    However it's well within NIN's scope to do an online gig - they know we'd pay for it, and I've attended several online gigs that have been of good quality. I'll miss being lovingly crushed by you all during, but I can handle that.
    TR's involvement in the 1/8 Mike Garson Bowie gig could be a nice trial run for a future online NIN show. CRC Sessions 2.0 would be verry niiiice [/borat voice]

    I would happily wear a mask to see NIN live. I would even go so far as being covered head to toe in black sack cloth in July in Florida.

    As long as I can be on the rail. And the front of my mask offers one of the following :

    luv U Trent
    wanna have UR bb
    play hurt
    play that FUK U song
    woooooo!!

    /jk *evil laugh*

    Trent just literally said in the pre-HOF NIN interview that webcam live performance is boring and they aren't doing it, nor they are going to do a live masked show because it implies situation still isn't 100% safe.
    He also said the same things earlier in one of Watchmen promo interviews.

    Masks? Considering I already wear one at work for anywhere from 8-12 hours a day, no problemo.

    Social Distancing? Well considering I'm a taper and I don't want anyone in my immediate vicinity anyways, yes please!

    But trent already said it ain't gonna happen, so let's just hope things are normal ish enough next year for a tour.

    I think if there's a band that could pull it off it'd be someone w/ NIN's resources. Maybe/hopefully they will. I feel like it's a creative issue, but I have no idea how a "live web concert" would really function. I've tried to watch some of them and I don't get it; it just feels the same as watching a concert video that could have been filmed whenever.

    The concept where you park your car in a lot has sounded interesting. Even outside of pandemic circumstances, there's some cool conceptual possibilities there. Unfortunately every time I hear about a band doing something like that, it's Bush or something.

    I am downright religious about wearing masks when I am out of my house--- and if I had to wear a mask to see NIN, like I thought might still be slightly possible when they moved the HOF induction ceremony, I would have worn a mask to that show. But I don't think there will be any *real* concerts until there is widespread vaccination.

    I went to all 6 shows in LA in 2018. I was on the rail for 4/6 shows. I camped outside the venue on and off throughout that week. I slept in my car. I also came down with the worst case of NIN-fluenza I have ever had. When the *wave goodbye shows* happened in 2009, and Swine Flu was a thing, we all blithely joked about it. That was my first foray with hard core Nin-Fluenza. I think I nursed a cold for two weeks after. But after the LA residency in 2018, I was sick for almost six weeks after the shows. If I could have prevented Nin-fluenza by wearing a mask, I would. The pits are always going to be a petri dish.

    In a post-covid world, I hope we get to all smush each other again. But I am now also of the age where I am hoping for some new concert/immersion experiences. I want to see a philharmonic performance of NIN songs. I'd love something done at LACMA, or MOMA or any kind of immersive art experience.

    Not going to shows sucks. I had tickets to see Dead Can Dance. I was so stoked. Permanent lung and organ damage sucks more.

    Wear a goddamn mask.

    Soooo... how are we feeling about these same issues now that there is a vaccine and shows on the calendar?

    I'm fully vaxxed, but I still intend to wear a mask and be in the pit.

    N95 for sure, as the Rockville is likely to be hillbilly central with the Trumpers in tow. It's also why I went in on the VIP pass to hopefully avoid some of the riffraff.
    And I'm fully vaxxed.

    What does the VIP ticket get you?

    Fully vax'd and Covid long haul survivor. I'll have a KN95 on the whole flight to Cleveland and back, and likely either that or the NIN cloth mask all the way up until house lights go down. Not sure after that, but I'm staying masked as long as comfortable unless things are like 99.9% normal by then. Glad that venue is basically wide open with a canopy overhead, should be a steady breeze from the water blowing through.

    Now picturing the entire band in masks, and TR just sinking $100k and countless hours into perfecting an LED screen sewn into one that shows pre-recorded video of his lips moving on it in time with each song.
