Dear Trent Reznor,
Oh, Trent. I am so dissappointed – how is there no NIN|JA tour date for St. Louis? I saw you for the very first time at (what was then) Riverport Ampitheater, I was hoping that I would get to see you there again, only this time from my vantage point in a seat instead of crushed against the railing in the pit. Although being that close to you was kind of awesome. But I digress.
We miss you and the band, Trent. I realize that St. Louis is rarely a priority city when it comes to scheduling a tour* – we are close enough to Chicago and Kansas City to do an overnight trip and believe me I’ve done that for you. TWICE. I even went round trip to Mizzou last fall for you. But as I am entering the final year of my current graduate program, I can’t take off to KC or Chicago on a whim right now. June and August are jam packed full of boring ass classes educational goodness.
I know that I am not the only person who wishes you and JA would grace us with your presence before the sabbatical. In fact, my pal A over at NoMinivan would love it. So would her hubster, who is a big Jane’s Addiction fan. I’ve chatted with several folks on twitter who would also love to see a StL show. We do love you here in the middle.
If you decide to add a couple more shows to the schedule stateside, I would really appreciate a visit to the StL. I think a lot of folks in the area would feel the same way.
*I can not tell you how many times we’ve been passed over by the people I care to see. Yet for some reason, the NKOTB reunion tour is coming to us AGAIN. What is up with that?
