Nine Inch Nails Sell Scrapped Tour Merch for Charity
They would have played Toronto and Vancouver this fall
In an Instagram post, Trent Reznor wrote that all profit raised from merch sales would be donated to local food banks in the cities they were set to visit on tour.
The "Cold and Black and Infinite Tour" would have featured support from Savages' Jehnny Beth, and included stops in Vancouver and Toronto. "We were excited," Reznor wrote. "I'm bumming myself out right now."
Reznor also offered an update of what he's been up to since the release of Ghosts VI: Locusts and Ghosts V: Together, while recommending a fan-made concert film from their first "Cold and Black and Infinite" run that you can find below.
"The current plan is to finish up some scoring projects, work on my limited patience skills, deep dive into new NIN material, and hopefully be playing music live for you in 2021," he wrote. "In the meantime… listen to Jehnny's record (comes out June 12), continue to listen to Bowie, and don't be too hard on yourself."
Nine Inch Nails are slated to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. Read our Essential Guide to Nine Inch Nails.
I was just reminded today marks the two year anniversary of when we made you show up in person for the Cold and Black and Infinite tour. Strange to think about with the world the way it is now. I look forward to the day we can once again safely be in the same space and share the experience of screaming at the top of our lungs at each other. . Speaking of which, I suppose I can let you know we HAD a tour booked this fall that continued and expanded Cold and Black and Infinite. @jehnnybeth was coming along with us. We were excited. I'm bumming myself out right now. The what-could-have-been dates are below and we had some merch for that tour in production that we're putting in the store (link in bio) with all of NIN's profits going to local food banks in the cities we were going to play. . The current plan is to finish up some scoring projects, work on my limited patience skills, deep dive into new NIN material, and hopefully be playing music live for you in 2021. In the meantime… listen to Jehnny's record (comes out June 12), continue to listen to Bowie, and don't be too hard on yourself. . TR 5.19.20 .
