NIN @ Virgin

Kanye West took a bit of a jab at the festival's schedule, specifically the choice concertgoers had to make between his performance and one from Nine Inch Nails happening at the same time at the other end of the park (a dilemma faced by fans at Chicago's Lollapalooza a week earlier). "It's not a black-or-white thing, it's not a rap-or-rock-and-roll thing," he exclaimed. "It's a good-music thing. We jam about good things from the heart. How can you pick between me and Trent Reznor?" [MTV]

Nine Inch Nails (and Kanye West) headlined Sunday night at the Virgin Festival in Baltimore (Aug 10, 2008). NIN also headlined Lollapalooza in Chicago exactly one week earlier.
