Setlist Psychic: Nine Inch Nails "Cold And Black And Infinite" North American Tour

Nine Inch Nails dropped their ninth studio album Bad Witch back in June, and we’ve been itching for the tour to start ever since.
The Cold and Black and Infinite North American Tour kicks off in a few days, and thanks to our Setlist.fm data–uh, I mean, my mystifying psychic abilities– I have figured out what you’ll probably hear if you’re one of the lucky ones in attendance.
You’ll Definitely Hear
· "Wish"
· "Less Than"
· "God Break Down the Door"
· "Hurt"
· "Head Like a Hole"
· "March of Pigs"
· "The Hand that Feeds"
· "Ahead of Ourselves"
· "The Lovers"
· "Closer"
A typical setlist from this year looks something like this and contains songs off of The Downward Spiral, Bad Witch, The Fragile and Add Violence.
The data– er… my brain– tells me that NIN will start off with songs like “Branches/Bones,” “March of the Pigs,” “Piggy” and “The Frail” and close the set with tracks “Head Like a Hole” or “Wish.”
You Might Hear
· "Shit Mirror"
· "I’m Afraid of Americans" (David Bowie cover)
· "Copy of A"
· "Reptile"
· "Piggy"
The band has a history of playing David Bowie and Gary Numan covers, so don’t be surprised if you hear Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans” or Numan’s “Metal" at one of the shows.
You Probably Won’t Hear
· "Came Back Haunted"
· "Good Soldier"
· "Letting You"
· "Terrible Lie"
· "1,000,000"
· "Something I Can Never Have"
If you’ve been to their shows in the past, you’ll know that Nine Inch Nails usually performs “Hurt” for their encore. What you might not know is this - Contrary to popular belief, the song isn’t originally Johnny Cash’s, but NIN’s from 1994’s The Downward Spiral.
NIN frontman Trent Reznor was flattered by Cash’s 2002 cover.
“Having Johnny Cash, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time, want to cover your song, that’s something that matters to me. It’s not so much what other people think but the honor that this guy felt it was worthy of interpreting.”
