One of my favorite things is there will be little chance of knowing what song is coming next In the set (with the exception of maybe the bad witch tracks grouped together). In the past, things could be somewhat predictable from that standpoint.

As beautiful and awe-inspiring as the visuals were on the LITS tour, I went to 2 shows and they had literally the exact same setlist (except the second show was minus God Given). Even the same Ghosts songs. I won't complain, it was still an amazing second show, but there is something to the whole "I know what to expect next" that just didn't seem right.
This tour, the fact that you have NO idea what is next (even if you hear THTF, HLAH may not be next, hell I didn't even get THTF two of the 3 shows I've been to this year!) you don't know what the opening song will be... or the encore, or even when or where or what the "slow" part is... it's amazing.
If all it took for setlists this varied was a piss-stained sheet and some "no fucks given" then by god throw away the big visual productions forever because I will take a decade of shows like this without hesitation.

I remember Bill Pulsipher saying in 2013 how he hated those fancy light shows and static setlists every night and wanted NIN to return to the 2009 style of no fancy stage show and a rotating set of deep cuts....

Hope you're not implying I hated the light shows, those were amazing performances and I am SO glad I can say I saw both legs of the LITS tour, 2013 festival tour, Tension, and NIN/Soundgarden's visual setups because those were fucking experiences.
I'm just glad Trent is able to blow the setlists wide open.

At least you can still leave when the last song starts playing.

From what I've read seen, this tour looks and sounds amazing. I much prefer the minimalistic aesthetic to the fancy effects, both because it feels rawer and more in line with the NIN I grew up loving, and also because it facilitates far greater variation in setlists.

The sets they're playing are tantalizing and filled with great material and inspired sequences. I loved that they played Broken, then teased TDS the next night by opening with Mr. Self Destruct and Piggy, then teased Fragile the next night by doing the same thing. Creative little flourishes like that across shows are what makes a tour stand out.

Don't have tickets to anything because they didn't play Philly, but am now thinking I need to somehow score a Saturday Radio City and make the trip to see one show.

I imagine these shows are much less stressful logistically for the band too which might add to Trent enjoying them more. I remember the behind the scenes of Tension where he was saying the music was pretty much sorted but the production was causing nightmares and working round the clock

The flip side is probably more stress on the band members trying to learn a bunch of songs they’ll only play a handful of times through this tour.

Re: Tension, I thought they ditched a lot of the production late, only to add the back up singers and a bunch more HM songs.

This is is a great tour, no doubt. A lot better than 2009 IMHO. I still Love he high production stuff though, and the average fan entering a show probably doesn’t know or care what they played the show prior or what they’re going to play the next show.

Theres still plenty of affordable tickets to the D.C. shows. Distance wise it isn't that much different but the tickets are more available and GA

If setlist.fm is accurate, looks like tonight's show had another great set. Sanctified, Dear World, coming back, TPD, Physical. Short encore, though.

09-29-2018, 11:27 PM
Yeah, it's more the timing. If the Washington shows were on a weekend, I'd go to those. But Philly > DC on a weeknight is impossible unless you take off work due to traffic, then you get back too late to reasonably go to work the next day. I have pretty minimal days off, so I'm eyeing that Saturday Radio City as being the only feasible option time-wise.

Definitely would prefer the Washington shows in terms of location, pricing and venue, though. I find NYC a drain in almost all respects.

I can't help from feeling screwed over for the Memphis setlist. Our only older rare songs in Memphis were covers of Metal and Parasite and I'm afraid of Americans . Looking at flights to Detriot and seems I could go for 160 round trip and my brother in law lives in Toledo so I could stay there but would still need to rent a car.....hmmmmm trying to talk the wife into going and just chilling in Toledo while I go to the shows but I don't know if I want to do Detriot solo although the 23rd is my birthday.

There was a guy with a rig in Memphis on stage recording Metal and a few other songs. They could be for promos, or something more. Dunno.

I have a stupid question... didn't know where else to post it... so... for this tour, CABAI, will there be more dates in 2019 for the US? Or are the dates listed for the rest of 2018 it for NA? I saw them the second night at the Fox in ATL and have been kicking myself for not going both nights. I have seen NIN countless times but it has been a while and I forgot how fucking awesome he is live. I got chills when they did 'Now I'm Nothing'... first time for me live.

And now it's like I need another fix. I'm trying to figure out how to see them again without it costing a small fortune. New Orleans is looking like the best bet but even that might be a stretch.

I find it kind of odd that he didn't play any dates in Cleveland and/or Pittsburgh since he is from that area of the country (as am I).

Thanks for any info anyone can give.

Well, the tour does have in its name the word "Infinite," so you've got that to go on. :p

If there is to be a Spring 2019 leg, and you're wondering when the announcement might come, all you can do is try to deduce from this tour (and to a lesser extent, past tours) the amount of lead time there will be. The tour routing of late has made reading the tea leaves difficult. Lots of major markets missed, several major markets blessed with multiple shows. Smaller venues appearing to keep demand high, though. Vegas and LA are perhaps seeing saturation, while other areas are salivating.

Any tour prophets out there?

Paraphrasing in chronological order:

1. Last year - we are planning on doing a smaller amount of shows per year for the next however many years (then manage to book 5-6 months worth of shows for 2018 [emoji13])

2. Sometime over the summer in Europe 2018 - don’t know when we’ll be back- if ever

3. Within the last week or two - we aren’t retiring from touring

This is a guy who has always had a love/hate relationship with touring. My best guess is he’s not done but I wouldn’t count on 2019. If it were me, and I could swing it, I would try to get to an additional show.

I gave up on waiting for NIN to come to Canada so I booked a trip to Vegas which was cheaper than flying across Canada for a show, there are still lots of tickets available and if you do the hotel and flight combo it's pretty affordable. I thought about New Orleans too but tickets were almost twice as much as the Vegas shows. I'm hoping since NIN just did 3 dates in Vegas back in June these two new shows will have more of the deep cuts they've been playing recently.

"This is a guy who has always had a love/hate relationship with touring. My best guess is he’s not done but I wouldn’t count on 2019. If it were me, and I could swing it, I would try to get to an additional show."

At the second ATL show Trent did say that this is the most enjoyable tour he's done in a while. Hopefully it will be enough for him to add some dates in 2019 after a hiatus with the family for the holidays (speculating of course).

Will definitely check out the Vegas option. Should be able to get some good flights out of ATL

There are some rumors they will be playing in south America next year, in some days the bands from lollapalooza will be announced, so if they are in the lineup, there will be a big chance to see more dates

I'm pretty sure the love/hate comes from loving performing but hating touring (especially now that he's a family man)

we kept hoping (myself included) that the long gaps on the tour dates meant more shows being announced. I think they actually mean family time and there's not a thing wrong with that

Kyle
10-02-2018, 02:07 AM
And on a related note, just because it's family time doesn't mean he's not also working and the fact that the only show I can afford to attend is the first after an extended hiatus makes me hopeful that we'll get something really cool

Well... I took your advice. Me and a buddy (coming from Ohio) are flying to Vegas to see both nights. Already booked the room (at the Hard Rock, got a killer rate and we'll split the room) and bought floor tix for both nights! All that's left is booking a flight. The wife has some extra points she'll use for me. ;)

Can't wait to see them again... and again! Gonna be a pretty fun next few months. In January, me and the same buddy, as well as the Mrs. are flying To Phoenix to run the Rock n Roll Marathon (this will not be fun :p), then heading to Jerome/Cottonwood, AZ to visit Caduceus Cellars again. Will be the first time for my buddy.

And more than likely I'll be gong back to the Fox in ATL to see a Perfect circle in October. Fuck it all... you only live once. :eek:

I'll preface this with the fact I am no fan of them. And their live performance didn't help. It pains me that I have to sit through them again, twice, in Vegas. I watched Tobacco from the Lobby, and they were vastly more interesting than JMC. Wish I would have went in.


And BTW... did anyone see Trent fall on the second night in ATL early during Terrible Lie? I can't help but think a younger Trent would have went nuts and start smashing shit. Ahhh the old days...

I'm only really familiar with "Psychocandy", but I enjoy their sound overall so it was a good show. I don't think I've ever disliked anyone Trent has picked as an opening act besides Street Sweeper Social Club.

However, Tobacco stole the show opening act wise when I saw them this past weekend.

Glad I could help! - I'm looking at these shows as possibly being the only chance we'll have to see The Perfect Drug, Happiness in Slavery, etc live before another NIN take another long break from touring. It could be like the Wave Goodbye tour followed by the Tension tour 3-4 years later... but they seem to be enjoying themselves so if they come to our towns next year that will be a bonus!

That thing directly below the mic? Looks like a gas station bottle of 5 Hour Energy drink. Gotta get caffeinated-up when staring at a screen all night and turning knobs lol.

That would be a “no”. I think the only HM tracks played have been Copy of a, CBH, and Find My Way.


With this big a gap in shows, I wonder what a band does during a tour. Go home and eventually catch a flight I imagine.

Random question, but anyone know of a good fixed/fast lens, point & shoot camera for concert photography (and the occasional video)?

My camera died during TVOTR's "Dear Science" 10th anniversary show and I borrowed a Canon SX720HS for Atlanta, but didn't like the results.

To make it relevant to this thread, reddit user sunlips posted some great video snippets from Atlanta #2:

I would never compare them to Oasis. They are more My Bloody Valentine / Sonic Youth type. More straightforward though. But noisy af (and that’s a good thing)

Found J&MC to be a bit boring as well. They definitely weren’t bad, and the sound was great, but too many of the songs sounded the same-ish. They did play one track that seemed to be a bit heavier than the others.

Yeah, I’m with ya. I was frustrated in Memphis because people were being tools while openers played.

This is admittedly really dumb, but I try to go out of my way to be super encouraging to opening acts even if they aren’t my thing. They get all my attention and plenty cheering during their set because it would seriously bother me to think of some musicians feeling bummed that people were disinterested or even hostile while they played. Plus it also seems disrespectful to the main act who probably picked the openers themselves and may even be friends with them etc.

JAMC dont need NIN fans to love them. They're doing just fine being the godfathers of Shoegaze and Noise Pop. It would be nice if people were respectful. but I doubt they really give a rats ass if they aren't adored by NIN fans.

I went to Atlanta night #2 and in spite of being a fan for more than 20 years I totally missed the significance of the opener now I’m Nothing followed by Terrible Lie.

Apparently this is what they regularly played back in ‘91.
https://youtu.be/-9Xp-DluqmQ

So this was truly a rare treat and a real gift for the longtime fans. At the time I recognized the song as “the only deep cut I don’t know very well” but now I realize what a mind-blowing moment that must have been for some people and how Trent himself was recalling his earliest days doing this.

Pretty cool.

62 unique songs on this year, 59 total on Cold and Black and Infinite (only ones played in the summer, and not on CBI were I Can't Give Everything Away, SICNH, I Do Not Want This.) More than NINJA (52.) And slightly less than they did in all of 2009 where they did 70 total unique songs (covers included.)

I got to see that opening in KC in 2009 and it gave me chiiills! I’d only heard of it happening in the past, never heard “Now I’m Nothing” before (saved it in case it happened at one of the shows I went to, nailed it). Fingers are SUPER crossed that we get to see NIN>TL in Chicago. Kudos on getting to hear it in person! It’s one HELL of a tone setter.

I just got a new IEM matrix recording from a show in Japan this year.
Before I get bombarded by PM requests, I already shared them with Ryan (and some of my friends) so it could be shared via ninlive website later on.

The quality of this recording is phenomenal. You could actually hear what Atticus (and oftimes Cortini) is adding to the live set. One of my favorite from this gig that shows this is I'm Afraid Of Americans.
TR's vocal is very prominent in the mix, throughout, but in a good way. As you guys already know he sounds great as he's ever been. You could almost hear him screaming on Branches/Bones.
Other highlights include Even Deeper, Shit Mirror, Ahead Of Ourselves and God Break Down The Door.
Make sure you get the recording once it gets released. One of the best NIN show I've been to, to be re-experienced in sublime quality. You won't be disappointed!

Damn, I remember going to this! It was also my first road trip to see a show ... can't believe it's almost been 10 years now. Wish I had the chance to see more stuff at Starlight Theater, really cool venue. I remember being a little bummed about this set compared to some of the other NIN|JA tours since we got a lot of staples at the time like "Burn", "Echoplex", "Frail/Wretched" ... but hearing "The Becoming", "The Way Out is Through", "The Fragile" and "Piggy (Nothing Can Stop Me Now)" and "Physical" for the first time more than made up for it.

if your attempts to find rarely played songs on that setlist are taking you to new songs, then I rest my case.

On an unrelated note, before I'm afraid of Americans, he was talking about when he was in D.C. for a screening in the White House of Before the Flood to such an extent that I really thought we were going to get the premiere of A Minute to Breathe (or something else from that soundtrack but that song is the most likely). I wonder if I was the only one thinking that?

for those wondering he ended up talking about how he thought it would lead to change but that didn't happen and this was a song he worked on with a friend that is suddenly relevant now (or something to that effect - he then intro'ed the great destroyer as "another song from our end of the World Series")

Before the first show, someone posted a list of set times. I saved the graphic and adding a half hour to everything (for a 7:30 start vs 7:00 start) it was accurate for yesterday so I'm assuming it's consistent, so 2 hours and 10 minutes after the scheduled start of opening act. 9:40ish yesterday since it was a 7:30 show

No since last year they don’t have as much green light for it onstage as before. Even 94/95 footage of it has the entire stage coated in green. I remember talking right after Panorama with people about how we all agreed it sounded the best it ever has but the toned down green in favor of more gray/white light felt off and it’s stayed that way ever since at every show from 2017 until now. Like I said it’s a dumb complaint.

I'm feeling that the surprises for us nerds are probably mostly past by now and they've settled into a certain groove with the setlists, which are still pretty damn unique compared to tours past and still with a hell of a lot of variety.

I would say that the next four shows are gonna be unique setlist wise because Brooklyn/NYC isn't really a large gap of locations at all. It's just like... right across the street. I'm positive alot of people going to Radio City will be going to Brooklyn and I'm sure Trent knows that.

Ehhh... there’s only so many songs they can possibly rehearse and play. I agree with some of the above posts that us dorks that follow this should t expect many more surprises. What’s left- Sin? Maybe The Idea Of You?

Regardless, if you’re a set list junkie this has been a great tour. Maybe the 500 LA shows will feature something like JLYI since there’s an opportunity to get different musicians on stage.

Anybody catch what Trent-ola said at RCMH in his like third little speech – not the joke about pretending to care about Radio City Music Hall, or the Bowie cover lead-in, but the third one ... he said something about the shows or something about the shows "feeling right" or how it had a lot to do with "the audience." I could not make it out and I'm not even sure if what I thought he said was even close.

Great show. Since this is only my second NIN show despite decades of listening, I had a mostly all new setlist for me and it was a really great time. I was super excited to hear "Mr. Self Destruct," and since he didn't play "Hurt" last year at Webster Hall, it was a really emotional experience by the end of it. "All the Love in the World" was also a huge treat, and I was really happy to hear all the Bad Witch vocal tracks and the two other trilogy songs played. I think they sound great. Oh – and yes – The Perfect Drug. It's hard to process that that's actually being played regularly now. 1997 forever ...

Tonight was a relatively safe setlist. Had some more rare nuggets in there, but still alot of well known material for the casual fan. My mom, wife, brother & friends were not disappointed at all. They got plenty that they knew. And if there was gonna be a show during this NYC run where they played it more safe, the Saturday night show in tourist hell Midtown at Radio City would be the one. So now that we've done that tonight...let's get weird the next 3 nights.

I could not make it out and I'm not even sure if what I thought he said was even close.

Was really hard to make out alot of what Trent was saying. He was talking very low & bassy and was suuuuper close to the mic during his little speeches.

Tonight was a relatively safe setlist. Had some more rare nuggets in there, but still alot of well known material for the casual fan. My mom, wife, brother & friends were not disappointed at all. They got plenty that they knew. And if there was gonna be a show during this NYC run where they played it more safe, the Saturday night show in tourist hell Midtown at Radio City would be the one. So now that we've done that tonight...let's get weird the next 3 nights.

Yup. I think the Tuesday Brooklyn show is going to be the weirdest of the bunch in terms of setlist, but tomorrow will be much more exotic than tonight. I'm definitely someone who would've enjoyed a bit more variation in material (seeing A Warm Place the other night made me wild..) but this was the only night that was really feasible given that I can't take off work and had to come up from Philly. Nevertheless, they sounded amazing and I could hear Mr. Self Destruct and March of the Pigs at every show (by every band) for the rest of my life and I'd be okay with it. Perfect Drug was never my favorite song, but seeing it live was a little surreal after having expected to see it show up on setlists every tour 1999. This show also reaffirmed my love of the Bad Witch material, which fits in respectably with the earlier stuff. Speaking of which, no Fragile material tonight. Wonder if that's significant moving forward. I sort of thought they might play The Fragile as an homage to the '99 VMAs, so..it sort of stuck out.

Very glad I went.

There's just no way they aren't considering playing TDS in full again at least once. They already learned 10/14 songs, and with gaps between the shows as big as this year, adding another 4 is hardly a problem.

Fucking Happiness in Slavery, The Becoming, Even Deeper AND La Mer? AND you pull out the Bowie cover you said you were retiring? AND The Fragile mini-set? Jeez.

That's about the time the Red Rocks and Phoenix shows ended as well. Second night at RR was done at like 9:45 but that's because of imminent weather so they moved the whole show up an hour (cut Tobacco entirely). Shows have been like 1:35-1:50 in length.

Yeah he also mentioned that it was because they were in New York, so that was part of the reason. It sounded so great, people were quiet near me on the 2nd Mezz and you could hear all the little extra synth bloops. I closed my eyes and pretended Bowie was there... :(

Im pretty sure it was during the Minneapolis LITS show, him saying how “Here’s the song that started the rock rap genre”, or something to that effect.

Would be a better live song if they stayed more true to the original production, ala The Great Destroyer. Hammer the crowd with a bunch of subwoofers.

Of all the PHM songs played live over the years, that one has probably been played more than any other song not named "Terrible Lie" or "HLAH" so I doubt he has an aversion to it.....Especially compared to other PHM songs that have been abandoned for over 2 decades (Ringfinger/Thats What I Get/Kinda, I Want To/The Only Time).....I am more curious as to why "Sin" has been forgotten about, especially considering it was played played at 90% of the shows from 89-07 and then just abandoned (save for a few one-off appearances from 08-09)...And how many times are we going to do "The Only Time' breakdown in "Closer' without playing the full fucking song

Trent has made it clear as recently as this summer that he approaches festival setlists differently from headlining shows and the Europe fest sets vs. Vegas and Cold and Black dates this year prove that. Saul protested performing by only doing poetry so I think he would have said no anyway, rehearsing Supernaut with Al would have probably been impossible and they still debuted Background World at that show and did the Somewhat Damaged/TDTWWA encore opener combo.

We’re almost guaranteed to see The Perfect Drug, Happiness in Slavery and potentially Last, Now I’m Nothing, Mr. Self Destruct, The Becoming, Suck, Dead Souls, Physical, Home, La Mer and All the Love in the World between the 3 shows there. I’ve always been one to complain about setlists but come on. They’re playing more songs this tour than they did on NINJA. At this point, any other big surprises are nothing but extra. I’d love to see Down in It and Sin come back and for Ruiner and some more Fragile and With Teeth deep cuts and I’ve still never seen In This Twilight but I’m not going to be griping at all about the sets next week, all of these shows are fucking stacked. I’m even considering selling off some of my collection to see more dates. This is a special run with the craziest sets since 2009.

And seriously, I can’t believe how quickly people are glossing over TPD being a staple. That alone makes this worth every penny to me.

And seriously, I can’t believe how quickly people are glossing over TPD being a staple. That alone makes this worth every penny to me.

I have absolutely every intention of being close enough to stage to nearly be squished to death when TPD inevitably (hopefully?) pops up in Chicago. It’s weird to be able to say that.

The most exciting thing for me between those three nights, it’s safe to assume we’ll have 60-65 songs, with minimal overlap in songs played night to night judging from how the other multi-night stops have gone. That leaves room for so many other songs to get in, but if I’m being honest - even if it’s just aaall the songs they’ve played on this tour up to this point, I’d be beyond pleased with that. Seeing two shows wasn’t enough, and I have a feeling that even after Chicago there will still probably be a couple of songs I never got to catch between FIVE shows. *shrug*

That final pair of LA dates conveniently timed in mid-December are still looming in the background, though. Waiting for me to bounce back financially from these shows and be ready to blow my money again...

Is this your plan, Reznor? Make me spend my money and travel and meet people and have great experiences?? Because..it’s working!

Down In It is probably my most listened to NIN song. It manages to sound like a hip-hop jam from 1989 while also not sounding like it at the same time and I love that shit. I love the live version even more. It sounds aggressive like NIN but it maintains it's weird 90's vibe much like Sin did and I think it's why those songs stood the test of time for live shows.

I really think that something like That's What I Get or Ringfinger would be fantastic today.

The Big Come Down
I Do Not Want This
Terrible Lie
Came Back Haunted
Find My Way
Something I Can Never Have
I Can't Give Everything Away (trent said they were going to stop playing it when they last played it, so this one seems unlikely)

I have to complain about one thing, if youre in GA have some respect towards your fellow fans.

this one dude was forcing himself into me the whole, i could feel his fat sweaty stomach, I gave him the doubt because crowds can be tight. Then NIN comes on and hes bumping and hitting me. I already have no where else to fo so i politely tell him, I know you’re enjoying the show but can you just move back a little, youre hitting me”

fuck face goes I don’t care I am not moving anywhere. I lost my cool and he goes its a concert you want to start trouble. I paid a lot of money for this shit and came early to stand close and I am not in the mood to punch this asshole in the face. Thankfully another fan came in and told him to fuck off and then he calmed down.

who the fuck does that? It really wrecked my mood in the beginning. Thankfully some polite people next to me but they were getting pushed around by dumbasses. Like form a mosh in the middle or the back. Alot of people here came early to enjoy the show and watch the musicians.

like how shitty can you be?

i am sorry I had to vent. I expected class from people dishing a lot of money, instead assholes with money showed up. The worst kind.


The band was great. Love those guys

I did not know that I wanted I Do Not Want This as much as I did until I had it. Hope that makes sense. The whole setlist was cool, unexpected, very in-your-face. Was happy to take my bro and his gf.

We're living at a point when basically everything sucks but at least it's an amazing goddamned time to be a NIN fan.

That would make me so happy but it seems unlikely - the only time they've performed it yet is when it made its live debut, at the Webster Hall show the day after Panorama in 2017, and the fact it hasn't appeared since then makes me think Trent was unsatisfied with how it transitioned to a live performance. Hopefully they try it again! If they don't, they could always try The Idea Of You...

After 3 nights in NYC they still have 16 songs to pull from based on those previously played on this tour. That is pretty impressive.

Nope. Webster Hall last year is still the only time that one's been played.

Non-Entity is definitely one of my favorite NIN songs. Crazy that the studio version almost never saw the light of day.

New user, longtime lurker. Psyched for Kings Theater tonight. Never been there, but looks gorgeous.

Does anyone know how strict they are about the "no backpacks" rule? I will be going straight from work, so was planning to bring that bag with me, Is that verboten?

Obligatory: Hoping they play Just Like You Imagined, but not counting on it.

If Pinion is pre-recorded it might have just been left out of the reported setlist. It's even the bonus tracks, so I don't see why Pinion would be left out.

The band was great. Love those guys

Were you near the front of GA towards the left if you're facing the stage? That's where me and my friend were and we had some jackass starting trouble behind us. Eventually I had to really get in this guy's face to get him to back the F off. Both me and my friend are pretty big guys so, despite the guy being a complete moron, I think his survival instincts kicked in and he finally backed off. It was weird that the mosh pit kept forming right behind us near the front. Got annoying at times, but I expect some physicality in GA at a NIN show. To be honest, I did appreciate the mosh pit's location when "Wish" came on :)

Beautiful venue and a GREAT show. I enjoyed this much more than the show at the Prudential Center a few years ago with those R&B back-up singers or whatever that was (those lighting and effects were amazing though). THIS was NIN. I loved it. The only thing I wish they would've played was "Sin" but I was very happy with what they did play.

Yes indeed. I did 3/4 shows in NYC and what with Broken it couldn’t help but be high energy and old school NIN. Each show was very different and yet wonderful. I was in the second row just behind GA so particularly felt the energy but the whole theater was moving. TR was quite jolly. TR kept threatening to return soon. And said things like “We should do this more often.” Said he had to think of something sad to bring down his good mood to sing Even Deeper.

I was between Robin, That tall ass black security guard with dreads. I think more right but i saw the mosh happening om the left that night, it ws absurd.



BUT TONIGHTS CROWD WAS THE ABSOLUTE WORST. I came early as usual and got a great spot and met some awesome cool NIN fans and we all talked about the band and the annoying mosh pitters. I thought we were all safe, but all these fucking morons came out of nowhere and moshed. Fat bitches, dude bros, old fat dudes (like biggest loser fat) are crushing me against a rail (i was 3 rows behind the rail already)

i became the man from the broken music video through out that entire album. I didn’t even get to enjoy Gave Up, its one of my fav NIN somgs and I am being pummeled. Some guy was laughing and moshing and telling people its pit, i said dude keep the mosh on your side and he gives me a finger and I had to yell at him. Someone had to calm me down. Really pissed because that was an awesome setlist

Then I went to the back to relax and enjoy. Could barely see but still its NIN. Theres some tall bearded dude walking in front of people bumping into them and hes being pushed away by everyone like a fly. He was so out of it and someone hgave him beer and weed =|

and dude bros yelling HEAD LIKE A HOLE, no shit sherlock he ends the main set with that somg EVERY FUCKING TIME FOR THE PAST 20 years. You stupid fuck.

and some bitch yells Closer during Hurt, WHY THE FUCK WOULD HE END WITH CLOSER? This isn’t a jam show.

I had more fun at Prudential (though that crowd was trashier than NYC) moshing during a light show? Come on now. But i got a good view and had an absolute blast and wasn’t disturbed.

i feel a little irritated that I and many others dropped tons of money for a band that means a lot to us, and a bunch of drunk assholes who probably haven’t listened to an album besides Downward Spiral being so disrespectful.

i like to be in the front because i love seeing the musicianship, and I couldn’t get that today.

thats just my rant.

one of the worst crowds I have been in.


BTW i loved those back up singers, they added such a gravitas to the songs and brought in a whole new side of NIN.

Hopefully NIN does an orchestra tour next like Reznor hinted years ago.

And tonight was an awesome set list too, sort of bittersweet.
