YES! Ugh. I actually was offered tickets by a wonderful friend of mine, but she's in C. Springs, and I can't get there and back in a decent amount of time. Let alone the tix are a bit expensive...even though she offered me a GREAT deal! (

Seriously love Nine Inch Nails and everything they have done for me. I got a tattoo on my side saying "We will never die, beside you in time" from "Beside You in Time" by NIN after my best friend died ggelizardo@msn.com

Music has changed in so many ways since the start of NIN in the 90"'s but Trent is the rare muscian who has continued to stay strong in using electronics to form music in th most incrediable ways. NIN has the best concerts...true genius. pnkfldlvr@yahoo.com

Just under the wire. I want to be there! Last time I saw them in the broad daylight @ Fiddlers Green. They need to be seen in a very dark place. Please make it happen.

Trent Reznor is the reason I have produced music for over 10 years now. I am his biggest fan that I know of to exist with 32 Nine Inch Nails albums and growing! His music has impacted me more than any musician in the world!!!

In high school I had my little crappy boom box and would hope that Willie B would play NIN that night while I was doing my homework.  Heresy got me hooked, and all the singles with remixes sent me on a musical path that changed my life.  djunknown0@hotmail.com

NIN was the soundtrack to my high school years. Only had the privilege of seeing them live a few times, really hoping to go tonight. Couldn't have made it out of my teens without them!

 I've been a fan since my teenage years. Best memory ever would have to be me making a one year anniversary mix tape for my girlfriend. My girlfriend and I had promised to wait at least oneyear before having sex, so I thought NIN’s song, “Closer” would be very fitting to add to the mix tape, given our situation. I lost my virginity while that song was playing. I will never forget that night. Music is such a wonderful love letter that can speak the words most of us have trouble saying. I haven’t been to a NIN concert, but would love to go tonight. It would be nice to escape reality and feel young again.

In 2006 I bought 6 tickets to see NIN at red rocks. I saw them at the Fillmore the year prior. My plan was to take my mom my dad my brother and sister and cousins to see it at red rocks. I hyped it up and talked them into going! It was a great plan! Sadly my grandmother (moms side) died 2 days before the concert! My mom and dad and sister didn't end up going to the show . My brother and I along with my cousin when to the show which was amazing and awe inspiring. We gave the extras to sum friends and we all went! With tears of lose in our eyes we had the best time out of anyone there! A time that I won't ever forget!

Little did I know it was my first foray into electronic music production...NIN helped define a large part of my high school days, was one of the first handful of music acts to really start broadening my horizons, and is still probably the most respectful change of character/lifestyle (Trent's sobriety) to provide such a dramatic amount of inspiration in my life.

I've been listening to NIN since high school and have seen them play a few times, I remember seeing them at the Filmore, I ended up being able to go both nights as people had extra tickets.     benjamin.janzen@comcast.net

I have never seen NIN and would love to see them for the first time. I discovered NIN through my dad because he use to listen to their music in his car all the time and it has been part of me since then. I would really love to see them, I work full time and go to college and am raising two little ones, I deserve a night out! Thanks!

I am as girly as girly can be but NIN has some deep seeded history in my youth. The dark heavy riffs always spoke to me as they still do. In 7th grade my Mom was dropping me and my best friend off at Catholic school and NIN's "Closer" came on. Without skipping a beat we started singing all the words at the top of our lungs. I will never forget the look of horror and disdain on my Mom's face.  Beyond priceless.

 The DJ at my high school prom (seemingly a lifetime ago) had NIN on loop. No slow dancing that night. Always wanted to see them live.  discordiaconcors at hotmail dot com.

I've always been a huge fan of NIN, and I've seen them a few times when they visited Lexington, KY. I've always tried to follow news on the band and save up to see them in person. Having recently moved to Denver, I'd love to see them again!

Ive been a big fan since Pretty Hate Machine and finally got to see them on the With Teeth tour but it was way in the back. Even so, it was one of the best shows Id ever seen. Reznor's music has resonated with me ever since I first heard Head Like A Hole. There were few bands at the time to capture the angst of my youth.

I remember seeing them with the Dresden Dolls and just being blown away by how good they were (also saw them with Bowie, APC, all the bands of lolapaloza, etc)  Trent Reznor really has helped drive music for 2 decades

My wife and I saw NIN on the Lights in the Sky tour, only to find out just a couple of days later that she was pregnant. Interestingly, my now 3 1/2 year old has been obsessed with NIN since birth. She used to listen to Rockabye Baby and now wants to sing "Head Control" on Rock Band any chance she gets. We're pretty convinced that she somehow felt the beats inside the womb. If we could find a sitter, it would be cool to see the show.

I signed in for fan tickets and got the Red Rocks pre-sale 4 row center.  Drove 12 hours to get to the show (i didnt live in denver at the time)  During Hurt there was a drunk guy yelling REZNORRR!!! in his death metal voice at the top of his lungs.  It was pretty funny.

I was 13 when The Fragile came out, I was one of those kids that never ditched class, but I was determined to get a copy of the album the day it came out.  So I took the bus to school, but as soon as I got there,  I walked to the closest RTD bus stop and took the bus to Denver from Brighton.  I had only taken the bus once before to get to Metallica the summer before, but I didn't care.  After a long ride and getting lost,  I arrived at the Virgin Mega store and got my copy.  I was so happy and i was so excited to give it a listen. Scared of getting into more trouble than I was already in for ditching class,  I hopped back on the bus and took the hour long bus ride back.  I barely caught my school bus home and I missed the whole day.  But some how my mom didn't get the call that I ditched all day and I had my copy of the fragile the day it came out and the first time I ditched was for NIN.  Please  & thank you,  purpleshadesofgray@gmail.com
