MySpace makes major NIN announcement, promptly deletes account

siNNer wrote in with this link from BusinessWire where MySpace makes a big noise that says "MySpace.com Secures Title Sponsorship of Nine Inch Nails/Queens of the Stone Age Concert Tour."

Not long afterwards, liss and sheets wrote in asking if the NIN account on myspace was deleted, and if so, is it only temporary? Sure enough, at the time of this post, links to myspace.com/ninofficial bounce you back to the login screen, and Nine Inch Nails appears to have disappeared from everyone's friends list. Whoopsie!

Surely, some engineer at MySpace is about to cancel his lunch break and spend a few stressful hours getting things back up to snuff, so hold your horses.

In the meantime, if you're upset that you missed the videos that got uploaded there, here are the direct links to Portland and Phoenix in WMV format. Thanks to Alexander for the links.
