Trent Reznor Reveals Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction Tour Dates

March 4, 2009 9:12 AM ET

Trent Reznor has finally officially revealed the first dates for Nine Inch Nails' joint tour with the reunited Jane's Addiction on NIN.com this morning. As it stands now, the tour will kick off May 8th in West Palm Beach, Florida. "Here's what we can tell you so far," Rez writes (emphasis ours), so if your town isn't here on the initial schedule (sorry, Milwaukee, Boston), there's still hope. For some reason, Reznor's itinerary leaves out both bands' performances at the Sasquatch! Festival at the Gorge in Washington on May 24th, but that's probably just an oversight.

You'll notice that on May 29th, only Nine Inch Nails will take the stage in Chicago's Charter One Pavilion. Maybe it has something to do with a certain clause that appears in a certain contract, like the one that prevents a band (Jane's Addiction) from performing in a market (Chicago) for a certain amount of months before and after a festival (Perry Farrell's Lollapalooza). But who knows? Check out the dates below:

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
