Here’s the Setlist from Nine Inch Nails’ First Show In Four Years


Last night saw legendary industrial act Nine Inch Nails play their first live show since December of 2018. Now, fans can check out the setlist below, as well as fan-shot footage.

What’s especially cool is that Nine Inch Nails busted out some uncommon tracks and a cover of David Bowie’s “Fashion” at the show. The set definitely includes the band’s big hits, but it also has a bunch of weirder and more uncommon favorites. Gotta love “The Perfect Drug” live.

This might be Nine Inch Nails’ first live show of 2022 — and 2019, and 2020, and 2021 — but it certainly won’t be their last. The band have a number of festival dates lined up, including at this year’s Welcome to Rockville festival, where they stepped in to replace Foo Fighters after the tragic passing of legendary drummer Taylor Hawkins.

Rockville issued the following statement regarding Foo Fighters dropping off the bill and NIN stepping in:

In light of the tragic passing of Taylor Hawkins, the FF have cancelled their 22 performances, including WTR. We are sending love and light to the entire FFfamily during this incredibly difficult time. We appreciate your patience in any updates. RIP Taylor

Guess that’s kind of a bummer if you’re into homespun arena rock and not emotional industrial, but if the footage below shows us anything, it’s that fans will be in for a great show no matter what.
