Nine Inch Nails ‘Wave Goodbye’ To New York City

The TV Guide

And so … my NYC NINventure has come to a close. Last night, Nine Inch Nails played their second show at Terminal 5, which was their last in NYC for the foreseeable future. It’s hard to believe that all 4 NYC shows are over already but the band are already on their way to Chicago, IL for the 2 shows there before they make their way to Canada for their final festival performance there. Last night’s Terminal 5 show clocked in at about 2 hours and 45 minutes and provided a raucously fun send off for the NYC fans:


Peter Murphy was, once again, a special guest performer for last night’s show but he managed to out do his surprise appearance at Tuesday night’s show. After the jump, check out a few of my photos, check out the full 32 song setlist and watch video of NIN performing the amazing song Something I Can Never Have

Here are a couple of photos that I did not take but they were posted on the official NIN forum and are very cool and should be shared:


Trent was playing this recorder while Peter Murphy was singing A Strange Kind of Love … just too freakin’ cool. I managed to get video of the band performing Something I Can Never Have:


All in all this show, much like the 3 previous shows, was special in its own right. NIN really played thru a great catalog of songs over the 4 concerts, which I’m sure the fans greatly appreciated. I can’t believe the NYC shows are finished … but at least I have the 4 LA shows to look forward to. I also have my upcoming interview with Trent Reznor to plan for … good times ahead. Those of you attending the Chicago shows, have an amazing time for me … and let us all know how great they are!

And so, NYC, I have to bid thee farewell for now … I’m hopping a plane in a few hours and then it’s back to LA LA Land. See y’all on the West Side tomorrow!!

    Hey Trent – thanks for sharing your show experiences with us! I’m going to the Chicago show on Friday, any suggestions on how early I should arrive to get good merchandise and a close spot near the stage? Thanks!
