Trent Reznor and company confirm their first dates of 2013.
Early this week, Reznor confirmed that Nine Inch Nails would return with their first concerts since 2009’s Wave Goodbye tour, with a series of Summer gigs, a “full-on arena tour” of the US in Autumn, and worldwide dates in 2014.
The first two gigs confirmed are an appearance at Fuji Rock Festival and Germany’s Rock ‘n’ Heim Festival. Fuji Rock takes place July 26–28 at Niigata Prefecture, Japan and counts Björk among the headliners. Rock ‘n’ Heim takes place August 17-18 at Baden-Württemberg’s Hockenheimring.
The latest incarnation of Reznor’s longtime project includes Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew, Telefon Tel Aviv’s Josh Eustis, and former NIN touring partners Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.
