    I didn't get to see NIN during TF when I was really into them, but I'm not sure the video screen focus came across so well recorded? This stage setup is kind of perfect for their music I think.
    Yup! Annnnd I forgot to give credit to @TheBang who recorded the whole thing. You rule, man.

    It's been a long time since I've done this, but I was just reminded of how I used to unwind on Friday and Saturday nights watching Closure. I might do that again. Even if it's been a while, I also still can't stopping thinking of watching Closure as one of the things to do on a Friday and/or Saturday night in.

    @Eichalvindore - VHS, but I will get around to also finally ordering the DVD eventually. It just slipped my mind as I haven't watched Closure in a such while.

    I'm almost certain Closure was never released officially on DVD. There are the "leaked" files on torrent sites but that must be a bootleg.

    haha, it's either too early or I am too dumb but my teenage-NIN obsessed mind has recently been reactivated so I'm just assuming this means there are genuine physical prototypes that someone is selling on Amazon, which makes no sense.

    Also ... why don't we have HD transfers yet of the classic vids shot on film. I realize music videos are technically crass commercial ads occasionally disguised as art but I'm not a snob/who cares. I wanna see gothic 97 Trent in full resolution.

    (this is the info for the closure dvd set i purchased off amazon...)

    Closure
    Nine Inch Nails
    Sold by: Therockbidder


    [COLOR=#B12704 !important]$40.00[/COLOR]
    Condition: Used - Very Good - Used but in very good condition and plays perfectly. Two disc set only released in South America (Brazil). This version is exactly the same as the 2dvd set shown in the Amazon pictures! Factory pressed and NOT a dvdr. NTSC format region 0 so plays on all dvd players worldwide. In stock and shipped directly from Sweden. Shipping is by Airmail from Sweden and usually takes between 5 to 21 days depending upon destination.*Please note: Information for Non-USA customers only: As of February 2013, Amazon has increased the shipping costs of items sent to customers outside of the USA. I cannot change the shipping amount it shows at your checkout, but since I am based in Sweden I can issue refunds to compensate for excessive charges on cds and dvds. This I will try to do within 24 hours of a shipment being sent. As a guide the MAXIMUM cost (excluding boxsets etc) for a dvd or cd is approx 6-7 USD. I will issue refunds for any extra paid on top of my shipping costs. Hope this is of help to international buyers.

    Yeah, I can't find any info that it was ever released and the wiki says it was "indefinitely delayed." I'm assuming the leaked files are region 0, but I'm sure Interscope would have region-locked it if it were official. They never paid for any color-correcting/proper remastering so you're just paying presumably for a bootleg of the leak.

    I believe people analyzed these dvds from Brazil and found out they were indeed made from the seed0 torrent but also recoded to fit on single-layer discs. There probably is some loss of detail in dynamic scenes because of that.
    On the bright side, you won't have to sit and wait through unskippable FBI warning screens, you know, the stuff record labels usually toss on DVDs because they can

    Thanks to this Closure discussion I watched a little bit of the newly discovered footage for the first time in awhile and found this gem. It's nice to see them having a good time back then:

    The way Trent just turns around and smacks right into it always cracks me up.

    People should’ve never let Glee get as big as it did. Write original songs!
    I've always hated that fucking show.

    The Seed0 torrent is as official as we are going to get, too much red tape for a legit version, so the digital version was "leaked".

    What 95-96 VHS Closure bootlegs are you talking about? I'm not aware of any.

    Ah, you were sort of quoting Trent from the old NIN.com Q&A section. I thought he referred to it as a "guilt-free download." A long time ago now, but it was super fun to get that and the Broken movie.

    sorry-
    i am feeling like an idiot right about now.
    the '95 VHS bootleg is The Broken Movie (which is packed away right now...)
    i don't know why, but i confused The Closure with Broken and some how they became the same thing in my head (?)..
    (prob because some of the same music videos popped up in both of them?)
    ugh!

    ...this insomnia is killing me slowly i tell you

    When I read your post I thought about the broken movie bootleg coz I was gifted a copy on my seventeenth birthday in 1995.

    I watched it with my friends who gave it to me. I remember them being like uh wtf did we just watch?

    I kind of feel bad watching Atticus in some of these recent interviews. He strikes me as being very introverted and not as eager to speak up as Trent is. That said, he does seem to have thoughtful answers to questions that are posed to him.

    Got the feeling that he was still referring to 12 Rounds when he saying that.

    Ah, yeah, that would make sense, too. In other news, for anyone annoyed when people refer to Nine Inch Nails, as "Nails," we now have one of the band's members doing it, so it can't be all bad.

    There's actually a band called Nails too, which could be confusing. I have on occasion referred to NIN as "nails," just to abbreviate it in a conversation. What irks me is when people actually pronounce "NIN" as a three-letter, one-syllable word. That, I think, sounds dumb.

    Yeah, I know about that band, and I agree it's confusing, though they should've thought of that before settling on that name. It's like calling your band The Stones or The Pistols or something.

    When I wrote my previous post, I was thinking about how it doesn't bother me when people say Nails, but it does annoy me when they pronounce "NIN" (unless they're saying nin.com or something), so I'm totally with you there. I also talked to a woman once who was talking about how many "Nine Inch Nail Concerts" she had been to- I cannot abide by that kind of haphazard S displacement.

    Anyway, back on topic...

    I love this! I’ve done the exact same thing myself, just as recently as a few months ago around the time Add Violence came out. I love the ending of Closure from the moment the Bowie/Trent version of Hurt begins, to that epic live version of SICNH, and then that beautiful tour montage set to A Warm Place. Such a great 15 minutes, and a wonderful end to such a brilliant tour doc. I also love watching all the music videos on the second disc; that one starts with a haunting montage set to AWP too, and has those disturbing interludes between the official videos that still creep me out.

    Its funny because I actually bought the Jim Rose Circus live from Moore Theatre DVD based on the brief footage seen in Closure. It’s pretty fucked up what those dudes would do every night during their shows. Manson was particularly impressed with the Jim Rose act on the Self Destruct tour and wrote about it extensively in his autobiography, if I remember correctly..

    You have to get Closure on DVD!

    The first big major concert I went to ever....
    started with some band I knew almost nothing about called Marilyn Manson. I think you know how that went. It ended with him completely naked, humping the keyboard before Pogo carried him off stage
    then came Jim Rose circus with people swinging cinder blocks off of their nipples and the like.
    Then came NIN in the height of Trent's destructive phase. When the curtain dropped for the interlude, I thought the show was over because after that destructive onslaught during HiS, I didn't think he had any instruments left to play on. My thought was "that was awesome but short"

    Needless to say that spoiled me.

    Agreed, but they kick all sorts of ass so it's forgivable. Completely unrelenting band.

    Oddly I have no problem with pronouncing the word "NIN" but think "Nails" sounds like corny fratbro speak.

    I've heard so many live arrangements of Hurt. After watching the Panorama NYC Festival pro-shot, I have to say that, without a doubt, the 2017 version is the greatest one, both sonically and visually. They even brought back the "pre-delayed" (for lack of a better word) chorus from the album version.
