    Nice. Arena was maybe half full. It was like a private party everyone was into it. The floor looked fun. Took seats this time to take advantage of the visuals. Was the hand that feeds always like that? Im usually on the floor by then so i never noticed its awesomeness. Trent was amped up, bouncing around everywhere--that little dancer lol. He said a few thank yous, and welcolmed the band. We got the Big come down and in this twilight.

    Half full? Looked pretty packed when the house lights came on and everyone went to leave. Brain is still foggy from God Speed, definitely different. NIN was in rare fucking form, and by that I mean fucking AMAZING. The lights on Disappointed, the vocals on Even Deeper, the everything on All Time Low... too much for one night, kinda glad I was sober.

    They sounded amazing last night. I always forget how awesome some of the older material is when played live. Particularly The Wretched and Wish. Also, the A Warm Place/Somewhat Damaged part of the set was pretty unbelievable. Loved All Time Low, Copy of A, Find My Way. Only one I didn't care for live was Running. A bit dissapointed we got In This Twilight instead of The Day the World Went Away, but I knew that was sort of a long shot.

    Overall, I thought the show was amazing and the band has never sounded better (although, I think they could probably make due without the new bass player. Guy didn't move around a whole lot, and aside from playing the bass parts on MoTP, I didn't notice anything technically different that I would have missed with just Josh playing). Might end up getting a ticket for the Asheville festival to see them again this weekend now.

    I checked Ticketmaster on Sunday night and it looked like around 40% of the seats were still available. A lot of people did end up moving down to fill in the empty lower seats, so maybe that made it look more full than it really was.


    Setlist photo from Reddit (apologies if you are an ETSer and I just stole your thunder)

    I was in lower 119 and it looked like we were one of the few sections that stood. It seemed like the crowd wasn't very interested in HM material other than maybe Came Back Haunted- in fact a group in front of me had a loud conversation entirely through Find My Way. The crowd seemed pretty cool otherwise, though.

    My personal highlights: The Frail/The Wretched, The Big Come Down, Somewhat Damaged (yes, I do like The Fragile), All Time Low, the visuals on Disappointed, Lisa's crazy solo on Even Deeper (and their screams on The Wretched!) and the entire encore. I was avoiding spoilers so I was wondering whether they would close with While I'm Still Here, In This Twilight or Hurt... never would have guessed that it would be all three!

    Here are my super crappy cell phone shots.

    Fun queue, fun friends, fun show - what more do you need?!

    GYBE mixed up their set for this show and the energy level was off the charts. I was very pleased and hope they continue with that setlist.

    I overheard "Sanctified" during part of the soundcheck, and was pleased to hear it again during the set. The way Pino just owns the bass line is totally sick! I continue to stand by the fact this man is a massive talent and could give a fuck if he's not moving around.

    My wife & I drove down from Richmond, VA and got there at around 6:30. Traffic was fine...until we got to the venue...the state fair was going on right beside the arena and traffic was a massive clusterf**k. We ended up parking at a bistro down the road and walking - apparently, a lot of other people did the same. We got in and made our way to the floor about halfway into GYBE's set. NIN sounded amazing! My personal highlight of the show was "The Big Comedown". The only thing that would have made it perfect for me would have been hearing "Satellite", "Various Methods of Escape" and "I Would For You". Such a great show! NIN never fails to put on the most incredible live experience out there.

    Besides my personal annoyance of people leaving during HM songs, the show was great. It wasn't completely sold but I think NC was pretty fairly represented. Of course Asheville will make up for Raleigh anyway.

    We hadn't been to see NIN since 2006, so have to say TR & co did not disappoint. I've ruined my 16 yo daughter for any other shows, I think. Very happy The Frail/Wretched was played. Find My Way sounded amazing. The back-up singers were used perfectly. Opening band was definitely different and thought-provoking. Well worth our long trip from the coast and suffering through state fair traffic to get there.

    Just a snippet of Disappointed:

    Nice! Your view was pretty similar to mine, so if you took any other video or photos I'd love to see!

    The photos were pretty crappy...even with my iPhone 5 I couldn't really get quality shots with the zoom feature. The video quality is much better since I didn't zoom. I have another snipped of Frail/Wretched that I didn't upload because it's so short. I've seen on the old youtubes some folks who filmed the entire show from the floor!
