They're practically cutting the arena in half! I guess NIN isn't quite as popular as they use to be.
I guess they're more popular around here.

Not to mention if the show does well they can move up the floor a bit.

Let's not discount the popularity of NIN. For a lot of people, they're is a throwback act.

Gotta say I'm a little disappointed w/ NIN. Looks like they are trying to milk this reunion for all its worth. On Lights In The Sky w/ the EXACT same setup (arenas, end stage, GA floor, etc...) when I saw them in Tulsa I paid between $45-55 to be on the GA floor. After looking on Ticketmaster out of the 3 or 4 I looked at, the floor is going for $100+. I'm sure it will be an amazing show like Lights In The Sky.

If they say this tour will be an extension of it, then why in the hell is the price literally twice what it was in 2008? I love NIN and they put on the best live stage show I've ever seen but I'm disappointed that they are jacking their prices up all because of the shtick of "reuniting". Kinda reeks of a $ grab.

I don't know much about the ticketing/touring business, but I have a feeling the band has no control over or even idea of what the prices for their shows are.

I'd find that hard to believe that they have little to no control over their ticket prices. That did jog my memory a little bit though... I do also remember that in '08 was when they were independent and now that they signed to Columbia their tickets are sky high.

I get that on a major label the tickets would probably go up a bit, but it seems hard to believe that they go from independent to major label and that doubles the prices of their shows. Again, I don't know for sure but that seems a bit excessive to me.

My tickets for Lights in the Sky in 08 were about $90 each for the floor, through ticketmaster for the Detroit (Auburn Hills) show.

I mean, i'm sure they control it somewhat indirectly with how much they get paid by the promoter each show and the stage productions costs and all that, but ultimately it's the promoters who decide what the ticket prices are.

That's easy. Tour income is the only way to pay back the money fronted by the label for recording because record sales don't cover it anymore. When they were fronting the money themselves (and probably doing things on a much lower budget accordingly), there was less to recoup. Now they've got to make more money to pay back Columbia.

And of course, don't rule out the fact that they're only touring again because the money's run out from last time.
