Video: Nine Inch Nails at Fuji Rock Festival ’13 — watch full 90-minute webcast

Nine Inch Nails at Fuji Rock

Nine Inch Nails fans around the world were crushed Friday when it turned out the live webcast of the resurrected band’s first performance since 2009 was only available in Japan. But the wait is now over, as Trent Reznor and Co.’s full 90-minute set at Fuji Rock Festival ’13 — which saw the live debut of current single “Came Back Haunted” and the world premieres of two other songs off the forthcoming Hesitation Marks (“Copy of A,” “Find My Way”) — has hit the web, thanks to YouTube user mikezak4, who edited together several different captures of the geoblocked webstream.

Check out the full performance and setlist below:

  1. I am a fan. I really am. I just think it’s time for Trent and the lads to give it away. There was a time and place for what they did, and it was envelope-pushing and innovative. But now after more than 20 years it just seems odd having a bunch of guys, some aged into their 40s, married, kids, etc, singing for the best part of 90 minutes about wanting to die. If this was a genuine maturity on show – the seven-man line-up featuring Adrian Belew, as mooted, etc, with a vastly different setlist – then fine. Do it all once more, film it for DVD and be done with it. But it’s just another go-round for a five-piece, with uninspired projections that merely hark back to 1994 all over again. Don’t get me wrong, the guys can write a tune, play well and so on. I just think it’s time to put it to bed and issue a final live DVD/live album set guys. Thanks for the memories!

    • Toby: That’s an interesting reaction, and I suspect you’ll take some heat for it from the faithful. It doesn’t really matter to me whether NIN keeps going, but I have to admit that I don’t pay attention to them anymore for the very reason you cite: I grew up. I’m just not that angry, messed up kid I was at 23 when “Pretty Hate Machine” came out. The band and their music just don’t speak to me anymore, and I’m kind of grateful for that.

      More power to ’em, I guess. But there is more to life.

  2. Apart from Pretty Hate Machine which i actually think is an electro classic, i’ve never been a massive NIN fan, but they sure do sound good here and the new songs are exciting, looking forward to the new album.

    Kind of annoying the way the stream kept screwing up though…

  3. El Arreglardo

    The magic seemed to fade after The Fragile, but I must admit the new lineup sounds good!
