Despite declaring that NIN's Bonnaroo gig was Nine Inch Nails' "last show ever in the United States," Trent Reznor is staging a series of 10 intimate club shows before taking an indefinite break from the road. The Wave Goodbye Tour will hit New York. Chicago and Los Angeles, playing venues as small as 500 seats. "NIN as a band that's on the road all the time is stopping," Reznor said in a recent interview. "I've reached the point where [touring] has invaded every other aspect of my life. I think creatively my time would be better spent on other stuff."
