I'm not sure I can muster the energy to find my cane and pull myself out of this rocking chair to go see them anymore.

I just went to a couple NIN concerts this past weekend.  Trent still puts a lot of care and love into making an amazing show, and seems to still have a ton of energy, despite being 50+.  He's been doing setlists that are a great mix from his entire catalog, so don't stress too much if you didn't like the new album.  If you're on the edge because of not liking Hesitation Marks, I recommend going for it.

I think a lot of 90s bands are starting to realize that they are getting into Rolling Stones territory, i.e. realizing that people are paying the ticket prices to hear the hits, not half of the new album.

Not surprised at Trent's energy, though. You have to remember, he might be 20 years older, but 20 years ago, he was a junkie.

A sober 48-year old can keep up with a perpetually wasted 28-year old.

That's kinda the thing....I don't really want to hear the "Greatest Hits" sandwiched in between a bunch of songs I don't know.  And in great part I don't want just to go hear the "Greatest Hits" because that was what I was hearing way back when I saw them the first time.

I liked the idea of doing an album from beginning to end in the live setting with the original members.  With bands that have estranged members it gives the fans a good reason to come out and see that lineup. In NIN's case I'd show for TDS played from beginning to end because it's a work that I remember primarily in that context.  I didn't just listen to one song....I put mileage on that whole CD.

And honestly, I'm open to reinterpretation of songs and artists having fun with it.  To me when artists are challenged and they get the chance to rise to the occasion that's when something amazing can happen.

With NIN though there's enough out there to work with.  Want to blow minds?  Toss "Maybe Just Once" in there and see what happens.  Use the alternate samples for "Sanctified."  Fly in Jourgenssen from rehab and do "Supernaut" as a gesture of support; you think he wouldn't jump at that?  Tour with Skinny Puppy as an opener.  Do something to shake things up.

the rage from the perpetually stuck-in-the-90s Industrial scene would be glorious.

I want to go, they were done with being big acts by the time I was old enough to appreciate.

They rejoined a couple years back, did some of the headliners shows, put out a new album which isn't have bad and toured to support it also.

The new NIN kicks ass, sad that it's that underrated. Sounds like Reznor playing Depeche Mode. Only heard a little bit of How To Destroy Angels (cudos on his nod to Coil), but pretty good so far.
Soundgarden, not so much Cornell's solo material blows, and haven't really liked them since 'Superunknown'. At least Reznor moved on, and kept industrial at least a little bit alive. I'd prefer NIN touring with Punto Omega, Psyborg Corp, or Centhron, IMHO.

Having gone to a few NIN concerts recently, I think you'd be happily surprised if you attend one.

Done in two.

Count me among those that are too old to want to go see them live crowd.  How to Destroy Angels sounds more like NIN then NIN does these days any ways.  Who cares about Stone Sound Temple Garden Pilots.
 
2014-03-17 10:34:12 AM  
Arena tour? No thanks.
 
2014-03-17 10:43:47 AM  
I'm definitely going - NIN is the real hook here - but living in Tallahassee presents me with options/problems.
4 hours to Atlanta (no friends to crash with)
4 hours to Tampa (best strip clubs, still no friends to crash with)
6 hours to West Palm (free lodging available)

Seen Soundgarden in 94 along with Tad, and L7. They played Head down, and Limo wreck of that record, and Searching with my good eye closed, so I was happy.
 
2014-03-17 11:37:03 AM  
Forgot to add; no Matt Cameron, no Ooba Tooba.

Tool are currently playing shows. Waiting for announcements in my area. I have seen them a dozen times since '94, and wiil continue to see them as long as they play concerts.

What's equally sad is that half the crowd will be under 25. So I'll be sitting there before the concert, telling anyone who will listen how I saw NIN on their first national tour in a 400 person capacity nightclub.

I have quite a few of them old stories. First time I seen Tool was on top of a parking garage.

Filter's been one of my favorite bands since I was a teen and I've had the opportunity when I shot concerts to hang out with Richard Patrick for a while here and there over the years. Dude's incredible. The last 2 Filter albums are legit. It's weird because in most people's eyes Filter was/is a One Hit/2 Hit Wonder. They tour constantly now, definitely recommend seeing a show if you get the chance.


As for NIN, also growing into that genre as a teen I didn't really like Hesitation Marks, etc. But HOLY SHIAT the show was phenomenal. Pino Palladino on bass, black female backup vocalists, very well crafted songs, stage lighting and video that's at the top of it's game...you cannot beat it.

This is pretty cool (mostly the NIN part); but I'm not excited about the local venue (Shoreline Amphitheater). Those old venues were great back when a rock show delivered energy through 15,000 people; but that magic is GONE. I'm still kicking myself for missing NIN in Golden Gate park last year, which is just as big but much more ambient.

I don't understand how they (he) aren't a staple of rock.  I'm proud when the "first purchased album" conversation comes up because I get to say Title of Record.  Short Bus is so damn goooooood, but yeah I have to listen to the newest one still...thank you spotify.
