Thinking April/May U.S. dates including Coachella and June/July overseas.

Hoping for club/theatre tour but I realize that's fairly unlikely.

I think that the new tour philosophy (no tour for years, but reduced to periods) is related to the wishes of Atticus. Family man, and not a tour personality.

I think the less dates a year but less gaps between outings also is a natural solution to Trent's touring pattern problems in the past -- they would tour really, really hard with minimal breaks until he burnt out and the thought of doing it again made him sick. With a family especially it's got to make it harder for the idea of being away from home for the majority of the year to seem appealing.

I just hope this doesn't mean we only ever get arena/festival shows for the foreseeable future, because as great as the spectacle of a giant NIN show is, I'm desperate to get a taste of the more intimate club/theatre setting.

It generally takes more than two month to cover three continents, even if they're intending on doing reduced dates.

There seems to be a general impression amongst the Coachella boards/festival boards that NIN likely signed up to a 3 GV festival contract.

LCD and Kendrick had the same deal.

Coachella could be the 3rd. We know he digs the festival. That would mean NIN couldn't play in the radius for three months before or after. Not sure how that will factor into tour dates.

Really? wow! i guess i got nothing to complaint then...

They have played 3 times here, but only once as a "solo show"; the other two were festival dates.
They don't come here every tour we got: "Live: With Teeth", "Lights in the Sky" and "Twenty Thirteen" but no "Wave Goodbye", so i guess there's a 50/50 chance, but i don't think there will be a Latin America leg of the tour (i wish i'm wrong...)

Trent did talk in one of those longer interviews recently about how surprised he was to find out through streaming that they have a huge fanbase in Mexico, so maybe a Latin American tour is more likely because of that; it's clearly in his mind as a place that has interest.

My goals for next year's North American dates are to see every FL date announced, the inevitable Atlanta date and any New Orleans date announced, along with hopefully managing to catch an LA show or another NY show. If it's an amphitheatre tour (ugh) and they do Red Rocks, I'll try my best to make it out for that.

While the notion of seeing NIN in such a small and intimate venue excites me, the inevitable difficulty of procuring tickets for such a show worries me, to say the least. I hope they announce the tour as early as possible so I can make travel plans. I typically see the Minneapolis or St. Paul show (assuming there is one) and plan a trip around a second one, usually in Portland, OR or Chicago. If they were to go through with the "Still" type of stripped down performance tour, I could see that working well in a club-setting.

Just when I think we might be past that shit, some asshole reminds me not to have TOO much faith in humanity while he drunkenly blurts out a song they're OBVIOUSLY going to play (or in some instances already played while said asshole was buying a beer or taking a piss or something). I'm pretty sure someone yelled "HEAD LIKE A HOOOOOLE" at Riot Fest, actually (at least it's expected at a festival, though).

Pure speculation on your part? Or do you have a reason for thinking that besides the fact that he's about to release his new album and both bands will be touring next year to support their new material? I was about to scoff at that idea, but after thinking about it for a minute, it started to make a little bit of sense. After all, TR and Manson have buried the hatchet again (at least for now) and Manson did mention in that recent interview that they'd spoken about doing something together. A tour seems much more plausible than a recorded collaboration. However, I am selfish and want a FULL NIN set, not another co-headlining tour (though I am glad I went to a show the NIN/Soundgarden tour). But that's the only way I'd see Manson these days; on a co-headlining tour. I won't pay to see him solo at this point in his (failing) career. I do wish the Manson/Smashing Pumpkins tour had come to MN, though – that would have been fun.

This was my reasoning. But if it does happen, I can see Trent helping Manson get his shit together in some form beforehand so he won't stink up the joint.

I would probably go if they did Download - although the last time I went to that was 2015 for Rammstein and it was PISSING down with rain, they called it Drownload it was so bad. Worst weather I've ever had at a festival, I nearly lost a shoe in the mud because the weather forecast was great up until the actual morning so I didn't think to dress for rain. Thankfully we were only there for the day

One thing's for sure, I need to force myself to NOT look at setlists as the tour unfolds. If it's one thing I've learned here, as static as the setlist usually is, they will always usually replace 1 or 2 songs a night as the tour goes on. Kinda like how "All the love in the world" made it's live debut midway through the tension tour. One of these days I'd like to be at a show where I hear something like that NOT knowing it was coming and lose my shit.

I guess that would mean not coming on ETS or the internet for the whole time they are on tour. It's hard to avoid tour spoilers these days when you have 50 music news sites reporting on stuff like this.

If only I didn't look at riot fest before hand, I would have never seen the background world coming from a mile away. If only I didn't come on ETS religiously 500 times a day I wouldn't have seen that post about Ilan sharing the rehearsal of "Letting you"

The whole time at Aftershock I just kept thinking "When is Letting you coming on?" "What part of the show will the Background world be played" lol... I need to stop.

And I was listening to the live recording of the Vegas show on YouTube earlier today, and was surprised how fresh an old song like "Terrible Lie" sounded. It goes to show yo, he needs to start cutting songs like MOTP, Piggy, Gave Up, Wish, Closer and Hurt from time to time. Retire them for a tour or so, when they come back, they will seem fresh and exciting again.

2018 will be the 30th anniversary of NIN... wow... I hope he does something crazy for it. Bring back more PHM songs for the 30th anniversary. Down In it or SIN need to make a comeback. Sin has been gone for faaar too long.

I have seen NIN ten times and of the six songs you mentioned (MOTP, Piggy, Gave Up, Wish, Closer, Hurt) I understand why Closer and Hurt are played because they are hits. Of all the ten times I have seen them Piggy, Gave Up and Wish were played at every concert I have seen. I have even been to shows where they didn't play Closer.

It has been an unwritten thing that when NIN does a stripped down show (no massive lighting and video screens) you tend to get a more varied setlist. It really wasn't like that at the most recent Vegas show, it was pretty much a standard NIN setlist. I actually rolled my eyes when they started playing Piggy. They didn't come on until 10 pm and I know Vegas has curfews on concerts so I guessed that it would be over at 11:30 and it ended at 11;30 nearly on the dot. So when Piggy started my immediate thought was I have seen this too many times. I agree with you Piggy, Gave Up and Wish need to be retired for a very long time. It reminded me of watching a Seinfeld rerun, I have seen it a billion times but I still enjoy it. Other than the new material and the Bowie cover, it was the same setlist I have seen over the last five years. If he wants to play something off of Broken, how about playing Last and Suck.

NIN is great band and has done some ground breaking things with regards to tours and live shows. They have been a huge influence on me and the music has been the soundtrack to my life, but as you said the 30th Anniversary is coming up and the last thing that NIN should become after 30 years is predictable.

Do it. I quit ETS for a few weeks at the start of Tension and told my friends on the tour to not spoil anything for me - I went into it knowing nothing, and my mind was blown several times. Second best show for me - hard to top night two at Terminal 5.

Quitting ETS is easier said then done, lol. I am addicted to this place. It's like one of 3 web pages I spend my internets on.

That's why I've found it's usually easier to just try and attend the first show on the tour. Nobody knows what's gonna happen there. The problem I have found with the first show is, it's not always the best setlist. The setlist (and the band) get better as the tour goes on. If you catch a show near the end, you have a good chance of hearing the best material as I guess they've had more time to rehearse more stuff on the road.

But, as I said it's not just as simple as quitting ETS. I have tons of music news sites in my facebook feed that like to ruin tours as they unfold. I got the most recent TOOL tour spoiled that way. I even went out of my way to unsubscribe to a tool fan YouTube page that always has updates and live videos of the tour on it (I still haven't remember to re-sub to that channel lol). But, as the TOOL tour unfolded (and my show was literally one of the last), updates kept flooding in. It's in the headlines too, so you can't hide from it... "Tool busts out Eulogy for the first time in 15 years at Fairfaix" Kind of shit... and then you're like "fuckers!!" and then your show comes, and you're just sitting there wondering where Eulogy is the whole show... and it doesn't even come up, cuz they only played it at that one show.

So, avoiding setlists used to be a lot easier than it is these days. You'd have to turn off the whole internet while you waited for a concert, and I'm not gonna do that.

I've been away from ETS for a while and it really worked in my benefit for these last couple of NIN shows. I went into the shows with zero knowledge of the stage setup, setlists, even some of the songs were completely new to me. I was completely blown away with everything and I feel like my NIN fandom was renewed. :o

I do tend to keep away from tour spoilers for another band that I closely follow and it does really go a long way into making everything a much more enjoyable experience. It takes some restraint, but it's worth it.

French people: tell me about Hellfest. I see 3 day passes are now sold out, but I have zero interest in that regardless. Do they sell individual day passes later? Or do I need to look on the secondary market? If NIN is playing this (along with possibly Maiden!!), my wife & I will gladly spend our anniversary in the French countryside. Not a bad country to watch the World Cup in as well.

I've never been to Europe, and always wanted to go, so if NIN do have some European shows in 2018, that could be the kick that finally makes me book a trip over there. Was already eyeing checking out a summer festival there this coming year. Depending on lineups of course.

Don't look at it as traveling to see a band you've seen xx number of times, look at it as traveling to see the world and a NIN show just happens to fall in line with when you wanted to go. :)

I think when it comes to Europe festivals are a market that makes sense and the 2017 dates have been warming up, getting back into the swing of things, seeing if they really want to commit to more dates, and it's pretty obvious they've had a blast on them. It was a smaller commitment than a full tour and allowed for lots of surprises, extra events and additional shows without all of the pressure of a big, never-ending stretch of consecutive dates. I think there'll be a lot of headlining solo shows this next year.

Agree - festivals are financially stable and allow them to book mid-week solo gigs along the way. Also the arena tour they did in Europe last time was massively undersold so I'm hoping for more sensible venue choices - e.g. a bigger venue in Germany than in Norway!

It was incredibly crowded. The site isn't big enough for the amount of foot/car traffic the festival has grown to, but more importantly the crowd is very rowdy. Probably the worst crowd I have ever been in, and I have been to festivals all across Canada, USA and Australia as well. It was violent. People there were legitimately out to hurt people.

My girlfriend and I walked away with like 10-15 visible bruises all over and she got her clothes ripped off.

The site was a disaster as well, nothing but "woodstock mud" throughout the whole site. We destroyed our hotel room by tracking mud in, I feel bad for the cleaning staff.

For comparison, we were just at Aftershock in Sacramento last month. Walked away without a single scratch. Was such a night and day experience. Hardly anyone moved at Aftershock. Everyone respected each others space.

As far as festivals go, the aftershock crowd was probably one of the better ones I have been in.

I completely understand that it makes sense for bands touring overseas to do the festival circuit, and if we get some streams from them then that'll do very nicely.
But yeah, surely the odd 'indoors' show wouldn't hurt, while they're here? Even if it's a super-small secret show as we've seen in the states then I'll be trying extra hard for a ticket.

It’ll be disappointing if NIN sticks to festivals in the US next year. There’s so damn many of them at different times of the year now I lost count a couple years ago.

Feel bad for the euro fans if that’s all they end up getting, even if there are some small secret shows that pop up. Not all of the fans can time that right to attend- much less secure tickets, even if they get a fan code.

i don't mind a festival particularly just as long as the vibe is right, NIN at Reading 2007 were breathtaking, but 2013 was bad....would prefer 2 Brxiton shows or 4 again.

Rockfest usually releases their biggest headliner of the festival at X-mas time as a "gift" to fans. Last year they let Rammstein out of the bag right before X-mas time. I wouldn't be surprised if they did it again this year, so we could very well know within the next 2 weeks, at the earliest, if they're going to follow the "x-mas surprise" format they've done the last couple of years that is.

Even if they do get announced at rockfest, I'm gonna skip it. I'd rather hold out for an actual NIN headlining tour/show instead of another festival for 2018. Seen NIN at too many festivals, not my cup of tea.

This is what he said a couple of months ago:
“Trent Reznor revealed how Nine Inch Nails will change their touring model in a new interview with Zane Lowe. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.

“Our plan had been to do some touring next year and kind of pivot Nine Inch Nails from being a band that tours for a year and a half to two years at a time, that then disappears for several years, into one that might do a reasonable amount of shows a year, see how that works for the next bit of time. That plan was supposed to start next year, and some offers came in, and we all kind of looked at each other without deeply thinking it through and said, ‘Let’s play some shows this year.’

It’s just instincts. It seemed like it would be fun, it seemed like when I imagined myself on stage again with new material that we have to play as well, it seemed like something that felt uncomfortable and it felt exciting, so that was reason enough to do it.”

He also discussed writing “Less Than” and if it was influenced by knowing he would be returning to the stage soon.

“When I’m in record making mode, I’m really just out to serve that master, and pursue that vision and see what happens. It usually creates more of a burden when the record’s finished, and live time comes up, figuring out how to translate that into a live environment.”

I'm gonna be in London for the week of February 18. Hopefully, they book something in the area during that week.

I think you might be our of luck, looks like they'll all be summer onward (to match any festivals)
Still hope you enjoy your time here, it's raining right now...it's always raining.

Time to brush up on my Deutsch.

Not trying to be a kill-joy, but if you want to travel to a different country to see NIN you should definitely wait for other dates.

In 2014 the Zitadelle crowd was incredibly casual, people were talking throughout the whole show (some even turned their back to the stage) and the setting was mediocre at best. It starts pretty early and since it's open-air the whole show takes place in broad daylight and people don't really loosen up. It's kind of like a festival, but worse. I don't get why so many great artists go there (QOTSA played there, APC will play there too).

Again, I'm trying really hard not to complain too much, but IMO the Zitadelle sucks. A buddy of mine saw Massive Attack there and said the same thing. Just wanted to give you a heads-up.

Ah, it's gonna be a bit of a vacation. Trying to get a hold of one of my best friends to convince him to come along - he's a NIN fan, but not on OUR level - so it would be an extended weekend in my fave city with a bunch of my fave people. Too good to turn down.

I'm not a seasoned European traveler by any means (and by that, I mean I've never been there, lol), but if one was to consider going, what country's would you recommend killing 2 birds with one stone by checking out/seeing a NIN show at the same time.

I'm contemplating going over for something if the timing/price is right. That's kinda why I want them to just unload all the dates at once to see if this is feasible. Maybe I can make it worth it and hit up a few shows/country's together.

I hear ya man, seeing NIN live is a terrible addiction. 1 show turns into 17 shows, and they're never enough.
I hope they tour NA in 2018. I hope the festivals we got this year aren't all we're getting in terms of shows.

and as far as the crowd sucking at this venue, I would say that means we should all try and get as close as possible to the stage. The closer you are, the less likely you get the types of people referred to. Plus, then it's also loud enough that it won't matter for alot of the songs played.

Well, since NIN only targets capital cities I'd say every place they're playing is interesting in some way. Berlin is a great city, too! I'd go for a place where the next city they're playing in isn't too far away so you're able to catch them two or three times. But it's really hard to tell without all of the dates.

Zitadelle 2014 was fun. It's a cool outside venue with decent sound. I managed to get to the front row so missed out on any of the casual fans and talking others have mentioned :D

Just snagged two tickets for the July show. It's a pisstake that Ticketmaster charged me €34 for delivery to the UK though. Wankers.

ChipRock
12-14-2017, 03:10 AM
Yeah I got an email re Berlin pre-sale too.

If you're going to take a trip to Europe and wanting to catch NIN at the same time I'd definitely suggest Berlin. I don't know anything about crowds for large shows there, but it's a great city to spend time in over the summer. Of course it remains to be seen how many cities will see a proper headline show. I'm hoping for London... just because UK festivals largely suck, in my opinion. Maybe Paris - but then I see there's a Lollapalooza there in July which I guess might suit NIN.

got two tix for the Berlin show just now. Might end up needing 6, but my friends can't commit atm. Sucks. Venue apparently only holds 3500? Psyched about that. For those of you interested in going, two tix ran 115 euros, plus 2.62 for using a credit card, and then your delivery charges will vary depending where the tix go (up to 35 euros if you delivery outside mainland Europe!!).

Same, got two tix! :)

By the way, the German ticketmaster newsletter says that it's "an exclusive German show in the Berlin Zitadelle". So, maybe they won't even play a festival in Germany and that's why they play a solo show in a "kind of festival environment".

While that is true I managed to get a good view later on with enjoyable people, so I had a blast in the end. The thing I liked most aboutthis particular show was that it was very heavy on the light show and we were treated with some rarely-played songs. Seeing them in London after that was especially nice since this way I saw two very different NIN shows on the same leg of the tour.

But yeah, for me that show is a no-brainer. It's a 4h drive to a city full of friends and some business opportunities for me, having a NIN show there is the icing on the cake. But I hope we will get some more dates in or closely around Germany. :)

It depends on how they set up the Zitadelle really. Sometimes it looks like a festival with a lot of food stands and places to grab a drink and sometimes they opt for more people. The range for the Zitadelle is 2.000 as a minimum up to almost 10.000 people. Perfect size imho for an open air show IMHO.

Honestly, given what festivals are left, i'm not sure they will. Glasto and T in the perk aren't happening, They're not at Download, and most of the other festivals are just not a good fit (if they do Reading and Leeds i'll eat my hat!) i'm OK with that, as long as we get a couple of decent sized shows around the UK like you mentioned.

hey to anyone:

please DONT order your papertickets @ ticketmaster (for the berlin-show) if you are from abroad, if it costs you something like 40 euro for shipping.
even eventim.de is about 35 euro worldwide, but they have "fanticket"-hardtickets including artwork, in case you care about something like this.

as far as the shipping goes, I checked:

koka36.de -> 10 euro inside EU plus Ukraine and even the U.S.
dodotickets.de -> 7 euro within EU (yes, this includes UK ... for now)

both (more or less) local regular indie-ticket-stores in berlin, doing their job. please support them and buy your tickets there. of course you also have the pickup-option at their shops as well.
you can even email them or give them a call if you have any questions.
"koka36" = berlin-kreuzberg (a punkrock-legend, downtown kreuzberg, oranienstrasse), "dodotickets"= nice recordstore "dodo beach", berlin-schöneberg (david bowie used to live in this district, in the late 70s, doing "low", "heroes" and "lodger". there is a memorial plaque). so if you'd pay upfront you could even visit some cool places in berlin and pick up the tickets WITHOUT any extra-shipping-fees.

This worries me a bit that it's just going to be more festivals and that's it. What does everyone else think?
The festival shows subsidize the massive costs for traveling over there, and allow them to do the headlining shows in-between.


why release them one at a time like this, just drop a load of dates on us at once! lol.
Festivals want to announce their lineups in a controlled manner on their timeline. If NIN publishes their whole schedule of headlining shows, people might be able to fill in the blanks in the schedule to determine what festivals NIN will be attending, before those festivals are able to make their announcement. Once more of the festival dates start to fill in, we should see the headlining shows start to be announced, once their announcements would give less away about potential festival appearances that aren't yet announced.

Hard to say. The Europe tour will probably be 1-1.5 months. There's enough time before or after that to do amphitheatre venues either in the late spring or late summer, but that'd be a lot of continuous touring, which I think he's trying to avoid. Otherwise, they could do arenas even earlier in the spring (though there's not much time left for ticket sales for that) or later in the fall. If I had to guess, I'd probably put money on a fall arena tour. There's also an outside chance they could do a club tour, but I doubt it.

Spring club tour please. Honestly, I think we’ll have a better idea once Coachella is announced. If they are on the lineup they probably are doing at least a short spring US tour. If they aren’t on the lineup I think the fall is more likely.

They did that for NIN/SG and literally everyone I heard talking about it HATED IT. Probably most because we didn't get to pick the seats, we bought what was listed as "GA PIT" and showed up the day of to get tickets with individual seat numbers listed and a "pit" full of anchored down chairs.
If you don't want to deal with the pit, get seats, but don't ruin the pit for those who want to be able to move more than half an inch when MOTP starts up.

Wow, some venues were sold as GA Pit and then did that? The Detroit show was definitely pulling up seats from the get go. I remember getting BBB to pull up, thinking it was second row and was very pleased to find out there wasn't even an AAA. That's false advertising to lead people into thinking it's GA.

Probably because I am still one of those guys who gets there super early, hangs with "pit people" all day in line, then enjoy walking in and being able to go anywhere I want depending on the stage setup and how the crowd's feeling that show. I didn't hear one person happy about the pit being seats (and assigned seats, at that), of the few shows I went to that tour, everyone was pissed.

Yeah, the NJ show was actually sold as PIT GA and we were handed tickets with randomly assigned seats (most groups of tickets that were bought together were sat together, some were not). We were excited about potentially getting the only actual pit show of the entire tour, just to find out they were randomly assigned seats. That's the furthest back in the pit I have ever been, and it wasn't worth the cost difference between there and the regular seating that started one row back (actually, because of the shape of the seated area vs pit, I would have had a better view because they're raised above the pit). It was an amazing show, don't get me wrong, we got the ASSAULT playlist (the first one of the tour, I think) but the seated pit was terrible and all I could think of was that bootleg where Trent tells the pit to pick up their chairs and pass them to the security so they could have a safe open area to enjoy the show.

REALLY hoping for a Barcelona date around July 9!

But running out of time to book our flights (traveling with non-NIN people).

Anybody hearing any rumored dates?

They do already Madrid July 14. July 2 Berlin, July 6 Belfort. I predict July 7-8 Werchter. I assume they will do a few north Europe gigs till they go down to Spain.
So July 9 Barcelona, mmm.

news for Aerodrome fest. - one day tickets available, NIN plays 30.6.

They did that for NIN/SG and literally everyone I heard talking about it HATED IT. Probably most because we didn't get to pick the seats, we bought what was listed as "GA PIT" and showed up the day of to get tickets with individual seat numbers listed and a "pit" full of anchored down chairs.
If you don't want to deal with the pit, get seats, but don't ruin the pit for those who want to be able to move more than half an inch when MOTP starts up.

Selling GA and giving out assigned seats instead is a monumentally dick move. You must have been fuming, especially if you didn't realise until you got inside and queued for the show.

Yeah, they seem to be following a similar route to Pearl Jam and I will be in Barcelona for them on July 10. Any date within a couple days would be a huge gift!

Are we sure they are even going to tour the US for 2018? Are we just hoping/speculating they do?

Trent said so himself in New York, and I’m pretty sure he mentioned it at other dates as well.

Tour in the Spring? I thought NIN starts the tour after the festivals. Have they ever done a US tour then done festivals in Europe after?

Yeah, he said a few times that the plan was 2018 for a proper tour. I believe it was in one of the Lowe interviews where he says Summer 2018 specifically which is why I'm confused about a possible Spring tour.

Yeah, unless it's some kind of club tour, we'd probably already have dates by now (unless they were waiting on Coachella announcement which seems unlikely now). I think a late summer/ Fall arena tour is much more likely.

Club tour, arena tour, spring, summer, fall, as long as NIN headlines shows within a few hours drive I will be happy.
Please no heat of the summer outdoor amphitheater shows, though. I hate playing the "drink enough to not die but not so much that you have to pee all day, also sunblock every 15 minutes" game.

Am I alone in thinking that they will play Voodoo Fest this year? They played in 2008 and 2013 and this is the 20th anniversary of the festival and Trent does love New Orleans and Voodoo Fest. I have been a fan for many years and have never had the chance to see them live...so the possibility of them playing is a big part of why I wanna go to the festival This year.

There's a Finnish festival that APC are playing in mid-June. There could be a potential route of Scandinavia-Eastern Europe-Prague Festival-Berlin-Benelux-Belfort-Milan/Barcelona-Madrid. But this is my wishful thinking at play too, it could all be nonsense! It's also quite hard to find a comprehensive list of all summer festivals in Europe. The timing of any UK shows bothers me less because I'm already here. I'd like something to force me to visit as many new European countries as possible before The Event.

It was super easy and useful on the old version of last.fm website! Shame that they still haven't reintroduced that feature after the rehash.

Based on no NIN on Coachella’s, governors ball, or Boston callings lineups, I don’t think they are touring the US in the spring.

I would love to be wrong and just see a month long club tour in the spring, but I just don’t see it happening nowadays without at least one festival appearance happening around that time.

I’m expecting European dates in the summer, NA dates in the fall. I’d love for some club shows to come up though.

Yup, it’s getting too late for a spring/early summer US tour along with the announced Euro dates. Hoping for a late summer/early fall tour now. Already a lot of bands have the spring tour announced with tickets available, can’t be trying to compete with people’s money that’s already spent.

Nah, it can still happen i'm predicting a late March/early April release date for EP3 and then maybe some dates in April/May around the US to warm up before heading off to Europe. I can see it happening. If we don't have an announcement by mid February, then I'd say it's too late.

I think they're waiting for the Montobello rockfest lineup announcement. That festival is mid June. Lineup should be out in Feb. I have a feeling they're on the bill and obligated to wait for that festival to announce first.

As for EP3, if we don't get a spring release, I have full cofidence that it'll drop before the EU tour kicks off.

I hope we see some more stuff from TDS come back out again. Reptile never sounded better than at those 2017 shows and songs like The Becoming, Mr. Self Destruct and Eraser next to NTAE material would be insane (not to mention how ridiculously good Burn and Eraser sounded back in 2014).

I want Reptile to become a show staple though instead of a few one off shows. I love that song so much. I'd love to hear The Becoming, also.

Not looking good for a US/NA tour, unless it happens in the fall.

Is looking like two straight summers of shitty, money grab festival dates.
