In an effort to give fans a special treat and give the finger to scalpers, Nine Inch Nails will be offering fans a limited number of pre-sale killer seats via its website before tickets go on sale to the general public.
These special tickets will go on sale at www.nin.com 72 hours before the official on-sale date. Pre-sales are expected to begin Wednesday with the band’s Lexington, Kentucky, show.
Each ticket is imprinted with the purchasers’ name, and can only be scored the day of the show at the will-call window with an ID that matches the name of the ticket. Once ya get the ticket you must immediately enter the venue, making it impossible to run back to the parking lot and sell it to a scalper.
In related news, NIN leader Trent Reznor has been threatening to make a big announcement on the site next week. Hmmmmm, I wonder what it is…
