One of the most influential bands in alternative music is bringing us some new music along with some tour dates in New York but there's a catch that has some fans a little upset.

As a lifelong NIN fan, I've been constantly checking to see when they were going to be stopping by again New York again. Good things come to those who wait. We can expect a new Nine Inch Nails album called Bad Witch very soon along with a few shows nearby but you have to physically buy the tickets at the box office. This is an attempt to get tickets to the true fans and keep them away from scalpers and bots.

This decision is controversial to some fans who may not be able to get tickets that easy.

"In Person ticket sales? Wow how edgy. F*** your disabled fans, right? Or the fans working two jobs who can’t take off to drive six hours to just buy tickets. Or people who don’t live near a big city too, f*** all y’all."

Just a year after NIN's EP, Add Violence and their crushing performance at the Panorama Music Fest the band has announced four shows within traveling distance from us and two shows right here in New York. They'll be performing twice at the historic Radio City Music Hall.

Tickets will go on sale May 19 at the box offices.

13 – New York, N.Y. - Radio City Music Hall
14 – New York, N.Y. - Radio City Music Hall
19 – Boston, Mass. - Boch Center
