I'm not much into NIN's music but my girlfriend loves them, so we went to the August Detroit show. Pretty great performance, even though I didn't care for a lot of the songs. Bad-ass stage setup and fantastic lights.
Agreed. My only complaint is the seeming necessity of playing ambient Ghosts material in the middle, so they can hit you over the head with the heavy stuff immediately after. It's a brave move musically, but I just don't think those songs are that good. And watching Trent and Co. playing a bunch of acoustic percussion instruments and string bass is a little weird. But the hits are still great, they play plenty of them, and even the newer material (Slip, Year Zero, With Teeth) works pretty well live. And a helluva light/video show.
