Nine Inch Nails played at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 29th as part of the Lights In The Sky Tour. Does It Offend You, Yeah? was the opening act.


"Back in Pennsylvania! My home state. I spent 18 years trying to get the fuck outta here.  Here I am again.  No, I was from the cool
side, the western side. No, I'm just kidding, it sucked to be there.

Thank you for coming out tonight, it's been fun here, ok. We appreciate your support. I'd like to take one second to introduce my band.
Which side should I start on tonight? This side, or that side? Justin Medal-Johnson, bass. Hiding behind the keyboard, Alessandro ...
hairstylist? Drums, Josh Freese. And Robin Finck.
I'd like to thank out opening act, Does It Offend You, Yeah?. Please, if you like them, go out and buy their album. You can steal
everything I put out. I don't care anymore.

I'm starting a very, a very bad trend of talking at shows, which I'll probably stop, probably after today. Someone asked me...you know,
we've been doing this for a while...Someone asked me, you know, when you look out at the audience, does it look the same as it did years
ago? And there's one difference that I've noticed. And that is uh...like I went and I saw Rage Against The Machine the other day at
uh...where was that?...at Lollapalooza and it was weird, we were on stage watching out and there was a million people and it looked great
and it kicked ass, but I noticed it was all dudes, all dudes, as far as you could see, just shirtless sweaty guys. And when we started
out it was all dudes, they were like vampire dudes, and it was all guys. Now a lot of, a lot of hot chicks come out. I don't know if
that's good or bad. They're blowing the mystique.

Let's go all dark in here, shall we? Let's kill the lights."
  • In the middle of "Down In It" a fan managed to get onstage. He kneeled down before Reznor for a moment then ran off right before several security guards tackled/escorted him off the stage. Reznor looks on while performing the rest of the song.
