Nine Inch Nails’ hour-long set at Austin City Limits will premiere on April 5th on PBS as a prelude to the concert series’ 40th anniversary season. Filmed last November, the concert was NIN’s first for Austin City Limits, and to mark the occasion, Reznor reportedly told the crowd, “We didn’t want to make ACL a NIN show. We wanted to be out of our element.”
It’ll be interesting to see them fit on that stage and I’m most interested in seeing how the lighting designer did (or did not) conform to the normal show programming. Their stage show depends on a lot of strobing and backlights so this will definitely be interesting to see up close and personal.
