I’ve been lining up around 10am so that’s what time I’ll probably be there tomorrow. My name’s Amy so if you see me feel free to say hi and we can hang out while we wait for wristbands :)
Just discovered I’ll be staying near this giant park in Perth where I can go running and I started crying.
Yeah it’s pretty chill :) your wristband has your number in line on it and you stay in that order the entire time. We got let in at around 4:45 and sat inside the arena (but not actually inside where the stage is if that makes sense) then sat down in our line order for about an hour. Then we all walked in to the barrier/stage area in the exact same order so if you get there early on the day you’re pretty much guaranteed a good spot as long as not too many people lined up before you :)
No problem :) I just got back from the sydney show and we got wristbands at 3:30 then about an hour or so later we got let in the venue to get our tickets/get ordered into another line for about an hour so we could buy merch, go to the toilet etc. so it was very stress free :) I think I have all of my presale emails now except for Brisbane maybe? I don’t remember haha
The entire process of going to concerts is just awful and I question why I do it every single time even though I do love NIN.
Kirstin is here and might start crying.

i totally read that as they’re both only getting 20 minute sets and i am so tired that i wasn’t even angry. also i feel like because of the sweethead afterparty shows, qotsa will probably end up playing first.
Hahahah I think I’d want my $250 back if that was the case :p what’s the sweethead afterparty/is it just in melbourne?
It still hasn’t quite sunk in that I’ll be seeing NIN tomorrow. I’m still waiting on Trent to cancel for some reason but so far nothing. I got an email from ticketek today and from the looks of the set times we’ll only be getting an hour+20mins no matter who’s headlining. The upside is: if qotsa play first I’m so glad I don’t have to wait two hours for NIN, the downside: either way it’s still a short set list for NIN. I can’t really complain though when I’ll be seeing them a bunch but even two hours for the band playing last would have been awesome.

I’m so confused as to what time I’m supposed to line up for the pre-sale line.
I’m going to the Sydney show tomorrow and I’m probably going to line up around 10am. From the looks of the presale email I got it’s going to be pretty similar to the Tension shows where you line up whenever you want, get a wrist band with your number in line on it and go inside the venue in that order. I know with the shows I went to we were sometimes given our wristbands a little earlier in the day and we could just leave the line to go and do what we wanted then come back later for ticket check in, but I’m not 100% if we’ll be allowed to do that this tour. I definitely hope it’s the same though :)
