NIN @ Jones Beach (more by Zach Dilgard)
NIN

Getting right to the point, we're going to play a handful of shows in NYC, Chicago and LA starting August 22nd. They will be informal affairs in medium to small venues with longer set-lists, possible special guests, cool openers and other surprises. Upon reflection, the NIN/JA tour felt like we had to rush through sets due to a limited allotted set length and many shows were in daylight - it just didn't feel right to end NIN that way. An offer to headline V-Fest in Toronto (being announced soon) set the idea in motion to play some FUN shows to end this up with. If we can get it together we'll film these shows, too.

In NYC we'll be playing Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5. In Chicago, the Aragon Ballroom. In LA we'll be at The Wiltern, The Henry Fonda, The Palladium and The Echoplex. These should be cool, unusual and unique shows and I hope you come out - this is it.

So far, The Horrors will be joining us for some shows in NYC, Mew will be with us at other shows in NYC, Chicago and LA, and perhaps more.
Details and ticket info will be announced shortly, so check back.

Thanks,
Trent

The Horrors also have a bunch of dates coming up with Crocodiles.

Morrissey did something similar, but it was Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall, and Carnegie Hall (and Wellmont Theater). Though he just did it to promote a record, not to quit touring. Green Day also just did the Bowery/Webster Hall thing.

What the crap that's awesome. Ticketing will be a nightmare though.

Posted by dave | July 7, 2009 4:09 PM

Trent is pretty good to his fan club. Hopefully there will be a fighting chance to get into at least one of these.

If I get into Bowery or Webster, I will probably die.

Can't wait for this...

Posted by Dan | July 7, 2009 4:37 PM

screw Bowery...they should do a month-long residency at Market Hotel.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 4:44 PM

NIN should play the new bay stage at jones beach.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 4:49 PM

honestly... I think I'd rather see them at T5 than at Webster Hall... Webster Hall at the end of August is going to be a miserable hot box. Does the A/C even work in that place?

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 4:51 PM

wouldve been cooler if it was MHOW instead of Terminal 5, but holy shit i'll take this!

They should just do a residency at Petes Candy Store!

Last time NIN did a club tour was 2005, it was sick and disgusting and fucking awesome.

Can hipsters go back to hating this band, so us nerds who've been obsessed with them for 20 years can get tickets?

Posted by Paul | July 7, 2009 4:59 PM

i can totally see Trent just randomly posting on his twitter in the next couple of days "tickets on sale... now" without any previous notice

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 4:59 PM

Rockwood Music Hall!!

Would someone please send Trent the wrap-it-up box?

Posted by Eggs1234 | July 7, 2009 5:03 PM

NIN is planning an invite only secret show at Death By Audio. He had A Place To Bury Strangers on tour with NIN last year.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 5:03 PM

"it just didn't feel right to end NIN that way" HA HA HA

keep us posted on what feels right, Trent.

Ditto in the wrap it box...I enjoy some of his thoughts, but musically it just isn't there for me anymore

YESSS! And with out shiitttty Jane's or shittier stupid social club

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 6:08 PM

Tickets apparently onsale Friday. 2-ticket limit, fan club presale ONLY.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 6:10 PM

looks like they shut down the fan club, I hope they only sell tickets to existing members

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 6:10 PM

Next year Trent will be back with his "Retirement Sucks" tour a la Ozzy.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 6:17 PM

amazing, but it will be near impossible to get tix

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 6:23 PM

if the shows aren't done via paperless ticket/will call method, i can totally see these being the scalper scam events of the year.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 6:33 PM

It will be further proof we're not in a depression when we start seeing how much people are going to be paying for these tickets

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 7:00 PM

4:57 made me smile.


Don't get your hopes up kids. You're not getting in. These shows will be packed with chubby record exec types wearing ties and checking their blackberries while the band plays.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 7:31 PM

Can't wait for this show... i've got just the tie picked out! I'm typing this on my blackberry while i'm at another show!

Posted by Fat-Cat McChubbs | July 7, 2009 7:41 PM

really hope i can score tickets for bowery...at least webster hall.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 7:47 PM

It is strange that NIN choses to play clubs in the only city where they can actually sell out a 20,000 seat arena in minutes.


Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 8:21 PM

This is an arena tour with big lighting and screens
showing images,is it not?How can they reproduce that
in Terminal fucking 5?

It is a pain in the arse to get tickets to a huge band playing tiny clubs.Why the fuck not just play one sold out show at MSG and then quit to get hitched and pop out kids?Many fans wont get tickets to these shows 4 sure.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 8:34 PM

wow, ticketing headache begins. I have $350 to spend.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 8:54 PM

i wish it was will call and only single tickets were sold to people. Even with 2 tickets sold you KNOW scalpers are going to sell the other ticket for obscene prices.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 9:15 PM

THIS IS IT.

Posted by Michael Jackson | July 7, 2009 9:25 PM

pretty messed up to do a 1 ticket minimum. you must have zero friends.

My chubby record executive ass was denied tickets. There is a blanket no across the industry. These shows are for fans so fuck off. Good luck everyone

move on

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2009 11:02 PM

8:34 - You would honestly rather see a show at MSG than Bowery fucking Ballroom? Seriously? I don't even know what to say to that.

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2009 1:28 AM

HOLY F'in SHIT! I CAN"T WAIT! Trent played the best NIN show I ever saw last time at Jones Beach! Even without all the over the top special effects he was truly on FIRE! It really makes me believe these shows really could be the SHIZNITE! The Horrors new album has quickly become my favorite of the year, it'll be great to see them 2.

BTW - How can so many people who hate music constantly visit music sites and waste all our times to blog how they dislike music? Put down the keyboards you loosers and listen to some good albums!

"keep us posted on what feels right, Trent."

I don't know about Trent right now, but your mehm's rectum feels mighty fine.

the guys from NIN had cameos in "Nob Competition 6-Life With Wein" It is playing for free at RiverCocks festival on 163rd and Nob St.

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2009 2:00 AM

Way to go non corp Trent and work with Bowery Presents who is even worse than Live Nation on a local level. Look behind the curtain.
