Nine Inch Nails


I’ve been a huge Nine Inch Nails fan since Day 1.

Ever since catching the video for Down In It on MTV (back when MTV was good) I’ve followed them with a passion. I saw their first ever UK gig and have caught them many times since. They never let me down.

This week Evelyne & I headed over to Birmingham’s LG Arena to catch Mr Reznor and the band play a quite awe inspiring gig. I reviewed it HERE for the Birmingham Live site if you wanna know more.

I was one of only two photographers to shoot the gig. Here are a few photos from Sunday night’s show…

    Great photos mate. Can’t believe you pretty much had the photo pit to yourself. And got to meet the man too. What a night. I saw them play Birmingham for the first time at Goldwyns in 89/90 (?) This gig quite possibly topped that.

      I was at that Goldwyns gig too Lee. It was actually September 1991. I went home with Trent’s smashed up keyboard.

    Wow, awesome pics that have done the band justice, Steve. They are a band who always sound stunning and look stunning and you did an awesome job capturing that too.

    Absolutely loved the gig. Was probably even better than the amazing Reading `07 show where blew the Smashing Pumpkins off the stage!

    A few people don`t like the lack of crowd interaction, but when the overall experience is so good, who cares.

    Steve. Have you still got that smashed keyboard? I remember it clearly. He wiped it out with the mic stand. Keys flying everywhere.

      Believe it or not I left it at a rented house when I moved out! Doh!
