Nine Inch Nails

none | Boulder Weekly

Monday and Tuesday, July 21-22:

Nine Inch Nails Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater. 7 p.m. 18300 W. Alameda Parkway, Morrison.

After a hiatus from 2009-2013, industrial rock pioneers Nine Inch Nails came back in the fall of last year with its eighth album release, Hesitation Marks. Reznor described the visually-lush art and lighting design of The Tension Tour that followed as an art project where he wanted the audience “holding their pee” so as to not miss anything. It worked. The tour sold out arenas and wowed critics nationwide. The show at Red Rocks is the third date on the follow-up to Tension, and it’s sure to be a worthy successor.

Also on the bill are grunge-heroes Soundgarden, and Oneohtrix Point Never, who replaced the originally-scheduled opener, Death Grips, who posted a note on Facebook saying they had broken up on July 2.
