    To make it fast, go here and get an account/payment set up now:

    https://shakyknees.frontgatetickets.com/

    Then it should have listings tomorrow after 10am EST.

    If you used Front Gate for any other festival shows lately, you should likely be able to use the same login here. No promises on my end though!

    How likely is this to sell out anytime soon? I'm on the fence and would like to wait a bit to see what else pops up.

    No idea but you can likely get resale tickets for face value (or even below).

    Final cost for a GA Saturday pass including wristband shipping was $145.98, but fuck it. Super excited.

    Anybody know how walkable it is from Central Park to downtown at night? I found a good deal for the Ritz Carlton hotel there, but am wondering about safety and if it'd be better to get a rideshare or taxi after the show.

    personally i would say no itís not a safe walk between the two locations. there used to be a large homeless shelter by the area where the ritz is. it was closed a few years ago and now thereís a street population of homeless people in the area. itís fine if you keep your distance and youíd probably be ok. but thereís a lot of them. it overwhelms me sometimes when i see them. i try to stay away from the area of peachtree and pine streets if iím alone (or in general). i havenít been by since last year but thereís usually a large group around the closed shelter. there have always been panhandlers and people in the streets but the homeless population in atlanta exploded since the pandemic. so many without basic necessities and the largest shelter closed. itís a sad situation.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Would Midtown be a better place to stay in for walking purposes from Central Park?

    Iím really thinking about doing this, but at this point Iím waiting until the last minute to book anything (tickets, hotel, flight). If this past years shows are any indication, then this has an NIN cancellation written all over it.

    I'm pretty sure this won't happen. especially in Georgia, where people DGAF about vaccinations and masks.

    yes but the artists make these calls too. i live in the suburbs of atlanta. iíve watched everyone and their mom go to events without masks and with total ease. a concert i bought tickets to in july for december 30 was cancelled by the artists on december 27 because the numbers are increasing rapidly here. there are no mask mandates here and no lockdowns but there are people who get it.

    Shaky Knees will probably happen but how many artists will cancel between now and then? maybe there wonít be a surge then. i really want to see nin but i canít get my hopes up anymore. the crushing disappointment of the last week has me feeling bitter about covid. what is even the point of having elections if these officials canít do their fucking jobs and protect public health? i donít understand why we are letting the least qualified people make decisions that put us all in limbo indefinitely.

    ah yea I should have worded it differently. I was essentially saying the same thing as you.

    as in... I'm pretty sure this show won't happen. because : reasons.

    Well, going by South Africa, the arc of an Omicron surge takes about 2 months from beginning to end. So, based on that, case levels in Georgia should be down to a normal-ish level by the end of February. A lot can happen in two months between Feb. and Apr. though. Another surge or another variant? It seems like the best time to plan something (like a trip or a concert) is on the downslope of a surge, and no more than 2 months out.

    Guess I'll do something like DJO (Joe Keery from Stranger Things) --> Guided By Voices --> Molchat Doma --> Kurt Vile --> Chvrches --> NIN.

    Sucks to skip King Gizzard and Japanese Breakfast, but I can see those at Primavera Sound and getting a prime spot for NIN takes precedence.

    Whoa, a band from my country plays there (Molchat Doma). Amazing achievement to make it to the west, being from such a place. I struggle to come up with any other band from Belarus that toured anywhere farther than in post-Soviet countries.

    Wonder why TR only wants to do these 90 min sets nowadays. MMJ and Green Day both have longer sets at this fest.

    The 2018 standalone shows also lasted only 90 minutes, so I'll take it.

    Even though I originally planned on backing out of this when the additional dates were announced, this one is looking very likely for me now. Anyone else doing VIP?

    Cool! See you there! Are you planning on using the VIP viewing areas for NIN or trying to get close to stage with GA?

    We sprung for the one day Platinum, because my husband is a cranky bastard who hates crowds in general, so we'll probably stick to those viewing areas, yeah. We're going to hit Nashville the next night, too, so will have plenty of good viewing opportunities. : )

    Island Noodles is at a lot of other festivals and is generally a decent choice.

    I completely understand hating crowds . Sounds like you guys will have a different/better viewing area than my measly regular vip area. If you feel like saying hi sometime throughout the day Iíll probably be hanging in the regular vip. Not sure if you remember, but we met previously at panorama and riot fest in 2017. Iím heading to the Tennessee show the next day tooÖ got a good reserved seat for that one.
