All in good time, no doubt.

There's nothing worse than cramming four albums into your brain a week before a gig.

Awesome, well done!  Good thing about NIN is they always chuck some slow ones in there to calm the mosh down for a while so you can catch your breath :)

GREAT GIG

People complaining about the setlist are just selfish. The band owes us nothing.

Very good setlist IMO, covered all bases, including the Natural Born Killers sountrack song "Burn", which tickled my pickle no end!

Sound was pretty bad. Not harsh like I've been warned about, but just too quiet! I can't believe I just said that, because I hate over-loud gigs. Could have had more punch.

But the band were Uh-Ma-Zing!  I left quite satisfied.

Rumor has it there were THREE more songs on the setlist as encore, but penciled in for possible encores.
I don't think Trent took kindly to the booing upon his announcement it's probably their last NZ gig.  But what were people supposed to do? Cheer???

All-in-all, glad I went, no regrets, had an amazing time. And got engaged!

Trent must have known I wasn't at the gig, and thats why they never did the encore ;). He obviously knew that if they played Dead Souls at a gig I couldn't get to in NZ, I'd be freaking angry!

There were indeed three songs in the possible encore - they were Reptile, Meet Your Master, and Dead Souls.

Even if Trent "wasn't feeling it" that night, he still put on a solid and professional show.
Good to see Robin Fink up there. He's got SO much presence.
