Nine Inch Nails setlist was poor despite getting to see March Of The Pigs for the first time. No Hurt, No Closer, No Head Like A Hole...
They came on the stage without a drummer or synth player and did the first 3 songs with just a drum machine and Trent and co on a laptop at the front of the stage.
Then they kicked into it with very nice lighting etc.
Despite a dissapointing setlist they were still very good, not quite as good as when i last saw them.
Summing it all up, second time i've seen them, still not seen them play Hurt..
Foo Fighters were much better then Nine Inch Nails, wiped the floor with them. Dave Grohl ran off the stage and right near the crowd did some solo thing during "stacked actors", right beside the crowd. They gave us a talk about how special a night it was for them before kicking into the Arcade Fire cover.
Just before DOA, they started to play Van Halen, by which point i was aghast thinking "they are playing Van Halen!!!!" and then he stopped and said "that was Van Halen, we aren't going to be playing that for you tonight" then started playing some more of it on his own, (without singing) and got to roughly the chorus then played a bit of Eruption, then, "we won't play Van Halen for you, but we will play... DOA"
