Trent Reznor got mad, and now he’s getting even

Thanks to Burgo for the Twitter heads up on this:

UPDATED 1/12/08 (see below):

Remember the plans that Trent Reznor had for a 3-D concert film documenting the recent Nine Inch Nails Lights in the Sky tour? As you'll recall, the project fell through, allegedly due to Reznor's former label Interscope declining to fund the project at the last minute.

Barely a month later, it seems like Reznor has come up with Plan B, and the plan is one that fans will be happy with, for sure!

The internet is full of surprises these days.
I was contacted by a mysterious, shadowy group of subversives who SOMEHOW managed to film a substantial amount (over 400 GB!) of raw, unedited HD footage from three separate complete shows of our Lights in the Sky tour. Security must have been lacking at these shows because the quality of the footage is excellent.

If any of you could find a LINK to that footage I'll bet some enterprising fans could assemble something pretty cool.

Oh yeah, you didn't hear this from me.

To say that I am excited, would be an understatement! The 2008 tour was without question, one of my concert highlights of the year, and once again raised the bar visually far above all of the previous NIN shows I had seen in the past.

With rabidly talented fans of movies and music releasing new fan edits everyday (just check out some of the Star Wars fan edit stuff to see what I mean,) I look forward to viewing the forthcoming fruit of the efforts of many.

    Wow! I followed the link and was about to try downloading them until I read the words “the download may take days, even weeks.” Man, that’d be a cool thing to see, though! Thanks for the info!

  • Brian

    Yeah, you have to have an HD super computer to be able to dl that sucker… I need to find someone who can do that for me… Any takers?

    NIN was amazing this past summer and since seeing them live I have been on a NIN kick. I really want to see this footage and am shocked they released it for free.
