Nine Inch Nails

"And so ... my NYC NINventure has come to a close. Last night, Nine Inch Nails played their second show at Terminal 5, which was their last in NYC for the foreseeable future. It's hard to believe that all 4 NYC shows are over already but the band are already on their way to Chicago, IL for the 2 shows there before they make their way to Canada for their final festival performance there. Last night's Terminal 5 show clocked in at about 2 hours and 45 minutes and provided a raucously fun send off for the NYC fans.

Peter Murphy was, once again, a special guest performer for last night's show but he managed to out do his surprise appearance at Tuesday night's show." [Pink is the New Blog]

Last night's setlist HERE. More pictures and video below....

Wow, didn't know Peter MEHrphy hired a new backup band. The keyboard player looks like he plays for the Detroit Red Wings.

that smoke makes for tough picture taking conditions.

Did anyone else see the sound mixer guy rocking out?
He was going off, i thought he was gonna start smashing things.

CRAP! What a waste of money! I've never been more bored in my entire life. I thought there might be a cooler surprise other than Peter Murphy. Murphy is embarrassing. That's the best Twent could come up with for his farewell to New York?

Bye Bye Twent. You won't be missed.

"Bye Bye Twent. You won't be missed."

Some people are very, very sick and should go seek help.

It was actually the lighting designer (not the sound mixer guy) who was rocking out up there. He does it at every NIN show. His name is Jason. Nice guy. Loves Nails.

Posted by wembley | August 27, 2009 2:16 PM

Was kanye at this show as well? Anyone spot any musicians?

P.S. Come back soon NIN!
I bet they will be back within 5 years.

NIN sucks. I know so many people who sold their tickets to the Bowery Ballroom show.

Goodbye hack! You are useless to us.

Posted by Christoph | August 27, 2009 2:31 PM

NIN was cool in '93

Good for you & your friends, Christoph! You guys are so hip!

Posted by M | August 27, 2009 2:33 PM

Bowie famously "retired" when he was playing Ziggy Stardust in the early 1970s, and his fanboy Twent is pulling the same schtick now. He'll be back solo, or under some other moniker than NIN as a way of getting around the "retirement" BS.
He'll probably start out as a keyboardist for Peter MEHrphy's next tour, keep it low key and all that for awhile.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 2:48 PM

Hey Christoph,

Either you or your friends are bullshitting. Why, because there is no way, basically impossible to sell the tickets to Bowery Ballroom or any of the shows SINCE whoever purchased the tickets had to be present with credit card and photo ID in order to get in. So what did they sell air?

Yes, if they paid good money to go see Twent Weznor, they should be committed immediately.

Posted by Christiane F. | August 27, 2009 3:15 PM

I hate people who like NIN. They're all fat, ugly boring and uncreative people. Why is Trent "retiring"? duh, cause he's not good anymore. But I respect that he admits to his limited capabilites, and will go away for about 3-5 years. I'm sure he will come back by then to torture us more with his crap music.

Posted by Jay Z | August 27, 2009 3:18 PM

Peter Murphy is pennyless and destroyed his career a long time ago. That's just a fact.

^^^ You are so right. Just like Amazing Baby, who have more haters, but everyone really loves them and their music and their sexy bods. What a dumb douche 3:27 is. I bet he's fat and ugly too.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 3:38 PM

NIN are (and always have been) a much better band than Radiohead. Live and on record.

Radiohead's last few albums have been BORING.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 3:40 PM

Im sad NIN fans exist too. It really is the demise of the music industry that sheople buy into this fake-Goth fuck.

"What a dumb douche 3:27 is. I bet he's fat and ugly too."

Spoken like a true 14-year-old. Seriously, we all know BV readers love to insult each other-- especially when they don't share the same musical tastes-- but for God sake's put some thought & creativity into your insults! "Fat & ugly?!" I feel like I'm in a fucking middle school recess yard! Christ!

Top 5 Favorite NIN songs-

1- Paranoid Android
2- KArma Police

This site used to be fun to read. Now it's full of immature college kids making fun of each other & trying to be funny.

What happened, BV?!

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 4:18 PM

BV is a Blog. It's always been free for opinions bud. If you can't take the fact that NIN is simple minded uncreative fashion crap, than read another blog.

Like Trent, you won't be missed 4:18

I like NIN but enough is enough already. Thank the lord there aren't any more shows in town.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 4:23 PM

Oh I never said I was going anywhere, 4:22. I'm just saddened that this site has been overrun with immature assholes with superiority complexes... well, even more so than usual.

But you must be that guy who keeps posting about NIN fans not having any tastes in all the NIN-related BV posts. Keep it up! You're doing a bang-up job at raining on their parade. It's too bad you didn't start posting earlier-- maybe all those fans would have thought twice about snapping up NIN tickets if they read your insightful posts first.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 4:29 PM

4:22 - I agree that the boards are overrun by people like myself who like to tweak people like you. I get annoyed with myself sometimes, too.

We probably wouldn't do it so often if BV limited the stories on "boring/old/overrated 15 years ago and now it's just sad" bands.

Still, we love BV and we love you. Trent, not so much.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 5:00 PM

oops - i meant tweaking people like 4:29. 4:22 is right on.

4:29 - Agreed. BV is a great place to get news about upcoming shows, but the comments section is overrun by scenesters. Last week the cool thing was Emo, this week it's Indie.

4:22, 5:00, 5:01 - Keep the advice to yourself kid. I think everyone understands how a blog works.

White on white, transgender roid freaks
Back on the CD rack
Twent la Roidner is dead

The freaks have left the concert hall
The customers have been bled
Creatine, the career box set,

Twentie La Roidner is dead

Undead undead undead

The slutty gothic whores
file in black past his tomb
Buying t-shirts, buttons,
posters and DVDs too,

Alone in a darkened room
Trent count$$$$....

Yes Twent La Roidner is dead
Undead undead undead....

You do realize that you just said that you don't exist, right "dude?" Very profound.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2009 6:50 PM

Not to mention that "dude" just called himself a "tard." Typical Twent fan!

what wrong with some of guys here wrote in those negative comments?
Trent would be back in 2 years maybe 10 years as NIN.so what is wrong with that? he is an artist and he NEVER says he will retire. Just ignore him or NIN if you dont like his work,thats it. He never needs to have those haters as his fans.
