Just saw the full video. Ilan and Atticus during the drum part is outside this world.
The outro is almost identical to the studio version, so I wonder if Trent recently made peace with the original studio version or he just didn't feel like performing this song live until now.

Of course, but after reading that Josh Freese interview I'd thought if the song gets played live after all the conclusion would be something... radical.
But no complaints here. Glad to hear the rework of the ending live that seems to please TR for the time being!

elevenism and I were discussing something like that, how thereís a good chance that the significance of TPD being played may have gone over a lot of heads. Iíd imagine more people were bothered that ďCloserĒ and ďThe Hand That FeedsĒ didnít get played. And thatís both the biggest shame and the most petty shit I can think of.

^ Reasons I only recorded about 30 seconds of it for Snapchat friends - There’s absolutely no way that it was going to happen and not be heavily documented by other people.

I’m starting to think that part of the charm of this tour is going to be “well, each city is gonna get something special that you just had to be there for.” I don’t want to make assumptions or get my own hopes up, for sure, I’m just saying that if you’re counting by cities, so far we’re two for two for something batshit crazy happening that none of us would have believed a week ago.

A couple pages back, I told myself I wasn't going to look at any more setlists. I broke my rule today, on my own.
I didn't come here first and look in this thread. I willingly went to setlist.fm and started from the bottom up...

First reaction: Hurt - Meh
2nd reaction - Over and Out - What the fuck... man I just ruined that for myself. Pfft, may as well keep going...

"The Perfect..." *heart starts beating really fucking fast* *runs to ETS*

I'm disappointed in myself, but on the other hand, there is no way this was going to be kept a secret tomorrow morning. Every social media news site it going to have this everywhere, if it already isn't already. I feel like this song is going to be the worst kept secret of the tour.

Didn't think they could top Broken being played in full, and then this happened.



I thought I'd seen everything, but that Instagram clip gave me chills.

I got chills as well at the end part where it all goes quiet right before the lights faded from green to blue before the "without you" part.

I recognized it and denied it for a second, then instantly yelled oh my god what and turned to my husband to tell him that not only has this never been played before live, but itís the joke within the community as the song that will never be played live. I do not regret spending way more than I should have to go both nights at Red Rocks and both nights in Brooklyn. This tour, this fucking tour.

Me and ImTheWiseJanitor screamed and like violently hugged each other and then screamed some more, and then he said "no. No dude. This isn't real. This isn't really happening" while it was happening :) :) :)

I'd seen a few people post here hoping that more Ghosts tracks would make a comeback this tour, and I'm totally in that boat, however...I would LOVE to see them drop "Play the Goddamned Part" or "I'm Not From This World" in promotion of the new album. But I'm not so hopeful that I don't see how those songs may not translate as well/be as popular in a live setting. Shit, though. Just thinking about that sax in PTGP being played live gives me chills.

But hey, like everyone else is saying - right now, I'd say absolutely anything is possible setlist-wise this tour. And we're only three shows in.

This was my 12th time I've seen Nine Inch Nails and it may just be the best show I've seen to date. It may even top the wave goodbye set at the Fonda. I loved how they played "8 Billion" over the PA while setting up the stage. That's easily my favorite Reznor & Ross song yet but one that will likely never see a live performance, so it was cool to hear it at a venue at least.

Obviously TPD was incredible! Ilan Rubin is an absolute beast. I loved how at the end of the drum "solo" in TPD, he casually jumped off the drum riser to play keys. What a fucking badass!

All of the trilogy material sounds amazing live. "Burning Bright" sounds absolutely massive! So glad I'm going tonight and then I've got 2 in Chicago and one of the LA shows. I'm really excited to see what else they pull off this tour (crosses fingers for "Leaving Hope")

"Burning Bright" sounds absolutely massive!
That song was amazing and the lighting was SO cool. Those little panels really looked like a bunch of fires burning, especially with the smoke machines billowing through them. Was that the first time "Burning Bright" was played live as well?

I don't know yet what time my wife and I are leaving but I'm hoping to be on the road by like 4:30 (height of rush hour!) and then we're going to stop at like Chipotle or something on the way to eat before getting to the venue. We're in GA and I'd love to meet any of the rest of you going tonight, especially if it means we sit near each other. I'm fucking obsessed with this band and sitting near people who don't get it takes away from the experience. My wife is a fan but not to the extent I am. I want to be able to look at someone during the set and not even need to say anything because they know exactly what's up.

I have a feeling that shows with one date will receive equal treatment. The name of the game for this tour so far seems to be "something special every night." By nature, I guess that would invalidate the possibility of TPD being played toooo frequently, though. But I guess there's no real way to tell this early into the tour. Hold fast hope!...And to the hope that we might actually get some love in the KS/ St. Louis areas in the near future!

I'm so sore right now, and it's unclear whether it's from climbing uphill to the venue or the savage fucking my soul took last night. The more I think about it, the more I realize how chock-full of songs I personally wanted to hear that setlist was. "Me, I'm Not," TPD, TGD, FINALLY hearing TDTWWA after a literal decade of it not popping up at any shows I went to, "Burning Bright," the majority of Bad Witch...The 550+ mile drive from the other end of Kansas was worth every inch, and the second show hasn't even happened yet.

This was my EIGHTH time seeing them, and HALF of the setlist was songs I'd never seen played live.

Oh, sorry. It looks like either a baritone guitar or a bass missing the traditional headstock (https://www.google.com/search?q=headless+bass+guitar&num=50&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS797US797&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwixn8vSqMfdAhVi1oMKHcIlDHUQ_AUIDygC&biw=1322&bih=947&dpr=2). It was pretty insane when the song started and I was on the left side but I could've sworn at one point I saw a stand-up bass, but I think I was suffering momentary delirium.

I'm gonna be getting there around 4:30 or so, hopefully. If I can get reception at all, I'll post here and maybe we can all try to sit in a row or something! That'd be dope. But first things first - merch booth, heh.

Those lights WERE killer. So minimal and so effective, perfectly suited for this tour. They created either a shimmering effect and a bit of a nervous tension-sensation, depending on the song. It wasn't the first time they'd played "Burning Bright," either, but it was the first time for me, and that alone would have been a high point, even without TPD.

Yes! This was my fifteenth and I am so, SO thankful for almost all of the staples being shelved last night. It makes me think tonight's going to be much more "typical" of a set and that's fine, but hopefully there's still a few surprises. I love how the sets so far are much more reminiscent of the 2005 club tour where there seemed to be no discernible "structure" to the sets every night. It makes it much more fun not knowing that when "Gave Up" comes on, we're going into the "slow part" of the set for the next 3 songs.

I really, REALLY hope we get In This Twilight tonight. At this point, that's pretty much the only song I've never heard live and I've been screwed out of it because of venue curfews on at least two occasions.

Sweet Jesus! TPD!!!!! I WISH I could see this live.

Based off my youtube viewings... amazing performance and sounds. Totally NIN.

Ilan is quite the talent!! I wonder how much of the perc is Ilan and how much is Atticus? They must be passing the live kit through some specific filters to get that "perfect" sound!

Amazing job by all... I wish I could have been there.

Please come to Canada.



I think this version sounds better. It's a bit more on the lower end, but the high ends are not as overpowering as the version above.

I am slightly worried about this, I hope with only one show in some places he doesn't feel like he can only fit the standered hits in the set. Of course that is what red rocks basically got, the normal and a few slightly less regular hits and oh here's the perfect drug. So maybe as long as he squzzes one or two rareites in like we're in this together or sunspots, stuff like that mixed into a standered set would please most I guess. Every show I am sure will be a surprise.

Part of me wonders if having Atticus and Ilan in the live band might have convinced Trent to do the song. They might have helped Trent re-think how it could be played. The more recent collaborations with David Lynch might have something to do with it too.

Or now Mr. Self Destruct, which is even more brutal of an opener.

^ Reasons I only recorded about 30 seconds of it for Snapchat friends - There’s absolutely no way that it was going to happen and not be heavily documented by other people.

I’m starting to think that part of the charm of this tour is going to be “well, each city is gonna get something special that you just had to be there for.” I don’t want to make assumptions or get my own hopes up, for sure, I’m just saying that if you’re counting by cities, so far we’re two for two for something batshit crazy happening that none of us would have believed a week ago.

Lots of vids but not a "fucking great" one though. Never overestimate people, considering every setlist is unique and got some crazy stuff. So if you plan on filming a very good take, record it ! Or just enjoy it fully without using your fucking phone I guess :p.

I would have come to one of these but the few thousands euros it can take is a bit much unfortunately..

Don't get me wrong, I love Fireman into Branches, but I've already seen it.

I'd shit myself if I heard the first drum hit of Mr Self Destruct!

Now I'm Nothing is probably my favorite as well, but I don't want to hear it because that'll mean he's "done" again.
I've had my suspicions that half way through this tour he's gonna be like "yep this is it btw, bye"

I’ve had enough held-up phones with unfocused video on phone screens obscure my view of the stage for long enough to realize that sometimes, you really, really don’t need to film a whole song out of focus and with your phone microphone, and yet people insist. Sentimental value/social media likes, I guess. I’ll snap a picture or short clip now and again but normally, they’re either just for myself or to rub it in a friend’s face that they can’t be there. Maybe that’s twisted, but it’s so fun.

A dude in the row ahead of us last night was filming a video and it was literally just blurred dots of light on a black background. Homie, what’s the point? Who wants to rewatch that? *shrug* To each their own.

It's super-annoying when people film on their phone, and distracts from the actual stuff happening on the stage, especially in tight quarters when buddy's armpit is right in my face so he can get his terrible autofocused (blurry) video clip of blown-out strobe lights from above everyone's head. Yuck. But I'm not bitter (actually, I kind of am, this was a recurring problem last night at the Gary Numan show I went to see). If you're on the floor you probably can't see shit anyway and your big touchscreen is a huge menace to people around you.

It’s shit like that that makes me try to stick to a personal rule I picked up from somewhere: If I’m filming a show, I’m holding that phone as “in my own face” as possible, because I’m not about to be that guy for someone else. If anyone’s experience should be hindered because I’M filming on my phone, it should be mine. If that isn’t possible or I just don’t think it’s worth it, the phone stays in the pocket.

I was worried about this on the NINJA tour with having only 1 Toronto show that I was attending but I got Mr.Self Destruct, The Becoming, I Do Not Want This, and I'm Afraid of Americans - was hoping for Ruiner too that night but was quite happy with the setlist! Crossing my fingers for Vegas...

I'm hoooping it was filmed (who are we kidding, it was, but that doesn't mean we'll see it for sure), but at least a couple of the cameras on stage were being used for the house screens. Not to say it isn't possible! If that video gets out I'm gonna watch it every single day until I get sick of it.

I think there is better than 50/50 chance they play a set of all three EPs back to back to back during this tour.

I'm not so sure they will. I can see 1 of the 3 being played in full, like Broken was and then a bunch of classics after. But think of it this way, as a casual fan that wants to hear Hurt, Gave up, THTF, Wish, only etc. how angry would you be if you went to a NIN show and heard NOTHING but new songs. I think he would piss a lot of people off by doing that.

Don't get me wrong, I personally would *LOVE* the thought of all 3 EPs being played back to back in a concert. Just saying, if fans are already getting all up in arms for not hearing "Closer" live, imagine how many pissed off fans there would be if they paid $150 to just hear the 3 new EPs and not get anything old at all.

It won't happen unless it is previously announced. Like Weird Al recently did a "no hits" tour, and he marketed it as so. He specifically said don't come if you want to hear the singles, because this will be a set of rare songs, no singles will be played, if that is what you want this is not the tour for you. If NIN was going to do it, they would probably sell tickets in advance saying "The trilogy tour: Come hear all 3 EPs played back to back"

Part of me wonders if having Atticus and Ilan in the live band might have convinced Trent to do the song. They might have helped Trent re-think how it could be played. The more recent collaborations with David Lynch might have something to do with it too.

I look back at the previous incarnations of NIN over the year, and I don't think it could have been pulled off without this combination of musicians. Not knocking any of the previous members. They were all good in their own ways, but I think this lineup *IS* the definitive NIN lineup now. I used to think the Fragility lineup was the best live lineup, but they were more sloppy, which isn't a bad thing. That's what the band was going for in those days. A Raw, energetic, chaotic approach on stage, where it was dangerous to not only be in the pit for one of those shows, but to be on stage as well. No one was safe. But the fragility lineup, wouldn't have been able to pull this song off. Not even close. I don't even think the [With_Teeth] lineup could have pulled this off either.

Live NIN is like wine. It gets better with age. These guys are on the top of their game now more than ever.

So with TPD now finally being played, what other rarities could we expect? I'm hoping for Now Im Nothing, Great Below, WITT, maybe even 10 Miles High or AATCHB.

And All That Could Have Been is my top choice!

I'm not so sure they will. I can see 1 of the 3 being played in full, like Broken was and then a bunch of classics after. But think of it this way, as a casual fan that wants to hear Hurt, Gave up, THTF, Wish, only etc. how angry would you be if you went to a NIN show and heard NOTHING but new songs. I think he would piss a lot of people off by doing that.

Don't get me wrong, I personally would *LOVE* the thought of all 3 EPs being played back to back in a concert. Just saying, if fans are already getting all up in arms for not hearing "Closer" live, imagine how many pissed off fans there would be if they paid $150 to just hear the 3 new EPs and not get anything old at all.

It won't happen unless it is previously announced. Like Weird Al recently did a "no hits" tour, and he marketed it as so. He specifically said don't come if you want to hear the singles, because this will be a set of rare songs, no singles will be played, if that is what you want this is not the tour for you. If NIN was going to do it, they would probably sell tickets in advance saying "The trilogy tour: Come hear all 3 EPs played back to back"

All good points and you're probably right. I could see it happening in NY (4 shows total between RCMH and Brooklyn) or LA. Counterpoint: Trent DGAF about fans whining. Counter-counterpoint: You're probably right.

I just listened to the "God Break Down the Door" performance from 9/14 and holy shit, I am so bummed I missed that. I never would have guessed it from the record, but that's gotta be my favorite live NIN performance since While I'm Still Here/Black Noise from Tension. That climax is insane.

Also, I enjoyed Trent taking special care to talk about how excellent and particularly underrated Year Zero is. He knows what's up.

I’ve had enough held-up phones with unfocused video on phone screens obscure my view of the stage for long enough to realize that sometimes, you really, really don’t need to film a whole song out of focus and with your phone microphone, and yet people insist. Sentimental value/social media likes, I guess. I’ll snap a picture or short clip now and again but normally, they’re either just for myself or to rub it in a friend’s face that they can’t be there. Maybe that’s twisted, but it’s so fun.

A dude in the row ahead of us last night was filming a video and it was literally just blurred dots of light on a black background. Homie, what’s the point? Who wants to rewatch that? *shrug* To each their own.

I agree, hence the "So if you plan on filming a very good take, record it ! ", fuck everyone who thinks filming more than 30sec for the memory is necessary. But hey, why not get a 10sec snippet for a multicam or somethin if you have the last mega-giga-phone-with 4K-60-FPS-ISO without putting it above everyones head.


Clearly "The Perfect Drug" was filmed from the stage - but who knows if we'll see it. Either way, with all this footage, someone's bound to make a great multi-cam at the very least.

I think it's always for the screens on the side of the stage. But maybe they save the vids sometimes.

Well, the lighting guys would have at least been "in the know". That lighting on stage was designed specifically for that song. No way they would have been able to improvise that on the spot. It was too spot-on to have been "on the fly"

If he somehow was able to keep that song a total surprise to everyone except who was in the band, then kudos to him. But Someone in the NIN camp would have heard them at least rehearsing the song.

Question is: Do you guys think this was a 1-off appearance of the song ever or do you guys think it will pop up again this tour?

It's no doubt been rehearsed many times throughout the years. Was rehearsed as early as the 2005-2006 with teeth tour to my knowledge. There were those "with teeth live rehearsals" that were leaked many, many years ago and apparently the perfect drug was rehearsed with that set, but no recording ever surfaced, unfortunately.

I'm more curious to see this festival setlist than I have been in a very, very long time. If he's willing to play some of these older gems this tour, alot of them would work just dandy at a festival. A festival/casual crowd would be into songs like Mr. Self Destruct, Happiness & especially The Perfect Drug (was a single).

i remember an interview with Trent in 2005 around the time With Teeth came out on the BBC, where he said he thought the Perfect Drug was the worst song he had ever wrote .which is just absurd and baffling its one of his best commercial sounding tracks.
almost like he was being provocative on purpose!! its like Bowie saying Heroes is one of his worst tracks, never made sense
I always liked the Drum n Bass influence in the track, in the 90s in an interview around the time the song was written he said that the mid 90s drum n bass scene was his biggest inspiration at that point.
and again as others have said it sounds so easy to play live. wtf?
Where is Everybody is the next track he has to play, one of the best, biggest, fattest epic tunes on the Fragile...another track he bizarely seems to dislike...and more Were in this Together its only been played about 3 or 4 times.

Also Was it Worth it from Fragile Deviations, a mindblowing instrumental track I have no idea why it did not make it onto the Fragile?? or at least a B side, would sound good live too.

"So, we were talking backstage, and we decided we're going to move here. We're actually going to squat right here at Red Rocks. And were gonna take up a residency and play here for the rest of our years... so get comfortable."
