Intense, cryptic and basically amazing is the best way to describe the newly released, Nine Inch Nails European concert footage. The new again, classic footage is released on Feb. 11, 2013, and is a mind-blowing reminder of the sheer intensity, unmatched style of music that NIN captures and owns.
The NIN brand of music can't be duplicated. In the tour video footage, the reaction of the crowd to the music, is absolutely priceless. They are witnessing something phenomenal. The unearthed concert footage depicts concerts in Sydney and New York, the footage is released by EchoingTheSound.org.
Some era footage of Nine Inch Nails circa 1999-2000 has recently been unearthed, according to Spin. Two videos, the band’s set at the 2000 Big Day Out gig in Australia, as well a gig in New York from 1999 labeled the Fragility 1.0 Special, give you about an hour’s worth of Trent and company performing such staples as “Head Like a Hole” and “Hurt”, as well as songs from the then-new the Fragile."
Spin Magazine reports, "It's impossible to over-emphasize the rapt, hoarse devotion in the voices of the fans passed a microphone during Nine Inch Nails' set at Sydney, Australia's Big Day Out Festival in January 2000. As Anti-quiet points out, the concert's professionally shot video is one of two recently dug up by users on a NIN fan forum Echoing the Sound. The other is NIN's December 1999 Fragility 1.0 TV special, which compiled footage from Trent Reznor and company's European tour in support of that year's double-album The Fragile."
