FRONT took a trip to see Nine Inch Nails on their ‘farewell’ tour* last night, and other than our overly-enthusiastic clapping and the epilepsy-inducing light show, the only thing we can remember of the whole night is how fucking insane Trent Reznor and co are. Honestly, the whole thing was like being buggered in the eyes and kicked in the side of the head, but in the best way imaginable.
Anyway, don’t go and have a cry if you weren’t there, cos NIN are set to make their final** UK festival appearance at Sonisphere on 2 August, and with tickets still being available, you can head along and revel in the noise. Just like everyone at Reading did two years back in that video at the top, look.
Even if you can’t get along to Sonisphere, though, you can follow the action through frontarmy.com, where we’ll again be liveblogging the weekend’s mentalness, albeit a little better than we shambolically did from Download. Stay tuned for more word on that, mofos.
* We don’t believe Trent when he says it’s the last tour
** And it doesn’t matter how many times he says it
