In “Cleveland rocks!” news, Nine Inch Nails have scheduled a pair of concerts in The Forest City supported by alternative icons Pixies. The shows will take place September 21st and 23rd, and the band has specified that these are “the only NIN headline shows of 2021.”
The Nails haven’t been back to The Cleve since their 2020 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. They’ll be a short drive away from the Hall at the Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica, and fans who make the trek might have more than just a museum display to look forward to. Almost immediately after bandmembers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won this year’s Oscar for Best Original Score, Reznor said, “We are planning on working on Nine Inch Nails material as soon as, probably, tomorrow.” If they come up with anything they like between now and September, those Cleveland shows will be the first chance to hear it live.
NIN return to Cleveland for the first time since the band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Visit the R+RHOF museum display & see the only NIN headline shows of 2021.
