Tonight, at the O2 arena, I’ll see what might be my last Nine Inch Nails gig. Trent has said that he’s putting the band – at least in its live form – on indefinite hiatus.
We’ll see. I plan to enjoy tonight, though. Seriously, with a Mew/Jane’s Addiction/Nine Inch Nails triple-bill it’d be hard not to.
I’m a few days behind because I was lollygagging about in Ottawa, but the big news in Nine Inch Nails world is that Trent Reznor’s decided to chill for a while.The band will do a co-headlining tour with Jane’s Addiction – who invited NIN onto the first Lollapalooza tour, giving the band their big break – and then go into hiatus afterwards.
This is probably good timing. NIN have produced a few years of very good concerts. I just want to see one more European leg and I’ll be happy. Then Trent go move on to making a reality TV show about trying to kick the “none more black” clothing habit, or whatever it is he wants to do next.
