    They put on a very good show. Sound and lighting was excellent. Non stop music for 2 1/2 hrs, 5 or 6 song encore.
    Trent talked about growing up in PA, and made some observations on how his audience has changed over the years.
    The bass player used a Jag most of the time, as well as a Precision, a Jazz and a T-Bird on a few songs.

    Old school NIN fan here, but I didn't know they were touring. I don't pay attention to anything these days.

    I saw them open for janes addiction many years ago. There was only Pretty Hate Machine out at this time. Trent was very theatrical, but all and all they put on a great show.
     
  5. I saw NIN when Halo 21 came out and it was a damn good show. The light show was insane.. Did they have that big gate they lower down in front of the stage for the light show?

    Yes, two or three screens that went up and down for equipment changes. I got some pictures I'll try to upload later.
    Hey Greg C thanks for the info.

    That must have been amazing. I've only seen them once. they came with Perfect circle probably 5 years ago. That show ruled. i used to be huge into NIN.

    Their ep Broken is one of my favorite cd's of all time.
     
  8. I missed them when they came to Saint Louis, though I found out a few days later that apparently they're coming to my college in Columbia!

    Looking forward to the pics. And no problem, Jim. Justin's done great work with Beck and others, and seems like a very cool guy. If you poke around his forum, he gives some insight into what he's using on this tour.
