As part of the unexpected Broken performance to open the concert, Nine Inch Nails played their Grammy-winning song “Happiness in Slavery” for the first time since a December 1995 concert, according to Setlist.fm.
Broken track “Last” and its cover of Adam & the Ants’ “Physical (You’re So)” also received their first live airing in nearly a decade. The gig also featured the debut performance of “This Isn’t the Place” off 2017’s Add Violence.
The 26-date Cold and Black and Infinite Tour, featuring special guests Jesus and Mary Chain, continues Friday night at Comerica Theatre and currently concludes with a four-night stand at Los Angeles’ Palladium from December 7th to 12th.
In June, Nine Inch Nails released Bad Witch, the third and final installment in a promised trilogy of releases that included 2016’s Not the Actual Events and Add Violence.
