Nine Inch Nails at the Saddledome last night.
Having seen their photos from previous shows on the tour, I did feel slightly cheated since Calgary didn’t get NIN ‘in full effect’. No video screens, no LED curtains. I’m pretty sure it was thanks to the weight restriction on the roof of the ‘Dome, and I’m a little tired of us losing out because of it. We need a new arena.
That being said, Trent and the gang showed Cowtown how it’s done with lights and smoke. Considering how great it was, I’m sure my mind would have been blown by the full spectacle. We fled the front of the floor when a very rowdy mosh pit broke out (I think it was during Reptile), so I settled for straight on shots from about 50 ft. out. Yeah, I’m too old for that shit.
