    That was a much needed NIN show. Very happy.

    So this tour is basically Cold Black and Infinite part II, which is all I want! Got to see AATCHB for the second time (even though the acoustic guitar malfunctioned during the melodic break)!
    The band seemed genuinely happy to be back together on stage. Trent really got into Piggy, screaming and getting screamed back at from the crowd.
    Also, side note, we’re getting older folks, tamest pit I’ve ever seen for NIN.

    The energy of the band & how happy they were to be back could truly be felt. The first 4-5 songs you could practically see it in Trent’s face & expressions. Hard to explain, but husband agreed it was there. He seemed to genuinely be happy for performing again, and commented as much several times through the night.

    EDIETS and Fashion were fun surprises! I love their rendition of Fashion.

    & yes, the crowds are definitely getting older, but you could feel the love there tonight. At least in my opinion. There was a fairly rowdy group up front and center, just to the left of us. Even a bit of moshing & crowd surfers.

    Truly cathartic. Feel grateful & happy that we are finally at a place to have this again. A great night all around & I talked to a bunch of great people. Seemed like a crowd of real diehards. Have to get up again in a few hours for flight to Atlanta/Shaky Knees. Good night fellow piggies.

    There was about 10 of us moshing. Also, sorry i missed you - though it's been a while, so I probably wouldn't have recognized you

    Words can’t express how fun that was last night.

    One of the best setlists ever, in my opinion.

    Haven’t posted in a long time but came here to share my experience, copied from a comment I made on a Reddit post:

    Great show. It was nice to finally hear EDIETS and AATCHB. They sounded great and it was lovely. I hated the crowd around me, wish I could have moved around. Guys right next to me shouting/talking to each other the whole time. I tried to tune it out as well as I could and still enjoyed the show. Also one of them bought too many beers and gave me one for free so I didn’t want to tell ‘em to shut up.. oh well. I liked Boy Harsher too! See ya in Philly.


    edit: forgot to mention I should have waited on the ticket too, I bought a $300 Official platinum ticket from Ticketbastard on the first day on sale. Dude right in front of me paid $60 plus fees on resale two days before the show. Maybe I’ll learn my lesson some day.. maybe..

    One thing I remembered later on about last night:

    Someone behind us up in the pit tried to start the slow clap during Hurt, and I distinctly heard someone else over closer to us say to them “NOPE, stop that right now”. And they quit. Made me snicker.

    I can’t adequately describe how pleasing it was to see old friends & familiar faces in a REAL WORLD queue for NIN. That really set the tone for the day. In sharp contrast to the corporate entity, the Live Nation local venue folks were a great bunch of helpful people.

    Boy Harsher were a very cool opener. I was getting a Superstition-era Siouxie & The Banshees vibe and couldn’t help but bop around during their set. I want to pick up an album to see how they sound in the studio versus live.

    As far as NIN portion of the evening… such a fucking delight to be in the moment, sharing the rail with good people, and experiencing a performance packed with treats for the die-hard fans. AATCHB was an obvious highlight since I missed it during CBI, but Fashion was a sweet surprise (I do hope MQ gets on stage next time instead of her backing track).

    Yeah, I am still mad at TM for fucking me with their Official Platinum but I have no regrets.

    My small contribution to the historical record: I was on the rail, in front of Ilan. During "Hurt," as soon as Trent sang "I am still right here," someone shouted "YEAH YOU ARE!!" (a la the Panorama show in 2017). Trent seemed unphased, but Ilan and Alessandro were cracking UP. Like, Alessandro couldn't stop laughing.

    I would echo everyone's comments about how happy and grateful the whole band seemed to be up on the stage that night.

    Great show. So glad to see them after four years. They were tight and Trent actually seemed happy. Wrecked my old neck banging it. ��
