It was a night for the Industrial ages when Nine Inch Nails crippled their hometown of Cleveland, OH on Saturday night, September 24, with an incredible set of new and old favorites, and quite a few former members.
Following short sets heavy with nostalgia from Industrial music pioneers Nitzer Ebb and Ministry (which featured a Trent-less side project cover of "Supernaut"), Trent Reznor’s current band consisting of Alessandro Cortini, Atticus Ross, Ilan Rubin, and longtime touring guitarist Robin Finck took the stage for an incredible 23 song set spanning the band's 34 year career.
Beloved alumni from past NIN projects Charlie Clouser, Danny Lohner, and Chris Vrenna (Tweaker) were also on hand for the final portion of the performance, as was former touring guitarist Richard Patrick, who would later go on to form the popular Industrial rock band Filter following his departure in 1993. The gathered alums even performed Filter's hit, "Hey Man Nice Shot" together for the crowd. Just let that sink in...
Luckily for those who couldn't attend, Nails have provided a ton of photos on social media which you can see above, as well as HERE and HERE. Plus, the alumni performance of "Wish" has been uploaded to YouTube for your viewing pleasure.
Check out more from each band, and their incredible setists below.
