    Highly disrespectful.

    People ruined a lot of this show. Like, every time Trent did something, all I could hear was girls screaming.

    I have to say that having watched the video, Ice Age is definitley a lot better live than just listening to a studio recording. Too bad we aren't getting a live album of this tour...

    I apologize if this is a repeat, I haven't had a chance to catch up on the entire thread yet.

    Arrived about 5pm, had to beat traffic out of San Diego, and ended up being fourth in line for the pre-sale line. It went fairly smooth, other than the TM will call people that were trying to trick security to letting them in with/before us, but thankfully the people controlling the pre-sale set them straight.

    There were only 100 show posters, apparently there will be 6 rotating designs during the course of the tour. 40 were signed and $55 as reported above, with the remaining 60 being unsigned and costing $25.

    Got a place dead center on the rail. DIIV went on at 9pm, and I really enjoyed it. I did not enjoy the idiot to my right that kept telling his two friends how terrible he thought DIIV was after each song.

    HTDA took the stage at 10pm. The white lights during TWU were so intense that my eyes were watering, it was staring into a supernova. I recommend polarized shades for that song. Mariqueen was definitely tearing up when she sang Ice Age, my friend agreed with me. Rob looked a little stiff throughout the show, probably just first show jitters/anxiety. Hopefully he loosens up a bit and enjoys himself more as the tour goes on. Annoying girls screaming out "Trent Reznor" and "I love you Trent" were the worst part of the show.

    Did any one else notice the guy by the soundbooth that looked like Robin? Or am I mistaken?

    I'm aiming for rail for my show, but after seeing the images and videos, I'm wondering if I should stand in the back. Did being up close take away from the visuals? Or was it still pretty awesome?

    I was front and center (friend of the guy who hated on DIIV the entire time they were up there, LOL) and it was cool but after seeing videos from further away, the visuals are much better if you stand back a little bit. If I go again I would try and be further back.

    Really? I somehow expected Trent to turn the bass so high that you almost shit yourself.

    Also, were people dancing or just standing around?

    standing around, head bobbing. Not enough room where I was but I was head bobbing as hard as possible without looking like a singular head bobbing fool.

    I'm liking Trent's voice on And The Sky Began To Scream, it's not as NIN as I was expecting. Def. carving their own sound out.

    And huge props to @suprefan

    4th in line for presale, not the non presaale line. Plenty of people who didnt get presale will line up early so they can be first after presale people are let in.


    A Drowning

    Why would you want to do that when you can enjoy the show and dance instead?

    Was there any point in the show where the band members (namely Mariqueen & Trent I guess) spoke to the crowd? Or was it just a "come on stage, look and sound badass, leave" type thing?

    I'd like to know this as well.

    Also, the more I think about it, with the way HTDA presents itself, it almost seems like you get more value from the concert by actually being further back. They are all hidden behind the screens anyway, so the focus is to actually enjoy the visuals with the music, while the band just does their thing in the background.

    Mariqueen spoke briefly before A Drowning, the last song before the encore.

    Yeah at one point Mariqueen said that it was their first show and that they were enjoying playing for the amazing crowd. Something like that...

    Mariqueen said something about it being their first show, gave a shout out to DIIV, and said goodnight at the end. No one else spoke.

    You wont get it in. Only slr's were the people who were there with the media, and some crew people, thats it.

    I enjoyed being on the rail and after viewing the videos on youtube, I really don't feel that I missed any of the visuals. Besides, seeing Mariqueen shiver and tear up during Ice Age was an experience that the people in the back watching the visuals couldn't capture.

    Only bad part about Rob being in the band is that it means we won't get videos from him...

    Also, I wasn't a fan of the album, but the performance looked rather awesome.
