    Almost nothing new or intriguing musically. The finale was another wtf moment. Nobody knew what was going on.

    NIN could do it much better than U2, in fact we've already got TDS live. It was a nice surprise back then because it wasn't advertised as "The Downward Spiral Live 2009".

    But after all these years I am done with nostalgia tours. Past should stay in the past. Even themselves cannot outdo it.

    If a band's gonna tour, they should tour when they have strong, new material. Except bands who have the ability to play the exact same setlist differently every night, like King Crimson, Frank Zappa etc.

    I'm only here to say as long as NIN keeps touring I will keep sending them money. Old sets new sets don't care. Just take my money.

    happened to me twice now. Fail > closer LV 2008 and Frail > Reptile Aftershock 2017.

    It is indeed crushing. Frail > Wretched is one song to me so I can never understand the "it's refreshing" viewpoint.

    I'm hoping they've been working on it inbetween the recent tour dates. After all they've had quite a lot of time

    I went to a show on Tension with a friend, who knew that I was dying to hear either WITT or Into the Void. They played Frail > Wretched, and as Wretched was closing out, he looked at me and smiled (he'd be watching setlists)...and I thought "no fucking way, am I really about to get WITT?" And then that sample faded out, and I was crushed.

    And then they started Void, and I lost my goddamn mind.

    hi, new poster here. i've been a NIN fan since the way back & have seen them many times (including the sort of famous seattle show at the beginning of the downward spiral tour). i got an invite for the presale for the vegas show & was able to swing it. i've seen hundreds of shows over the last 40 years & the vegas show was 1 of the best shows i've ever seen by anybody. great mix of old & new. the band was full on from the start. there's a vid of the whole thing on youtube. i'll put a link at the end, you be the judge. waiting for a good audio tape of it. also, want to say that i appreciate that NIN seem to be very fan friendly on the merchandise. tshirts, etc were only $25 & high quality. i went to the pixies the next night in vegas. they were pretty good but it was nowhere near the NIN show. & they were charging $35 for shirts. i think this lineup is very strong. i hope we get more shows next year. look forward to posting more here.

    Did anyone see Tobacco open in Vegas? I thought the music was kind of interesting but didn't care for the visuals at all. Weird doesn't equal good always.

    Yeah, I saw them at Riot and was fairly indifferent to them. The visuals felt like typical "lol random" stuff that doesn't do anything for me at all.

    Not really a surprise this far on, but the fact that the new poster in the store lists all the 2017 dates suggests there almost certainly won't be any more surprise shows this year.

    EDIT: How cool would it have been if they announced another show simply by having it on that poster and not mentioning it anywhere else?

    Instagram and Twitter have different segments of the video. Perhaps they’re meant to be assembled?

    Fuck. They've enjoyed releasing an album in three parts so much they decided to release concert footage in 15 second clips and make us deal with it. This means by the time we get the Tension concert film, it'll just be a series of .gifs.

    I thought of this too. But really it could mean nothing. If they had a private show they could simply make a unique poster for that show alone and treat it as something separate.

    Not sure if we even saw the same tour here, as Bono sounded fuckin A+ the entire Kansas City show. The entirety of Joshua Tree in full felt really well put together and the minor adjustments they made to a few of the tracks were honestly improvements. As for the finale, I mean, it was clearly a quick little greatest hits set to flesh the show out since Joshua Tree itself is only like 45-50 minutes long. People at my show were hyped as hell for the last several songs.

    i saw an excellent joshua tree show in seattle. i went in with low expectations & was pleasantly surprised. the band did a killer "i will follow" at the end that wasn't on the setlist. maybe the best stadium show i've ever seen.
