    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!

    I mean, if someone has reasonable accommodations for accessibility, they have to comply. Providing others who might need this information is good. It is not dangerous to post and in fact, should be prominently displayed and easy to find on their website.

    I work in two different roles right now that relate to accessibility. That is not happening. That's like the "People on welfare are abusing it" trope. People provide an anecdotal story and then generalize it to everyone, disregarding data. It just simply is not the case.

    Geez, who said everyone? All I said was that "it happens." Nevermind.

    I know I have a friend who has been in line in NYC for I'd say at least an hour, she's #36 in line.

    SO, I hate to repeat myself and I don't mean to be annoying, but if any of you extremely dedicated fans who are ALREADY IN LINE(!!) is willing/able to get 2 extra tickets for me (for either night), I would pay extra ($50?) for your trouble. I live nearly 7 hours away, so I can't really drive there just to get tickets.

    You people are in UPTOWN overnight?

    Christ, I don’t even like parking my fucking car in Uptown for a few hours.

    I hope you brought pepper spray and a concealed weapon.

    (Uptown is gang territory, specifically the Conservative Vice Lords, the Black Gangster Disciples and the Black P Stones.)

    I, too, will repeat myself from earlier, and will say that I'd appreciate if anyone can get me one ticket for each show. I'm in Vancouver, and can manage a flight for the shows, but obviously not to get tickets in person tomorrow/today.

    Much appreciated.

    Joe

    Best way to be sure is give them a call on Monday? “Third floor balcony” I think are special boxes that aren’t accessible to the general public.

    lol no but I've been interrogating suspicious subjects and found a few scalpers, who are being fairly poorly treated.

    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. :/
