Review By TJ Miller of Still Remains:

On February 23rd, 2006 in Ft Wayne, Indiana's own Memorial Coliseum, no one knew quite what to expect from one Mr. Trent Reznor, the mastermind and genius behind Nine Inch Nails. From the moment their headlining set started with "Mr. Self-Sestruct," the first track off of the multi-platinum "The Downward Spiral," one would say that Reznor was definitely in good form. "Sin," and then "Terrible Lie," would follow from NIN's debut, "Pretty Hate Machine."

Trent's guitars and mic stand combined with Aaron North's out of control stage antics were forces to be reckoned with. Was the band angry tonight or just really alive? Probably the latter as Trent took the time to explain to the crowd: "I’ve got to be honest with you people. Sometimes when you are on tour, you play these shows and there is something missing... Sometimes you play shows that are fun and right on key. Tonight is definitely one of those nights," he said, while thanking the crowd for coming out.

Crowd favorites such as "Closer, Head like a Hole, Something I Could Never Have, Only, The Hand That Feeds, and Hurt," were moving to everybody. But the highlights of this particular show were more of Trent's personal favorites including "Burn, Eraser, and Reptile."

This was easily one of the best concerts I have ever seen, but the only disappointing thing about it was
the band didn't trash very much of their equipment.
