Bonnaroo 2009 - Nine Inch Nails's Last Show Ever
It was Sunday morning at exactly 12:41 am that I heard the news via twitter. (Yes, I check twitter in the wee hours of the morning. Be honest - you do it, too) It was at this time that I saw a tweet by Matt Jordan from You Ain't No PIcasso reporting Trent Reznor's announcement:
“I just realized this is our last show in the United States… ever. Don’t worry. We’ll keep on going, I just feel like I’ll go f***ing insane if I keep doing this.” - Trent Reznor
Having done six tributes to Nine Inch Nails, I think it's safe to say that we at Vitamin Records are huge fans and definitely bummed to hear this news. This announcement comes less than a week after his letter of retreat from social networking in which he basically calls twitter uses idiots. (not all of us are!) We totally understand Trent's point of view though - you can't live life based on what millions of people want you to do, even if you are a rockstar.
