    I can't believe I actually managed to score a ticket for this. The line up I have dreamed about for 25 years... NIN with Ministry and Skinny Puppy, the biggest 3 industrial bands. If it was just Ministry and NIN I would have passed, I saw them play together at Riotfest 2017. But with how infrequently Skinny Puppy plays live, considering I have never seen them, I can't miss out on this. (This will be #7 for NIN and #5 for Ministry for me)

    This should be a cool experience, I have never been out of the united states, much less somewhere I don't speak the native language. Already booked my appointment to get my passport.

    Any one else coming over from the states for this?

    And yes, I plan on taping the entire Holy Trinity.

    Was interested in making the trek, but missed out on single day tickets.

    This "we got all the bands we asked for on our ticket" deal has the makings for some really special performances. Supernaut?

    I got my hopes up at Riotfest, with New Order, Ministry and Saul Williams, you think that Trent could have ran out on stage at least once for some guest vocals, but I guess not.

    Hoping for a Trent/Ogre/Al rendition of Smothered Hope this time though!!

    flying in from Ottawa, ONtario. booked a hotel room.
    photos look good. i think it is normally a cheap place just to flop.... but hopefully will go good for extended stay https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Re..._la_Loire.html

    Seven Urban Suites Nantes Centre, Nantes
    will probably spend week touring around before the show ... and maybe a week after... then might go to Italy. still not sure but hoping to tour around a bit.

    Well, as of right now, I'm going to make this happen after all.

    I see that France was added to the list of countries the CDC is advising against travel to, now would probably be the best time to book my flight on the cheap. This might be my only chance to travel to Europe so I'm going to try and make this into a 2 week trip scheduled around the show.

    And like I said in the Cleveland thread, after this show I'm probably going to be done taping and going to shows in general, for awhile.

    Well, I turned in my passport application a couple weeks ago, right now the wait is 8-11 weeks.

    Yesterday I bought my airline tickets. June 20th I'll be flying to Paris and June 30th I'll be flying from Berlin to Minneapolis because there was almost a $600 price difference to fly direct to Sioux Falls, I'll just get a rental and drive the rest of the way home.

    Speaking of car rentals, that's what I'm going to end up doing while I'm in Europe, so that way I have the flexibility I need to do what I want when I want. When I travel nothing is more liberating than that.

    FWIW, you may want to look into getting an international driver's license for the purpose of car rentals in Europe.
