Nine Inch Nails Offers Cancelled 2020 Tour Shirt Sale for Charity

If you haven’t had the chance to catch Nine Inch Nails live in the last few years, you are seriously missing out. Oscar winner Trent Reznor and company have completely and utterly kicked ass on the last two tours the band has embarked on, 2018’s Cold And Black And Infinite was something I’ll remember forever.

The more-than-industrial rock band was set to embark on yet another tour in 2020, but, as with pretty much every other live event (including Burning Man, Wasteland Weekend, and all the other tours we wanted to see), that tour has been cancelled.

NIN being the thoughtful folk they are have a way to make fans feel a little less sad about missing the shows this fall, with a special sale.

On the official Nine Inch Nails website, fans have the option to purchase an official 2020 tour shirt. The back of which has a list of what cities and dates the shows would’ve happened in and on.

The kicker here is that the money from these sales goes to benefit food banks in the markets where they would’ve played.

You can order both men’s and women’s options on the official NIN website here.

Reznor himself announced this special offer on the band’s official Instagram.

Keep Going!

I was just reminded today marks the two year anniversary of when we made you show up in person for the Cold and Black and Infinite tour. Strange to think about with the world the way it is now. I look forward to the day we can once again safely be in the same space and share the experience of screaming at the top of our lungs at each other. . Speaking of which, I suppose I can let you know we HAD a tour booked this fall that continued and expanded Cold and Black and Infinite. @jehnnybeth was coming along with us.  We were excited. I’m bumming myself out right now. The what-could-have-been dates are below and we had some merch for that tour in production that we’re putting in the store (link in bio) with all of NIN’s profits going to local food banks in the cities we were going to play. . The current plan is to finish up some scoring projects, work on my limited patience skills, deep dive into new NIN material, and hopefully be playing music live for you in 2021. In the meantime… listen to Jehnny’s record (comes out June 12), continue to listen to Bowie, and don’t be too hard on yourself. . TR 5.19.20 . If you’re feeling nostalgic, check out the incredible fan-made full length concert film at link in bio. . P.S. How in the fuck did you pull this off? . Sep 15 + 16  San Diego, CA – Open Air Theatre Sep 19  Los Angeles, CA – LA State Historic Park Sep 22 + 23 + 24  Vancouver, BC – Queen Elizabeth Theatre Sep 26 + 28 + 29  Seattle, WA – Paramount Theatre Oct 1  Seattle, WA – Paramount Theatre Oct 8 + 9  Kansas City, MO – Uptown Theatre Oct 11 + 12  Minneapolis, MN – The Armory Oct 15  Grand Rapids, MI – Deltaplex Oct 17  Indianapolis, IN – Indiana Farmers Coliseum Oct 19 + 20 + 21  Philadelphia, PA – The Met Oct 23 + 24 + 26 + 27 + 29  Toronto, ON – Venue TBA .

We’re still pretty sad that this year’s Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been cancelled, because NIN was going to be inducted alongside Depeche Mode.
