On This Day in 2005 Nine Inch Nails Ended Their Hiatus

In anticipation of concerts' impending return, we're manifesting positive vibes by looking back at some unforgettable and historic performances. On this day in 2005, Nine Inch Nails took to the stage at William Saroyan Theatre in Fresno, California for the first time in five years, kicking off the North American tour in support of their fourth studio album With Teeth.

The show, which marked the end of the band's hiatus and the start of a 163 date tour, was the first performance where Aaron North on guitar, Jeordie White on bass, and Alessandro Cortini on keyboards would join frontman Trent Reznor live.

Nine Inch Nails' 18-song setlist at the first date of the Live: With Teeth Tour kicked off with live debuts of "Love Is Not Enough" and "You Know What You Are?." Additional live debuts from With Teeth included "The Line Begins to Blur," "The Collector," "Home," "With Teeth" and "The Hand That Feeds." The setlist also included "Burn" from 1994's Natural Born Killers soundtrack- which had not made it's way onto the band's setlist since 1995. The set wrapped up with their most performed song to date, "Head Like a Hole."

Take a look at the full 18-song setlist below:

With Teeth has become Nine Inch Nail's 5th most performed album to date. "The Hand That Feeds" is the the most-performed track from that album.
