I did not miss my chance to see the opening show of this year’s North American NIN tour (even if it did mean I missed TOTC this year.) A super tight set list, impressions/comments after…

Even though the previous night NIN played at Pemberton Fest, this was truly the first night of the NIN/Soundgarden summer tour and this being my fifth NIN show this year, I could tell. But everyone around me was just taking it all in - I got the vibe that this (older) crowd hadn’t seen last year’s tour. There were definitely some technical issues, and TR was quick to point that out. He also noted that this would be the last tour for a long time. I figured that would be coming - two years of heavy touring and now it’s time for a lull. Maybe some new HTDA? One can only hope.
In any case, this set list was shorter than normal and no surprises whatsoever. Not a bad thing, I feel like this lineup is really the best one ever and enjoy every moment of watching them perform. The visuals were definitely a mix of things we’ve seen in the last few tours and I know once the kinks get worked out, we’ll see a few more songs on the set lists. For now, I have three more shows to look forward to next month.
