Nine Inch Nails + Cold Cave - Live @ The O2 Arena, 23rd May 2014
|Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks Tour|
I came to Nine Inch Nails quite late on, via Johnny Cash, but when you start to look at the volume of work that Trent Reznor and co. have amassed and the consistent level of quality you can't help but be impressed. Revolutionaries in the industrial genre, NIN are famed for their incendiary shows and now they're bringing that experience to the UK for a series of shows, the highlight of which will be their appearance at The O2, London. These guys have been doing this since 1988 so you know they're going to be pretty well rehearsed and, if you ask really nicely, they might even do some requests. Inevitably, though, the band will be up on stage to promote their latest album, 'Hesitation Marks', as well as taking us through the highlights of their extensive back catalogue.
Supporting NIN on tour will be Cold Cave, aka Wesley Eisold. Cold Cave is something of a pioneer himself in the field of Dark Wave music which should make for a moody and scene setting opening to the concert (not to mention a cheap support band in terms of carrying equipment around). Anyway, what I'm basically saying is that this looks like an awesome show from one of the last remaining great rock acts of our time. I think you know what to do.
