Vancouver weather woman Tamara Taggart to co-host Regis and Kelly

"And, as far as first-time trips to New York go, this one was going in style. [Kelly Ripa's LIVE! With Regis fill in, Tamara] Taggart, will vacation [in NYC] for a few days with her husband, musician Dave Genn.

"We saw Lady Liberty, Rockefeller Plaza and, we're both sushi lovers, so Nobu Tribeca is on the list as well as Il Mulino, which has been voted the best Italian restaurant in New York for the last 20 years. And Dave got us tickets to see the Nine Inch Nails farewell show at the Bowery, too. It holds around 500 people, which should be pretty incredible."

As to whether she is ready to pack up and take over the Big Apple, Taggart says it was a thrill but just another day on the job, too."
[The Vacouver Province]

After some waited over 24 hours just to get in the door, the first Nine Inch Nails show of the "Wave Goodbye" tour kicked off (after an opening set by the Horrors) around 9pm on Friday night and is is still underway (almost complete) and ended around 11:30. Naturally the lucky people at Bowery Ballroom (Trent Reznor included) have been snapping cell phone pics and tweeting away. Some of those pictures, with the 27 song setlist, below...

also also also Trent is no longer sober

Trent is the sweatiest man alive. If this music thing falls through for him, he can easily make a living off of anti-perspirant deals.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 12:30 AM

shirts were $30.

i heard trent is going to kill himself on stage at webster hall. this will be THE final NIN show.

Posted by bp | August 23, 2009 12:53 AM

It looks ridiculous to see NIN playing a room that small. So cool.

I cant believe i paid $500 for that..

Anon 2:52 am -

I can't beLIEve you came hear to bitch about it on here. Is that gonna get your parents $ back, trust fund *******?

btw: How much did I pay - ZERO! Next time, get a marker and paper and make a sign, fool!

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 3:19 AM

Yeah shirts were $30, not $70! And if you know what's best for you, you'll get yours as soon as you get there because they were sold out before the opening act.

Posted by anon | August 23, 2009 9:21 AM

I couldn't get tickets for the Bowery Show but ended up pulling a pair for Webster Hall. Obviously Bowery is the better venue, but what can you do. I do have to say I'm very pleased with the setlist from Bowery, mainly since it leaves a ton of stuff I'm hoping to hear available for tonight. Trent won't do back to back club shows with the same setlist (I hope).

who needs amateurs with prosumer cameras when we have cell phone pics that are faster and more convenient? gets the point across no?

Fuck you haters: at least this guy did (and does) something constructive with his anger.

Posted by greg | August 23, 2009 9:42 AM

The security guards working the door were getting people in $200-$400 per person. One of them was walking up and down throughout the night and would come up to whoever was trying to get into the show, stupid NIN fan would then pass the money to him. Then they would let them into the doors, the 'regular' exit for the show where it says no 're-entry.'

Bowery please control your scumbag security guards.

Posted by dumb security guards | August 23, 2009 11:20 AM

the show was one of my best music experiences. NIN give so much to their fans. thank you!

Posted by annie momus | August 23, 2009 11:33 AM

ok, so i was there last night. my first time seeing NIN since the downward spiral tour (which was in a big arena). i guess this is to be expected, but that show was much better than last night. the much smaller venue and intimacy couldn't make up for the fact that this band is nowhere near as ferocious as his band in 94. show was good.. but it had a hint of "phone it in/vegas-era NIN" to it..

moral of the story: forget the dinosaurs, and check out the new up and coming bands with that true raw energy. these shows never live up to the hype leading up to them.

11:20 - how do you know Bowery chiefs aren't in on the scam? just saying...

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 12:42 PM

i paid $500 to this big black dude who let me in the door on the left which led directly to the room.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 12:54 PM

"Bowery please control your scumbag security guards."

Why are they scumbags? We don't even know if what you're saying is true, but if it is, they got those people in to see a show they would have otherwise missed. The security guards didn't force them to pay it, they obviously wanted to, and since the security was taking a huge risk, they deserve to get paid for it.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:01 PM

Why pay that kind of money??
You're better to wait a year or two until these boring old dinosaurs hit the casino circuit.

Posted by FrostBiteBoy | August 23, 2009 1:03 PM

come on lets be real, they had to have an a plan so everyone was in on it. you not gonna have one rogue security guy doing this, most likely everyone was in on it and they split the money after.

This is not the first time I heard of something like that happening either...

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:09 PM

I got in by handing security a 2 dollar bill

Posted by Tre | August 23, 2009 1:09 PM

I got in by blowing the shirtless, dancing LD.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:26 PM

Yeah, it was real easy to get into the show last night for all you idiots that didn't go because you thought it was sold out well then you are fucking stupid plain and simple. The security was letting in people left and right. Oh well, your loss you fucking idiots!

I love NIN...going to the second T5 show. I do not, nor will I ever expect what I saw back in '94 at a midsize venue (Oakland's Henry J. Kaiser). Marilyn Manson (when he was kinda scary) followed by Jim Rose Circus (the old pick up a brick with your dick trick) and NIN headlining. The angst was incredible. The show fantastic.

Anyone else miss the cornstarch days?

1:09 LOL
I should've gone down there and brought the ones I've saved since they got rare. That's priceless.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:57 PM

in deed, those days are missed! i was in miami when manson blew robin on stage...the destruction of keyboards, and pits the size of hurricanes! it seems all for not now, yet still awesome!....or maybe nostalgia disguises the lack of awesomeness in my brain!....either way, epic!

what time does nin go on tonight?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 3:37 PM

amazing show, i got trent's tambourine after the beginning of the end

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 4:15 PM

The old NIN shows were some of the best I'll ever see, but how pathetic would it be if Trent was still smashing keyboards and beating the shit out of his band? I'm glad he evolved to the point where the show is more about the music than the spectacle.

Still,there's something to be said for spectacle:

Can't wait for Tuesday. How were the Horrors?

The Horrors were just that.......HORRORS. They suck donkey nuts. Cure ripoffs like someone already said. Not cool TR, not cool.

7. Something I Can Never Have (Still)
10.Banged And Blown Through (Saul Williams cover)

Stop lying. You weren't there.

One of the best shows I've seen. Thank you so much to NIN and Bowery for making this happen. Yes, security was taking bribes to let people in the doors (I saw a woman give a guard $500 to let her in).

Here's to David Bowie showing up tonight at Webster Hall!

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 5:35 PM

did they sell posters?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 6:39 PM

Yes they sold posters...two different ones. They were $20 each.

Lord Bendover and the Upper Crust blew these plebian NIN turds away last nite at the Mercury Lounge! Long love Rocque and Roll!

Is Bowery Presents going to fire the security guards?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 10:17 PM

If Bowie is smart, being the aristocrat he is, he was at the phenomenal Upper Crust show at the Mercury Lounge hanging with his spiritual brother, Lord Bendover, rather than comuning with fat, bald, bloated and souless Twent Weznor.
