    Pointless live speculation

    On the Radio 1 interview, Trent reiterated a maybe of HTDA live in 2012.

    So, on a medical level, what organs can I sell and still live?

    I think you can get away with living with 3/4 or 2/3 of your liver,a kidney of course or maybe you can donate some bone marrow.

    All kidding aside, hopefully they tour outside of LA, I imagine they'll hit up NY, Chicago and the like. Which means I might consider fasting in order to get funds to go. Though I'm curious who they would recruit/need to bring this stuff to life.
    There's 3 already, so maybe just a drummer or something?

    Yeah, come to Europe. I mean, there are a bunch of awesome places your wife has to see. Hey, you know what TR, come crash on my couch and I'll show you some cool venues around, feel free to pick your favorite.

    I think this will be like the live versions of Me, I'm not, Vessel, etc. So maybe Trent/Atticus on synths and Mariqueen singing and doing additional synths. Hopefully better than that bitch from Crystal Castles.

    Well, she can't sing and sounds like a pig? But don't get me wrong, they are good live.

    I think Coachella and similar fests are probably likely, gets them big exposure, but small gigs always are better than big imo, so I hope they play some intimate shows to be bootlegged

    The idea of HTDA touring in 2012, when Trent ALSO said he's going to spend most of 2012 writing new NIN, makes me think two things. Either a) some of the new NIN album is going to be written YZ style, on the road, and just mixing after the tour (or more likely b) a very short, small, not too many venue tour, to be able to test the waters (in regards to how well it will work, as well as the demand for HTDA vs what he's used to for NIN) as well as have time to put into the new NIN album, since he said it's not going to be a quick one again, rather he's going to take his time and put a lot into it like he used to.
    That was probably the longest sentence I've ever written.

    they def. will not be doing extensive touring. either a short club run, festival appearances, or both. theyre trying to raise a baby, now's not the time to tour the country for 2 months at a time. and its not like they need the $ (well, maybe Atticus does haha).

    Possibly this. Especially if the album comes out in the summer.

    Honestly I'd love to see Lohner come back - although hell, we don't know what the LP sounds like, it could be performed entirely on bagpipes and banjos!

    No Europe for sure.
    For me: a trip to the US should be the next step.
    Forget 'a big tour': they have a child.

    I really hope they announce all the dates at once tbh. If I'm going to consider going over the pond to see them, I want to be sure that there's no chance of them coming here first.

    don't get me wrong, I'd love it; but based only on the EP (which is all we really have right now), I have no idea how on earth a show could actually be interesting. Its not like there's strong lead vocals (that's not a knock on the singing, its just its pretty background by design), the music is pretty loop and sample based (so there's not much to actually 'play'), and its not especially danceable. maybe the LP will come out and knock all this straight out the window, but as for now, a live show seems sort of ... ehh...then again, this is probably exactly what they said after PHM, so I'll keep an open mind

    haha...I started reading your post and thought exactly the same thing - I think when it comes to 'live' HTDA it won't be lame... at least I hope so... the guy has to have a swing and a miss at least once right?

    If it comes down to it...and it's small tour, which could very well be...if they do dates in Boston, Chicago, or even L.A...I am there. I know the reality of any Florida stops are next to none. Ha!

    I'm sure he swings and misses from time to time. Case in point? Tapeworm. The thing is we don't generally see the misses. There's a reason Tapeworm never saw the light of day, he's made that clear. If HTDA does live dates, rest assured that he's already spent the time working out that it's viable.

    Guuuyyyss...there's a better chance for South FL then Central FL. :-D But first to see if they even do anything outside of a few El Lay shows when getting started.

    (Some fellow fan told me once that TR liked Orlando while we were in line waiting for 'With Teeth' midnight release - thus the multiple shows back in '95 during the Club Tour which was hard for me to believe as I only heard about/attended one.)

    I think touring for HTDA would be easier now with a baby than when the child has to attend school in a few years.
    Babies and toddlers are very portable

    Taking advantage of the title of this thread - Pointless live speculation!

    okay, here goes... I think it would be pretty funny if Saul Williams crashed a HTDA show and started singing Survivalism - Trent would then become enraged and single handedly throw him off stage.
