    Why? They (Trent and Atticus) composed the music for that too. No one seemed to have a problem with them doing Hand Covers Bruise or What If We Could...

    So now he just smiles when something goes wrong? That's not the angry Trent we know.
    While watching that, I was totally expecting a freakout, or calling someone out on turning the lights off.
    Trent's going soft on us.

    I'm surprised they were all able to keep playing in complete darkness. Kudos to the band for keeping it together.

    You're dissing 1M but I'm liking your post anyway, because opinions about songs are perfectly fine

    1mil has its purpose for me at shows - it's the song I use to snap a few pics during.

    Nothing beats the time they played Letting You in Cardiff in 2014 and I spent three minutes in front of Trent with my arms folded and side-eyeing.

    So we can all at least agree Burning Bright should be at every show ever for all of time from now on right?

    I would love to hear the loop closes live. It would be a dream come true for me. I'm fine with any HTDA songs in the set really. The music was too awesome to just go away.

    *Enraged over not being able to attend surprise shows with setlist improvements happening in different countries hundreds of miles away that I probably couldn't even have attended even if I lived in the fucking city, for some reason*

    Fucking hell I'm jelly of you lucky people. Next year can't come soon enough.

    Does anyone recognize the intro music for The Panorama show (I think for all shows)? I think it's an Angelo piece for the new Twin Peaks but I'm not sure

    lol

    I love both 1M and Letting You (and Discipline), so hence my excitement for 1M being played last evening. I hadn't seen it live since the '09 Goodbye shows because it wasn't in the setlist for the four shows I've seen since.

    But, I'm biased and love every song or track he's ever composed. That's why he's my absolute favorite, I guess..

    Discipline was great live. I wish that would be brought back into the set.

    Re: 1M - I thought that was practically a staple last tour. We had it loads in Europe.

    I don't know, but the sound that comes immediately afterward has me wanting the TARDIS to make an appearance.

    Also, does anyone else now really want a shirt with a partially constructed NIИ logo?

    1,000,000 was done at every single 2014 Soundgarden show as far as I'm aware as well as almost every single Tension show. It along with Terrible Lie and Piggy seem like near-constant staples save for rare exceptions and so far this tour has had none of them as guarantees (and TL is nowhere to be found).

    Having Reptile as a staple, 4 new songs a show and the unbelievable Bowie tribute/cover in the mix along with Frail/Wretched and Wish at the start of a lot of sets has me more than content. I don't know how people can look at the context/framework of a festival show and get too upset, especially when you look at the quality of the performances themselves. This band is killing it right now and every song sounds tight, vivid and valid. Copy of A has an urgency behind it that I don't think any of the HM touring had. The only thing I miss is Trent being the one triggering TGD's breakdown -- that was the most wild moment of those Soundgarden shows and added something special to the song, but it's still a great time.

    In general these are intense, heavy shows with a focus on immediacy and presence in the moment in an era where we are constantly flooded and cluttered with distractions, glowing screens and daydreams and I think it nails it -- it helped knowing there was a proshot being filmed at my show, but regardless, the last thing I wanted was to look at it through my phone, and I've never felt so present and lost in the moment at a NIN show as I did in New York -- didn't think about the setlist, didn't worry about how much time they had, didn't worry about anything, just gave in to the music and the group of talented people performing it.

    I've still somehow never seen Only and kind of counted on this being the year that I did.

    All this talk about Discipline, Letting You, and 1,000,000 and I'm over here thinking that Head Down would be the perfect addition to the new live set. It sits really well alongside the new EPs and I feel like it was always incredible live.

    Agreed, Head Down was always my favorite The Slip track live.

    I would LOVE to catch Discipline live. I dig that song. I also am so into Find My Way both on the album and live. And while I don't care all that much for 1,000,000 on the album, I will NEVER EVER get tired of that one live. It is perfect.

    I think the reason I enjoy 1M so much is because one of my fondest NIN live moments was when I saw them for the first of numerous times on the LITS tour in Philadelphia, and I'd managed to make my way front and center on the wall before the opening act had even left the stage.

    And when they came out blazing to 1M, I just remember looking behind me and seeing a fucking sea of crazed, amped-up Nails fans screaming the chorus to the song back at Trent, to where I couldn't even hear him singing, it was so loud.

    That was one of those moments in my fandom for this man I'll treasure into the dirt..

    I've noticed a pattern. Each Festival show had a standalone show announced on short notice. If you guys are going Riot Fest and Aftershock then you should keep an eye out.

    I cannot wait to see NIN back in the UK. I totally appreciate Trent wanting to keep away from the big tours, but I hope that doesn't mean next years shows are restricted to the States.

    Reading the comments here, and some of the reviews online, it's nice to appreciate how fucking on top of their game NIN are at the moment. I know some are lamenting the lack of light show, and the current shows *relatively* safe setlist, but for me it's all pretty close to perfect. The new songs sound fantastic alongside the classics, and much as I enjoyed some of the effects from 2014, I think you can always rely on NIN to kick you in the face visually, even if it is with a conventional set-up.

    I know it's a bit old fashioned, particularly now with all the live stream rips and what-not, but I'm still holding out hope for a proper live album at some point. Maybe even just a sort-of official soundboard as per LITS/Gift would go down a treat. Not to take away from the hard work all the rippers and tapers do, but when the band sound as good as they do it seems a shame not to record it formally. But then perhaps this is what keeps the live shows special when they do appear.

    Regardless, I hope they can keep the momentum up until the later festival shows, and I hope the lucky people in or near those cities get more surprise indoor shows too. So now we wait...

    Has anyone mentioned Trent continuing to sing Closer wrong?
    "You are the honey inside your hive"
    I mean, he's mocking us at this point isn't he?

    He's making sure we're paying attention. Imagine how upset he would be if we didn't notice

    While we're on the same subject, what was up with him going into gibberish for the "Do you want to change it?" line on THTF at Panorama? lol

    At this point Trent's sang different lyrics at the end of Closer for, what, about 12 years? I think it started on the With Teeth tours and I just take it as his official alternate lyrics now rather than viewing them as explicitly wrong. "I AM THE HONEY" makes sense in a gross Reptile-esque sort of way, anyway.

    If not this tour then hopefully next, I'd really like to see this lineup tackle Not Anymore andThe Idea of You -- the chaotic precision of both would be perfect for this group with the style they're invested in right now, and I have got to hear Robin's guitar during Not Anymore's chorus.

    Eh. Even that though ... call me cynical, but when there's a full discography of material to choose from - I would much rather hear a Nine Inch Nails song over their soundtrack work or a band who I never really got into from the same members.

    I'd rather they stuck to NIN, and if they play other stuff to have more of a "look we're doing a cover" approach to it. I feel the same way whether it's HTDA, soundtrack, whatever. I'm more of a NIN fan than an anything-Trent-does fan. Can't pinpoint why, just am.

    Ooh!



    I'm not really sure which NIN songs I particularly want to hear live at this point. I'd certainly like the ending to change. Opening with Hurt would be quite the mindfuck. I do not miss the lack of Slip songs of late. I do miss going to bed covered in bruises.

    Same here. For whatever reason, Trent's outside work from NIN has just never appealed to me in a live setting. That being said, them doing other artist's songs (David Bowie, Adam Ant, Joy Division) in a newly constructed way has always been interesting to hear.

    Different strokes for different folks is all.
