- SPIN Rating: of 10
Who: Digital music consumption frontrunner Trent Reznor's industrial and hard rock project Nine Inch Nails.
What: A lengthy summer tour across North America in support of NIN's latest album, the instrumental set Ghosts I-IV. The 24-date outing will kick off July 25 at Canada's newest event, Pemberton Music Festival, and conclude Sept. 6 in Inglewood, CA.
Should I go:Yes. Though Trent Reznor is no stranger to the touring circuit, NIN's live show is always an action packed experience with dark, mechanical stage theatrics, and Reznor's band's album-like sonic precision.
