Nine Inch Nails played at the Charter One Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois, on May 29, 2009 as part of the Wave Goodbye Tour. Street Sweeper Social Club also performed.


  • The soundcheck was "Home," "Non-Entity," "The Good Soldier," and "1,000,000."
  • NIN did not play the whole set because of a curfew. The other songs that were supposed to be played were "Echoplex," "Dead Souls," and "In This Twilight."
  • Trent Reznor forgot the words to nearly the entire second verse of "Terrible Lie," repeating the first line in the first verse, "Why are you doing this to me?" and the rest of the verse played out something like this: "Am I not....mmmmmmmmmmmm. Ah. - I ama blahh, a dop a dobb beleb." and finishing the verse with the correct lyric: "Can this world really be as sad as it -fucking- seems?" Reznor, later that night, said to the audience with good humor, "…that's how it's done now."
  • Reznor commented on it being a particularly cold night, saying: "It's our summer tour, and I forgot to bring my ski mask."
