Wave Goodbye

As you all know, Trent Reznor has decided to stop touring (for a minimum of a few years) and announced a series of smaller shows as a proper goodbye for fans. Four in New York, two in Chicago, and four in LA. According to the man himself, "These should be cool, unusual and unique shows and I hope you come out - this is it".

08.22.09 New York, NY Bowery Ballroom (Opener: The Horrors)
08.23.09 New York, NY Webster Hall (Opener: The Horrors)
08.25.09 New York, NY Terminal 5 (Opener: The Horrors)
08.26.09 New York, NY Terminal 5 (Opener: Mew)
08.28.09 Chicago, IL Aragon Ballroom (Opener: Mew)
08.29.09 Chicago, IL Aragon Ballroom (Opener: Mew)
09.02.09 Los Angeles, CA Hollywood Palladium (Opener: Mew)
09.03.09 Los Angeles, CA Henry Fonda Theater (Opener: Mew)
09.05.09 Los Angeles, CA Wiltern Theatre (Opener: HEALTH)
09.06.09 Los Angeles, CA Echoplex (Opener: HEALTH)

All of the shows are sold out. Some goons have extra tickets so it doesn't hurt to ask if you can buy one.

So, what now?

Nobody knows. According to various interviews, Trent plans to spend his time fucking his wife, eating Cheetos while floating around in his pool and randomly updating NIN.com with various cryptic symbols that will ultimately mean nothing he will be spending part of his hiatus working on a new album (really taking his time), putting together a deluxe version of The Fragile (which we should hopefully see some time in Spring 2010) and focusing on various other side projects he has always wanted to do (Year Zero TV show, programming, getting a life)

And All That Ever Will Be

Let's reminisce.

Nine Inch Nails' offical YouTube & Vimeo accounts has alot of live video Rob recorded from the current tour and Performance 2007 along with most of the NIN music videos: http://www.vimeo.com/ninofficial http://www.youtube.c...ser/ninofficial

If you haven't already, go download the NIN|JA 2009 EP which features studio recordings of Non-Entity and Not So Pretty Now (http://www.ninja2009.com/) and The Slip (http://theslip.nin.com/) a full length album for free

I am planning to upload various essential audio bootlegs and other fun, rare stuff whenever I feel like it.

Victoria, BC (12-05-08) - Soundboard audio ripped from the HD video torrented on NIN.com. Chopped into pieces by me, encoded in V0 MP3 http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4PJXR4IH

Open Source Resistance (04-18-07) - Ripped audio from Open Source Resistance. First time Last/We're In This Together/The Beginning Of The End were played in America. I added a spoken word track from the meeting at the beginning and Me, I'm Not from NIN's YouTube (please excuse the horrible attempt at creating something out of voices at the beginning of Me, I'm Not) http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HYNMDCBY

*more coming soon*

Trent said he was going to take a year or two off to pursue other projects he's always wanted to do (new album/Year Zero TV show/computer programs)

http://pinkisthenewb...h-trent-reznor/

And that he is only going to tour when he feels like it from now on.

- edit I'm most likely going to the West Palm Beach show :)

Awesome, thanks for the link.

I Thought it was going to be a long ass hiatus and won't see them back until turning gray. One less worry I guess.

Remember, this is the new band. No Alessandro (keyboard dutes are spread over the group) and no crazy light show (or at least as crazy as Lights In The Sky was).

Cool thing about that is that we should get some different setlists, more rarites and they are only playing what they want to.

Alessandro and Josh Freese left. Josh was replaced by Ilan Rubin.

Yeah, I know Freese left in the middle of the tour basically. I Think my mind would be blown if Danny Lohner were to come back, but I know that day will never come.

I've lost interest in NIN, they are too commercialized and have gone soft, it seems. Their concerts are nowhere near as exciting where they used to be. And in some ways they seem to be just another product of the machine now.

If you are a NIN fan (or former NIN fan) you might want to check out Combichrist. Gives energetic & driving concerts with some nice hard electro industrial music. NIN might have went this way if they kept going in the direction of TDS, instead of the mediocre recent efforts.

Funny thing is my handle was inspired by the NIN song "Ruiner." Oh well. Too bad the "halo" collection that I spent so much money on is virtually worthless these days...

:roll:

Yeah they aren't as wild as they were during the Self Destruct or Fragility tour but you have to also think that Trent isn't a young drug addict anymore. He's grown up, got clean and the band has evolved. They still put on a fantastic live show with alot of energy even if you don't like the direction they moved into (rock/electronic)

I'll take Year Zero, Ghosts, The Slip and even With Teeth over Trent regurgitating The Downward Spiral a million times, any day.

If you have any of the later Fragile halos, I think you would be suprised how much they can go for (WITT 1-3 = $70+)

Lights in the Sky was easily one of the best concerts I've ever seen live. If I can say that with no hesitation then Trent is obviously doing something right.

Yeah...boy did NIN sell out when Trent gave away The Slip for free and in lossless as well. Totally went commercial then.

I think Ghosts by far is his best effort since TDS/Fragile/AATCHB. I have the Blu-ray boxset of Ghosts, it is nice. All the other albums starting from With Teeth though are varying shades of mediocrity IMO. Just not up to the pre-WT NIN standards. Instead of 90-100% of the songs being quality, that number for me at least seems to have dropped to 20-30%.

If you have any of the later Fragile halos, I think you would be suprised how much they can go for (WITT 1-3 = $70+)


No shit? I literally have virtually every Halo through year zero remixed. The only ones I sold since they were worth a lot of money were the Happiness in Slavery VIP Promo vinyl and The Perfect Drug 3-vinyl set. Let me know the values of this stuff and I'll ebay it! I need money! :D

But yeah, I know what you mean about him "evolving." I just feel for my tastes he evolved in the wrong direction. So I've pretty much moved on since I gave his new stuff a chance with 3 albums and I am pretty much disappointed in all of them. I like the remixes of the WT songs by other bands (on the import singles) more than the original songs.


Combichrist seems to be an adequate replacement for me. Great driving electro-industrial and very intense concerts. Listen to songs like "All Pain is Gone" and "F**k That Shit" and you can really see the potential for greatness with that band.

I'm really considering buying two tickets to the West Palm or Tampa show for a friend and myself.
