I'm debating picking up a day ticket to see NIN. I notice Filter are playing but aside from that not really bothered by the other bands. Do you think the light show will be the same as all other current festival dates? Same kinda set list. I'm gutted at missing on the scala tickets and thinking this night appease me somewhat. 90 though.

That's what I'm doing. Just going to drive down for the day for NIN. Flying over to Belfast for Belsonic earlier in the week too. Missed out on tickets in 2009 when they were over here, so I need to see them!

I was starting to wonder if I was the only one going to this.... Good to see other board members attending (maybe).

I'll be at Belsonic too chicken-royal :)

Well it's happening tomorrow and it all seems pretty quiet on here. I'm guessing not too many ETSers are going to this. NIN started with a very small crowd at Leeds in 2007 so I'm expecting it to be pretty similar this time round. The place will be full of 16 year old's who've not even heard of NIN. Hopefully they'll come and take a look and have their faces melted.

Maybe see some of you there.

I'll be there, on the coach heading over but probably won't be on the grounds until 2-3 pm.

If anyone wants to hang out, pm your mobile number.

I feel sorry for all these average pop acts that have to then play to some people who've just watched NIN basically do an industrial rock version of stop making sense. I mean how intense is biffy clyro likely to be

I'm about 5 deep from the rail on the left. Not bad considering I got here at around 5.30 and hung by sound barrier for all of Fall Out Boy...

That was absolutely bizarre. Band were on great form, as tight as you'd ever expect.

Totally different set, no new songs, no closer, no hurt. No visuals, just strobes. Probably the most loud and miserable set list you could wish for - no Copy of A - they opened with Wish.

There was a shocking version of Beginning of the End and towards the end of Head Like a Hole Josh smashed his guitar up and stormed off.

Brilliant though, was right at the front... just would have loved to see the new show!

No guest appearance from Richard Patrick? (Filter played just a couple of hours earlier on the 'rock' stage). Surely a missed opportunity there!

08-23-2013, 07:38 PM
Still no set list yet? Was there any fans actually there tonight?

Scarlet Siren
08-23-2013, 08:10 PM
The crowd was pretty horrific, I ended up 3 rows from the front to the left directly in front of the speaker.

NIN fans were sparse where I was, not many people knew what was going on or were singing along or getting in to it, I kind of felt awkward at first, being surrounded by these young FOB/BC fans, but I soon didn't care. The crowd was pretty miserable.

Delighted to finally hear Reptile live, and TBOTE, despite the first verse not being heard due to technical glitch.

I was really hoping to see the full production on that stage tonight as the stage is much bigger than that at Belfast (seemed a little cramped there but they used free space well). Very unusual not to hear Closer and no Hurt (much to the dismay of the girl a few along from me, overheard her say she felt robbed, it was the reason why she was there... Wah!!).

I did feel the guys were just zipping through the songs, no interaction from Trent, I can't recall he said thank you (anyone?).

Oh, did anyone spot this on NIN Instagram in the comments section of tonight's Leeds photo... Uh, huh.

^^^was it really light at 7.30 tonight? It's the only reason I can think of for no light show, but it's 8pm on Sunday and that's sunset ( it's lighter later further North also isn't it?) hopefully the light show at Reading will entertain the fob fans. Although personally I know more people who know NIN than Biffy - but I am 40, biffy hardly seem like spring chickens though themselves

Agree with everything already said. Apart from the sound glitch during TBotE, they played really well and sounded great. Just a shame their place in the line up and the crowd was awful. It was packed for Fall Out Boy, and between a third to a half of the people there left before NIN came on.

The setlist is up on setlist.fm (http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/nine-inch-nails/2013/bramham-park-leeds-england-33c60c6d.html) (quoted below), seems to be correct from what I can remember. They only played for 70 minutes. Pinion was playing as they came onto the stage, but wasn't being played live.

Yeah did feel odd. Starting with Wish I thought we'd be in for some surprises. I think Reading will have the full light show due to TV stream (and the fact that NME boasts the Talking Heads inspired show for both Reading and Leeds).

i dont know if its naive for me to have expected more for the festival
this is NIN only major uk show in a long time and for quite a few months and the fuck them in between two below par bands
to be honest i think they should have demanded the second stage which is probably a tend, indoors , with the visuals.
that said these sets bring out the some of the best performences.
i flew back from australia to see nin play ireland for the first time in like....13 years and the set was day time, everyone around me was there for foo fighters, freaking out because they didnt know what a mosh pit was. amazing gig

Filter played at Pukkelpop two days after NIN and RP sure didn't miss a chance to blabble about NIN yet again (I suppose he does this at every show even when NIN isn't around). I was lucky to start taping a song just as he started his speech: http://goo.gl/oNddTB

I was about 5 rows back between Trent and Robin. It was the crappy crowd I'd expected for NIN but far better than Leeds 2007. I enjoyed the set but mainly because it was my first show since Sonisphere in 2009. I think the set list would have been great in a smaller venue but I'd been really hoping for Copy Of A etc.

For any of you guys going to Reading I think you can expect a lot more. I did both in 2007 and Reading 07 goes down as one of my all time favourite NIN shows. The crowd were far better than Leeds and I predict they will be this time also. I hoping for the visuals and new songs also tomorrow.

Scarlet Siren
08-24-2013, 10:08 AM
After Reading its unlikely I'll go to a festival to see NIN, unless its a show like Lolla.

Still feeling kind of 'meh' towards this one, and that had NOTHING to do with the band, as always they were fantastic, more so the crowd.... Kind of awkward, these people seemed around 7-10 younger than me (and I'm not even 30 yet by the way) but the gap was apparent.

I've got to get through Fall Out Boy again tomorrow, the thing is, my friend who I'm going with is a fan (bless her) so pray for me all.

Unsurprisingly, I 'm even more excited for Milan now....

I'm kind of agreeing with you SS. Tomorrow will be my fifth festival to see NIN and I don't know if I want to do it again.

Im going to show my age here but when I first went to Reading in 1992 it was about music. Everyone was there for music. Nowadays festivals just seem to be where 16 year olds go after they've got their exam results. I remember years ago that everyone wore band t shirts to festivals to show their identity. There was none of that yesterday. Even though NIN had a small crowd I saw more NIN shirts than any other band.

But trust me, I have quite high hopes for Reading.

Yep it's not a snooty thing, festivals used to be for wreckheads, ravers and hardcore music fans, now they are just full of middle class kids who are only there because it's the thing to do. Nothing against the middle classes (nothing pathological anyway), i only make that emphasis because they are there due to parents being able to cough up, rather than being so into the music they saved up.

it's annoying because now the festivals are overcrowded, overpriced and anywhere decent to get a view from will be packed with drunk tarquins who don't even know why they're there. I remember being right down the front at glastonbury for radiohead, having room to dance and being able to nip to the beer tent and back with ease. True story. And I'm years from 30! It all changed very quickly, TV coverage of glastonbury is what changed the crowds for all festivals and created the market for dystopian monstrosities like v festival

ahem! anyway

Which is a shame really as I'm sure NIN want to see their fanbase at the festival shows as well as reach a new audience.

Funny you say that because I posted on Facebook yesterday something along the lines of 'I've yet to see a Biffy Clyro tshirt but if I got 1' for every NIN tshirt I've seen today I'm pretty sure I could find my next tour trip!' LOL! I love seeing all the tshirts, I feltl like I was back in high school circa 1995-1996 (and I wasn't even a fan then!). I just thought it was unusual not to be able to identify who was there for what, nevertheless I felt very proud to wear mine and show my support for the guys :)

But I agree with you about the demographic, definitely a post exam result crowd... For others it's a fashion parade.

Here's hoping tomorrow will show all those kids how its done and what they're missing!

First time seeing NIN and I loved it. Crowd was a disappointment but as soon as I arrived in the arena I kind of expected it. Managed to surround myself with folk in NIN shirts and we tore it up. Pleasantly surprised at the set list aswell. Sheer intensity from TR & Co.
I've lost my voice from screaming the words to every song and I hurt all over. Job well done. Roll on April.

Well I kind of expected the crowd to be the way it was (drunk, stoned youth club, as it has been for all the time I have been going to Leeds Fest). I was in the guest area, getting close to show time, talking to the accountant for the Kaiser Chiefs (!) and he was curious, saying he didn't know anything about NIN, so i suggested he had to come with me (his wife and daughter came too). We found a decent spot stage right about 15 rows back - the area wasn't packed as the FOB scrotes had all buggered off. Looking at the stage set up. I knew it wasn't going to be what I had already seen from Lolla. Lowlands and Japan (yup, disappointed), but then I heard the strains of Pinion and then Wish started...and, of course, all was forgiven. the area I was in started to fill up with real fans and it was a pleasure to occasionally turn around, and see people having a great time. The set was brutally delivered - no foreplay at all and you could feel the intensity coming from the stage - fortunately, Leeds did not have the smoke machine on 11, so you could see Ilian and Alessandro. Burn then Reptile then Gave Up had me gasping as they were so intense. The accountant was rocking out (as were his wife and daughter) and he kept saying this was the most amazing show he had ever seen. The Frail/The Wretched was a good opportunity to chill/calm down, have a beer/whatever before the last two songs - I was hoping for Hurt but knew within seconds that the show was over. I lost my voice from singing and was still pretty fired up, but the friday line up meant that there was little else to see, and besides what could top what I had just seen?. So I left the drunken/stoned youth club to it and was home in 20 minutes, watching the Lowlands show. I then remembered I had taken two pics (I had pointed my camera and just hoped for the best) and had a large smile when I first saw them.

I do know the promoter - my polite way of describing him to people is that he is an astute business man i.e. a bastard who pays his bills late (a number of businesses have gone bust because of this) but I guess he didn't get where he is today by being nice.

I must say that I've been at Leeds Fest since 97 and it has been getting steadily worse - shit line ups, shit weather and plenty of shithead punters. I did go the saturday nite and the rain/mud was biblical - the worst it has ever been. Even a free bar doesn't make up for all the bad bits but my 6th show will keep me going until next April (unless I come over the US for a Tension show)
