    What's your dream setlist?

    The touring cycle is over, and that means it's time to go crazy thinking about NIN live again! A friend of mine and I were talking about this and both decided to make our dream setlists. This doesn't mean songs you want to see live in no particular order, this doesn't mean something realistic that could get played in the future and seems somewhat likely with just a few odd things thrown in, this doesn't mean anything about production or lineup. This is all about the ideal NIN show you can dream of, with a maximum of around 30 songs to cap it off.

    Assume that the venue, production and lineup all allow for whatever setlist you come up with. No songs are off the table, no arrangement is too complex and no pattern has to be followed. Think March of the Pigs should be in it, but at the end of the set? Go for it. Build from the ground up what you think would be the greatest possible NIN show you can imagine, what you think would have the best flow, order, and presentation.

    This is what I came up with:

    Pinion
    Reptile (with the intro cut, so that the crashing guitars of Pinion lead into that buzzsaw-sounding wall of guitars)
    Wish
    Vessel
    Sin
    March of the Pigs
    Head Down
    Heresy
    The Line Begins to Blur
    Sanctified
    Closer
    Mr. Self Destruct
    Just Like You Imagined
    The Becoming
    The Frail
    The Wretched
    Burn
    Down In It
    Eraser
    Suck
    Satellite
    The Great Destroyer
    The Greater Good (used almost as an encore break, done like on LITS where the stage was hidden)
    Happiness In Slavery
    Dead Souls
    La Mer
    The Great Below

    --Encore Break--

    In Two
    Ruiner
    Even Deeper
    In This Twilight (w/ Zero-Sum Outro)

    For me, the idea of Reptile opening a show is incredible, and I'm fairly sure it's never been done before. Having Pinion offer buildup with a curtain over the stage, then having that curtain fall as Reptile's guitars kick in and the green wall of lights flood through the descending curtain and out into the crowd is a mental image I'd love to see become a reality. Not all of my favorite songs are in this set, and some of them I could probably find a way to change out, but as a whole this is, to my eyes, a setlist that would provide almost everything I love about NIN, transition fairly smoothly from song to song with little work necessary, and allow for a lengthy, pleasing show with a lot of variety.

    I was just putting a playlist together the other day and was thinking how cool it would be to open a live set with Reptile. I like your idea of the Pinion buildup. Another thing that would be cool was if that Great Destroyer breakdown just morphed into Happiness in Slavery. Logical (wishful) next step from those few European performances where there were snippets of Happiness in it.

    Basically a mix up of recent tours - 2009-14. I wanted a bit of '94 too - The Only Time and Happiness In Slavery, but I couldn't work out where to put them. Imagining them soundchecked, appearing on the printed set list, and then just not played. Just 'cause we love a tease, right?

    This is a tough one for me. Tension like structure with fancy production of course, minus Lisa and Sharlotte (they were awesome, but I want a bit more aggression in this show.)

    After going to a show on this tour, I know I could care less what's being played or not, I'd still want CitiBank Platinum American Express, it's everywhere you want to be if you wanna pay three times the price seats. But if I did buy those tickets...I'd prefer to see these:

    It may be probably about 20 songs realistically in a set, so, here's 20:

    A few Ghosts songs that I don't know the numbers off hand but yeah, those three lol
    WITT
    No, You Don't
    Ruiner
    SICNH
    RWIB
    AATCHB
    Leaving Hope
    Adrift
    La Mer
    Great Below

    There are a few that I haven't seen played live that I'd really like to see, but I don't think I'd want to design an entire setlist. Spatter it in as treats with the usual awesome stuff and I'd be really happy.

    I'd want to see Last, Somewhat Damaged, the Great Below, Starfuckers, Happiness in Slavery, Sunsports..... Put one or two of those into a regular setlist and I'd be happier than a pig in shit.

    A dream setlist for more elegant NIN shows, in elegant theatres, wich is something I'd elegantly expect very soon. Trent more sitting at the piano or playing synths with the band than standing guitar-armed. Stage similar to the Ghosts section of the LITS tour. A lot of instruments here and there.

    1. The Frail
    2. La Mer
    3. Home (the final sustained guitar of La Mer fades in the intro)

    4. Every Day is Exactly the Same
    5. The Becoming (semi-acoustic or not THAT aggressive anyway)
    6. Appendage
    7. Non-Entity

    8. The Mark Has Been Made (album ending, fades into..)
    9. Various Methods of Escape

    10. The Warning
    11. synth-Piggy
    12. synth-Discipline
    13. Beside You in Time

    14. The Way Out is Through (from faded BYIT)
    15. Reptile
    16. With Teeth
    17. In Two

    -------

    18. Something I Can Never Have
    19. Down in It
    20. Into the Void

    9. Happiness In Slavery
    10. The Line Begins To Blur
    11. Disappointed
    12. 10 Miles High
    13. The Great Destroyer
    14. Ruiner
    15. The Day The World Went Away
    16. 27 Ghosts III
    17. Just Like You Imagined
    18. The Hand That Feeds
    19. Head Like A Hole

    28. Ringfinger
    29. Metal
    30. Hurt

    Encore:

    31. Corona Radiata
    32. Copy Of A
    33. Pieces Form The Whole
    34. Burn

    Encore 2:

    35. I Would For You
    36. We're In This Together

    Encore 3:

    37. Closer
    38. The Great Below
    39. Heresy
    40. In This Twilight
    41. Right Where It Belongs (V2)
    42. And All That Could Have Been



    Band lineup:

    Trent Reznor: Lead vocals, guitar, keyboards
    Adrian Belew: Lead guitar, backing vocals
    Josh Eustis: Keyboards, misc, backing vocals
    Alessandro Cortini: Keyboards, misc, backing vocals
    Eric Avery: Bass
    Ilan Rubin: Drums

    (in other words, the band lineup that was announced when the comeback tour was announced.)

    And before you complain about the lack of realism: let me point out that this would be just a one-off set (not a tour), several months before and/or after any other shows.
