Nine Inch Nails
are a riotous live act, and they’ve just shared a taste of their concert rigor via footage from a recent show at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s The Joint in Las Vegas. The new live video (dir. Brook Linder), which was taped June 16 and premiered Thursday, sees the industrial rockers crank out a cover of British artist Gary Numan’s “Metal.” In the midst of their show, a surprise guest joined them for the performance: Numan himself. Watch it all go down below.
Also during their June Las Vegas show, Nine Inch Nails performed frontman Trent Reznor’s collaborative David Bowie single, “I’m Afraid of Americans” and a Joy Division track, “Digital.” The band is also kicking off an expansive fall tour behind their latest album, Bad Witch, in September. But securing tickets to their Bad Witch tour is no walk in the park: Tickets are exclusively on sale at venue box office windows. On the tour, they’ll stop at such storied venues as Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheater and Hollywood’s Palladium. Find the complete list of dates, plus more information about that pesky purchasing caveat, here.
Bad Witch is the final in a trio of EP releases, following 2016’s Not The Actual Events and 2017’s ADD VIOLENCE. Listen to a single from Bad Witch, the hurried “God Break Down the Door,” here.
