Trent Reznor Promises "Aggressive, Low-Key" Shows For Nine Inch Nails' UK Tour
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.20.2014



Trent Reznor told NME about his plans for Nine Inch Nails' upcoming UK arena tour. Reznor said it will be a smaller band than when he was at the Reading & Leeds Festivals last summer.

He said: "Back then, we had extremely elaborate eight-piece bands for a deep exploration of the new album. What we're doing in Australia and New Zealand now with Queens Of The Stone Age has tended to be much more aggressive. Not as new album heavy. A bit more low-key, with generally only four band members. When we committed to this cycle of touring, we knew it would be about a year, so we decided that each leg would have its own feel to it. People are able to tune in around the world more than they used to be, whether that be cell phones or live streams, so we wanted to keep more of a unique identity for each phase of the tour."

When asked why he's playing big arenas, he replied: "All of those soulless big arenas that are built mainly for other purposes than music - they all start to look the same. So people ask, 'Why are you playing them?' And the straight answer is that, if we play 10 club shows in a city, there's still a chorus of fans pissed off they didn't get tickets. So, for us, the question becomes one of, 'How do you take a big place designed for sports shows and find a way to turn it into something intimate and interesting?' That's a question we're constantly trying to deal with. And, I think we're quite successful at it right now."

Here are the tour dates:

Birmingham LG Arena(May 18)
Glasgow Hydro Arena(20)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (21)
London The O2(23)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena(24)
Manchester Phones 4U Arena (25)
