Nine Inch Nails Extend Tour

Who? Alt-rock and industrial mainstay Nine Inch Nails, the brainchild of studio wizard and live force Trent Reznor. A steady presence in headlines this year, Reznor offered the instrumental album Ghosts I-IV through NIN’s website using a pay-what-you-want strategy, and also dropped the rock-oriented set The Slip for no charge.

What? A 31-date jaunt appended to Nine Inch Nails’ massive Lights in the Sky tour, set to continue Oct. 23 in San Antonio, TX, after a spattering of dates in South America. Following a stop at New Orleans’ Voodoo Festival Oct. 25, Trent and co. will move along the East Coast, hit Canada, move through the Midwest, and conclude their run with a string of West Coast shows.

Should I Go? Yes. Nine Inch Nails’ sets have always incorporated breathtaking set design and the Lights in the Sky show is their most elaborate visual spectacle yet. Furthermore, Reznor has assembled an ace backing band, featuring longtime collaborator Alessandro Cortini, respected session drummer Josh Freese, and onetime Guns N’ Roses guitarist Robin Finck. Overall, Nine Inch Nails put on a show that’s not to be missed.
