Nine Inch Nails reveals dates for the “Cold and Black and Infinite North America 2018” tour, launching with two nights in Phoenix in September and wrapping with four nights in Los Angeles in December.  Jesus and Mary Chain supports, and fans will need to buy tickets in person when presales begin next week.

Nine Inch Nails has released the cover art for the band’s new album.  Bad Witch arrives June 22 and completes the trilogy that began with 2016’s Not The Actual Events followed by 2017’s Add Violence.

Nine Inch Nails co-headlined with Soundgarden when it toured North America in Summer 2014.  However, data was submitted to Pollstar for the band’s July 2017 headlining appearance at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, Calif., where fans purchased all 2,378 tickets and the night’s gross reached $78,474.

The North America routing follows Nine Inch Nail’s trek through Europe that begins June 22 at London’s Meltdown Festival.  Actually, Euro fests are a large part of NIN’s journey across the Pond, with the band, including Roskilde Fest in Denmark; Eurockeennes in France; and Montreux Jazz in Switzerland.  The band wraps its European travels with a July 14 stop at Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Spain.  Come August NIN will play shows in Thailand and Japan.

In addition to Phoenix and Los Angeles, the North America run includes multiple nights in Morrison (Denver), Atlanta, New York, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans and Irving, Texas (Dallas).

It’s no secret that NIN’s Trent Reznor isn’t exactly a fan of third-party ticketing.  Therefore, fans will need to buy tickets for the North America tour during “The Physical World” presale events taking place at the venues May 19, except for the Red Rocks show in Colorado outside Denver which will hold the presale at the Denver Coliseum box office May 20. 

All tickets, from front-and-center to the very last row, will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Limited quantities of tickets may be released through additional channels.  More info can be found on the other side of this link.
