Trent Reznor posted a message on nin.com today revealing Nine Inch Nails’s plans for their final shows which will hit New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Dissatisfied with playing during the day and with a smaller set length while touring with Jane’s Addiction, Trent vows to play longer more intimate shows hitting NYC venues like Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5, the Aragon Ballroom (Chicago) and the Wiltern, the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theatre, the Palladium and the Echoplex in Los Angeles. Trent also mentioned that the band is in talks to play V-Fest in Toronto. One can only hope that Nine Inch Nails won’t end here. I’m sure that Trent will keep creating music even if it’s under a different name. Plus, no one really fully quits/retires. And would a NIN reunion show be anything to celebrate? I mean, NIN has always been just Trent and some young dudes who rock hard in black. Anyways, check out Trent’s message from the site below:
Getting right to the point, we’re going to play a handful of shows in NYC, Chicago and LA starting August 22nd. They will be informal affairs in medium to small venues with longer set-lists, possible special guests, cool openers and other surprises. Upon reflection, the NIN/JA tour felt like we had to rush through sets due to a limited allotted set length and many shows were in daylight – it just didn’t feel right to end NIN that way. An offer to headline V-Fest in Toronto (being announced soon) set the idea in motion to play some FUN shows to end this up with. If we can get it together we’ll film these shows, too.
In NYC we’ll be playing Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5. In Chicago, the Aragon Ballroom. In LA we’ll be at The Wiltern, The Henry Fonda, The Palladium and The Echoplex. These should be cool, unusual and unique shows and I hope you come out – this is it.
So far, The Horrors will be joining us for some shows in NYC, Mew will be with us at other shows in NYC, Chicago and LA, and perhaps more.
Details and ticket info will be announced shortly, so check back.
