Nobody really breaks up anymore, do they? Well, if you've listened to Trent Reznor the past few months, he sure sounds confident in his ability to take Nine Inch Nails off the road for good. His band's currently wrapping up a tour in Europe (fresh from a tour with Jane's Addiction in the States this summer), but will make a final stand in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles in late August.
From the Nine Inch Nails website:
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.
Reznor, of course, is making this last run of shows ambitious by playing several venues. In New York, Nine Inch Nails will perform at the Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall, and Terminal 5. In LA, they'll be at the Wiltern, the Fonda, the Palladium, and the Echoplex. Chicago gets just one building, the Aragon Ballroom.
Tickets and other details haven't been announced yet.
