The Australian/NZ tour is already moving right along, but here’s a small recap of the Japan shows from last week (above photos all from Instagram during the stop in Japan).
Best pro-shot photos that have been posted around are from Dana (distortion) Yavin for Brooklyn Vegan: here.
I guess the most interesting thing to note Robin-wise from the shows is that they brought back “31 Ghosts IV” (video here). The solo is way different from the LITS version!
NIN also brought back “Beside You In Time” (video here), which is the first time NIN has played the track live with Robin in the band. Really cool to see as I’ve hoped they’d bring it back one day.
Also, they’ve covered a couple How To Destroy Angels songs live with Mariqueen at a couple shows now, so if you want to check out the videos: "Ice Age" isn’t like action packed or anything (not that I expected it to be) but you can see Robin getting into "BBB".
Episode info (setlist + photos) is up on the Austin City Limits website here for the show that was filmed last tour (above photo credit: KLRU photo by Scott Newman on acltv.com). Just over a month to go before this airs on PBS on April 5th! (Edit: Oh yeah, and there is a video of "Came Back Haunted"if you haven’t caught that yet.)
Nine Inch Nails are now back on tour. Not much to report yet (well, it’s barely been a day) but it looks like Robin’s still getting his “Came Back Haunted” dance on: NIN Tokyo - Night 1. So, there is that.
Will post more when there is more. I know many of you reading this are going to shows in the near future (or maybe even today)—hope you all have a great time!
