Two weeks of ticket buying chaos results in the dream tour!

So the last 2 weeks has been exciting for me with tour announcements from my 2 bands: Pearl Jam and Nine Inch Nails. With a presale going on pretty much every day, it has also been a nightmare trying to secure tickets to these shows, many of which are in the exclusive category, so they were hard to get. Nonetheless, I was successful in scoring tickets and my August and September is now setup with, what can only be described as, my dream tour.

Highlights of this tour include the intimate 1500 capacity Pearl Jam gig at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, a venue which I lived next to and attended many shows at during my time in the UK. The other major highlight will be the Nine Inch Nails show at the 600 capacity Echoplex in Los Angeles, this, the final Nine Inch Nail show ever as stated by Trent Reznor. Being able to purchase this ticket was like winning the lottery. So after all the smoke has cleared, this is what my tour looks like as of now.
