Proof

Here are some citations for the show dates:

Nov. 4, Houston, Numbers - http://numbersnightclub.com/history/ http://www.theninhotline.net/nin_historian/tickets/11_4_95.gif

Nov. 10, Pensacola, Bayfront: http://www.mtv.com/news/1458727/nine-inch-nails-annoy-helmet-whitney-houston-exhales-dogg-pound-1-this-week-in-1995/ Nov. 6 + 5 days means Nov. 11, but as per "burning souls" site, i'm going to put this at Nov. 10, so that St. Petersburg can still slot into the 11th. And "burnings souls" does the have dates correct for the last 3 gigs, which are confirmed by the newspapers/flyer. It's also possible St. Petersburg was cancelled.

Nov. 12, Orlando, Edge: https://stars.library.ucf.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2336&context=centralfloridafuture

Shows impacted by TR's voice

It may be safe to assume the tour resumed in Ft. Lauderdale, since Orlando shows up again later as though it was rescheduled. Perhaps Pensacola, St. Petersburg and Orlando were the only shows to be affected.

We can see from this that the Ft. Lauderdale and Miami Beach shows went on as planned: http://member.nin.com/member/DNB_MAKES_ME_SPEED Piggy (talk) 21:21, 29 November 2016 (PST)


See my section above for pretty definite proof about the Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami Beach dates.

I am, however, skeptical about the Dec. Florida dates. Regarding dates being rescheduled, etc., I don't think this went the way a normal tour does. They were announcing these dates the day of or day before on local radio, with special vouchers to get tickets. Therefore, for a postponement, they didn't really have to do complex rescheduling or refunding of tickets, since no one had tickets yet and the show probably hadn't even been announced yet. That's why I'm skeptical about the Dec. Orlando date being a "reschedule". The newspaper article above pretty clearly depicts the Orlando date happening on Nov. 12 (as opposed to the originally itineraried date of Nov. 10). Why would they be playing Orlando again less than a month later?

On the NIN Historian page (from which all these dates originally came), the Nov. dates are all backed by an official NIN itinerary (the $ symbol notation). And, as I mentioned above, those Florida dates were just postponed because of the voice thing (and corroborated by the newspaper articles). In contrast, the December dates listed seem to be solely based on this one hazy recollection. Although he seems pretty sure of the Dec. 6 Orlando date, all the rest of the post is super-sketchy. I think he may just be mis-remembering the Nov. dates.

So I'm starting to be of the opinion that the Dec. FL dates, more likely than not, did not happen. I went looking for some evidence in the Palm Beach Post, and they covered NIN pretty extensively in 1995, but not a single mention of a club show in West Palm Beach in Dec.
