Nine Inch Nails has been forced to cancel their Taipei, Taiwan show on August 12.

Forms and information can be obtained at straightmusichouse.com. Straight music house will begin issuing refunds on August 11th, 2009.
Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor has posted an update about their final US tour dates:
"Getting right to the point, we're going to play a handful of shows in NYC, Chicago and LA starting August 22nd. They will be informal affairs in medium to small venues with longer set-lists, possible special guests, cool openers and other surprises. Upon reflection, the NIN/JA tour felt like we had to rush through sets due to a limited allotted set length and many shows were in daylight - it just didn't feel right to end NIN that way. An offer to headline a festival (being announced soon) set the idea in motion to play some FUN shows to end this up with. If we can get it together we'll film these shows, too.
"In NYC we'll be playing Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5. In Chicago, the Aragon Ballroom. In LA we'll be at The Wiltern, The Henry Fonda, The Palladium and The Echoplex. These should be cool, unusual and unique shows and I hope you come out - this is it.
"So far, The Horrors will be joining us for some shows in NYC, Mew will be with us at other shows in NYC, Chicago and LA, and perhaps more.
"Details and ticket info will be announced shortly, so check back."
Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has issued the following blog post discussing how small bands can distribute their music without the help of a label:
"I posted a message on Twitter yesterday stating I thought The Beastie Boys and TopSpin Media 'got it right' regarding how to sell music in this day and age.
"Shortly thereafter, I got some responses from people stating the usual 'yeah, if you're an established artist - what if you're just trying to get heard?' argument. In an interview I did recently this topic came up and I'll reiterate what I said here.
"If you are an unknown / lesser-known artist trying to get noticed / established: Establish your goals. What are you trying to do / accomplish? If you are looking for mainstream super-success (think Lady GaGa, Coldplay, U2, Justin Timberlake) - your best bet in my opinion is to look at major labels and prepare to share all revenue streams / creative control / music ownership. To reach that kind of critical mass these days your need old-school marketing muscle and that only comes from major labels. Good luck with that one.
"If you're forging your own path, read on.
"Forget thinking you are going to make any real money from record sales. Make your record cheaply (but great) and GIVE IT AWAY. As an artist you want as many people as possible to hear your work. Word of mouth is the only true marketing that matters. More...
Nine Inch Nails frontman TRENT REZNOR stated that the band's performance Sunday (early AM) at the Bonnaroo Music Festival was their last in the US. The band performed in the early morning hours after the 3 hour Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band set. "It just dawned on me that this is our last show ever in the United States," Reznor said around 2 am; "Don't be sad. I'll keep going. But I think I'm going to lose my mind if I keep doing this, and I have to stop." Recently, Reznor also announced that he was backing out of the social media world.
Nine Inch Nails just completed a U.S. tour with Jane's Addiction as part of the NIN/JA tour. The tour itinerary brings them next to Europe and Asia as part of the 33 date, "Wave Goodbye" tour which will end on August 12th. The farewell NIN tour commenorates the 20th anniversary of the release of their first album, "Pretty Hate Machine."
Bonnaroo 2009 was deemed a success this year as sales were "up dramatically" over last year. "I haven't seen the final counts, but we were at 75,000 at least [Thursday] morning, up from about 70,000 [last year]," commented Ashley Capps, president of A.C. Entertainment, co-producers of Bonnaroo with Superfly Presents.

I was just alerted to an extensive forum post that Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor made a couple weeks ago about ticket scalping. It's a very informative and insightful post. Here's an excerpt:
"The ticketing marketplace for rock concerts shows a real lack of sophistication, meaning this: the true market value of some tickets for some concerts is much higher than what the act wants to be perceived as charging. For example, there are some people who would be willing to pay $1,000 and up to be in the best seats for various shows, but MOST acts in the rock / pop world don't want to come off as greedy pricks asking that much, even though the market says its value is that high. The acts know this, the venue knows this, the promoters know this, the ticketing company knows this and the scalpers really know this. So...
"The venue, the promoter, the ticketing agency and often the artist camp (artist, management and agent) take tickets from the pool of available seats and feed them directly to the re-seller (which from this point on will be referred to by their true name: SCALPER)...
"StubHub.com is an example of a re-seller / scalper. So is TicketsNow.com.
"Here's the rub: TicketMaster has essentially been a monopoly for many years - certainly up until Live Nation's exclusive deal ran out. They could have (and can right now) stop the secondary market dead in its tracks by doing the following: limit the amount of sales per customer, print names on the tickets and require ID / ticket matches at the venue. We know this works because we do it for our pre-sales. Why don't THEY do it? It's obvious - they make a lot of money fueling the secondary market. TicketMaster even bought a re-seller site and often bounces you over to that site to buy tickets (TicketsNow.com)!"
Reznor also comments on how Nine Inch Nails has fought against scalpers to give real fans the best chance to get the prime seats:
"NIN gets 10% of the available seats for our own pre-sale. We won a tough (and I mean TOUGH) battle to get the best seats. We require you to sign up at our site (for free) to get tickets. We limit the amount you can buy, we print your name on the tickets and we have our own person let you in a separate entrance where we check your ID to match the ticket. We charge you a surcharge that has been less than TicketMaster's or Live Nation's in all cases so far to pay for the costs of doing this - it's not a profit center for us. We have essentially stopped scalping by doing these things - because we want true fans to be able to get great seats and not get ripped off by these parasites."
