AceShowbiz - Rock band Nine Inch Nails will temporarily withdraw from music industry after their upcoming tour is wrapped up, so frontman Trent Reznor confirms. Plotting to hit the road with Jane's Addiction, they promise to bring "much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted" gigs.
"In NIN world, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of our first releases. I've been thinking for some time now it's time to make NIN disappear for a while," Reznor writes on the band's official website. "Last year's 'Lights in the Sky' tour was something I'm quite proud of and seems like the culmination of what I could pull off in terms of an elaborate production."
"It was also quite difficult to pull off technically and physically night after night and left us all a bit dazed," Reznor furthermore adds. "After some thought, we decided to book a last run of shows across the globe this year. The approach to these shows is quite different from last year - much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted. Fun for us and a different way for you to see us and wave goodbye."
No tour dates have been set on stones. In the meantime, they have at least eight live shows, one of which will be held on February 21 at RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane, Queensland, as announced on their MySpace.
Nine Inch Nails have released eight major studio albums, the latest called "The Slip". They won Best Metal Performance at 1993 Grammy Awards for "Wish", the single taken from their 1992 mini album "Broken (EP)".
