NINE INCH NAILS
Nine Inch Nails will play Phones 4u Arena Manchester next May to showcase tracks from Hesitation Marks, their first album in five years.
Tickets for the Sunday 25 May show go on sale 9.00am Friday 22 November.
Nine Inch Nails deliver one of the best live shows on the planet, are considered a pioneer in the industrial music movement and have been highly influential in the evolution of electronic music.
The band, created by Trent Reznor (the only official member), released Hesitation Marks earlier this year to huge critical acclaim. Spin called it “the most important artistic statement from Reznor since the late 90s” and Rolling Stone hailed “one of his best” in a four-star lead review.
The band debuted in 1989 with its first single Down In It and have since racked up an impressive series of hits over the course of 20 years, from Head Like a Hole, Closer and Hurt (later recorded to much acclaim by Johnny Cash) to The Hand That Feeds, Only and Survivalism.
Supported by LA/NYC band Cold Cave, May’s date will be the group’s first Manchester show since 2009’s co-headline NIN/JA show alongside Jane’s Addiction.
