left at the merch table. Secured tickets to all three nights - one of which is my 40th birthday, woohoo! It was a long arduous day (I’m not one who usually lines up early but prefers to be by the sound booth). I’d much rather the presale tickets online with our names printed on them like past presales.

It's what I can afford at the moment *shrug*. Google says its a 20 minute ride, not including the terrible traffic I'm assuming.

huh, that's surprising. i feel like wicker park would be way more expensive than rogers park! and yeah, 20 minutes without traffic sounds about right.

the nice thing about wicker park is that there's so much stuff to do down there, so you won't be bored when you're not at the show(s).

Wicker Park, It's like my other home cause that's where I get my vinyl when I want it NOW and in person versus waiting for discogs sellers shipping, lol.

these are all within a reasonable distance of the aragon, most of them have vegan and/or gluten-free options

favorite diner - pick me up cafe (open late)
favorite vegan restaurant - kal'ish
favorite pizza (from before i went vegan) - fat chris' (detroit deep dish style)
favorite breakfast/brunch - tweet (second place goes to bang bang pie & biscuits)
favorite mexican restaurant - garcia's (go to the one in lincoln square, aka the fun one, NOT the one on lawrence, aka the sad one)
favorite ice cream shop - george's (if you're into comics, there's a comic shop behind it!)
favorite coffee shop - groundswell (there are a couple, i prefer the one on damen, everyone's super nice)

Excellent. Appreciate all that!

With all the trouble Ticketmaster seemed to be, perhaps I am glad to have gotten my tickets already after all.

If you want good vinyl/music shopping you got Reckless Records, Shuga Records, and THe Exchange all pretty close to one another. And you have to make a stop at Stan's Donuts! They're the best!

Reckless Records is fantastic! Every time I'm in town for a show or Pitchfork Music Festival I always find something good there.

So ... I REALLY want to go to this Saturday show as it's the only one that works with my work schedule, but I know tickets will be hard to come by for a long time and probably up until the show. Since I've never used StubHub for anything major like this, the possibilities of anything around face value could be a possibility? I'm sure I'll have to go a little bit over if I end up getting a chance to make this one.

It's a gamble but waiting until much closer to the show, prices usually come down. But you run the risk of availability. It sometimes is a tough call.

oh, fuck! i can't believe i forgot to mention the diner!

two locations, one in logan square, one in boystown (lakeview). all vegan, all delicious. i've gone there with people who don't even realize they're eaten vegan food because it's just so fucking good. and the fucking PEANUT BUTTER PUCK is like my favorite dessert in existence. i'm drooling just thinking about it!

I've been to Chicago diner to try their vegan shakes... I did not have a good time. :eek:

how so? bad staff? bad shake? bad atmosphere?

i've never had a bad experience at either diner, nor a bad bit of food.

I didn't like the shakes and they didn't agree with me in the end. Plus the wait to have them to go was pretty long.

sorry to hear that! i've found that some people don't have good reactions to nutmilk or non-dairy ice cream, but for me i always got stomach aches and became extremely congested (and had recently started getting bad headaches) from dairy, which was part of my decision to go vegan.

YESSS!!! It is the best food ever!!! My wife and I are both vegan and we always want to drive their from MN. But when we are in Chicago we 100% go there. I have celiac disease and I tell them before hand, Ive never had any problems. Love that place. Cant wait to go when we go to see NIN!

Oh man.. Sorry to hear that! My wife and I literally want to drive 7 hours just to get their milk shakes. Its the closest shake Ive had that taste like a real shake. Always SO delicious. Maybe you have a soy or sugar intolerance? If I have more than one I feel sick for sure.

Yeah I just think it wasn't for me. I mean I like soy otherwise, but meh wasn't my thing. :)

Yeah it wasn't for me. But I think it's cool there's an alternative. I know a lot people can't have diary so I'm glad there's something out there to make sure everyone can have delicious shakes.

I wound up with some extra tickets that I need to sell. I have one ticket for Saturday that I need to get rid of. I may also sell my 2 tickets for the Thursday show (still thinking about it, though). PM me if you're interested.

I know some people don't like going the secondary market route, but StubHub prices aren't bad. Starting at $107.00 for the Friday show prior to fees is probably close to what us paid for during the on-line sale.

Just checked: still tickets for sale for three days. Only strange to see that they're becoming expensive more and more.
