Trent Reznor & Peter Murphy @ Terminal 5 in NYC - 8/25/09 (via nin.com)
Nine Inch Nails

As Kanye West and Amber Rose watched from the balcony (sorry for the gossip) at Terminal 5 last night (8/25), Nine Inch Nails played 29 songs at their 3rd of 4 NYC shows this week. The major highlight of the evening (for me at least) was that Peter Murphy of Bauhaus joined them for 3 of those songs, one of which was a Bauhaus cover ("Kick in the Eye). It wasn't the first time it's happened, but it was very sweet.

Earlier in the set, NIN played "I'm Afraid of Americans", before which Trent said something about getting to work with an idol on a song a few years ago, but unfortunately, despite that tease, David Bowie was nowhere to be found in the building. Now that I think of it, they totally should have had Peter sing Bowie's part on that one.

Trent introduced Peter Murphy by saying that back in 1990, when they were young and just coming up, someone helped them out and took them on the road. Then came Peter to the stage to help them perform "Reptile" which was followed by "Kick in the Eye". Peter returned in the encore to help NIN do their cover of Joy Division's "Dead Souls". His stage presence is awesome.

I thought the whole show was great, but it was the final ten songs that really made it feel like there was energy in the large, cavernous room. Basically: Peter--> Peter--> Hands That Feeds--->Head Like a Hole---> all encore songs w/ 1 Peter again---> final-emotional-Hurt. What did you think?

Night one (Bowery Ballroom) got "smallest venue ever". Night two (Webster Hall) got The Downard Spiral from start to finish. Night three got Peter Murphy. Night four happens tonight (Wednesday, August 26th), again at Terminal 5. All 10 "Wave Goodbye" dates (Trent at one point said something like "I'll miss you guys") (which bothers me a little because I don't actually believe this is the end) HERE. Stay tuned for more. Full setlist below.

He played entirely too much from "With Teeth" but there were so many songs played overall, I was happy. Total bummer that Bowie wasn't there, I'm not that into Murph. Amazing how long Reznor went, man has stamina.

Reptile was a mess near the end. Murphy skipped a line and everything went a little off. But, he made up for it with Dead Souls. Best rendition I've heard yet.

I'm totally not buying that this is the end for NIN. This is Trent being dramatic....again. It sells more tickets if everyone actually believes this is the end.....just at Bonnaroo, he proclaims how "this is the last date we'll play in the US"....and he knew he was gonna do "final" US dates the whole time. He's a horrible publicist.

you guys should have seen how the people on the floor looked like from the balcony, it was like the 8th wonder of the world or something, when in the beginning the lights were low and people had their phones up or whatnot and the whole floor just started moving and undulating like some alien organism. unbelievable.

@1:40 AM - What exactly are you asking?

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 1:41 AM

i think he's made it clear that this is the end of the touring version of NIN, not necessarily the studio output.
...but yeah, i guess he had a change of heart. i always figured he'd do at least SOME shows to close things proper, rather than just some festival stuff.
remember, this is a guy that was basically notorious for going away for long stretches of time. it's not that unbelievable.

I agree with BV on one thing- the David Bowie vocal from tape has got to go. If he's not there just have someone else sing it or just drop it altogether. I hate it when bands use backing tapes (and it also sounded like they also used tape on some of the choruses, though I can't confirm that).

Three much greater legends: Dio, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler played at Wa Mu (sorry Vinnie). Twent Roidner is using the down on his luck, no record sales, pot-bellied and balding has-been Peter Murphy as a kind of cut-rate Bowie since Bowie is snubbing him for these shows. Poor little Twent can only get the C-list celebs out for him in his oh so dramatic "farewell" appearances. "Undead undead undead" alright! Maybe Kathy Griffin will make a guest appearance next show!

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 7:02 AM

So when does Twent Woidner cop Ozzy's "Retirement Sucks" motto after this C-list drama queen exploitation of his fans is done? He'd better watch out if he uses that phrase because Sharon will sue his ass.

I honestly think Trent's serious about ending his touring "as NIN". Nails has a pretty specific sound, and it sounds really good coming out of an angry young man. His comments about not wanting to be an old clown entertaining kids... he meant that.

Trent's a pretty talented muscian. If he started something new that isn't "industrial" at all, I don't think anyone would be too surprised.

And you people expecting PHM or The Fragile in it's entirety are kind of crazy (though I never thought they'd do A Warm Place live...)

Dont get me started on the cameras...I'm 5"2, and all I could see for the first song was crappy camera/iphone screens...though kudos to the tall guy who videoed the whole show on a decent looking camera...Bet those arms hurt today...They played until about 11:35-45 or so? not sure....

I seriously doubt he is on steroids. When people get into their mid 30's - 40's the frame (body) starts to fill out a little. Most people that slack get fat .....he obviously didn't.


When you point fingers at others, you are always pointing your finger (and the attention to "flaws") away from yourself. A common and addictive way of not being honest with yourself.

Sounds like you are young (enjoy!) and looking for any angle to deflect from personal insecurities ...who knows.

@ 9:50

If the album (or even the band for that matter) was any good I don't think they would have had a problem selling out the WaMu Theater @ MSG last night, which they were FAR from doing. I got one of those mass emails from MSG with a 2-for-1 special for tickets which they clearly only do when the show is majorly hurting for sales. They even had a decent opener in C&C yet I bet the place was maybe 3/4 full. Poor choice of venue, if you ask me, but still if you like a band enough you go see them wherever they're playing...case in point, NIN at T5.

This is definitely a fairwell tour, Reznor is getting married and wants to make babies. Says he's done with touring, but he never said he's done with music. I'm sure he'll still make music and be a special guest sometimes, but no more NIN tour - which is good cause he is amazing, though not what he used to be (too happy).

Legitimate question!

I'm going tonight with a friend on crutches. Where's the best place for us to try and watch from? I've made it this long without ever having had to see a show at T5 so don't know the venue at all and just want to know the best place for her to see the show and not get killed...if said place exists at all.

Any suggestions/guidance is appreciated.

Posted by Funderburgh | August 26, 2009 11:06 AM

I would hang back on the sides on the floor by the the hallway to the bathrooms (Not the best sounding area of the room but closest you can get to the stage without getting knocked over). or get there very early and hobble up to the third floor balcony and hope for a rail spot.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 11:09 AM

To crutches question...

Prepare for the worst, b/c that's what T5 is. Once you're past that, I would suggest getting there early enough to secure a spot along the railing on the second floor, or rear center somewhere. Stay away from the floor, you will lose that battle. I would also suggest staying away from the 3rd floor, as it is hotter than the bowels of hell up there. Good luck.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 11:34 AM

I started out towards the back, near the bar. And throughout the show kept getting closer and closer to the stage, ending up about 5-6 people from the front.

The difference in the energy level and enjoyment got better and better the closer to the front.

People in the back were just sort of tapping their feet and bopping their head.

Up front it was chaos, but come on, this is a NiN show. There were short girls up there and they were doing just fine. It was rowdy and hectic as hell, but it is so much more enjoyable.

If this were Radiohead or something, the balcony would be awesome, but you don't get that energy and it feels like an entire different show up close.

When I arrived and looked up to the second floor opposite the entry there were people lining the railing, but only 1 deep. They also had bar stools it appeared. So i would get there as soon as the doors open and peg it upstairs, see if you can get a chair.
Also the railing is like tension wires, and curves out towards the bottom, some people were sitting on the floor with their legs dangling over (the wires keep you safe) and people standing behind them leanign on railing over there head..

If you are on crutches, wheelchair or otherwise disabled, usually the security guards have a section set off on stage left (below the VIP) with seats and space for handicapped/injured people. Just ask them and look sad.

T5 did an excellent job of handling things in my opinion. I had my card swiped by 5:15 and I wasn't near the front of the line by any means [however I wasn't on the West Side Highway either] When doors actually opened, you got patted down, went inside, and the line split once again. If you had wristband go right through, if not, you had to have your card scanned there. It went smooth though thanks to the two lanes.

Also, NIN presale ticket holders were let in starting around 6:30 while TM was let in around 7.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 12:30 PM

@12:01 - The line was actually pretty quick if you paid attention to the staff advising you to walk in and have ID ready. Most people still stood on line at the box office for no valid reason and made the whole process go slow.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 1:14 PM

Heaven and Hell were smoking last night and the new single "Bible Black" went over extremely well, with most of the (very large, if not entirely sold out) crowd chanting the lyrics. We'll see if Trent Roidner is doing anywhere as near as well as Dio is when he hits his 60s. And as far as his remark about a not wanting to be like Gene Simmons, acting the clown for the amusement of the kiddies when he's older, Mick Jagger also said he wouldn't be singing "Satisfaction" when he was 30. Reznor can talk all the crap he wants to right now, but whether he sticks to it is another question entirely. My bet is that he's full of shit (maybe that's why he looks so puffed up).

Would be nice to see "Get Down Make Love" get dusted off for old time's sake

Who do I have to AF to hear Sin, Sanctified, or We're In This Together tonight? Christ.

What time did the show end? I'm going tonight... & have an extra ticket...

@9:39 -- Heaven and Hell's new album kicks the crap out of anything Twent Wenoir has done since at least The Downward Spiral. Weznor would give his left nut (shrunken no doubt due to excessive roid usage) to have the legendary Tony Iommi onstage with him. But Iommi would never lower himself like Bowie did by appearing with Twentie.

I can't believe people still support this garbage. Just let him flounder around doing half assed work like he's been doing for years, go listen to bands he ripped off like Skinny Puppy.

Phil Anselmo could beat the fuck out of roid boy Weznoir. Down would blow these NIN suckers clear off the stage. NOLA, baby!

SKINNY PUPPY positively OWNS Twent Weznor. If you little Williamsburg snots want to see a real industrial band who doesn't need D-list guest stars as an excuse to put on a show, here's your chance:

To the dude who keeps posting in every single NIN thread about roid usage, how awesome skinny puppy is, and how much "Twent" should hang it up:

You are a sad individual. You clearly have a personal chip on your shoulder over something he (allegedly) did to you, or else you are just a pathetic person with absolutely nothing better to do. Jesus, man..enough already. We get it.

Guys, I have an extra ticket. Free of charge tonite. What I need? you could just get me 2 drinks and a shirt. thanks!

Posted by extra TICKET | August 26, 2009 3:24 PM

There is no way in hell Reznor is retiring to "make babies" with that chain smoking man he was kissing in the balcony last night. I give him a YEAR before he's back on tour. This man also said back in June at Bonnaroo, "that" was the last US show ever. When are NIN fans gonna learn they can't believe shit out of Reznor's mouth??

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 3:25 PM

Twentie Weznoir has taken so many creatine and nitric oxide speedballs that his mind is going mushy as his body bloats and bloats. He lies so much he doesn't even know when he's telling the truth anymore. Anyone who doesn't realize that Skinny Puppy absolutely OWN Twentie is beyond help anyway. And look at Twent with his pretend David Bowie, Peter Murphy, who always was a Bowie wannabe anyway, up there making fools out of themelves as Bowie ignores them all. Bowie did lower himself to once share a stage with Twent during a tour: a remember a NIN fan screaming "LET TWENT SING IT!!!" when Bowie shared the vocals on "Reptile" and NIN fans throwing papaer airplanes at Bowie as he did a great, impassioned version of "My Death" by Jacques Brel. Pathetic, stupid NIN fans, yes, but Bowie asked for it. Hopefully he'll never lower himself like that again.

I hear that Twentie's LA guest is going to be Glenn Danzig, who is going to perform a Satanic sacrifice on Twent and send him to the demonic netherworld where he longs to be with Sharon Tate and her dead baby.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 3:46 PM

For the record, Trent was never a heroin addict he was coke head and an alcoholic. Also the show in '94 was at Roseland Ballroom, cause i was there too. Also saw him at MSG the same year.

Posted by anon | August 26, 2009 3:49 PM

who pissed in that guy's Cheerios?

Posted by Funderburgh | August 26, 2009 3:53 PM

Twentie was doing smack when he lived in Roman Polanski's old house and fantasized about being one of Charlie Manson's acid-fried bourgeois hippies who killed Polanski's wife Sharon Tate and cut the baby right out of her stomach. Twent lived there and did heroin so he could be like his hero Charlie Manson and enter the Downward Spiral and lose his mind so he could do his artistic masterpiece. And now he wants to be all cuddly and make babies and take steroids with his new GF. What a guy.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 3:56 PM

It's true. It was Roseland and it kicked ass. They came back for in their first arena tour with... POP WILL EAT ITSELF opening up. Good times.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 4:04 PM

Hey "Twentie" person...you sound and are coming off like a bad pro wrestler. Your schpiel sucks.

Posted by blackhat | August 26, 2009 4:10 PM

They played Webster and Roseland in May '94, back to back I believe. Trust me, I was there. Some naked techno chicks were the openers, then in August Marilyn Manson was the opener.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 4:10 PM

3:56, etc.- Please shut the fuck up. Trent isn't reading this, his fans are. If your goal is to make them question their NIN fandom, you're failing miserably, as your comments only make them hate you instead (whoever you may be). If you're doing it because you're bored, go do something productive with your life. Spilling bile all over an anonymous message board because people like someone you despise isn't productive or admirable, just sad and frustrating. Why are you wasting your life shitting on famous people anonymously?

Posted by futility | August 26, 2009 4:16 PM

it's true. i've wasted my life.

Posted by gene simmons | August 26, 2009 4:20 PM

Yep you are correct. 5/13/94 at Webster Hall and 5/14/94 at Roseland. I looked it up.

Posted by anon | August 26, 2009 4:27 PM

At Roseland, Marilyn Manson and Jim Rose Circus opened up for them. I'd never seen anything like that show at the time.

Anyone remember 12/7/94, the show at MSG was postponed to the next night b/c the guitarrist broke his finger in a bus accident? Great show.

Twent Weznor Fans to Bowie during "Reptiles" duet: "LET TWENT SING IT!!!!"

LOL.

Twent Weznoir fans during great Bowie performance of "My Death": Throwing paper airplanes at him.

LOL.

It's you Twent Rezroid fans who have the problems, not me. Enjoy the 3rd-rate Bowie impersonator Peter "where's my hair?" Murphy 2nite!

Posted by Gene S. | August 26, 2009 5:13 PM

Is this Pretty Hate Machine thing confirmed?!?!

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 5:20 PM

I just hope they play 3 or 4 songs of Pretty Hate Machine tonight! "Sin", "Kinda I Want To", "Sanctified", "That's What I get".... any of those would be AMAZING.

"We're In This Together" would also be friggen awesome.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 5:21 PM

i just looked at the setlists and they really havent played much Pretty Hate Machine yet. I would bet we get it tonight.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2009 5:26 PM

I doubt they'll play Sin. The drumming is supposed to be really difficult (which is why they haven't played it since 2005) and Ilan Rubin probably hasn't rehearsed it.

You know what would be "friggen awesome?" If Twent Wezroid just went the fuck away as promised.

But he won't......this is all drama queen exploitation bullshit from a master of hype.

And by the way, Skinny Puppy IS awesome. I guarantee you that they will pound Rezroid into the dust.

what's wrong with the phrase "friggen awesome". Sounds a lot cooler than "Wezroid".

Wezroid, Roidwez, Roidner, Weznoir, --- Twent has
to say "he'll miss all of you ... especially your money." Which is why he'll be back soon to get some more of it.

Guess that career as a Turkish sufi muslim mystic isn't working out for poor old Bela Lugosi's undead undead undead if he is begging sweaty old Twent Roider to let him sing a couple of mouldy oldies togther. Kick in the eye? These guys would be lucky to kick one another in the shin.

Just a little over 40 years after he murdered Mary Jo Kopechne!
