Jump to: navigation, search

The second part of the Self Destruct Tour, often referred to as the Further Down The Spiral Tour, took place between August 1994 and February 1995 in North America in support of The Downward Spiral. The tour is part of the Self Destruct Touring Cycle. Opening acts for this tour were Hole, Jim Rose Circus, Marilyn Manson, The Melvins and Pop Will Eat Itself.


Stage Set-Up

The stage setup for this tour was somewhat basic. An onstage lighting detail was provided by very tall columns with a single spotlight atop each one. There was a large draped fabric backdrop and linen-like fabric hung across the top of the stage structure. There was also a three piece scrim at the front of the stage that would be pulled away during the first song. The drums and main keyboard were both on large wooden risers.

This was the first NIN tour to feature a projection screen for three slow songs in the middle of the show, in this case "Eraser," "Hurt," and "The Downward Spiral." "Eraser" was accompanied by visuals of the desert, "Hurt" by compiled stock footage of various bleak imagery such as war atrocities and decaying animals, and "The Downward Spiral" by a visual of a wall that is made to appear doused in blood during the song's climax.
