    Dreamy HTDA Live Lineup

    Vocals Mariqueen
    Keys/2nd Guitar TR
    Programming Atticus
    Bass Jeordie
    Guitar Dave Navarro

    Honorable mention to Aaron North as a candidate. Robin should be the live NIN guitarist until the end of time but North isn't up to much these days and I think he would compliment better the droney nature of the music. Jeordie was out at the DT premiere so obviously he's still in the inner circle. While Dave is likely busy with Jane's stuff, he would be an amazing addition to the project.

    I still maintain HTDA would be a great opening act/co-headline for Maynard's Puscifer show. Watching TR go off on the keyboard while MQ wails away? They would be the perfect compliment to Maynard's drinking wine appreciate art vibe, Carina Round not withstanding.

    I wouldn't hold our breaths for a "tour" of any sort since they'll have a toddler and a baby now. Perhaps a handful of appearances at festivals, especially on the West Coast.

    Atticus was credited as the bassist for the EP/band overall in addition to the programming stuff too, wasn't he?

    The liner notes don't give instrumentation details, but in one of the HTDA promos, he's playing bass. I think it's safe to say he's bassist/programmer/synth for the band, Trent is synth/guitar/synth/piano/synth and Q is keyboards/swarmatron/vocals.
    Which means either drum machines, or live band will need at least one more person.

    I have full confidence in Atticus' bass playing abilities, however I figured bringing in a full time bassist would free him up to do other things. I mean a lot of the songs are bass heavy, so I don't see how he going to be triggering a ton of effects, drums, and sythns and such while being completely focused on the riffs. Just didn't want to overload him, but I didn't think about Q being able to do a ton of that stuff while singing though, so that might ease his load a bit and make it more manageable.

    Huge second to the SONOIO opening act.

    I'm sure Josh Freese has an ad in the Yellow Pages

    I'd quite like to hear Immigrant Song live with Mariqueen on vocals.

    Now that we know HTDA is not playing Bannoroo, that leaves only one major U.S. festival (Lollapalooza). I'm starting to think they might only be doing a few shows around L.A.

    In fantasy world they'd play a support slot for Portishead's 2012 tour.

    I would think Trent would be able to pull in a big enough audience to pull off a HTDA headlining tour.

    I've been toying around with some band line-ups...just in case a tour would happen.
    I keep coming back to the fact that I would LOVE for Danny to come play bass on tour with HTDA.

    I would LOVE for Danny to come out and do anything valuable at all, instead of producing godawful Underworld soundtracks and bands from said soundtracks.

    Oh Gosh yeah I know Atticus plays bass. I think Atticus is full out Amazing, but there seems like there is so much more at he could be doing live.
    They also could switch up instruments. Atticus could play around with synths, delays, bass...
    oh possiblities are endless.

    Danny was just my out there dream idea. teehee

    Trent dropping a hint that he will be playing drums on tour? (probably not, but worth speculation):

    @trent_reznor Ilan Rubin's take on the lost art of the drum solo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CwASFrwkAc Well done, my friend!

    @trent_reznor Reminds me I need to practice more...

    Probably not is right, but anything's possible. Maybe he's planning on doing the live tracking for the next round of NIN material that he writes?

    The Lollapalooza lineup is being announced tomorrow. Could HTDA be playing? If not, maybe they plan on touring later in the year, maybe around Voodoo Fest in October?

    do you have any semi-offical source, or is this just some "pointless live speculation" ?

    If HTDA had plans to play live it won't be big festivals. On the other hand, Atticus has a new project, does he have time to tour?
    A very short club tour (small venues) in the big cities would be more logical, I think.

    Now that a tour is imminent, let's do some more speculating. My guesses:

    The tour will start sometime in the next 3 to 6 months

    It will last about a month hitting about 20 U.S. cities; If all goes well musically, financially, and family wise additional touring will be considered (U.S. only)

    The live band will consist of a 4th and possibly 5th member to play drums (Josh Freese? Illan Rubin?) and/or bass/syth (JMJ?)

    They will play tracks from Ghosts I-IV, The Social Network, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; they won't play any additional NIN tracks

    The setlist will not change much from night to night


    What does everyone else think?
