2008/08/25 Toledo, OH
Nine Inch Nails played at the Seagate Convention Center in Toledo, Ohio, on August 25, 2008 as part of the Lights In The Sky Tour. A Place To Bury Strangers was the opening act.
The Seagate Convention Center has a capacity of 5,161, much smaller than the other venues on the tour. As a result, the band was unable to utilize the drop screens and some of their lights. The day of the show, a statement was posted on ETS:
- Pre-show apology:
- This show will be compromised from a production standpoint. The venue is simply not big enough to accommodate the full production. We should have never been booked here and I apologize in advance. We will give it our best."
A view from the concert - These problems were mentioned at the start of the show. During the performance, Trent Reznor spoke about the issues with the venue, which seemed to bother him greatly at the start of the show. He stated that the setlist was changed and talked about Year Zero, at one point joking that all of the songs performed in the 2nd half of the show were going to be from Year Zero or Ghosts, after the crowd cheered loudly when he asked how many people had actually bought those albums.
