After seeing NIN play in a club again  a couple of years ago I could never see them in an arena.

I'm not going to see them in an arena. Cause I'm not a fan not cause I've seen them before or anything.
Round about now! Since they say! I am the sexiest man in Jamaica!

Just scored two more tickets to a private invite-only Los Angeles show. My friend found the tickets under a rock.

Read about it here:

http://www.echoingthesound.org/phpbbx/viewtopic.php?t=37735

The official site has a file you can load in Google Earth that show all their tour locations. One marker had a question mark and a note that said "Under the rock"



Since I'm in NY visiting my family I couldn't make it there so I called my friend and sent him to find out what it was. And he found an invite for him and a guest! =-D

They're playing nowhere near me (S. FLA) and don't have the scratch to travel...

Besides, some of their audience scare me.   ;)

If they add a date nearby I'll be there.  Chicago is the closest and a 5 hour drive.
