Hoping to prevent scalpers from profiting off their upcoming tour — and to ensure the true fans get front row — Nine Inch Nails will offer their fans a limited allotment of best available seating before the tickets go on sale to the general public. NIN will begin selling those tickets at their official website seventy-two hours before the official on-sale date. To further stonewall those scheming scalpers and ticket brokers, each ticket is imprinted with the purchasers’ name, and can only be acquired the day of the show at the will-call window with an ID that matches the name of the ticket. Then, upon receiving the tickets, the person whose name is inscribed on the ticket must immediately enter the venue, making it impossible to run back to the parking lot and sell it to some buyer from CraigsList. Pre-sales are expected to begin Wednesday with the band’s Lexington, Kentucky, show. And remember, we’re less than a week away from the big announcement Trent Reznor has been teasing over at his website.
