THE PHYSICAL WORLD PRESALE INFORMATION FOR SAN FRANCISCO
What? Why? Physical World Presale?
The promise of a world made better by computers and online connectivity has failed us in many ways, particularly when it comes to ticketing. Everything about the process sucks and everyone loses except the reseller.
We’ve decided to try something different that will also likely suck, but in a different way. We’re hoping many of you will be happy with the results, while some may do what they always do and bitch about it.
Here’s how it works:
You (an actual human being) show up at the box office, interact with the ticket seller (another actual human being) and purchase up to four tickets that will actually be handed to you on the spot. The tickets will not be available online or anywhere else before or during that day. All seats (including the best seats) will be available first come, first serve. You may actually encounter other actual human beings with similar interests likely wearing black clothing during the process and potentially interact with THEM. The experience has the potential* to be enjoyable. Nine Inch Nails has always been about bringing people together, living life to the fullest and good times.**
Any remaining tickets will be sold at a later date.
**not entirely true
Are there any other ways to get tickets on May 19?
No, the only way to get tickets on May 19 is at the participating box office location in each tour city. For the San Francisco show, tickets will be on sale in person at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
When can I get in line to buy tickets?
Lineups will begin at 8am on Saturday, May 19
What time will you start selling tickets?
What time will you finish selling tickets?
No new line entries will be accepted after 3pm on May 19. Those in line at 3pm will be allowed to purchase tickets, as long as ticket quantities are still available.
How much are tickets?
How many tickets can I buy?
There is a (4) ticket maximum per person per show
Can I buy tickets for multiple shows?

Are there bathrooms/food/drink/entertainment options?

What happens if it’s raining?
The Physical World Presales will take place rain or shine. Please dress for weather conditions.
Where should I park?
There is limited parking around the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Please plan accordingly for the time necessary to find parking, as well as the time it may take to walk to the venue. We encourage carpooling and the use of public transportation! The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium is a 3-minute walk from the Civic Center BART station. Additional parking and transportation information here: http://billgrahamcivic.com/parking-and-directions/
What if I can’t make it to The Physical World Presale? Will I have any opportunity to buy tickets online?
Yes, limited quantities of tickets will be available for sale via all normal ticket purchasing channels, including online, at a later date (to be announced). Ticket inventory available via these traditional channels will include ADA tickets.
Fronted by the Reid brothers Jim and William, The Jesus And Mary Chain first reformed to play the Coachella festival back in 2007. Despite regular touring – most notably a 2015 world tour which revisited their landmark album ‘Psychocandy’ – it took some time before they could agree on a plan to record a much-mooted seventh album.
Work on ‘Damage and Joy’ (a reference to the English translation of schadenfreude) began in September 2015, with producer Youth also contributing bass and diplomacy to proceedings during sessions in London, Dublin and Granada, Spain. Alan McGee first confirmed that a new JAMC album was on the way by telling Canada’s CBC Music: “They’ve made another album! It’s a big deal! It’s kinda enormous.”
In addition to ‘Always Sad’ and ‘Amputation’, other highlights include a refined and re-energised new version of ‘All Things Must Pass’ which previously featured in the TV show ‘Heroes’ and then on ‘Upside Down: The Best of The Jesus and Mary Chain’; the raw ‘Facing Up To The Facts’ which offers the revealing lyric: “I hate my brother and he hates me / That’s the way it’s supposed to be”’; and the jagged power-pop that simmers in ‘The Two of Us’.
