Results of the Lights in the Sky Tour.

OK so the follow up to the Nine Inch Nails concert (Lights In The Sky Tour). At first it was basic lighting, nothing special. I was like “man this seems a little weak for NIN” then slowly the stage setup got more elaborate. With the 3 screen/light curtains that kept coming down. Allowing you sometimes to see the band through it and sometimes images. They put on one hell of a show. So good in fact that they are coming back to the Detroit area in November up to Grand Rapids and I am very tempted to make the drive. The concert was that good.

As far as playlist, they played obviously all of The Slip (which I might add is free off of the site). Played the usually stuff from Pretty Hate Machine and Downward Spiral. They touched on Year Zero and With Teeth. The one I was shocked to hear was they did quite a few songs from Ghosts which I think is a great set of instrumental albums. They did Echoplex with a touch screen monome, which was sweet.

The moral of the story is: if you are a NIN fan or even sort of like them, you will love the concert. So go out and get tickets.
