I checked to see the status of my order which says "fulfilled" but I've had no shipping confirmation or tracking number. My heart also sank when I saw its all part of Live Nation as I've had nothing but absolutely shocking service from them in the past.

I had this exact same experience with them. Marked “fulfilled” right away, wasn’t shipped until weeks later. I won’t use the store again in future unless I have to.

I’ve emailed them and asked to cancel the order if it’s not already shipped so we’ll see what happens.

Re Deviations, just seen this linked on Reddit. Vinyl from Amazon in Italy for £22-ish compared to £60 - £70 elsewhere? I’ve ordered a copy but suspect it will be one of those orders which gets mysteriously cancelled - if it’s too good to be true and all that.....

My copy arrived today and I see what you mean - it’s just missing that premium feel of the reissues and is obviously missing a booklet with an article or two like the reissues have.

Am looking forward to playing it though.

Nine Inch Nails pt.2 - what Trent did next.

Yeah, my copy of The Downward Spiral (which was about a third of the price) feels like a more premium product.

Was that the Italian copy of TFD1 you received?!

Yes, was the copy via Amazon Italy.

Sorry.... I'll be honest, I didn't expect it to ever arrive and even thought it would be a dodgy rip-off which would get sent back. Also, how limited was the pressing supposed to be?

I find the whole pricing and availability of the vinyl from Trent and NIN a bit confusing & inconsistent. I'd also have thought they'd just make them available from NIN, or at least try and control it so you can't get them from Amazon cheaper. Or maybe just have very limited editions available from NIN - you buy from them and you get something different/extra for your money.

And then you look at some things like Social Network which must have had a very limited run of vinyl. Why not produce annual runs of all their back catalogue? They must have an idea of demand by now.

I’m baffled by it too. I rushed into getting it, as I expected it to quickly disappear. Good old collector’s remorse strikes again!

I found The Fragile Deviations in HMV for £60 yesterday. Bit of a ****-take, as it was hyped as an exclusive and very limited release.

I got a ticket for Meltdown! It was announced as sold out, but I stuck it out in the queue and got lucky. Could only buy one ticket though, but so happy to see them again. And in a small venue too!

Good luck. I recommend trying to get in the queue an hour earlier than they go on sale. I tried that this morning, but realised at 9:50 AM I was using the wrong link! I got very lucky.

Good luck dude! I certainly would’ve gone for it if I didn’t get lucky with Meltdown.

Position 4482 in the queue. Chances looking quite slim considering there are only 5000 seats...

And an hour later (still 885 in the queue):

"Nine Inch Nails has now sold out, with the exception of whole box hospitality. Please check back for returns closer to the performance."

Already 300 tickets on Viagogo. Something is broken about the whole ticket thing isn't it?
