Nine Inch Nails wrapped up their awesome “Cold and Black and Infinite” tour with The Jesus and Mary Chain with a six-night run at LA’s Hollywood Palladium, which concluded on Saturday (12/15). Like the rest of the tour, the LA run was full of surprises. At night one (12/7), they brought out Mariqueen Maandig (Trent Reznor’s wife and singer of his band How to Destroy Angels) for three HTDA songs, including two NIN had never performed live before. Mariqueen also joined them at nights five (12/14) and six (12/15), as did Bowie/NIN collaborator Mike Garson (whose home and studio were sadly destroyed in the recent California wildfires). With Garson, they did The Fragile‘s “Just Like You Imagined” for the first time in nearly a decade on 12/14, amongst others.

A big surprise also came during the encore on 12/14, when Gary Numan joined NIN for their cover of his song “Metal” (as he’s done a few times in the past). Watch videos of “Metal,” “Just Like You Imagined,” and one of the HTDA songs, along with the setlists from the final two nights, below.

In case you missed it, check out our pictures and review of night one at Radio City, review of night one at Kings Theatre, and pictures of night one at Aragon Ballroom. Also, Trent posted a playlist of the songs he played between sets on this tour.
