Nine Inch Nails & Jane's Addiction

In the world of concert news there are a couple notable bands that will be hitting the road soon.

Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction have announced a North American tour, which includes a May 26 stop at Englewood’s Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater.

NIN is touring on their recent album The Slip, a free album offered on NIN’s website. Jane’s Addiction is releasing a four-disc completion set called a cabinet of curiosities spanning their carrier from 1986-1991.

Another big band reuniting is The Pixies who have announced a European tour for this summer. It will be the first time the band has performed together since 2007. The tour, which includes the Isle of Wright Festival, doesn’t include any U.S. dates yet.

The group, which inspired Nirvana, has had a rocky past that has included some ugly breakups and each member has had their own personal issues.

The band’s history is documented in the fantastic documentary “loudQUIETloud: a film about the Pixies” which goes behind the scenes and provides a personal look at the band’s 2004 reunion tour.

  1. Pixies ’05 @ Red Rocks was one of the best shows I’ve seen. I’ll definitely have to put that movie in my queue.
