On October 14, 2013 the mighty Nine Inch Nails played to a somewhat packed house at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Hitting the stage at 8:45 pm, Trent Reznor and company played for a solid two hours playing tracks that spanned NIN’s catalog from “Head Like A Hole” to songs like “Copy of A” from their latest record “Hesitation Marks.” Criminally, “Closer” and “Only,” two of my favorite Nine Inch Nails songs were absent from the set list, but the light show that accompanied every song more than made up for the set list omissions. As the show went on, each track had more intricate lighting and at times, it felt like you were flying.
I would like to point out that from my seat, I probably sat near one of the best behaved crowds I’ve ever experienced at a concert, which is strange as you would expect lots of craziness at a NIN show. I guess it just goes to show you should never judge a band by their fans. If you remotely like any songs by Nine Inch Nails, you should definitely catch them in concert as you will witness a sound and visual extravaganza. The show nearly gives Pet Shop Boys a run for their money in terms of insane visuals, but I still think the Boys win the prize for the most visually stunning concert of 2013. Nine Inch Nails are a close second though.
Below, you can see a video of their classic “Terrible Lie.” Posting this video is so awesome for me because when NIN were a new act, I could honestly say “it was not my kind of music.” I’ve grown a lot since then and have really opened my mind in hopes to experience as much as possible and judging from the photos I post on this site, I have succeeded. Apologies if the video gets blurry at times. The lighting occasionally made my camera freak out. That is not a terrible lie. This is….
The setlist was:
Copy of A / 1,000,000 / Terrible Lie / March of the Pigs / Piggy / All Time Low / Disappointed / Came Back Haunted / Find My Way / The Frail / The Wretched / Satellite / In Two / Survivalism / Running / A Warm Place / Somewhat Damaged / Wish / Burn / The Hand That Feeds / Head Like A Hole
The Day The World Went Away / Even Deeper / While I’m Still Here / Black Noise / Hurt
