Permalink Nine Inch Nails @ Red Rocks (Night #2)

And we are back! This is not a repeat.

Nine Inch Nails

Last night was great! But when I said I was going a 2nd night, the critics said, "Why would you want to see the same show twice?". Well, that's easy! 2 reasons: 1) They are amazing. 2) It ain't gonna be the same show. And it wasn't! Trent came out in some big shit kicker boots and I figured that was the sign.

The vibe was totally different. Much more vintage NIN. Only "Find My Way" from the current album was played.

But the bigger news of the night was that I took a date! Reagan said she wanted to go see NIN play after seeing some of the concert video earlier in the year. Plus, as we drive to soccer, I often crank up NIN to get her ready to play. She enjoys this type of music. She loves loud stuff.

So we got there later, got her a shirt, and got into position right before NIN played for maximum concentration of experience. She was blown away by how loud it was at the show. She could "feel the music".

I was a little bummed she didn't hear "Copy of A" which is a favorite song of hers. But "Head Like a Hole" was and that's her 2nd favorite. So her first concert ever was a success and she gets to tell people that she saw Nine Inch Nails @ Red Rocks for concert numero uno. That's about as badass as it gets.

Well, usually I leave a lot of concerts, especially NIN, wanting more. The show was good and it could go on. After 2 nights in a row, I felt very satisfied. NIN might not be back around for a while but I sure got my fill over the last 2 days. Perfect summer concert(s)!
