Regular readers will know that I’ve been a fan of Nine Inch Nails for a very long time now – indeed, since way before D4D came into existence.
However, I’ve had a pretty checkered history when it comes to seeing them live. The history goes…
- I managed to see them on the NIN/JA tour in 2009,
- Failed in 2007, due to Ticketmaster sending the tickets to an old address
- Failed in 2005, due to Brixton Academy not letting me in with a digital camera
- Failed in 2005 at the Astoria, due to the tickets selling out
I’ve seen them twice prior to that though (although pre-D4D, so no record/links to when)
So this week, knowing that the ticket sales were coming up, I was determined to get to see the new tour.
When the pre-sales ones came out, I couldn’t get ones for the gig at the O2 on the Friday, so got one for Manchester on the Sunday instead – I’ll worry about travel closer to the time.
And then when the normal sales came out yesterday, I got them for the O2 on the Friday as well.
Of course, I still need to make sure I actually go to the gigs, but at least I’m prepared and ready this time…
