Trent Reznor w/ Htda_ at The Apollo in April (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
As discussed, Nine Inch Nails are back this year with a new album, Hesitation Marks, due out on September 3 via Columbia and a tour to follow. That tour includes a run with Godspeed You! Black Emperor that hits the NYC-area on October 14 at Barclays Center and October 15 at Prudential Center. Other shows on the tour are being opened by Explosions in the Sky, but none near NYC.
Since we last spoke, ticket info has been posted for both NYC-area shows. Tickets for both dates go on sale June 14 at 10 AM and there's a Live Nation preasle for the Prudential Center show starting June 13 at 10 AM.
As mentioned, Adrian Belew (Talking Heads/David Bowie collaborator and King Crimson member), who was initially on board to tour with NIN this year, has parted ways with the band. He took to facebook to comment on the issue: "concerning me being part of the 2013 Nine Inch Nails band: it didn't work."
All dates are listed, along with a stream of the new NIN single, below...
NIN @ T5, 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Trent Reznor is gonna be real busy for the forseeable future. While we already knew his new project How to destroy angels_ would be touring this year (including two shows in the NYC area), he's also reviving Nine Inch Nails as well. Says Trent:
I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked - which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows.UPDATE: Billboard says NIN are playing Lollapalooza.
The band is reinventing itself from scratch and will be comprised of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and me. The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014.
Lots of details and dates to come. See you soon.
Williamsburg Waterfront last year (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)
As I previously wrote, "there will be concerts at the Williamsburg Waterfront this summer. In fact, the plan is to have 10 ticketed shows and 5 free shows." And, "The five free concert dates are still TBD, but one will be of a classical/philharmonic nature, and one will be geared towards kids. The free shows may or may not be on Sundays or even on weekends, and they will definitely not have anything to do with Jelly."
Since then three ticketed shows have been announced: Kid Cudi on Wednesday, July 6th (on sale), Death Cab For Cutie/Frightened Rabbit on Tuesday, August 2nd (on sale 5/6, but a presale starts 4/29), and Sonic Youth/Wild Flag on Friday, August 12th (on sale Friday). Seven more announcements to come.
Service Charge-free tickets are available at the Best Buy Theater Box Office (44th and Broadway in Manhattan) and at Sound Fix Records (44 Berry St. at North 11th St. in Brooklyn).
Two of the five free shows have also now been announced. The first is nothing like what Jelly would have booked: Coheed and Cambria, Adrian Belew Power Trio, and Tigers Jaw play the Williamsburg Waterfront on Saturday, June 11th. The second is sort of like what Jelly might have booked, but more closely resembles what you'd get at Celebrate Brooklyn: Eugene Mirman "& Pretty Good Friends Featuring Kristen Schaal & Many Surprise Guests" open for They Might Be Giants at Wiliamsburg Waterfront on Friday, July 29th.
Assuming TMBG won't be playing a kids set, and that the comedians will tell a few dirty jokes, the free kids show announcement is still to come, as is the classical concert date info (which means just one more completely unknown free lineup to come). Both announced free shows open their doors at 5:30pm.
All five shows, ticketed and free, are part of the "2011 T-MOBILE WILLIAMSBURG WATERFRONT CONCERT SERIES PRESENTED BY OSA" and "supported by Onitsuka Tiger, Vitamin Water, and Brooklyn Brewery."
All five shows are listed in an easy-to-read format below....
